Hey,
I was wondering if anyone had some recommendations for shops other than english racing.

i recently bought AEM uego wideband/oil/boost gauge and been putting it off.

i got two kids and id rather play with them rather then spending my time outside. I have tried a couple tuner shops but they had turned me down because they dont specialize in our cars.

if push comes to shove, i will try and tackle this. Is there a DIY Thread made for this?

thanks

Here is a link for the boost gauge install and another for oil pressure. You may find some more sources for DIY if you continue searching. Be careful with the oil pressure gauge install. I believe the fitting you would need to go into the block is BSP and not NPT. I have seen a few threads where the housing cracked because they overtightened a NPT fitting and it's not a replaceable part. Its part of the block. You could also use a oil filter sandwich adapter instead.

It doesn’t matter, If you’re closer to English go there.
AW is top notch for all other work if you’re closer to them... they will take care of you.
English used to do dyno days at AW for people that aren’t able to make the drive to Camas.

thanks for that input. I got my appointment set up. I got that cast exhaust manifold from maperformance. Maybe ill just have them install it and tune it after everything is put on.

i second the recommendation for AW, they are great

they also have a dyno, you can book an e tuning session with someone if you dont feel like going to English. i know English is pretty backed up as well due to the Rona

I e tuned with Chet Rickerman, but did it via email and i did my pulls on the road. i believe he'll also dyno e tune if you prefer

Yes it can take a while to install the gauges. I did my own boost, oil pressure and wideband gauges. The worst part is routing the wires and removing certain panels in your car for the gauge pod install. If you take your time you can set up the gauges where you want them and save some money in the process. I have a garage so I was able to do this over a few days whenever I had some free time.
