i only have about 14 years and 150 thousand miles of daily driving and racing between both my cobras that were tuned by ret.
guess i'll need a new engine soon. lol
Well when was your car tuned last? This reputation is recent, I’d say 2016 is around where it started.
Buddy had his 03 with a Whipple 2.3 tuned back in 2015 or 16. And just recently got another tune for his new 2.9.
Some change for the better or worse?
Worse; there was a group on facebook that was suing the shop circa 2018/9. Doubt you can even sue a shop like that but it was many and I mean MANY new customers where there cars had crap tunes and all blew motors; this was after I asked the same question of OP in the local socal groups.
Thats too bad, i remember when they use to host a show on a Saturday the day before fabulous fords back in the day. Lots of Socal people would vouch for them back then.
I had my 03 Cobra with a 2.3 whipple tuned by ret. It took him like an hour. Needless to say after a second trip to him I was still not happy with it and went somewhere else. Adam from spankin time is tuning my 2.9 whipple cobra now.
prolly not gonna go to ret after what ive heard. Where is spankin time, I am most likely going to go to Gio performance since he specializes in SVT stuff.
Ive also heard good things about Gio. He used to have a shop right next to TCI (Total Cost Invovled) in Ontario. TCI used him to tune all of their Ford products including coyote-swapped hot rods and such.
So he magically tunes again? He did a very meh job on my pulley only car; car runs and is safe but it’s very rich at idle.
Asked him if I could do more tuning to dial it in and he said he left to Utah and now he’s magically back I see.
Edit: what I mean is drivability is just not good; he took over 8 hours to tune a simple combo; hope you have a better experience than I did.
I had a similar experience and also went elsewhere.
