AV Tuning & Development was founded in 2004 by owner, Anthony Verma. Anthony grew up with a passion for anything automotive related and was always known for wanting to study how anything mechanical related operated. His evolved interest in mechanics, engines, and mathematics soon led him to further his studies at Clemson University for Mechanical Engineering in the late 90’s. Anthony studied such core courses such as Engineering Mechanics (structural mechanics-statics/dynamics/Strengths of Materials), Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, and also participated with the Formula SAE team where he helped out with the tuning of the Motec EMS system. By learning the dynamics of internal combustion engines through Clemson University, his interest, love, and respect for the world of high performance engines continued to grow rapidly.
Anthony soon applied his newly gained education to design, develop, build, and transform his own Honda into a 500whp power plant back in the 2000 (when turbo-charged Honda’s were very uncommon). It was not long until his tuning services were sought out by his peers and others which ended up consuming large amounts of his weekends while still concentrating on his collegiate education. After college, Anthony decided to go against the grain of getting a traditional boring “engineering job” and combine his high level of education with his love of high performance and open AV Tuning & Development .
