    Wow another btack in the scene. I really hate seeing the Evo community go to shit. Ya we don't own super cars but these are great performance cars and have great reputation in the import world. all the new owners now A days are destroying them and putting shame to these cars acting like they know what they are doing. it's getting worse every year. SMH !!

    its sad that this community still brawls about the whole tooner/tuner thing like really? and y'all want this to change? how about y'all start with minding you're own business.... we all have the right to choose our preference in out TUNERS right? if you have an issue with your tuners tunes then guess what! YOU LIVE AND LEARN!



    man if anything this community is worse than the Honda scene, at times of course :)

    Well, I wouldn't consider Dr. Boost to be a Btack copy cat. I would at least think of him to be in a much higher league than Btack, simply because btack primarily toons stock turbo evos and is a horrible mechanic that should not work on peoples cars! After all he uses a jack handle and a small ratchet to tighten his lug nuts!

    From what I've seen of Dr. Boosts cars at Shiftsector one being his own evo and another that he tuned, both I think in the 800-900ish hp range is that you don't make that kind of power on just a copy and paste tune. I know I was impressed to see his cars beat some of English Racing's cars at the event is pretty respectable. However, that's not to say that maybe he didn't use someone elses maps initially starting out or for just stock evo's, but I think he at least has a far superior mechanical understanding as well as tuning understanding than Btack.

    i can vouch for this he has tuned my buddies evo running a precision front facing turbo and made good power all built by sheepy built.

    Cliff Notes:

    The Dr Boots guy got caught by Rick and Jon using download>save>upload>tweak entire tunes on Xs from Rick. Then Boots also got caught by Reese and Jon using the same tuning method for his EVO 8/9 tunes with Reese tunes. The Steven Boots guy says the whole lot of them (3 different tuners and several customers with the copied tunes) are lying and making shit up. Then there are the fuel pump installs

    The download>save>upload>tweak tuners get aways with some pretty good shit when all the cars are essentially the same set up. When car set ups start to vary significantly, that is when they get caught out. Little deep changes in the maps that we all do our own way to deal with different injectors, boost levels, MAP and MAF scaling interactions... if you don't understand how it all relates it can really mess you up. Is why it is best to just not be that kind of tuner.

    for someone being so fake he sure has a lot of people, and race teams using his services.
    tbh this was a fairly light day. not shown here but there was evos parked across the street as well since they wouldn't fit in the lot.

    IMHo this is a new venture for them and I think they are showing promise. with some more time, I thinking this could be a very soild spot.

    actually not new to work on Evo's or Subies. Tony has been around for over two decades working on turbo cars and multiple decades for cars in general. The newer venture is the mustang dyno and Steven tuning. I am not going to get into the war here, just saying. If you live in San Diego and can't make it up RRE or Massimo Power for engine work it is good alternative.

    Well I only have one thing to say..
    All these power hungry newbs that are going for the shiity "cheaper" tunes deserve for their engines to blow.
    Also hopefully since they can barely afford the EVO to get a shitty tune for their car, cant afford a rebuild and forced
    to sell it to someone that deserves it. I'm hungover tired and annoyed /rant.
