I wrote Ben yesterday around 2 Central asking to get an Etune for our Lightly bolted on GTR using cobb. He quickly responded in less then an hour answering a few questions that I had on how it worked.

Under an hour after I sent him the payment he had already sent a base map with easy to read instructions on what he wanted logged and after a few revisions and less then a day we went from a cobb OTS tune to a fully functional and very polished Ben tune. So anyone looking to get a Etune, I highly recommend Ben, even as small of a build as we were he responded quickly and kindly.

Thanks again Ben!

I go weeks in between driving my GTR.

Every time I send Ben a log he responds almost immediately.

It's amazing and much appreciated.

No clue when he sleeps.

Update on tuning with Ben. A few weeks ago we noticed that the boost gauge was flashing indicating knock, possibly from bad gas or change in temp, whatever it was. Sent Ben a Log of the map we had been on and within the day he had sent back a new map to test and try to and pull timing to see if we could put a cap on the knock. Most tuners would have charged again or told us to only run race gas, but Ben stood by us and Helped.
Couldn't ask for anything more

Ben is an amazing individual, he always gets back to you quick, he is very helpful and most importantly he does make you feel like you are the only one he is tuning when he has so much business. Customer service and experience is not lost with Ben. I would recommend him a 1,000 times again.

Some say his IQ is so high Mensa needed to develop a special test for him.

Others say he once simultaneously tuned 4 Gtrs while solving 5 rubics cubes at same time, all the while standing on one foot with one hand tied behind his back.

In Japan it was rumoured that he developed all the code for the VR38's ECU and Nissan begged him to use it in the GTR.

The truth is....and I hope he will forgive me for revealing his secret.... that he is not a man at all but a robot from the future sent to save humanity, until then he kills time by tuning GTRs

Ben is not human. As most people run off sleep he runs off tunes.
