Does anyone have there 6 tuned professionally?...I live in SoCal and would like to know a place that specializes in tuning 6's...I mean I can just go to any shop that does it but you're always run the risk of people doesn't know how to tune it right...I have the CP-E system (CAI and headers) and want to make sure that the whole set-up is installed and running properly...

don't go to tri-point, they'll just turn you away or charge too much to change everything.

there is no tuning for you car, though i don't know if you have a 2.3, 3.0, speed....? BUT i do know whatever it is, you can't get it tuned. unless you pay for an aftermarket ECU, you are stuck. though CP-E does a good job out of the box.



...edit, just figured if you have CP-E headers, you have to have a 3.0. now with that figured out.....nope, no tuning

I was just asking because now I have a fan issue- fan starts right as I turn the ignition at a cold start...I understand that what does tuning has to do with it...well, I want to make sure that I installed the headers right...unfotunately, I don't know if I did or didn't- I have a CEL and I need a reliable shop to check it out...Damn dealer wouldn't check it out due to the modifications I did...Nevertheless, I'm worried about the fan...this was an issue with my car before and my car overheated (there was a recall for the fan modulator failure and I was never warned)...so, if your fan still runs even after your engine was turned off, you might go have it checked...

mr trea, atom44wat, myself and countless others have scanners if all you want to do is check out the CEL....u will see a CEL with headers....usually something related to the 02 sensor reading to slowly or not reading at all...atom gets a reading to slowly code, i get code that it doesnt read at all...nevertheless...if thats all ur looking to do let us know when ur free and maybe we can set up a date so u can come check it... by the way, atom has msds headers, i have prototype dc sports headers...

about ur fan...does it also stay on when u turn the car off? im unclear about that...let us know

yeah, if you are in socal you should swing by sometime, it's easy. the fan is a dealer issue, and if you are under warranty there should be no issue.

doing a brakes and suspension all around on a V6 on friday here, as well as swapping out brakes on an M3 as well....it's a car day, stop by!

tri-point is a race team....they don't make things for, forgive the term, "street racers" who never track their car. the stuff they make is real race stuff, looks that way, acts that way & feels that way in the cars.

now i am in no way saying the TriPoint guys are bad or try to rip people off. what i'm saying is if you want a race car they will set you up, but their stuff is far from worth it if you don't track your car. they can set you up with a MOTEC system like they use and tune whatever you want for 7k or so i'm sure.
