Does JNZ tuning offer any in house services? I know they are located in New Jersey.

Right in Linden:

Sean Ivey - Ivey Tune

Sean is a great guy who does a fantastic job. He is who I would go to if I were ready to have my car tuned.

Ara Arslanian started Bullish Racing, and I think you're referring to George, not Bert. George worked at Rally Motorsports when Ara hired him to run tune the twin Solaras.

Ivey is a very good tuner, Turbotrix will do you right, or you can call JNZ in Pa. I don't think JNZ has an in-house dyno yet, but I believe they have access to one.

He's a great guy but he doesn't tune Dsmlink, VPC or SAFC.

Ivey definitely does other cars besides Evos but I guess he only does standalone stuff. My second choice would probably be TurboTrix.

Sean ivey is good but he is pricey. Also, he seems to net the same awhp numbers for evos w/ boltons... always 330whp ish. Odd but it works and is a reliable tune.

Turbotrix...... no FUCKING way. The horror stories that come from this place are ridiculous. For every one person that is satisfied with turbotrix there are at least 20-30 who are not. My friend had his cluth done there(he upgraded) and the next day he had x-fer case whine. Why? Not to sure, but then again he was told to not go there and he did. But by far my favorite story was of a talon or something to that nature. Kid(16,17,18-21) goes to get his lightly modded talon tuned at turbotrix. They tune it and get some huge numbers out of his stock motor like 400whp or something of the nature. Not even two miles after leaving turbotrix, the motor blows. Kid walks back to turbotrix and they turn him away saying its not their problem. I'm sure there are plenty more out there and i actually have a few more stories but then again if i never met you, then they are just stories to you.

Sean Ivey - He can tune anything and wire a car from the ground up which not too many tooners can do.

Actually from what i remember Ara did start bullish.Ara was a Day trader in wall street.He got the name from the term Bull Market hence the name Bullish.Also FYI Manny Cruz is Tuned by a kid in the bronx.



Anyways Turbotrix is a horror show.Ivey is pricey but one of the best around.depends on what your going to tune.for flashes go to ivey once you are 100% sure that you are done with mods because it cost $500 for a flash.

Duttwieller may build cougar motors but may cruiz's twin turbo cougar motor is built by bert he just finished one and is in the process of building the other

Sorry to hear some people had bad luck at TT, but as for calling it a horror show, I'm quite sure that every single shop out there has had some unhappy customers that will now slander them. I would absolutely let them do any work I needed done on any of my cars. Others (I've heard) haven't been happy with Ivey, so he's not immune, either.

And yes, Kid, you're right, people should do some research before talking.

Slander isn't the right word I feel. Slander would imply that such accusations were false or misleading in some way. I've hung out with many different people "in the car scene" if you will and they all hate TT. Its a perfect example of them screwing up in terms of bringing in more customers. I, for sure, will never go to a shop where even a handful of people had a bad experience. In this case, its more than a handful. In a word, i learned from other people's mistakes.
