    I just had my 16v rewired with adaptronic and tuned by him and it's running perfect. Was pretty cheap also.

    He took the ae86 with 20v microtech got it tuned by him he ran fine low-end power but in the high-end it ran rough had to get a re-tuned

    Another mate s13 with nistune that was tuned by him took it to the track and ran rich the whole time on the track. You can smell the un-burnt fuel when it's idles

    180sx had chip installed and tuned By aswell and car kept shutting down when it ran warm. Found out the chip wasn't solder properly

    There are good story's from him but this is my experience with him

    Running rich on idle? Sounds fine to me.

    Really, out of the three above things mentioned, the last one seems to be the only legitimate issue, the first one is potentially not a tune issue at all.

    I have had a few of my own cars tuned by Sammy (Dr. Drift) and I personally have never had an issue, nor have many of my friends. You get "problems" and "stories" from different tuners all the time, Im recommending Dr. Drift, in the end, its up to you.

    The only problem I had was that the work took longer than what he originally told me but that was only because I asked him to do a few extra things. I would recommend him as well. Top bloke...
