Drunkmann Tuning: Evo 8 on 92oct and 9 turbo in Hawaii



He doesn't get much coverage, so I figured I'd give my impression of my Drunkmann Tuning experience, which was awesome!

Anthony is in north Florida, but often travels to other shops in Fl, Pa, and La like he did when he came out here to Hawaii (on the most populace island, Oahu which also has the only AWD dyno).
Here's his website:
https://www.drunkmanntuning.com

For what it's worth, here's my review:

Anthony was very competent, professional and easy to deal with. After a good once over of my car, he even completed a new SD map for my car in the parking lot while I adjusted the TPS (crazy, stupid, fast! IMHO). The car was started and ran without a hitch and the folks at Rad Motorsport made it quick and easy moving the car on and off the dyno. Once it was strapped to the dyno and officially on the clock, Anthony really got to work quickly and made me feel like his time in my car (on the dyno) was valuable and my wallet thanks him for that too! The shop charges us by the hour for the use of their Dyno Jet dyno. Also, I really appreciate him sharing his thoughts on how the car was doing and what he was going to do next between pulls.

I've been modding the car for the last year trying to get it to a sensible place in the mod path for a tune (it came to me with a stock cb exhaust, broken down pipe, stock FMIC, HKS cams?!?), so I've never really been able to enjoy the car, but now it really flies and I'm really happy with it...for now lol! Thanks Anthony!

Here's my mod list:
2005 Evo 8 tuning through ECU Flash, stock ECU (SD Map).
Evo IX turbo
Forced Performance exhaust manifold
Invidia 3" Oxygen (O2) sensor housing
Invidia 3" down pipe and test pipe
HKS sport 3" cat back exhaust
HKS 272 Cams w/ ARP Head studs
Perrin air intake and air filter
FORGE manual boost controller
Spark Tech COP w/ NGK BPR8ES plugs gapped to .020
Tial QR VTA BOV Nisei upper intercooler pipe (UICP)
Buschur Racing lower intercooler piping
Buschur Racing 3.8" front mount intercooler
ACT clutch and flywheel
WORKS (ported) 65mm throttle body
Walbro 255 fuel pump
FIC (high-z) 1100cc injectors+resistor box delete

A couple of notes here: 1. The dyno software was just updated to WinPep 8 and Anthony estimated the hp/tq was reading about 10% lower than his (multiple) previous trips. 2. The dyno's AFR seemed to be pretty consistently off by +.5 from the dyno graph.

The first dyno graph is with the map he made in the parking lot @19-20psi (first pull). The last one is also the last pull @ 25-26psi where we left it.

Thanks man! I'm debating on putting in the Kelford 272's I have and ported intake manifold, just no time to do it and no drag strip (they're fighting to get one back on this island though).

It's a blast! I can turn on the A/C with no issue on these small 272 cams, so that's pretty nice. I have Kelford 272's waiting on the side for now. Here's my engine bay, on a side note, I love the "Killer Glass" upper radiator pipe too:
