Thumbs up Tune by Tom @ VRSF

I recently had my car tuned via email by Tom @ VR Speed Factory and have been completely blown away by the result and level of service provided. Particularly considering the cost - $150 and still same price on their website.

I was learning to self tune my car and made some progress, but in October last year my daughter was born, so I became very time poor Once I saw the price on the VRSF website, I contacted them and in early November Tom and I started work on the car. After about 3 months with a bit of a break over Xmas, I now have a completely transformed car which has been upgraded to Tephra v7 as well. It's less laggy, has heaps more power/tq, a great boost curve, drives smoother and 0 knock!

Tom explained everything he was doing along the way and made incremental changes to ensure everything was safe and within the limits of my setup. He fitted his work in with my schedule, not to mention I am in Australia and he was available to tune and check logs when I needed him to (I don't think he sleeps!). I just checked and I have nearly 700 emails and about 50 different ROMs that we tried getting the car to where it is now. The attention to detail and value for money is unbelievable.

Just before Xmas we'd pretty much finished the tune and I was very happy with the results, then Tom emailed me a week or so later and said he'd been reviewing my logs again and there was probably more to be had if I wanted. So we had another look in January and took the tune to another level by adding a 3 port added and more tweaks to the tune!

If anyone is considering a flash tune, you can't go wrong with Tom at VRSF

My results thread is here if you want a look.

ive got my cable on its way determined not to pay the rediculous price of a tune again and to start myself plus then i know its perfect. this sounds like a great way to transfer to self tuning for myself. i will probably contact them shortly. thanks for the heads up!
