I have one from eric mineheart (torqued performance), he was really cool about replying back to revise things, even worked with me through boost leak issues. His responses were pretty quick too. I think we had about 4 or 5 revisions throughout the process.

He had me change my wastegate spring midway through so we had to start all over. We did idle logs first then normal driving no boost then started doing wot logs. Yes 3rd gear.

14 revisions isn't as bad as it sounds. If you took your car to a shop on a dyno and had it tuned they could easily do 14 revisions worth in a couple of hours. And that's a small price to pay to have your car running at optimal performance, correctly. Good things come to those that wait.

I used Ron. Mike is hard to get cause he's so busy. They both are really busy these days. Ron just got a dyno. They both are great though.

Yeah Ron actually posted on this form once then got pissed because it wasn't as busy as nabisco or some of the other sites.

Like I said, not all were wot pulls and we changed wastegate springs halfway through. 14 pulls isn't bad. Id rather do 100 pulls for a tuner who cares about getting it perfect than 5 for one who just gets close enough.

no id have to drive to Conn. im too lazy to drive there but it seams that an etune is a lot of work. i might just go with an ots cobb stage 2 tune but im not sure as to how reliable those tunes are yet, especially with a car as old as mine.
