I don't know what started it but Eugene Turkov and Moncef Faik are going at it. What I get out of it, Moncef apparently made some comments about Eugene that Eugene feels Moncef was trying to slander him. They are getting into it about each others tuning capabilities.

Basically the gist is this; Eugene accidentally posted the wrong graph (and immediately changed it), and Moncef went and screenshotted it, saying that Eugene was taking Moncef's graph's to make it look like his own.

Then the whole thread is basically about how Moncef has turned off knock detection to get the power he's getting. So in essence, in order for him to make the power he's making he turns off knock detection, BUT Moncef NEVER admits nor denies it,but instead basically just jokes around it.

Personally, the power would be nice, but better safe than sorry, the OEM has wayyy much more money in R&D than any one tuner, so on this one, I side more towards Eugene, but the flip side is that it probably would take a long time to blow up a poorly tuned NA engine. Now this is all hearsay, and I don't have any real proof behind it, but there apparently is more cars that have popped on one of those tunes, but who knows, poor maintenance, or lack of oil could cause that, but all of that is conjecture until people step forward.

Lol Facebook at it finest. But I heard more than once that admin turns off knock to gain power. Can’t hate him for giving those hot bois what they want. He caters towards flame mappers and kids who think 3 inch intakes will give them 150hp. He is taking full advantage of them and you can’t tell them otherwise. Kudos to him.

What would qualify someone as a "high" level tuner (not sure that makes a difference in this situation) and I thought the Akuma intakes were 2.75", not 3"?

i like you.

you know your stuff.

a. trolling over tuner levels. end of the day if they get you power and it doesnt blow up its a win. more a joke because those idiots are playing pee pee touch over fb.

b. i measured when i got them in 2012 never since. i could be wrong on 3" but they're either 2.75 or 3". i'm man i always add on round up on inches.......regardless no one else did this until i think AAM did it in 15 with the insert then Z1 in 16/17 with their version. same time frame thing admintuning did theirs. so i did have about 3 years or so with the biggest well me and 2 other guys who had them. think my intakes may be the last set in existence. about 3-4 years ago met the guy with the only other remaining set but heard he totaled it.

I agree with you on that... Seb tuned my car, so I have no dog in the fight other than having the Admin intakes which to me were overpriced to begin with but meh. Eugene was able to help out one of my friends that even Seb ran into issues with so he's good in my book but I don't have anything negative to say about Moncef either.

Thanks for reading the sarcasm on the intake jab; I tried getting a set of them waaaay back when but by that point they were discontinued and a thing of legend. I ended up purchasing the AAMs but then the Admins came out so I sold those, and bought these (I was trying to match the EPS TB inlets) and now prepping to sell these to SC it.

Seb is probably the guy for the Z so yea in my opinion he's way above both of the aforementioned people lol

i got lucky i guess with the intakes.

set 000 (test set) got destroyed.
set 001 - destroyed last i heard
set 002 - on my car.

i cant remember if they made 003 but if they did those are gone as well. pretty solid chance the only example left is on my car lol

also the SC on the Z is useless. turbo or NA are really the only ways to go.

Please elaborate on why you think a sc on a z is useless.

ok, let me explain that more.

base stillen SC kit is trash. too much money and no power.

now, if you get that, spend more money and get the A2A kit, it is better but still tops out at like 600-650whp.

after all that money spent you could have gone TT with a much higher top HP capabilities.

also, SC is the way to go if you want a small power bump and have 7AT and dont want to spend the money to get a built tranny.
