    Here is a link to their website. I have contacted English Racing but they no longer offer Black Box tuning for our cars. Claiming that they always come in bricked, even after confirming with them that mine is not bricked and I have been making adjustments myself they have not responded at all.

    If you're looking for someone to tune your black box, reach out to @dacowgod , you can purchase a remote tune directly from his website www.rixracing.com

    I dont really like the idle of a remote tune I'd rather it be on a dyno. I dont see it being 100% when it's a remote tune and I have to do street driving and pulls I'm assuming.

    You could always coordinate with him and a local shop with a dyno. Remote tune simply means he won't be physically with you, doesn't mean you have to do it on the street. Worth having the conversation with him in my opinion as he knows the software and all of its quirks..

    True I have no doubt he is very knowledgable but doing that coordination with a shop will probably end up costing me nearly $500 or more for the tune including rix and the dyno price. For that cost I could just go for dsmlink and have more support. I'll keep the option in mind though.

    Honestly, if you have the option to, go for link. I'm actually in the midst of a remote tune on a black box and just getting everything hooked up and logging properly has been the biggest headache of my entire build.. and considering I'm doing a full GST swap on my 99 eclipse Spyder GS m/t, while utilizing a wiring harness from a 97 GSX a/t, that's saying a LOT.. my biggest regret at this point is not just spending the money on link..

    Don't get me wrong, the black box IS capable.. but in my personal opinion, the headaches associated with it are NOT worth the cost savings...

    I've been playing around with mine but after installing my 680cc injectors just cant dial it in. Has a weird lean spot when accelerating where it bogs down for a second then it takes off. I've adjusted anything to do with that area of fuel delivery and it doesnt change anything. And there isnt a ton of support for the black box on here. And my lack of knowledge doesnt help any.
