i got my car tuned at adrenaline, and they are a great place and all, but they took 3 weeks, and only pushed out 200whp@7psi. The vtec was set at 3800rpms which is insanely terrible for gas mileage. It was hondata tuned, and it was blamed on due to the small downpipe, which i agree with, but 3 weeks. So i messed around some more, and pulled out 280whp. Look around and see if certain tuners are traveling around. My friend got tuned by superdave, and his wait was well worth it.

Why would you leave your car there for 3 weeks?

I left it there on a friday since i was going to be out of town, and i was about a week, and then everytime i called, there was another excuse, and this and that. But since, i have kept the same turbo, but as mentioned above, the downpipe was like 1.80 inches custom, dumbass shit a friend did a while ago which caused an assload of backpressure. Since, i made my own. 2 90 degree piping, and a straight plus a welder and heat wrap.

Your sentences are hard to follow. A downpipe with heat wrap putting out 80whp seems to be a little hard to believe.

They tuned mine to wear it kicks in at 3500rpms. Talk about shitty gas mileage. But I did notice a huge difference from before and after they tuned it and I was very pleased. I'm sure yours redlines higher though. With my K series, it peaks at 6800. FTL

it might have been unclear. It was dynoed at 103.4 degrees or something and since then, my downpipe went to 2.5-2.6 inches which made a gigantic difference, and i have a test pipe now, and we removed the ac condensor. The clutch was slipping alittle also and was replaced with a stage 3 proclutch. There you have it.

Don't get your car tuned at Adrenaline. It is a nice shop, but I would be leary of their tunen ability. I wouldn't make such a statement with out some examples.

1st example......

A freind just got a base map put on his built LS/Vtec teg. It was a base so he wasn't expecting alot of power, but why would the VTEC turn on at 2200 rpms? I never heard of breaking in a motor like that? And when the car was brought in to be tuned, the profec B worked but now it doesn't work? and he needs a manual boost controller?

2nd example.....

Another freind just purchased a turbo H22 accord coupe w/ AEM EMS tuned by Adrenaline. The guy he bought it from didn't know much, but you would think a reputable tuner would tell him that with the EMS he wouldn't need a missing link and a FMU, nope they tuned the EMS with said items installed.

They are a nice shop with a freindly staff, I just wouldn't let them tune my car. HP pulls on the Dyno, sure.... Just no tuning. Seems the drift bug may have bitten them to hard.

I'm from the St. Charles area, but I visit Hazelwood quite often for friends and sometimes meet up at Elm street and 370 on sat nights. But recently I've been going to SoCo.

The hatch is down right now for changes. But it will be back on the road shortly. Got a pic of your car, maybe I have seen you...

and as fo Adrenaline...Great guys and nice to me, they did a great job on my swap. Tuning, not so sure about that. I keep hearing everyone say that the tuner there sets the Vtec to come in at 3,800 rpms. Not what i would do for tuning. I don't care about big numbers, I'd rather have a better running and reliable motor than have numbers.

350hp? hopefully for the end result. The pistons and rods really won't add any power, but the power fc might. The power Fc is pretty expensive though, believe me I know. You'll pay $1,000+ possibly for the ECU and for the Commander. Maybe go for K series Pro?

Touche, for some reason I was thinking N/A. I was incorrect SiR. Good luck with the boosting and keep us posted as usual with results and installs!

Calm down Dale!

We just need a reputable shop and tuner in the area and not have to go to a different state just for a good tune.
