If anyone is in the carolinas/virginia area i highly reccommend this shop. Jeff does awsome tuning work on everything that he does. He's also doing some pretty sick cam packages right now. On my 2wd TBSS with efans and homemade CAI I went from 318 rwhp to 351 rwhp with his tune. With just those 2 mods he spent about 3 hours tuning and I had 5 dyno pulls. The tune ran me $300 flat rate (doesn't charge extra for dyno time) and updates are free. Check him out if you can.

Yup.. Two big thumbs up for the ol' "Milkman". He is quite the badass :) .

He helped me out a lot w/ my LT1 a few years back and has been helping me figure stuff out w/ my TBSS right now.

A tune from Jeff is definitely in my future. He came up to Hampton Roads, VA and I watched him tune an 06 Z06. I was awesome to watch that Z06 pull 520 rwhp. I almost pissed on myself.:coolthumb::biggrin2: :jawdrop:

he uses HP Tuners on a dynojet. His price is great if you're in the area. i spend about $110 on gas to go see him and get my tune and still came out cheaper than most mail order tunes. He also said he's done some retunes that were previously done by vector and PCM for less and was like what the fuck were they thinking. Jeff's also the type of person thats not going to sell you somthing just to make money, he wants his customers to be 100% sastified with the product they are getting, even if it means he's not making any money. He definately knows his shit, he was a computer science professor at USC before he started tuning cars. So far he said he's tuned about 15,000+ cars since he started about 7 years ago.

That's his everyday price too. Jeff is a real good guy and, he has some serious toys. They have even had a car on Pinks. Check out his website.

I am torn... I dunno whether to go visit Mr Creech when I go home, or to wait for when I'm back in FL and go to Mr Formato... Shit... $300 is an awesome price...

TBSS was dyno tested for baseline on 08/05/06 at Automotive Technology in Virginia Beach with a best pull of 307.86 HP and 317.41 TQ



Added SLP dual exhaust and IEATSRT8 CAI and had it tuned by Jeff Creech at Carolina Auto Masters in Durham, NC. Baseline was 320.6 HP and 348.7 TQ. After dyno tune 354.9 HP and 362.7 TQ. Good gains with great driveability and throttle response. Thanks, Jeff! I can't wait to get to the track!
