Enzo Performance is now Enzo Racing - A look at one of the tri-state area's top European/German tuning, dyno, and performance shops
Many of you know of Enzo Performance which was a vendor on this automotive network. The shop is now Enzo Racing: http://tunedbyenzo.com. Enzo Iadevaia who is the founder and owner contacted BoostAddict to clear the air on questions regarding the shop and direction.
First, let's start with where they are located.
Address:1139 Station Rd. Unit 1, Medford NY 11763
Now what services do they offer? Well, it's basically a one stop shop.
- Custom fabrication
- Suspension work
- Track setups
- Custom builds
- Certified technicians, fabricators and specialists.
- Latest diagnostic tools and software.
- In house milling and turning capability.
- Dedicated lounge area with WiFi, coffee and entertainment.
- Mainline 1800AWD Dyno, room exhaust and controlled environment.
- Full race prep and fabrication —tune, chassis, motor and electronics.
- Ample and bright 7,500ft2 facility with clean floors, tools and lifts.
- Smoke free shop and white-glove care
- All vehicles are protected during work and always stored overnight.
Here are a few examples of Enzo Racing's work from mild to wild:
F80 M3 and F82 M4 S55 ECU tune:
Porsche 997 1200R:
When Enzo Racing set out to create a line of upgrade packages for the Porsche 911 Turbo, the 1200R+ came to life. Actually rated at 1250hp, the 1200R+ dominates the competition, and does so with the stock drivetrain —aside from an upgraded clutch. Twin GT35 Garrett turbos power this monster into time-bending speeds all while maintaining every comfort feature found in the stock 997 Turbo. That’s a full factory interior, A/C, Audio system, Nav and powered windows and seats. Even the original 6-speed manual transmission remains untouched. The 1200R+ is a true under-the-radar powerhouse, if it weren’t for the 1200R+ badges most people would be unaware of its power, until the menacing growl fills the air upon start-up that is.
- Custom EnzoTuned™ ECU Calibration
- Twin GT35 Garrett turbochargers (Tial wastegates and blow-off valves)
- Enzo Racing X-Pipe Exhaust system (Lightweight aircraft-quality metals, custom stainless steel Enzo Racing tips)
- Enzo Racing intercooler system (Custom carbon air duct)
- EnzoTuned™ Engine Management (Syvecs S12 Control Unit on 1200R+)
- Enzo Racing fuel system
- Enzo Racing Forged Engine
- Billet Intake Manifold
- Race Cylinder Heads
- PPG Billet 1-6 Gearset and Drop Gears
- Heavy Duty Axle Upgrade
- Exclusive, high-quality Twin Turbo R+ exterior badging
- Individualized and serialized temper-proof authenticity label
- Optional Toyo Proxes R888 tires
- Various options for component finishes available
- Individualized and serialized temper-proof authenticity label with actual dyno results
- 1 year/12,000 mile Limited Warranty and Support
As you can see, you can go from an ECU tune to a full motor build with turbos if you like. It's really up to you, your goals, and your checkbook.
Now as far as the name change, let's cover what took place and what one can expect going forward.

Peculiar. I had a bad experience with this shop just this past summer. I sent my car is for a brake change and within 24 hours after the car was returned, it lost all pedal pressure and stopping ability. Instead of offering to help get the vehicle back to them, they expected me to drive the vehicle back (~35 mins and on the highway), at which point they would assess the situation. Instead of risking my life, I took it somewhere else and had another shop fix the job, which was related to the service they were paid for. Instead of doing the right thing and reimbursing me for the additional repairs, I was insulted for not bringing the car back to them and the owner was "never available" to speak with me.
I hope this is related to the bad business relationship and has been remedied with Enzo Racing.

The remedy is moving forward I'm the only one dealing with customers now so there won't be anymore insults or owner never available nonsense.
If I can help you in anyway with any future repairs/ maintenance / or mods please let me know.

Appreciated. Ironically, I met you at one of the SlipStream events (think it was one of the first times the 1200+ 997 was out & about) and quickly realized that you were a standup and genuine person, which I why I sought out your shop instead of another independent shop or manufacturer service department. However, my confidence has been shaken following this situation, especially given that this was problem with a primary safety feature of the car (and arguable a routine service job), in contrast to a turbo setup not hitting the boost target. Luckily, no one was hurt and problem was remedied.
Generally speaking, it's very unfortunate that an independent shops with a reputable name in the aftermarket community can be easily ruined by rogue employees or management disputes. Undercover went through something recently and it led to complete changes in ownership and affiliated employees. In addition, this is a story we've all heard several times over. A customer trusts shop "X" with their car and pays a large sums of money with the expectation that the work will be completed as advertised, only to be taken advantage of and left with a car that's now in worse condition than when it was dropped off.
@EnzoRacing -- I will make sure to reach out when the time comes, or perhaps we'll meet up at another SlipStream event in the near future.COBB AP ProTune by Bren of ///Bren Tuning
