You should check BMS. Terry has both the top mount FFTEC and bottom mount FFTEC on cars. I believe he already started doing some tuning on the bottom mount and the top mount has just been installed and his car delivered.

Rob actually answers e-mails and has a more professional matter.

Can't remember who has done it, but you can be the guinea pig lol

Not sure if you missed my post but you should get in contact with FFTEC, and then BMS for the tuning.

Vargas was very upfront and responsive to emails and calls when I dealt with them. I had a deposit on a set of stage 2 but decided to do a motor swap instead and transfered it to another member.
