Could pay for a new tranny with the $

I've always wondered where this comes out cheaper than an AP. Used AP's can be had for $300-$400

Only reason to get a cable and software would be if you were going to do the tuning/dialing in yourself.

My 2¢
I paid $70 for a used cable. I have seen people advertise e-tunes between $100-200 and often times the higher range includes shipping you the cable for use. For the price range of $300+ that better include dyno time!

And custom tune > off the shelf tune

Well worth it in the end.

I agree on the ots being junk but eTunes aren't any better IMHO. The back and forth and having to buy a UEGO/Wideband has to be bought as well with an eTune... So don't 4get to throw in another $150-$200 for that.

Street or Dyno tunes or go home.

I don't have WB02....you can still tune within reason.

This may be apples vs. oranges, but the Evo IX had an OTS tune from WORKS and was dyno'd, then a custom e-tune applied, then re-dyno'd (same day) and it was ~50awhp bump. Most of the OTS tunes are "safe" since they are for the mass public, so timing is conservative and so are the AFR's. The little tweaks and bump in boost is sure to give you more ponies compared to a OTS tune.

I like to give to the community since it's how I got my start. As far as a new tranny, I will destroy it one day then just build a new one...
