Im not sure how many of you guys go to them for tuning. But I've just heard that they're shop is cleared out and that rus is selling everything to give people there money back.

Me too. Hopefully it's true, like I said I've heard it was cleared out from more than a couple people. But I'd hate to spread this and it not be true.

But I do know that the fabricator is leaving.

Talked to a guy at the last track day I was at. Said he was super behind on EVERYTHING and seemed super stressed. Thought he was doing well? I really don't get it...

I hate to see an ecoboost builder go under but sounds like he did a lot of people wrong

**** that is bad, I feel for him, he has put a lot of effort into our platform and it is a shame that it has come to this.
Why feel bad for him? People have been making payments on cars that have been sitting with him for over a year that haven't had anything done to them except the engine being thrown in the back seat. His greed overtook his logic and he bit off way more than he could chew taking payments of 100% up front then never being able to get a hold of. He was just on vacation last week in my area. Who's money do you think he used for that?

Sucks only for the reason it was theoretically a nice addition to the tuning of this car and the platform

Maybe DEAD Hook was not the best name for company after all, maybe it was a word of warning.

He's truly a good guy and I've been to his shop a few times. It's sad this had to happen, but he does need to be held responsible. What a bummer.

Yeah, from everything I've heard he deserves what's coming to him. But it just sucks kinda too I wanted to get a tune & crash bar from them. Lol

Didn't know that he did that, I hadn't seen any threads on issues that bad. That's a shame that it got that out of hand. Regardless I hope everyone gets their money back and that he learns a valuable lesson out of this experience.

Good riddance. My buddies dead!ck built fiesta motor still doesn't run LOL
I paid him to tune the focus after I had the motor built and all that good stuff and he couldn't even get it to idle right.... kept trying to fix it ended up going with Adam at tune plus and it made more power on 93 than their last tune on e50 at 27 lbs on a 3071

I had just ordered a tune from them and I'm on the 3rd revision and boom. The company blows up lol, probably gonna contact paypal to try to get my money back so I can go with JST.
