    I was reading somewhere that Ferdinand Piech drives a Cayman with a flat 8 in it. Tells you a lot about the line-up.

    When was the M3/4 ever riced out from the factory?

    Forgot to post this the other day. Spotted at a fancy restaurant in Dallas. Never seen one in the flesh before.

    i've seen an odd number of the 8's in NY. Maybe 5 or 7, but not 6. All were prime examples, too.

    About 80% of these companies are run like shit...hopefully you'd be going to one of the very established ones

    I can see that and now you've got me concerned. The company in this case is Cobb Tuning. They deal mostly with turbocharged cars and are famous for modifying the GTR's ecu first.

    Any thoughts on them?

    They've been around for a while. It'd be worth a look at least I'd say.

    Cobb is also very active with Subaru WRX and Mitsubishi Evo (both turbocharged applications) modifications. They are definitely a big fish in the US mod ecosystem. As turbocharging becomes more standard due to MPG constraints, I imagine theyre in a good position for the future.

    Cobb, like most aftermarket tuners, usually have products that sell themselves. However, customer service and support are almost just as important. Communication is key!

    I was behind a highly tuned Cobb WRX on the track once. He burst into flames and had to pull off to the side. It was rather exciting. No knock against Cobb --- that's what you get for squeezing a tiny turboed engine hard.

    Most tuner companies, even the moderately large ones, are mom-and-pop shops, with all the baggage that comes with that.

    It's definitely exciting and the position is really cool. It's out of my experience range but I'm confident I could crush it.

    I like the fact that they're a smaller shop than, say, Dinan, for example, as the role I'm applying for would be "easier" to do well on than at a larger shop.
