Mase has a reputation amongst the Honda tuning community for making magic happen with kseries engines.

When I heard that he was over in the UK tuning at Surrey Rolling Road I decided to tag along and see what all the fuss was about. I met up with Stoo from the itr-dc5 owners club. Stoo has recently supercharged his DC5 and was getting Mase to remap the ecu to suit the new modifications.
