Dave Katz tuned my eclipse on an EVO 8 ecu.

Tom @ tcompusa did my second tune (remote tuning)

Both were good tunes. Tom was a bit more familiar with tephra vs Dave but Dave is local.

Looking for problems? You're the one starting a thread about tuning a car you haven't even bought yet. Well I certainly hope that when you buy that Evo with 154,000 hard miles on the clock (and I'm sure you will) you'll post pictures up here and tell us which shop you decided to have it tuned at. Maybe a few pictures of an Evo would make this thread at least partially worthwhile.

Seriously though man, I don't care what the owner says, there's no such thing as a babied 154,000 mile modded Evo. The type of people who buy Evos don't do it to drive slowly. They do it because they've got Ken Block syndrome and want to hoon around in something that's both fast as a raped ape and relatively practical. There's nothing wrong with that, but it makes them not the best cars to buy secondhand and certainly not with that many miles on it.

Maybe instead of "who tunes evos" this thread should be "what car should I buy?". Judging by the two cars that you've inquired about I'm guessing you've got a budget of about $15,000. It also seems like you may need or prefer something AWD and quick. Have you considered purchasing a Volvo S60R? They're available at the same price with about a third the mileage and nothing makes panties hit the sidewalk with a wet audible slap like a Volvo. Seriously man, opt for the leather because the jank you'll be wiping off the passengers seat does not come out of cloth ya'dig?

GotMoney listen to what he's said. If it's got 150k on it, 140k of that is having it absolutely balls to the wall fast as fuck.
I've owned two, I ain't about to kid no one I beat the the fucking shit out of that car. Everyone of my EVO buddies did the same.
If you "got money" to repair it all the time have a blast.

I'm pretty sure his shop is in Stafford Va off Potomac creek drive (by The Range in Stafford).

Oh yesa massa I zuck yo dick. For real though I'll be good. I tried to make up for it with some genuine advice which I really hope the OP listens to for his own sake. Nothing like blowing 14 grand on a car you end up hating.
