I would have held on to my ISF if I would have been able to toss a supercharger on it.
I had to up my game and the IS platform wasn't up to the task. Hopefully you are able to take it to that level!
Good luck and I can't wait to see it.

Any updates Brandon? They DM'd me and offered a free tune this Wednesday morning but I'm skeptical.

This could be Game changer in so many ways, for the entire F line ISF,RCF and GSF. One of big reason many ISF owner left was the inability to go further with car, with no tuning option available, now this could change the biggest down fall for F line of cars.

This would put ISF as well as RCF and GSF right smack in middle of there biggest rivals. With tune or big hp SC along with upgrade suspension components from companies like FIGS mega arms etc, RR racing, with highend coilovers from companies like Ohlins, Penskie.etc, will enable ISF to compete against its contemporary rivals Vette, M4,C63, GT350, SS Camaro, ATS V, CTS V, same applies to RCFas well.

IMO this tune is even more important to RCF and GSF. With it they will now become competitive against there rivals having the one thing that hurt them the most HORSEPOWER. If you read the reviews of GSF they all agree that it's well balanced car, ride, handling great it just lacked one thing HP. Imagine what GSF or RCF would be like with additional HP. I think it would change the game at least for me, now I might actually consider on of these two car as next ride. With out the tuning solution, I wouldn't be looking at either of them, and like so many other would be moving on to another platform.

I keep telling myself, despite the fact that many have tried, and they have all failed, it only takes one person to succeed...here's hoping that this really works.

I'm sure you remember back in the days(or at least heard) when the first MKIV Supra churned out 700whp on a bone stock engine. For years no body was making big power. Everyone was skeptical on how strong the 2JZ was and didn't think that first Supra was real. That power level on a stock engine was unheard of. But right after that one Supra pulled that off, the flood gates opened and EVERYONE followed suit.
I am hoping that is what we are experiencing here.

lol Funny I was around when those flood gates opened, lived in Texas at the time ( man i miss the late 90's).. Seeing a DD MKIV supra do a 9 second 1.4 mile was insane..

I wish you the very best of luck! I don't think I'd ever want to go forced induction, however a correct flash tune, higher lift cams & the usual I/H/E would interest me.

Of curiosity, would all this enable you to flash JDM or Australian ISF ECU's? I ask given I'm from Down Under.

I've always been sceptical of reflashes (without hands on time with the specific car). Mainly due to bad experiences from over a decade ago with Jap "chips". Would this self learn & adjust to a degree to optimise for each vehicle (with specific mod based maps loaded)?

This is huge news, looking forward to seeing the results of the new maps on cars with the standard bolt on intake and exhaust mods.

If your magic can be worked on UK spec cars then you will have a few customers on this side of the pond.

I'm already on it! Lol.

Looks like UK ECU can be done by Rafi as well mate.

I'll probably get mine done when money and travels allow (makes sense to do it when I am in NJ/PA/NY on business next).

When (Notice i didn't say if) Rafi comes out with the SC setup depending on the numbers, it would give me a reason to look at the RCF
