Contacting Will from Overkill for V6 tune

I've been wanted to get a tune for my V6, and Overkill as been at the top of my list. But I've heard Will from Overkill is a one man show so from what I've been reading, contacting him for questions is pretty much non existent.

I'm just wondering if anyone has gotten the tune from him recently and how long it takes to get back to you. Mainly because I don't mind being patient, but I don't want to be spending $600+ just for him to never get back to me.

Definitely hit and miss. I got my initial tune fairly quick but then did some data logging and had a couple of change requests and never heard back from him, and that was almost a year a go. Tried multiple emails and messaged him on Facebook. First tune has been good though so I haven't taken the time to try again. I probably just got lost in the shuffle.

I've noticed the big selling point for people on the forums was the whole "Free Retunes", which is kinda a bummer if he never gets back to you. But with the original tune would you say the differences with the car was worth it?

The difference is night and day with the original, at least on the auto with the TCM tune. I'm happy with it.

Hopefully some others can chime in with their own experiences with re-tunes.

You also have trifecta.... though you have to pay extra for the custom tuning option.. the canned tune (would be similar to will's initial tune in the situation where you never get a custom one made/sent/requested) ...is similarly like night and day from the stock.

at least from what i remember of stock. car wasn't stock tuned past like 6 months of ownership in 2016.

I have 16 RS and a lot of mods (3.23's, Borla, intake, ect) and I went with Trifecta. The main reason was price. I got it right before a holiday weekend on a big sale and saved over $300 I'm there too much less versus what Overkill is charging. Right out of the box it ran perfectly and all of the car details I specified on order were set correctly. I've had a few follow-up questions and a retune done since then all of which were handled right away with very little wait time. I know a lot of people don't talk about Trifecta a lot but in my book they are really solid and I'm very happy with their company and product.

I'm tuned by Overkill. Sometimes it may take a while for him to get back to you, but I've never had Will ignore any of my requests. I've had 8-10 engine tune revisions and several TCM tune revisions in the year or so that I've been tuned.

Guess I need to give it another try...
