Hi guys,


I need an ECU tune soon and the only guy in this business I trust is charliex because he is absolutely honest, knows his sh^t, and ensures reliability.



My understanding is that Charlie will travel to do custom tuning but obviously his expenses must be paid for.


I was wondering if anyone was interested in splitting the travel costs to have Charlie come here and custom tune their ECU on a dyno.



The benefits of this:

1. You can make optimum power for YOUR car rather than just a generic, one-size-fits-all tune

2. You know you're dealing with an honest, stand-up person who is extremely knowledgeable and experienced

3. You can trust that your tune will be reliable and Charliex will stand behind his products.




If you have any mods such as exhaust or intake, this is a must. Even a stock car can benefit from this.


Even if you have an S/C or aftermarket tune, Charliex can tune anything given the time.




So would anyone be interested? This is a great opportunity :)

So far it works fine on the BWR cars since they're basically the same. For the 06's i haven't released the latest DBW code which prevents some cars from getting that throttle error code, that should be ready next week.

Charlie, maybe you could chime in and let us know what we might expect. For instance, PES BWR tune from 6/1/08. What might I expect from the car when it's done? Smoother, faster, etc? The car runs very well now, I can't imagine it being any better, but hell there's always something to improve.

Car is BWR SC, Larini exhaust, desnorkeled with green filter.

since we use a larger fuel/spark map it should provide better driveability and you'll get the adaptive switch so it helps with gas mileage. should be a smoother curve too..

as for power increases well it'll be at least the as the ronins anything gained from there will be down to different engine bits, pully sizes, colder air etc.

Good initiative BM! Too early for me unfortunately :( :(
I hope to buy the new mystery CharlieX SC/IC kit later this summer so it doesn't make sense for me to spend tuning money on my current NA setup. If it Charlie will be around later this year, I'm in though!
