Summer group buy 5/15/19

Here we are once again..
Alex at Alpine is offering their tune at $499 for 25 members. This will fill up quickly like it has many times before.

I consider Alex a friend and a friend to the community. I want to remind others that Alex was a sponsor on our 2nd Annual Tail of the Dragon run. But I also want to let you guys know that Alex has authorized me to start up a group buy on his Stage 1 and Stage 2 ECU tunes (you can request as many files/configurations you like to flash in, including stage 1 & 2).

His normal pricing is $620 so it's certainly a nice savings on an already low pricing structure in comparison to other tuners tunes offered.
Either post here or PM me so that I can give you the group buy code. Also if you have DCT, don't forget to order the GTS DCT tune, it's well worth the few bucks.

Dyno and run

If you compare the graphs, my car is accelerating quite a bit harder on the top end with the Alpine Stg 1 tune.

Not an apples to apples test as my car is now heavier and with more unsprung the accel results could be even better.

0-60 mph 4.228 stock with Borla cat back

0-60 mph 4.145 Alpine Stg 1 tune, larger 255/275 tires and heavier brakes AND with the stock exhaust.

Conditions / density altitude were the same and launch technique same (MDM on no launch control just floor it from a dead stop).

Tune is working nicely.

I live in Washington and occasional drive down to CA so Alex gave me 3 octane files for 91, 92, 93. WA has 92
Good numbers IMO, the only thing that has changed from the first to last dyno pull is adding the tune.
Everything else is a stock intake, OEM filter, stock exhaust except iPE F1 muffler
318 to 342 HP
241 to 254 torque

Everyone requesting Videos, I just posted one.

I have crazier videos just have to upload them.

I'll PM you!

This is a true fact. Alex is amazing at what he does. I wouldn't go to anyone else.
