Professional Ford EFI Tuners on this forum

Post by EFI-Unlimited » Tue Aug 24, 2010 12:31 pm

How many of us are legitimately professionals at this? Specifically, who on here makes all or most or their living, personally tuning and calibrating Ford vehicles. I suspect quite a few do.

Professional tuner, but not Fords. Currently doing aircraft engines, worked for Chrysler in the past. Most of the Ford tuning I do is my own cars

I am not but hope to be someday.

For those of you not already in the EEC Tuning Facebook group please join.
EEC Tuning Group:
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=gro ... 6440591052

I have also started an initiative for all automotive technicians to share common problems and experiences with vehicles they encounter. Kind of like 'identifix', hopefully just as helpful. If I can get enough members in the group I will put up a website to keep everything organized and data-based for everyone to access and use. I don't know about you all but I will take any time shaved off of diagnostics that I can get.

Auto Technicians Group:

Please take these groups into consideration and help us out.
After all the more knowledge that we have the easier our jobs will be.

Have a shop and build custom cars.
We have two dynos but they are not use very often most for my own playing.
EFI is for me a thing that I want to now for my self.In Germany we have not many new Ford and tuning is not very popular about the reugulations.

Hello all, I figured that this would have a good place for a newbie post.

I stumbled onto the site while searching info out for the speed density ford stuff, but yes this is a full time gig for me and has been since around 2001, the leading edge of the ford tuning bubble. I tune with both B.E. and SCT...
I have a full 3000 sq.ft shop well equipped with 2 lifts and an in-ground Mustang Dyno. I also do installs of all aftermarket components and custom fabrication as well. Turbos are my weak spot, but show a little love to the supercharger stuff too. I am a dealer for Vortech/Paxton, Edelbrock, Holley, Precision turbo and many other lines as well.
We offer a turbo system for the s197 Mustangs v8 and V6 2005-2010, and have one in the works for the 11 and up v8 cars too.

Hope to be able to lend a hand to the site, and gain a bit of knowledge in the process.
