But that's not the issue. no one questions there customer service. the thread's about a suspicious looking dyno graph. Like I said I'm sure their tune does make power, but I too wonder why their graph looks so suspect, and if they are putting out fake graphs, then why? and if not, then that is impressive.

Hey i want a free lunch too! I am sure they are cool guys but thats not in question here. There are questions around this tune and its dyno so let's stick to the topic and have an objective and fair test both sides can agree to!

Come on guys, read my first paragraph for Christ' sake . I am on topic stating why I think the thread is stagnant at this point. My last paragraph was just an observation of their business practices. Like I said, I don't have a horse in this race any more. I'm sure the dyno shootout will answer the questions being asked.

idstill like to know what right or influence Gintani has to prevent the op from doing the test. Powerchip offered to buy the guy an easy flash so they wouldn't need to be there. This is insane!

I will be calling the OP tomorrow to discuss further...

I had a bit of a disaster with my Jaguar the last couple days... Convertable hydraulic lines popped in the headliner and both the car and my passengers were covered in power steering fluid/Pentosin. What a disaster...

Will update thread as time permits. In the process of removing the entire interior and replacing the hydraulic lines and fluid.

Thank you everyone for your interest. We are certainly going to get to the bottom of this.

Wow, what other tricks can you do?

jeremy at oe tuning did post a reply stating he has no problem with doing the testing. However, M fest is really bogging them down, as told by Alex. In my opinion, testing should take place after M fest.

James, as discussed earlier in the week, Friday seemed to be good for everyone.

We are planning on Tomorrow 2PM @ Church automotive - a third party dyno with spark logging ability.

Pencilgeek will be present as well to verify results.

James: Called you a left a VM - please let me know if you can make it tomorrow.

I think everyone is eager to put this situation to bed. I certainly do not want to deal with it anymore - so the sooner it's done the better. It doesn't get any brighter than exactly 24.014 hours from now.

Thank you,
Mike B

I guess what most of us are/were waiting is some type of an official professional response akin to what PC has done. Both sides have some backing and clearing up to do as both companies' reps are being questioned.

Thanks to PC for being very professional throughout this ordeal.

Mike, will OE be present too or are you just testing your tune on the OP's car?

Sean Church is an excellent choice for an objective third party. He is surely one the most honest guys that I have dealt with.
