    Right now i just have a tune from ottperformance and i want something that is better then that. Im trying to think of what good tunes are out there but i really have no clue. Could you guys give me a hand/ideas on a really good tune for this coming summer? If you could that would be greatly appreciated!

    I need to get mine tuned now that I have headers and wide open air flow, We have one shop here that does it, I think.
    How much does it usually cost to get the car tuned, and run on a dyno.

    I know nothing about the tuning programs for cars, but have done my pc5 for my raptor. It was a p.i.t.a. It is very close to a car setup, i imagine, since it adjusts every 500rpm with every 5% throttle, except the first 20 which was every 2.5%. I had to rig the handheld afr up to it while i Put a load on the engine. Talk about seat of the pants dyno huh? Lol

    If you can adjust otf with a laptop, and an afr gauge it should be pretty simple. Not immediate, but easy once you get moving. Just guess rich to be safe. But again idk how the program actually works.
