Boosted J's in AZ?
Tuesday, August 07, 2012 11:44 AM
Hello everybody,

Finally got the build completed and brought her home from the shop... tune's still a little rough, running around 270 to the wheels on a built 2.2 Eco & 4T40 w/ Hahn Stage II. Wanted to reach out to other members in AZ to get some recommendations on local resources (parts, tuning, etc...) for J's in the AZ/ Phoenix metro area.

Thanks in advance

Theres a few here still, but i think the only one from back in the day might be Alan. Eric isnt really into it anymore, Todd moved.

There is a new generation though but 90% of them are ricer style.

alans still works on his every day. eric wrecked charlie (which was collens) so he is a v8 guy now with a boosted eco project in the works.

i have mine blown now, there is a navy guy who comes back sometimes who is boosted homemade kit style, another navy guy who is supering his soon, and other then that the only other ones i know of dont get on here at all or are or were never part of azjbo.

Nice to meet you all, I'm Alaric. Living in Tempe right now. Moved from Guam and Saipan about 7 years ago. They're little dots in the Pacific not many know of... though the navy guys EvoFire mentioned would probably know right where they're at. Had a great job with travel benefits, an island paradise home and the life of a simple fool... then I met this girl from Phoenix... the rest of the story resembles a bad made for TV movie.

I'm somewhat new to all this and still learning. Working the kinks out of the tune right now, got a guy doing it with HPT... it's just that sometimes it feels as if we are re-inventing the wheel. Thanks for all the input.

I dont know if Chris considers me one of the "navy" guys... ha! I used to live out in North Phoenix but im stationed in NOrfolk, VA as of current. The cavy was moved to VA with me though...

But yes...not many shops around the area. Performance Muffer is great for exhaust. Lopers has your run of the mill parts...mainly stainless line, fittings, etc. But they're mainly V8 guys. YOur best bet is your garage, online shops and HPT

I am One of the other "Navy" guys which should be supercharged soon after I get done moving into the new house (which is next month) that's more important on my list right now. But i come back to the valley from time to time and will try to come back to the west coast when it comes time to transfer. AZ has a pretty decent J body scene not as good as it use to be but not bad none the less.

As far as parts and work the local J owners should be able to hook you up and teach you a thing or two. Chris is a good guy and has lots of knowledge to share. Other then that I've been away for a while so I'm not sure who's still active and what not.

I guess I should have said 'highly modified' Hahn kit... the piping Hahn sent was pretty useless, ended up having to get most of it custom. You might be better piecing it together rather than buying their kit. Brooks Racing in Mesa did the work for me... call and talk to Emma, tell her I sent you

I'm at fort huachuca, near sierra vista,AZ. I don't know much about phoenix, but a guy in Tucson, Evan from es tuned dyno tuned my pcm and portfueler on my eco cavy, only 300 for 4 sessions too. Other than that I've had to search everywhere to find anything good for a l61.

Chris you left me out.... Once the house is done being built and move in, the cavy will start its over haul. Will be getting the built motor and Turbo. Along with a bunch of other parts.
