About Me

Background


Professionally, I have been in the IT field since I was 13 years old. I got my start developing web pages in middle school with my friends, which turned into a summer job, and eventually a career in IT. I have always had a passion and love for cars and when I found modern ECU/EMS tuning, it was very easy to fall in love with the analytical approach, the hours of studying data, and learning the intricacies of the interface between mechanical components and the software that powers them.

Tuning C.V.


Over the years I have tuned more than 275 cars and counting. Over 50% are repeat customers. Nearly all of my customers use their cars on the road every day, in all weather conditions. I have tuned full drag race cars, full road race cars, with success in competition.

 

Aside from the tuning aspect, I have extensive experience with aftermarket parts, the different brands and their comparative differences, and their benefits. I also have experience installing, repairing, and maintaining the physical components of the car which must be in sound condition for any tuning to be 100% effective. When it comes to engine internals I have experience with both OEM and aftermarket builds and can advise you in that arena as well.
