Looking to see who might be interested in a Florida tuning session. Post up if you think you would be interested this spring and we'll take it from there.

Dave... you know I'm there. Need new tune baddddddddddd!

If we get enough people who need a tune, you can stay at my place to save a few bucks. The dog won't mind someone sleeping with her on the floor:D

I will be up for it depending on when it is. I still need to finish my new blower/plenum and have no SC time right now. Looking like May or June for me.. Iíll keep watching for it.

A chip is $350 with tuning and if you already have a chip then tuning only is $200. Dyno time is additional and depends on the shop we work with. Tuning involves spending about 1-2 hours with the car datalogging and working with driveability conditions and then about another hour on the dyno, possibly less if things go well.

Expect this to take up to 2 days of your time, more or less because we normally do road tuning on one day and dyno tuning the next. This also gives you a chance to correct any minor mechanical issues before we put the car on the dyno.

Location is not determined, but last time we worked out of the Orlando area. I think the shop we used was reasonably priced.

Typically we would want 5 or more people committed to getting a tune before a session is scheduled. I don't know if we can meet the needs of the group in one tuning session but that's what this post is attempting to figure out.

does it increse HP

That all depends... it may or it may not. One thing is for sure your engine will be running much safer A/F wise.

Dave you know I'm committed (in more than one way). Lets try to get this done.

Thing is the reason a large portion of guys grenade thier motors is because they throw on a butt load of bolt ons and don't get a proper tune....Generally speaking, that can quite often spell disaster...I've seen it first hand..:D its well worth the money and damn generous of Dave to come all the way down here to cater to us specifically...(the preceding advertisement was brought to you by....)
