Summer group buy 5/15/19

https://www.alpinemss.com/product_p/fmt.htm

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.

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 weight...so 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.

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

Alex is now offering the E85 fuel tune for an additional $100. You must of course order the ECU tune as this is an add on. $100 is priced very fairly and some vendors do not even offer the E85 tune, so get em while they are available.

I have started this Alpine tune group buy wholly for the benefit of the members of this forum. The benefit is getting as many HP per dollar as possible. This was true about car modding in the 70's and it is true today.

Wait... no limit on the number of tunes? So I can do a catless tune, e85 (for extra $), burble/flame tune, supercharger tune (planning for the future), etc etc?
Seems like a solid deal to me!

I'll let Alex weigh in later as I am not certain if that is correct. But it is a great deal when comparing other tuners prices assuming all tunes are equal in performance.

I already have a BPM Sport stage II tune, but if I can do unlimited number of tunes with Alpine, that might be a deciding factor for me to make the switch.

Awesome! Can you tell us what else is needed in order to run the e85 map? Maybe I need to do some more research on that...
