“I couldn’t be happier with the results of my tune from Mike Doban at OST Dyno.  Having a fairly radical N/A setup on my ’06 Charger with a 440 stroker, tuning has always been hit or miss, and I’ve accepted that it was no longer a truly reliable daily driver.  That all changed when Mike tuned my car.  His dedication and very detailed instructions on the kind of data to give to him resulted in nailing both part throttle and wide open tuning to where my car was truly a great daily driver again – yet a monster at the track (10.81@122)!  I also have complete confidence in the safety of the tune, as Mike spends the time to ensure the most power is made without detuning the knock sensors.  I was so comfortable with Mike’s abilities that it made it easy to bump up to a much larger cam (241/249 on a 113, 110 ICL) which Mike also nailed almost instantly.  Thanks Mike!!”

My experience with Mike Doban has been nothing less than stellar! Mike knows how to make power on so many platforms.  Mike is knowledgeable and takes genuine interest in helping me reach my goal. With Mike we set a 5.7 NA record for Lx and Lc platform Chrysler's. We tested the full range of fuels and settled on E85. It was refreshing to work with a Mike, who admitted when he made a mistake and was always looking for ways to make more power!

Mike,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your help with Patrick’s 2010. In our business, knowledge, professionalism and flexibility are all required to produce great results. You delivered in all categories. Having you remotely tune my Dodge applications has allowed me re focus on race car construction and GM and Ford tuning and power development. I have enjoyed working with you on several projects and look forward to future endeavors.

Thanks Again,

Currently the fastest “Stock” 5.7 long block Power Adder (S/C) in the country!

In the summer of 2010 Mike helped me out with my MagnaCharger tune on my 2010 5.7 Challenger. Before having Mike tune the car I was running 12.6X-12.7X with the stock Maggie tune. I started working with Mike data logging my runs. He sent a couple of tunes to try out. The MagnaChargers were just released, so no custom tunes were available. Mike met me at the track and on my first pass I got a 12.0X, A couple of tweaks from Mike got me into 11.9X and later that same day I ran a 11.79 @ 114.59 with a 60' of 1.67.There was still more power to make in the tune, but ran out of good track weather. In 2011 I took my Challenger to OST to have Mike tune it on his dyno. The power gains were impressive. With my completely stock 5.7 VVT long block, a Maggie and Mike’s tuning I was able to run an 11.27 @ 122 my first time out with the new tune. I am also very pleased with the way it runs on the street. - Brad Kirkman

Thanks Mike - 11.69 1/4 mile run from your first revision tune !!!!
Can't ask for more than that. Except that it is going to be even better when I get you some good logs. If any of you guys are looking for a tuner that will help you above and beyond then Mike is the guy. I don't vouch for people often but he does know this software inside and out. Thanks Mike!!! And this was coasting thru the finish because I ran out of gas.

I would like to take a minute and thank Mike Doban from OST Dyno for the custom tuning he offers. It has enabled me to expand my business to be able to build and now "remote" tune Dodge and Chrysler vehicles. I only offer Ford and GM tuning here at my shop, but now I am able to offer Mopar tuning thanks to Mike. Mike has tuned a few high horsepower Mopars for me to date and they have all been exceptional! I was recently at the racetrack with a customer that Mike did the tune for and the vehicle amazed us. It was an SRT8 Jeep with a Vortech kit, LT headers, and a custom Inertia cam and it ran an 11.80 on the very first hit, then backed it up with an 11.60!!! And this was the very first time this customer had ever driven a vehicle down the 1320! Mike has also been a great friend and someone I can rely on for his opinion for different tuning and HP making decisions. Thanks buddy.

Patrick O'Dohery - Birmingham, AL - 2010 5.7 with Kenne Bell
Dear Mike and OST-Dyno:
First, thank you so much for being available to remotely tune my 2010 Dodge 5.7L Hemi R/T Classic Automatic trans Challenger. I must say you did an outstanding job with my car so far. Let me back up some, I decided to buy the R/T version back in Sept of 2009 with the intention of modding it out quickly. Longtube headers, Corsa Extreme exhaust, and I was bound determined to put a Kenne Bell (2.8L) S/C on it. Of course, at the time, they did not have a kit for the 5.7L. However, I was confident the local speed shop here in Birmingham could handle the install even with all the custom work that had to be done. Tuning the thing has been the real experience in life. Many people said they could tune it—many equally failed. Lots of reasons behind this, Diablosport at the time did not really support this engine size, and the 2010 5.7L auto was different enough from the 09 and earlier version that it was to say the least frustrating. I had wanted to do a forged block since early this year but we all were apprehensive to mod it out more having been thru tuning hell previously. My local guys had worked with you on a few other cars and were impressed enough that one day in July they told me I could forge the engine now and turn the boost up because they knew a guy who could tune it.
Coming from them that was quite the recommendation. So we got the forged block in, did the build and while we ran into delays along the way, you were always there, ready and accommodating to all of our issues. Your input to the build was invaluable to both me (the owner) and to my local install guys as well. I have to say I don’t think we could have gotten to where we are without you. As you know we are not done yet –injectors and fuel lines etc , etc but I did want to send you an open letter of recommendation. I also want to confirm you are my exclusive tuning guy from this day forward! I applaud you on your professionalism and your abilities as well. I love the monster torque this little 5.7L makes now!

Mike, as good as the dyno numbers turned out (507hp and 487ftlbs) the real numbers are track numbers. I made it up to PRP late yesterday but only had time for two runs. My best was an 11.69 @ 117.1 mph. This is full weight on street tires with the subwoofer still in the back. There were two 426 LX cars that had 10-12k builds under their hoods in lighter cars that couldn't match my times. I am now number 18 on DragTimes.com for the SRT8 Jeeps and everyone above me has a built tranny, torque convertor or other mods. I'm sure with just a bit more practice on the starting line I can get close to an 11.49 just the way the car sits. At that point I’ll get tossed anyway till I get a roll cage. Any way I think you outdid yourself and I'm really stoked with the way things turned out. I wanted to thank you again. Great work! The forum guys keep asking me how you tuned a Vortech torque curve to look like a turbo torque curve. This thing makes sick power on 6 1/2 lbs of boost!! I am getting a lot of hits on the forum thread so don't be surprised if the phone starts ringing. Lol. I've already given three local guys your web address. As an unexpected but added bonus, even with the bigger cam, the car drives better than stock on the street and I picked up 3.5 miles per gallon on the highway. I'm super pleased with the outcome especially considering that I drive this car almost every day.

Any way
You are the man!
Thanks again Mike

Completely stock SRT8 300c (including original tires). 12.9 @ 110

I have a 2006 SRT8 300 that I purchased new. The car was garage kept for years and by 2009 it only had 2500 miles on it. I decided that if I wasn't going to drive it I may as well race it. I took it to the track and the best it did was an ET 13.54 at 103 miles per hour. I spoke with Mike at OST and decided to get baselines on since it was stone stock and had never been touched. We put it on the dyno and did numerous pulls on it and stock it was putting out between 329 hp. At that point we decided to do a few small things to it, added an LMI cold air intake and a trinity tuner. We also put a set of Dynamic Grounding Cables on the battery & engine and this change alone was good for 5 hp on my car. We also added a 180 degree thermostat on it. By the time we were done, Mike wrote a custom tune for the car putting about 369 hp! The next time I took it to the track it ran 13.20 and by end of day was running 12.97 and won the class. Since then, we raised shift points with trinity, the tires and exhaust are still stock, and the car ran a best of 12.91 at 110.70 mph. Mike really knows his way around. He's using old school technology on the new engines. It's all about efficiency and I've recommended him to many people. I'm delighted with the performance I'm getting. I highly recommend Mike and OST.
Thanks! - Jim Kramer

Hey Mike,

I just wanted to thank you for your services in tuning my vehicle. I feel you have taken the time to fully answer all & any questions along the way. Your very quick to respond to emails & make any tune adjustments I requested, along with a great one time price to boot. I truly appreciate your services & and the great ET's it has provided for me at the track.

Thanks Much,

WOW! What else can I say about OST Dyno and Mike Doban other than that.

This group is what a builder that thinks out of the box like me needs in a dyno shop. Whether I was building my 1938 Chevy Triple Turbo Cummins , the 1963 Twin Turbo Pontiac Lemans , or the 32 Ford Quad Turbo Roadster Pickup OST Dyno was there to bring these creations to they’re maximum potential.

This shop speaks, eats, sleeps and drinks horsepower. They have the same passion about your car as you do. They will not feed you the old dyno numbers game to impress you.

If you’re serious about performance, go nowhere else!

OST Dyno has been a true blessing to my hot rod habit!
Mike and Micah are true professionals that take great care not to hurt my equipment when dynoing my cars. Their methodical approach to tuning gives me confidence that I will leave their shop with a safe tune that makes great power.
After making any significant changes to my power train, I always go back for more dyno time. It's great fun to go to the track and lay down a big number right out of the trailer because the tune is spot on. Mike’s tech expertise with computers and his ability to solve computer to ecu communication issues make him a valuable resource to the hot rodding community.

I would highly recommend Mike at Outlaw Street Tuners for any tuning development.
I contacted Mike about his ability to do a remote tune, since I live in Ohio and he is located in Pennsylvania. I was able to get my car on a dyno and e-mail him my data log files. Mike immediately updated the tune and sent it back to me in order to make another run. We did this 4 times, to get the car just right and I was thoroughly impressed with the results. I plan to have Mike do the same thing once I have my supercharger installed. – Bill Brown

I just started working with Mike, and he already got my car up and running.....on the first try no less! I have a 71 runner' with a 6.1, but it is using a 5.7 truck PCM. Mike walked me through the data logging, and he sent me back a tune that had me driving!
