1) Drive to York, specifically CBRD
2) Hand Mark your keys and a few hundred bucks and say "please tune my car"

Thin line on "pro" vs. "others"

Almost any schmuck can tune a car.... just takes a little learning and homework/research....

To each their own.

Valid point, but it takes A LOT of homework/research in order to do it right. Plus you have to accept the fact you could blow your car up.

If you want to learn to do it yourself, get a laptop, a TacTrix cable, a wideband O2 sensor, and download enginuity (sp?). Then contact one of the many "e-tuners" with datalogs and work out a good tune with them. Using that as a starting point, start trying to adjust things yourself. Pay careful attention to the things that were changed in your e-tune.

Correction, You may hand your keys to Mark.

But, you hand your money to Chad and Chad will be the one tuning your car at CBRD in York

Other wise good advise.
