    *RESOLVED* DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR TO AJE HOTI (EMP TUNING) if you value your money or vehicle. He is a scam artist and a very smooth talker. EMP Tuning is not licensed or insured and the work is done in his driveway. If something happens to your vehicle or you pay for work and he does not complete it he will block you on social media and you will take a loss as I did. I paid Aje $600 for a devils own direct port methanol injection kit $300 for installation, $150 for a thermostat installation he was not able to complete due to lack of tools. He also had a brand new forge diverter valve of mine that cost $210 he was going to sell for me due to the fact he had me purchase a part that did not work with my turbo. Our friendship diminished and I asked for my belongings and money he owes me so we can go our separate ways. Aje told me he did not owe me anything and blocked my phone number and on social media. I received only the meth kit and my vag-com i had lent him via a 3rd party and it was opened, with bags torn open inside and missing over 100 dollars of parts to make it port injection. He has made no attempt to pay me the money I had given him for work in good faith and claims everything was complete in the methanol kit. This is a person i have went above and beyond for. I have given free mounting and balancing, tires at cost, free alignment, i even let him use my $899 professional vag-com kit for 10 months when he wanted to start tuning cars and i never even asked for a dime. If he would do this to me for all i've done to him imagine what he could do to you. I had recently seen a post on his EMP TUNING facebook page about a port injection meth kit he installed on a similar engine. Now i know why my meth kit was incomplete and why he would not meet me in person to give it to me. He took my parts and sold them to another person. I waited a couple weeks and sent him a text via texting app to see when he could start paying me back and did not even receive a reply. Please take your vehicle to a licensed, insured and trusted shop not an unlicensed backyard mechanic that does mediocre work at best. I would hate to see anyone in the situation i am in.

    The other day BoostAddict posted an article regarding Weistec's legal action against Dime Research and Development or Dime Consulting. Clearly those involved with Dime realize the walls are closing in so what are they doing in the meantime while the courts play this out? BS'ing people on forums and trying to do as much damage to Weistec as possible. It's a very simple recipe and it happens more often than you think. Simply offer someone some parts for a discount or free in exchange for posting a thread including a positive review while bashing a competitor. It happens all the time. MHP was the best at this. The owner even asked me directly to create fake accounts for him on other forums so he could do this. When a ship is sinking which in this case it is a company it takes cash to stay afloat or keep the doors open. When HPF (Horsepower Freaks) was in a similar position the owner would go on the forums and post videos of how his shop was filled with cars hoping to instill confidence in potential customers. It's easy to see through the BS though if you have enough experience or have been on the forums long enough. In this instance, it was way too easy: This 'Guilty' fellow posts a graph claiming it is a C63 M177, bashes Weistec, and says how great his tune is. That tune curve looks pretty familiar though, doesn't it? Very similar but not the exact figures yet clearly an AMG GT M178 graph and not a C63 M177 graph. If it was the exact same graph as the graph Weistec advertises with that would be too obvious even to your typical forum moron. Maybe they took another run file or just changed a correction factor? If we had the actual bevvy of dyno run files from the Dynojet software testing we could prove this. Oh, it just so happens we do: That would be runfile 88 from Weistec's ECU tuning. Exact same baseline and the exact same after the tune numbers. Because it's the exact same files. This poor schmuck is either a Dime schill or he believes that is the runfile for his car. Either way the guys reading on forums just assume this is the truth and that they can get the same results as Weistec for less money. If the software is stolen and no development work took place, yep, it's possible to offer a lower price. For those who would like to verify for themselves, here are the Dynojet run files: RunFile_002_stock.drf RunFile_088_Testing.drf As stated, it's a simple recipe. Post a graph, have a few fake accounts chime in where the administration doesn't care because it's too big to care, and you get the desired result which is herding the sheep in the direction you want them to go. Now tell me, who would you trust? The company facing litigation from multiple parties with people involved accused of stealing millions and potentially funneling money overseas that advertises software they did not even develop or BenzBoost? Hmm: It seems not everyone is so easily swayed:

    Many of you have on various platforms noticed the Cobb Accesstuner Race (ATR) Software no longer is available for download. Cobb is busy updating the ATR software and it was supposed to be out in June but it looks like we will be seeing it at some point this quarter. What is the difference? One major difference is that while the software is still free to download users will be required to attend an online course they they pay for. They will then have to pass a third party evaluation to use the software. Why is this? We do not know for sure but it may have something to do with preventing people thinking they know how to tune from grenading their engines as well as emissions training. We will have to wait and find out what the course entails. More details from Cobb below. We recognize that the Accesstuner Race software has been a big part of what makes COBB Accessport tuning solutions so powerful and user friendly for the communities we support. Many have come to rely on this software to help them make small changes to COBB Off The Shelf map files to customize features like launch control, flat foot shifting, or to adjust MAF scaling. Our goal is to continue to offer this type of customization software to our end user community. After evaluating key industry trends and changes in the regulatory environment, we identified the need to update the software and provide expanded training for its use. So, in May of this year we removed the ability to download new copies of Accesstuner Race from our web site, indicated that changes were being made to the software, and it would be available again by the end of June. With that time now here, we want to provide you with an update on the progress of this project. An updated version of Accesstuner will return in the near future, be fully featured, and will continue to be offered for free to COBB Accessport customers. Because this is a powerful piece of software, we have decided that in order to fulfill our mission of delivering responsible and safe tuning solutions, we will require that end users attend a paid online training course and pass an evaluation through a third party educator in order to have access to download this free software (Accesstuner). As you can imagine, implementing these changes and setting up the online training and evaluation process takes time and involves lots of different groups both internal and external to COBB. We’ve been hard at work updating this software while creating a curriculum and bank of test questions to ensure that those who complete the course are able to safely and responsibly utilize this software. Because of the size and complexity of this project, it is taking us longer than we originally projected to complete the launch of Accesstuner and our training program. Our current timeline is for the Accesstuner software and training program to be ready for launch in the third quarter of this year. Once we are a little closer to an actual release date we will provide you with more information about the training process required for an end-user to acquire and use our Accesstuner software. We apologize that this launch has taken longer than we expected, but please know that we are very focused on getting this project completed. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. We appreciate your support and your patience while we make these changes.
