Techsalvager had his Dad front like he owned the car?

Actually no, ran smoother actually. I still have yet to get the numbers from the shop as soon as I do ill post them. Honestly the car ran really well no shuttering, no sputtering, seemed to pull very consistently and evenly. Built boost just find and quickly. Honestly to the semi-untrained (me and all my friends) eye it seemed/felt great! I had someone from CNC drive it as well who is very competent in engine builds drive it and he loved it with no complaints then gave a ride to my friend with a HPF E46 M3 who built it himself making about 575whp and he loved it too and said it was one of the better feeling cars he's been in..... Honestly nothing on the outside suggested a bad tune thus I didn't look into it any further. But then again none of us looked at the numbers only the shops did.

So this tune ran better than the one that the PO had loaded when you bought it.


I'm not sure who fucked you harder, the shop, or PO.

Nope, Just looked him up. My car was red before I dipped it plus two tone interior. His is white and has all black interior. Plus this guy lived in Cali and Techsalvager lived in GA. I would be even more pissed if that was the case though!

well the shop isn't open today, ill post up actual tune tomorrow. **** this ****.... At least new engines are cheap. Ill probably just go that route, do more research, then actually get it tuned right this time. PLUS ask for my money back from the shop and possibly more since they did help blow up my motor.

should get a replacement engine, swap it for daily use with a better tune and build your current one the right way, nice and slow

Sucks about your car, but you live and learn and life goes on.

Look on the bright side, you have a good excuse to rebuild your motor.

Honestly, I think that a shop that lets you drive away with 13:1AFR @ 20PSI owes you an engine.
