What kind of tune?

So looking to get tune in next couple weeks. What is better getting a custom tune at a shop or investing in a Cobb tuner. And any place you would Suggest around ft Collins Co or Denver area and if so about how much does a custom tune cost

Pro tune for sure. OTS (off the shelf) maps run very conservative, but depends on what you want. E tunes work fine if you know how to log. CamTuning does great with e tunes

A custom tune for sure. An OTS tunes are overly conservative with a lot of room left on the table and limit what your setup can be. E-tuning should only really be considered an option if you're hours and hours away from the nearest tuner (and you're not). Tuning in person is always the way to go if you have a good shop.

I used a guy out of Denver named Eric. He flew out here and road tuned my car and a few others. He was cool to work with. Here is his website check him out.
