I don't think the purpose of the video was to show his tuning capabilities though? More about how stupid customers are in the industry in general...right?

been lurking on this forum for a while and finally came across this new shop located in Copiague in NY! Tuning Works Inc. Very clean and friendly place. AWESOME waiting room! I was playing ps3 and watching netflix while my stuff was getting installed

I brought my car in for an injen intake, invidia TBE, and a cobb short shifter to get installed and they let me snap some pics of what was goin on!

good pricing and great work

I highly recommend them for any work that you might need

Shops & Vendors; Choosing one, working with one, and dealing with issues.

Everyone needs to remember that patience is key to success or at lest not spitting rods out of the oil pan if the money isn't there to do it right don't do it Seems like lots of problems stem from cheep parts or a cheep tune

Funny you posted this Justin... I just went there today and got my springs installed (Only about 10mins from my house).

The shop is nice and you can clearly see they don't scrimp on buying equipment, they have some very nice gear and the shop was filled with some very nice cars... although mostly Nissan.

They gave me a great price on the spring install compared to others and I'd use them again for mechanic part installs... but not so much tuning Evo's as VQ's are Vinny's specialty.. not Evo's.

I have very good relations with Tach Motorworks in Oceanside, Long Island. They are thorough and responsive, not to mention nice as hell. If you from the boroughs or LI, definitely consider making the trip. Good peoples.

Shops & Vendors; Choosing one, working with one, and dealing with issues.

Hey Folks,
To add to the thread, I certainly agree with Hollywood's proposition , expectations, and a natural route in choosing a shop/tuner/vendor etc. In fact a very general rule of thumb is that two parties have to mitigate any differences in order to move forward together. Having said that Sun doesn't shine everyday.

Anyhow my experiences so far :

I was extremely new to JDM EVO x scene and I had an etune from Hollywood in 2013 and I was AMAZED to see this mans promptness and his care. The man called me immediately whenever I gave him a SOS. Although, I was not a fan of doing pulls or the whole logging process considering where I live and the nuisance associated but I totally enjoyed Hollywood's backing up strategy. You are good man.

:Moderate work done and a Pro Tune:

Recently I decided and pulled the trigger to drop my car to ESPEC Industries (NY) for a minor/moderate build and a tune.

The experience was great. The budget was set and locked, work was started immediately and the car was ready to go on time. The man Erkel was phenomenal, extremely prompt and updated me at all levels.

The car feels awesome.

The key for me is communication and that too effective communication. It sets a bench mark to further cement the ties and initiate a collaboration.

Thanks to Hollywood and Mr. Erkel So far so good.

Cheers.
