Good day everyone!

My name is Alex, and I'm currently living in Russia. I'm a JDM car enthusiast since 2006 )

In 2008 I've purchased 1999 Toyota Altezza and started to use it on local sports events. Day by day I tried to improve this good balanced (IMHO) chassis until 2010 when my lovely 3SGE BEAMS is gone... Those times I've finished all suspension and steering related works and tried myself in EFI tuning. That time, the main problem was the lack of knowledge and good places to get it. My first standalone was Apexi Power FC and I dealt with it only via the Commander ))) After my first engine has blown, I've decided that "EFI TUNING IS MAGIC!" )) So, the next step to improve the powerless was the swap my BEAMS to the GOD of the engines - 1JZGTE ) I choused jzx110 chassis as the donor platform and swap my blown 3SGE to JZX110 1JZGTE with the r154 mission in my Altezza with all stock service functionality alive(dash, drive assistance, a/c, etc.) So, it was 2010 and I haven't heard about similar projects those time and this project was helping to improve my car electronic and wiring skills (I thank a lot to my first Tezza).

In 2013 I moved to live in Tokyo and had to sell this Tezza. 2013 was my "gold" time! I've visited the Ebisu circuit, meet Andy Gray and purchase a JZX90 Toyota Chaser Tourer V as a circuit car. But this story does not cover that great time )))

Since I've returned the Motherland, I felt a necessity of driving not a just car, but a fun drive car. So... I've bought another Tezza ))) One day I've tried to find a source of information I needed and have found the HPA website, check the promo video and get a free course of introducing to EFI tuning, where Andre told the brilliant phrase: "Tuning is not the magic - It's science you can learn".

So I'm here and I'd like to learn this science to prevent my recent mistakes, tune my current BEAMS properly and... who knows )))

Hello great times you have had Andy is a Great guy
