PFC Street tuning

Im curious to know if anyone has had experience or knows anyone that is old school tuner style on PFCs that will work on my car (RX-7) in the state of Texas that is not your traditional dyno and boost tuner? Im looking for the shop or person that will tune for cold starts, hot starts, cruise, hot laps, idle and overall engine protection. Will spend time driving the car with me in different scenarios to get the map right. This guy is out there hiding in plain sight waiting to be pointed out by one of you reading this. Fess up!

Ive heard there is someone named Brian in the Austin area, anyone know him?

Much to my surprise, on the way back from picking up some new RX-7 shoes from a guy in Waco I stopped outside of Georgetown to visit a shop I heard of that said they specialized in “tuners”. When I pulled up there were a veriety of WRX, Lexus and a very nice Supra sitting outside. Going in I was greeted by a very clean and well kept waiting room and office. As I walked toward the shop it was noted as very tidy and clean. Everything was well sorted and plenty of space for several cars. There was a very nice Mustang dyno setup, not your typical, with exhaust ducted. At first it appeared to me to be a paint booth.

After talking with Mohammad, the owner, he built confidence in me that he new what he was doing. 21 years experience mechanic and tuning on import cars. More importantly he has owned a dozen of his own FD’s. He also obviously knows Apexi PFC which is what I am working with. I will say that he appears to be a little picky about what he works on. I don’t see him working on your junk pile. If you have a nice car or a serious project he would be interested but he is not a band aid mechanic. Probably why he is in the middle of knowhere and survives by word of mouth with no social media. Till now

MZM Performance (512)837-6200 tell him Y8S with the black R1 sent you.

I will I’ll update in a couple weeks when the tune is done and give feedback.

MZM & crew are good folks overall, and def know their way around rotaries. Always been pleased by their various efforts on my '93 FD. Tough to get "projects" scheduled like you said, though.

Got the car back from Mohammad at MZM Performance in Georgetown and he did a good job for me. He was very thorough with the car and took his time prepping and making sure the car was ready for the dyno. He also made sure the car was dialed in with hot and cold starts and took it for a drive to be sure it was good for the real world. He has fair prices and knows these cars. If your in SA or Austin and looking for a close option this just might be your best option. Tell him Y8S sent you.

If you have access to a DATALOGIC, download the map and attach it.
I can give it a quick go over and tell you just by looking at timing split and a few other points if he really knows rotary engines.
