Who else love's their Tuning Alliance tune ?

Been a while since I've updated on my wagon. The vf52 has 92,000 miles. I had the dp and up off the week, checked the turbo, zero shaft play. The car was down for a week and a half or so for various reasons, exhaust leak at up pipe, PS pump leak, brake line leak (Subaru replaced all the brake lines and left rear caliper, at no charge), had a bad wheel speed sensor.

 

While the wagon was down I drove my Spec B. It's also tuned by Mike, but the difference the vf52 makes in the wagon is amazing. It's so responsive and keeps making HP up top where the vf46 falls off.

 

Last Saturday while the wheel speed sensor was being a PITA. I put the wheel back on a said let someone else fix it. While at diner that night my GF ask me, if I was fed up with the car? I asked, do you think I's ready to sell it ? I said no way, life is great when I put my foot into the throttle. There's nothing out there with this much bang for the buck.

 

Thanks again to Mike for giving me such a fun car to drive.

 

btw, does your car see redline (or close to it) at least once a day?

I won't say once a day. But yea, I have no problem going there when I "feel the need, the need for speed". :)

 

On the back roads out through the farm fields of a town called Ellington, there are some fun curves and great places to run the car through the gears coming off a stop sign.

 

 

My DD to work is 28 miles in CC at about 62mph...going home is different...Soon the car will be going back to VT each weekend as well as the DD to work, ski season is almost here.

I see. Mine is almost once a day mostly in 2nd gear though, not in 3rd. But I do a lot of downshifting to 4th on the freeway when I need to pass someone; I wait at ~3k rpm (where the juice is :wub:), and then push her pretty hard when passing. But I usually won't go pass 5k in 4th. You'll be reaching pretty high speed... Edited by xt2005bonbon

I agree with the 4th gear at 5000rpm the car is moving pretty quickly.

 

I really love the 2nd and 3rd pull at WOT when passing cars on the back roads or just using 3/4 throttle when taking off from a stop sign for the first 3 gears.

With the "removal" of easily accessible Cobb AT Race, we've listened, and we've came up with a solution for logging wideband's via Cobb AP!

Well , I was back at it again this weekend! Headed up to Mike's for a Road tune and switching over to a full SD tune. Like I previously mentioned in the WDYD2Y4thGT thread, this is likely the stopping point power-wise with my Stock SB.

It's in good health and good hands with 26k miles on it since it was dropped into the car new.

 

This car was pretty damn quick before yesterday ( 320/320). By Mike's calculations we added another 20 to those numbers now. Overly impressed with the performance of the 71hta. This little turbo packs a punch!!!

 

Overall driveability is silky smooth, Mike never ceases to amaze me ,great guy and a great tuner!!!

 

Don't be the Guy that settles for a intake and a OTS tune. Give Mike a call you most certainly won't be disappointed!!!!

Mike, I wanna come see you for street tune soon. The E-tune has been good to me. Just wanna dial it in.

 

Shell, I found that the best way to get a hold of Mike is through messenger on Facebook....That is of course if you are on Facebook.

Waiting to snag my buddies lift to install up-pipe and then getting in contact with TA!!

 

Figured out a small vacuum leak, cleaned MAF and installed OEM panel air intake, and IAM is at 1.000 90% of the time!

 

cant wait to feel a difference with a tune

And if you aren't?

 

Haven't had good luck with email, and no one answers the number on the site, sales or otherwise.
