Tune first or tune after you get a higher octane?

I'm glad to hear your new tunes arrived to your email! You definitely want to run all of the lower octane out of your tank and make sure the proper octane is running through the car, that the tune calls for. If you run a lower octane than what the tune calls for, you could experience some pinging or detonation etc..

It sounds like you're good to go and will be enjoying your new tune in no time! Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future.

Actually do have ONE quick question. Or I guess anyone could hop on this one. What does the three customs specifically do? I'm sure it told me before I made the purchase but I'm to lazy to look. Therefore I'm curious now again what they do? Thanks

It's not how much money you spend, it's how impressed you make the company, reason I have my sponsorship with Ortiz Performance.

Well Ik there's 2 types, Ik wer not gonna be getting sponsors, but there's performance, which obviously you have David, and looks, if it stands out and grabs attention, like my car, I'm always having people complement my car and how it looks, after all in 2000 like only 3000(i think) were made tropical green

Just because yours is rare in your area doesn't mean that there's a crapload somewhere else. Sponsors are all about the DRIVER and their car.

Hey David, you think if I can get my car as fast as yours (in like a million years) Ortiz can sponsor me? I'd represent him in the California tracks hahah I have a wild imagination

Possible lol

Something else I'd like to add to my earlier post, it's also about what you can do to help the person/company too. You can't just get sponsored and not do anything to better them aside from put a decal on your car to say "hey look at this." Plus you have to knowingly and not blindly be able to trust their work to promote them, he does a hell of a job and I'm glad to rep his tuning work..
