Please tell me more.
No, that's absurd.

No way ever 400 WHP on tune alone.

With camshafts, headers, intake and some port work? Sure.

It RIPS.
How'd you miss this?

My reply isn't directed at the folks that know... a tune alone on these NA cars will not get you 400hp at the wheels. These cars are not turbocharged.

Just wanna update this thread to let people know that Jailbreak is still around and just as great as they were in the past.

I initially dismissed them because they went through some company name changes and different people, which got confusing. I needed to tune an ESS as quickly as possible and almost everyone recommended didn't get back to me, didn't wanna tune a stock DME, or were afraid of the modifications I did to the ESS kit; not to mention I looking for someone to tune the car within a 48hrs window lol

I made a post on my FB group and @Seedster had linked me to Matt (owner of Jailbreak), whom I sent a PM to and got a reply within 10-20 mins. He explained what happened with the business name and how GSR-Technik came about and how it's now back to Jailbreak and only Jailbreak.

We started a dialog and he was available to tune the next morning!


Brought ESS car to the dyno and we were making absolutely terrible numbers in the beginning. 308whp at one point! After frustratingly revising the loaded tune several times; he started from scratch and we ended the day at 522whp. The car is still a bit funky due to a bad CPS or VANOS solenoids. And we couldn't get an accurate AFR reading, so we played it as safe as possible. The car will be getting a few things fixed, methanol injection, then a retune.


We're also currently tuning an RK car, which is proving to be a nightmare because, of course, anything RK is garbage. And so is TTFS. But I'm going to save that shitshow for another thread, don't worry
