Interesting, thanks for explanation as I was honestly curious on that.

Just expressing my opinion on fees, that's all. They always seem to show up without prior notice. Not sure you should be posting the ops signature.

Deleted the picture as the point was made. As for fees showing up with no notice, we have a large sign in the office that explains the credit card processing fee. Many customers will choose to pay by cash or a debit card to avoid the fee after seeing either the sign or the invoice. Lots of people realize though, that with the 3.5% card fee and only 3.5% tax it's as if you are only paying the standard 7% sales tax in NJ.

I will be paying Tune Time with dollar bills, I was going to the bar with the dollars but I decided I will get something else with my cash.

I'm confused, there are 2 Tune Time Performances in New Jersey? One is owned by a guy named Matt and it's in Toms River, correct? Or is this the same place and they just moved?

First off I want to apologize if the staff came off as being in a bad mood and you did not feel welcome. I don't understand how that happened or why, I'm sure many of our customers and even non customers can tell you how we are nothing like that.

Now, you were unhappy with the dyno numbers your car put down and decided to go somewhere else and have it re tuned, I understand no hard feelings. A dyno is a tool, nothing more and nothing less. Unfortunately ours is a stingy tool, the numbers your car put down are in line with what it should. Why another similarly modded car made a bit more on our dyno could be due to any number of things, weather plays a part in things as well. I'd be glad to strap your car down to our dyno and see what it puts down on your current tune. Also if you had a concern about the way the car felt all you had to do was notify us and we would adjust it at no charge at all until you were satisfied.

The issue I have, is you saying we screwed you over.

Everything was written down and documented, you were shown the bill before any work was performed. The dyno tune cost is 550, we let you know there was an hour diagnostic/shakedown charge as well, since there were mods installed that we did not install. We always go over a car and smoke test it for leaks prior to letting it go on the dyno to avoid any issues, not to mention strapping and then unstrapping a car is a giant waste.

My tech came back and notified us that you had a stock thermostat as well as non optimal spark plugs installed, he recommended we install a 160 stat and a set of NGK TR-55's.

An estimate was written up and shown to you prior to anything happening, you signed the work order and let us know to proceed.

My techs work ticket...




The signed work order by you to proceed..


(Pic deleted for privacy)



Again I apologize for you feeling unwelcome and that the wait was longer than expected, I honestly do not remember what was going on in the shop that day to cause the delay. I hope you understand where I'm coming from, I understand you were not happy with the power it made but we have never and will never screw anybody over on a bill. If there is anything else I can do for you give me a call anytime at the shop.

Hope you can make it out to our Open House & Car Show in April, your car is definitely a good looking ride and I hope to see it there.

Joe

Just to be fair spark plugs are a pain in the ass to install depending how much stuff you have in the way of spark plugs. I have multiple hoses in the way that left little to no room on drivers side. Took me 2.5hrs to install, then again it was my first time installing on my car.

Figuring this was a good place to post this since it was done at the Tune Time show today.

I'm just disappointed at the results of my dyno from todays event.

Here are my stock numbers from ECS, 336 HP and 372 TQ:




According to Tune Time's dyno, I gained 66 HP and LOST 7 TQ, for 402 HP and 365 HP:



The ECS dyno was stock with a K&N cold air intake. The Tune Time dyno was cam, headers, high flow cats, cat back exhaust, stall convertor and tune.

Maybe someone can shed some light????

Two different dyno's. Really can't compare the 2. I think Tune time is a Mustang and ECS is a Dynapac.

Blue when you pulled into the lot that thing sounded pretty damn strong. You have a 66 horsepower total gain that is about where I am at.
I started with the LS3 with a CAI, Long tubes and 3 inch catless system, tune and hit 430 hp at last Aprils Open House. Tune Time installed a Comp Cam setup with underdrive pulley,160 thermostat and a new tune and now I am the 490 range.

Hope you had a good time at the show.

yes ecs is a dynapac, I hit 390 on a first pull yesterday and 399 on the second pull. Mustang dyno at tune time. ECS I hit 426 first time and 429 second time. So its in line for the differences between the two, usually you can have a 10-15% difference lower on a mustand dyno I always heard

just thought id throw in my 2 cents.. i had my car done at tune time performance and got American racing headers and SLP loud mouth mufflers also a air intake tune and 160 stat... well my expericence with joe from tune time and every employee was.. nothing short of EXTREMLY PROFESSIONAL everything they did was awesome the dyno they use is a mustang dyno.. which is the most accurate dyno but unfortunately the numbers u are used too are done on a DYNOJET so the mustang dyno will usually read slightly lower numbers.. but there is a formula too figure out correct HP gains

Thanks joe@tunetimeperformance for a awesome experience look foward to doing more business with you
