Just wanted too make a quick write up about my recent experience with Jason. I know there are many people who has had great performance out of his tunes, this is a proven fact around this community and he is one of the go to staple guys on platform. I actually had the chance to have him preform some work on my car. I had the Turbosmart 7 psi wastegate and his custom e85 content gauge installed along with tuning service for e40/93.
The work was top class everything fits and works perfect. The car drives better then it ever did !!!!
But the one thing I give him the most respect for is his ability too understand how too guide a customer to build this platform.
He really spent some extra time with me explaining the mods on his fiesta, and the direction that will give me the most value for my money spent.
I would have no problems going forward to use him again for installation/ tuning services....This guy knows what he's doing and if anyone is local enough to him its the right place too be.

Well he's wayyyyyyy out in long island
I live in the city and it took me about 1hr 20mins with no traffic
But to be honest I don't think you will find shops that will ever really specialize in this platform, when you think about it, its the only car with this setup that will be modded for performance gains, so its like a one off car...... Am almost certain it wont turn into the EVO or STI. So to have a one stop do it all kinda guy out there is pretty cool

I also have a custom 91 tune with the wastegate and the e-40 tune. Night and day difference on how the car makes power and also makes it more linear. I should've done a write up but the install is not that bad.

Take off the winshield wipers, headlights then cowl then crossover pipe. Then the hardest part is mangling and getting the damn heat shield out. After that it's just a couple of bolts and a boost line holding the wastegate in then just follow adam at tune+ video on how to adjust preload and put it all back together. All in all I've done 3 and can probably get it done in 2-3 hrs if the heat shield works with me. That is also with me taking my time and using hand tools. Love dizzy and when I go big turbo I will be using him as the tuner

I haven't looked back there in a little bit but is it easier to install the WGA from the top or under the car? I already have the heat shield removed so the difficult part is done lol

FULLY AGREED!!

I am at a minimum 3 times that travel time (with NO traffic, but when is there EVER no traffic headed out that way, as I've been on the L.I.E. at three in the morning and it has stood still, without an accident!!) from Dizzy, and even for a factory snail, I am willing to make that trip for an in person tune. [wink] [thumb]

Even more so now that it seems that Mitch L., formerly of CP-E, is NOT doing tunes, or any work anymore, in relatively 'nearby' (in travel time) Baltimore.

From what I seen at his shop its a one man, one car type of operation. Its not like taking you car to big name operation (not that anything is wrong with that)
So its gonna be constant high quality, low volume output worth every penny.

Yes the power is very liner...almost feels like its more usable since you get better boost at higher Revs, I find it more impactful in 3rd & 4th gear on the highway.
