Thumbs up Slowhawk Performance

Brought my car originally for a retune and alky control kit. I mentioned to Don that my rear does make some noises and if he has any idea what it is please let me know. It took a couple of weeks (waiting for delivery of parts) but I'm am extremely pleased with the end result. I had a 3.5 hr drive back home where I was able to bring it up to 140. 3 years of vibrations and noises were all gone for the rear. It wasn't normal NVH after-all and needed adjustments plus new parts to get it right.

He also did a phenomenal job on the tuning. The shift transitions whether upshift or down are smooth now, no more jerky feeling. He actually stated the prior tune can hurt the trans on the downshift. One of my concerns was knock and he also addressed that. He removed timing across the board even though we added a Meth kit. He mentioned his surprise in finding my AFR was dead on after meth install. Usually it's a point richer which leads me to believe it was a point too lean prior.

I'd also like to add those $2.50 NGK's work pretty damn good. No idle issues or any drivabilty concerns. Maybe that has a lot to do with me having a BIG BOY TUNER NOW.

I say to anyone if your on the East Coast it be foolish to not send him an email. I say this because he actually works on the cars and doesn't sit near the phone all day.

Thanks Don.

"SlowHawk Performance"....a man who knows his business without a doubt. I've read many of his posts on this forum and his posts on another forum. Glad to see him back as a Vendor again. He gives great advice and feedback.

Don is the man. Not at all egotistical as was suggested to me. Most down to earth shop I've had the pleasure of doing business with. No God complex. He let's his work speak for him.

That's the way it should be.
