I wanted to make a quick post to share some of the vehicles we own and drive here on a daily basis. I always feel its nice to know you are dealing with enthusiasts and that the people who make the products, use the products.

We'll start here in the CSR department.

I drive a 2013 Cadillac ATS 2.0T. Great little car, and even better after we developed tunes for it, adding over 50 rwhp to the mix. (EDIT, caddy is gone, new 2017 Charger Scat Pack shown below)

Garrett drives a 2000 Lightning. Fun truck, has a few mods, upgraded 90mm MAF, pulley, etc. Obviously, Diablo tuned as well.

Daniel drives a 2005 Mustang GT. He takes a lot of heat for it, but is a huge Mustang fan. Car has a CAI and Diablo tune. (traded in for 15 Ram Longhorn)

Then there's the drift crew....Tucker and Cameron both drive 240s, one hatch and one a coupe. Both have fun little turbo 4's, tuned with appropriate software for those applications. Hopefully there is an LS swap in the future with these guys.

Anthony has a recently acquired 2014 Mustang GT. Awesome Coyote power, has a few mods planned and of course, its tuned as well.
He also has an 04 Ram Rumble Bee.

Stephen has a G8 GT with a cam swap, longtunes, etc.

Paul has a 700 rwhp Bright Green Whipple'd GT, and a sweet SHO.

Wyatt has a 2006 Wrangler that hates to be flashed, but goes through the mud ;)

Bryan drives a sweet 16 Ram single cab hot rod.

Now for the calibrators and Engineering team...

Matt drives....a bunch of cars? His main focus is his F1X powered, 2012 GT. Its a monster and should be a super fast beast when he finally finishes it ;)
He also has a 65 (?) Mustang that hes doing a Coyote swap on.

Brian drives a 2013 F250 6.7 Diesel. Its tuned and likely surprises a few sports cars on the street.

Chris drives a Mega cab Ram with the 6.7 Cummins, and...a 6 speed manual. Wont see too many of those :) Tuned with Superchips/Edge. He also has a Ford Monster truck, and seems to buy/sell vehicles daily. (edit, sold monster truck, sold the old Ram, driving a 19 Cummins and a ridiculous 750+ rwhp LS swapped/prochgarged 240 [with a sequential trans???])

Jenzen drives a nasty 600+ rwhp procharged C5. Its a monster for sure.

Zach drives an AMG E55, its a solid performing Euro sedan. (sold the AMG, drives a 14 F250 6.7 now) (truck is gone, 19 M2 in its place, also has a poor little C5 Z06 that gets no love)

Max has a nasty C6 Z06, with heads/cam, etc, and it makes like 560 rwhp and shakes the building when he fires it up :) (another sequential trans??)

Jim drives the Hell Kitty....gotta have one of those when you are the leader in DCX tuning. It has a CAI and Diablo tune and goes like mad.

Ryan drives a Focus ST, fun little car that we used as part of the tune development for that application.

Chris has a pretty stock, but tuned, Chrysler 300C. (Strike that, Chris is now driving a 16 CTS-V Sport, gorgeous white model, and also has a Vortech'd 96/97 GT around here somewhere)

Captain Dan drives a 2016 Camaro 2.0T, all stock currently. (Poor camaro is gone, Audi RS5 in its place!)

Then there are the company trucks, like our 14 JK with the Superchips wrap, lift, wheels tires, tuned, etc.
A brand new 2017 Silverado 5.3/8 speed GONE
A new 2017 F250 6.7 Diesel.
A new 2017 JK Rubicon. Cancel that, 18 JL in its place now (lifted, wrapped)
A 2015 F150 ecoboost 3.5. Cancel that, replaced with 18 F150 Diesel
18 Mustang GT GONE
There are a few more, but I can't think of all of them right now, I will update as they come to mind :)


Thanks!

19 Silverado 6.2 replaced the 17 Silverado.
19 Ram Etorque 5.7
19 Audi RS5
17 Raptor
05 SRT4
19 Redeye

BTW, this just our Sanford, FL location. We have another full staff in Utah and lots more cool vehicles out there. More diesels than anything else, but still some cool and powerful rides, like the 2013 Challenger build we did for the Diablo brand, with forged pistons/rods, Whipple 2.9 blower, and full blackheart exhaust, on airbags :)

Much more to list but got to get back to work ;)

Feel free to check out my build thread for both of these cars here: http://zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=625824

My plans currently are to finish the current LS1 car I have, selling the SR20 from my daily and purchase either a GTO or cheap car to daily and then swap another LS1 into the current 240sx daily. This second LS would be stock though and would be a fun daily/skid pad car.

Well, out with the old, in with the new!

Caddy is gone, new car is in :)

2017 Dodge Charger Scat Pack, in Go ManGo!

Massive 392 Power. I missed having V8 power under the hood, and I went from just enough power in the 2.0t to the most powerful N/A V8 you can get these days, and I couldn't be happier!! The 8 speed rocks, no complaints whatsoever with how it has behaved thus far.

This car will serve as the in house development vehicle for our 2017 support, I'll share dyno gains once it gets strapped down :)

Heres some pics.
