If you have a laptop, he can remote connect to it and do in-car datalogging with you. The tune is very beneficial, even on a stock SVT. The factory tune is surprisingly bad on these cars.
Maybe this is a stupid question but are there no available PC programs to tune the stock ECU with? I find it hard to believe that we have to buy a handheld turner when the same thing could be accomplished with a laptop and some software like MegaSquirt users do.

$400 bucks for a tuner and some modified fuel and ignition tables seems a bit steep.
