I was told buy ESS today that stock tune will add 15whp and aftermarket filter/ exhaust tune will add around 30 - 40 whp.

I got DCT just like yours, after my exhaust installed car runs great, more power. But after the CEL came on ,my car run like shit now. I need to get the ESS TUNE ASAP. I talked to all the tuner on the phone today, and I decided to pick ESS TUNE.

The CEL will come on when you get a full exhaust system.

You have a slip on system so you don't need a tune, I guess that's what Ricky mean.

If you like some parts about my car, feel free to PM me or 808E90 (Ricky), since he knows all about my car.
I just saw this car the other day at the intersection of Kalanianaole and Lunalilo Home Rd. You live around here?

Yes!!! my exhaust!!!! haha.

Thanks to Ricky (808E90)!!!
Got my Ti Exhaust installed by Ricky today at his shop.
As I mentioned from the previous post, he was an excellent guy to work with!!!!!
(check out pg4 on this thread, I wrote an elaborate review)
His work was great and he was very cautious about handling things.
If you need advises, you should go talk to him.


I just want to say.... his service = WWWWOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!

O by the way, Ricky took couple photos after the installation since I didn't have a camera with me. I hope he posts up some pics of my exhaust later.

Maybe in the last two years or so, I've been getting into detailing my own car and using better products than what you find at your everyday auto store or Wal-Mart etc. The problem is that only a few places on the island actually sell quality products. If you need detailing supplies, I highly recommend PakShak. He has many different products (polishes, waxes, sealants, pads, microfiber cloths, brushes, etc) and gives solid advice. Ranney is super friendly and remembers that my wife and I just had a baby when I come in. I'll keep going back there for my detailing needs or to try new products!

Who do you guys recommend for safety inspection? I should have no problem passing, just curious who is trustworthy.
