do you have your own tuner? I may be able to help you out. I've done quite a few tunes with sc's and mustangs. I live just north of boston.

We sure do. We have tuned SuperCoupes in the past and we are still available to tune them.


I called on the phone after this email to talk to this guy more about it. I'm pretty sure I didn't here wrong :D

Unless they have changed their ways I talked to him last year and he said that they will not tune OBD-1 cars anymore. Hell they won't even touch my 95 mustang and thats primerly a mustang shop. I asked him this way back when I had my 94sc. Chris is a helleva tuner from what I've heard. If you want to read up on xxtuning and peoples experiences go on www.lmmc-ct.com/forums
If I remember correctly Chris recommended some corvette place in manchester for tuning my ODB-1 car. It seems like from what you wrote in the email that he shouldn't have misunderstood you but I have read several times that they have stopped tuning ODB-1 cars for atleast a year now.

I'd say $500 give or take a few bucks if you need to buy a chip from them if you already have a chip and he just needs to reburn it for your car it should be much cheaper.

what would be a good chip to get? would they sell it there or is that something i have to pick up on the internet?

I think Dave D would be the guy to get the chip from. But ya going with what dan said, i have heard nothing but great things about this guy from people on this forum. I'm not sure on prices and what not, your best bet would be to email chris from xxtuning.

You are right Chris will tune OBD-1 I just sent him a message. I guess XXtuning will not tune OBD1 but Chris can do it on the side for ya, which is awesome news considering he knows how to tune cars.
