What is Etuning and does it work?

Etune or Etuning: to create a custom ECU/EMS calibration/map for an engine/car through the internet (from a remote location). This process usually requires datalogs to be sent through email to the tuner who will review said datalogs and email an updated calibration/map back to the customer/car.

Etuning has opened up opportunities for people in remote places without any local “tuner” to build the car of their dreams and have it professionally tuned for 500-800 usd. Over the past 7 years Etuning has become increasing popular with our customers both international and domestic. Brewed Motors offers...

Rally style Anti lag systems, set up and tuning

After such positive feedback to our last post (click here for the Intro to Anti Lag) explaining the basic functions and design of multiple types of Anti lag systems aka ALS we are back again to provide a LONG overdue follow up. I will go over the 2 most popular Anti Lag Systems that we commonly set up and tune on both shop and customer cars; Throttle Bypass ALS and Secondary Air Injection ALS.

What if something as simple as the flick of a switch meant your turbo would deliver any amount of boost you desire from idle to redline? Power bands and torque curves from your turbocharged...

AEM smart coils/LSx coils on Apexi Power FC

Using the AEM smart coils as a replacment for your stock oem coils is a GREAT option for many Power FC users. Nissan SR20det and RB20, RB25, RB26 can all easily be swapped to the AEM smart coils for a MUCH hotter spark resulting in crisp throttle response, a better over all burn and higher power without ever blowing out spark even at 30+ PSI of boost. For those of you on an extra tight budget you can also use LS1, LS2 and LS7 coils which can be found on ebay or in the scrap yards for roughly 80% the cost of NEW AEM smart coils. Keep in mind used coils are not always the best option and...

Why do you need to Sync your timing?

Syncing the ignition timing when using and AEM is a key step in the start up process. Using a timing light to check physical timing at the engine matches the timing value displayed in the AEM tuner software will ensure the timing #s in the map and in the data logs are 100% accurate.

Nissan RB powered BMW E36 street machine

We like to joke about our addiction to the automobile and internal combustion engines. Something about the sounds, smells and moving at high speeds (straight or sideways) gets the adrenaline flowing in just the right way. Unfortunately driving a purpose built track car on the street does not make for a good daily driver. Things like solid engine mounts and spherical bearings VS rubber bushings make for a less than “comfortable ride” not to mention the sound of straight cut gears and fuel pumps whining away. So what’s a motorsports addict need to do? Build a “street car”!

Some great shots from our overseas customers' C6 Corvette. This car terrorizes tires and can be seen cruising around New Caledonia. The Vette is making some serious power thanks to a Whipple Supercharger, ID 2000cc injectors, Kelford Cam and a set of Lingenfelter heads. The wheel and tire combo is just as menacing. Black CCW SP550 wheels measuring 18x10" in the front and a massive 19x13" in the rear sitting under Z06 widebody fenders. The handling of the car is greatly improved with a full set of Pfadt Coilovers and swaybars.
