The main focus of FlimFlam Speed's Tuning is Ford engine and transmission performance for cars & trucks ranging from 1989 to present ( or those converted to be MAF-equipped).  Utilizing SCT software FFSpeed aims to achieve the most horsepower out of your combo while retaining as close to factory driveability as possible, and most importantly staying safe and reliable so that your Ford vehicle lives a long life.

With the growing popularity of mail-order tuning companies it is sometimes hard to justify why someone would need custom tuning done to their car on a dyno versus just buying an off-the-shelf tune by a mega online company.  The answer is simple.  Every car is different and it's called "custom" tuning for a reason.  Without having your car on a dyno you are risking not knowing if your vehicle has the correct air/fuel mixture or if its running the correct amount of timing.  Even if you run a wideband in the car to check AFR you may still be leaving power on the table without knowing how it responds to timing.  Why have it be guess work when you can have THE answer in person, while you wait.

 Not only that, but Kevin @ FlimFlam Speed is always happy to involve you into your tuning process and fully inform you along the way every step on what he is doing, how the tuning process is going, and every last little detail he can supply you throughout or after your tuning session is over.  Don't risk thousands of dollars in possible damage to your car or truck and please consider letting a professional tune your car in person on a dyno to get the most out of your combination, as safely as possible.

Additionally, investing in Custom Tuning by FFSpeed is more than a one-time purchase.  Kevin has made tons of great customers and friends out of tuning their vehicles and will ALWAYS continue to help and support those who have used his tuning.  You are not just a number holding on the line waiting for a tune adjustment via email here.  If you have a question I will answer it as quickly as I can via phone or email.  

If the vehicle requires work before it can be properly tuned then Kevin will go into as much detail as needed to ensure you fully understand what needs to happen to get your Ford ready for tuning.

Performance parts consultation

From a background of running a domestic performance shop (Performance Autosport) for over 10 years, you learn a thing or two on which parts work and which are a waste of time.  Having a dyno at my disposal to personally test any and all parts that we cared to install means we had actual facts to back up the parts that we recommend.  There is nothing worse than selling parts that you have to tell a customer didn't make any additional power on the dyno, so I'm not going to waste your time.  

Don't believe "magazine horsepower" quotes when I have years of hands on research from dyno proven homework.  Not all parts are made the same and many times its definitely a "get what you pay for" scenario.  Whether its feedback on fit and finish, installation tips, or horsepower results, let me help you spend your money wisely and get the most bang for your buck.  I'm not even trying to sell you the parts.  Thats not my type of business!  I just want to help you make the right decision, do it right, and do it once!

Tuning Pricing:

Custom tuning pricing depends on the car & its modiciations.  Please contact FlimFlam Speed directly for a price quote on getting your car tuned.  Prices will include dyno time.  Visit the contact page for email and phone information.

Tuning - Starts at $150 and up per application.

Base/Start Up files for your vehicle may be available via email to get your car up and running and fully sorted before dyno time after large part changes such as fuel system upgrades, adding forced induction, etc.  These are meant to only be used to start a vehicle up after the parts are installed to verify that nothing is wrong with the car, load it on a trailer or lightly drive it to the dyno.  These are NOT tunes to drive on or go race on....I do NOT offer those types of "mail-order" tunes.

Start Up Tune via email - $150 ($100 credit goes towards final tuning)

 

Dyno rates:

3 pulls w/ AFR readings - $75

1hr dyno rental for customer tuning - $150/hr

$50 "strap down" fee for all vehicles brought to the dyno, strapped down, but then deemed not ready/safe for dyno pulls or tuning.

NASA and USDrift racers get discounts on all dyno & tuning of their competition cars

Car clubs please contact me directly for discounts for bringing 5 or more or putting together a "dyno day".

Relax...it's just a nickname.

 

Kevin "FlimFlam" Adolf, formerly shop manager and ford tuner of over 10 years at Performance Autosport, has now formed FlimFlam Speed & Custom Tuning.  When the owner of Performance Autosport decided to change direction with the business it only made sense that Kevin go out on his own and continue to support his past, present, and future customer base that he has collected from over a decade of working on Ford and several other types of vehicles.  

Engine performance is not the only type of tuning available from FlimFlam Speed.
After helping run a 3-time championship winning American Iron 2011 Mustang RTR for 4 seasons with NASA Mid-Atlantic, Kevin has become quite experienced with S197 chassis tuning and the ins-and-outs of what it takes to make them handle on top of making reliable power.

FlimFlam Speed & Custom Tuning calls EFI Performance LLC home for tuning.  Located less than 5 mins from the Richmond International Airport at 4104 Eubank Rd. Richmond, Va 23231, Kevin makes use of the 2wd Dynojet 224x in-ground chassis dyno for all tuning purposes.  

As for the "flimflam" nickname...well that involves a Las Vegas cab driver and some story of how Kevin reminded him of his brother who he called FlimFlam.  Yea, I guess you had to be there.  It stuck.  Kevin's no nonsense approach to all things automotive is anything but trickery.
