SVT tune help, what device

Im not sure what device to get. Im from the gay world of hondas, so be easy lol.

anyway, I was to get it tuned for N/A right now, just get the best power out of it for daily driving.

I also later on want it to be able to be used to tune it for S/C maybe.

Anyone know any good links to read?

SCT or Diablo flash devices are your only choices.

My best SVT tune is with the Diablo Predator , I have a SVT and have been working on my custom SVT tune sence 2002 and it is the best out there in my opinion , gains are diff on diff SVT so I dont post gains , If I did like others and said 9 to 12 HP and your made 5 then you would be upset , I have some that didnt make but 4 and some that have seen 13 so its hard to say

You will gain other things from the tune tho , better idle , rear o2 off , better take off where the SVT is laggy taking off , and much much more

The performance tune on the Predator does not do much , I sell a custom tune that goes on the Predator
