no but it is pretty well maximized for an N/A car from the factory. several thousand dollars worth of aftermarket parts only result in 10-15hp improvements which to most people isn't worth the money

False. with enough data you certainly can. in fact its probably better because you're tuning based on actual data rather than "oh that pull felt harder than the last one"
obviously Dyno tuning is going to be the best for maximizing the tune. but I dont see any examples of street tuned cars consistently making more power than email tuned cars.

epic morning thus far battling some troll via text who is all pissed because I told him $75 for cats from the M3 because he was in flint and could pick them up.

a week of dicking around with him and he decides he wants me to ship them....to Flint. I say no sorry not doing that. (a week ago)

he texted me about 30 minutes ago asking if I ever got the quote and I told him sorry they sold yesterday for $200.

and he's been going off on a rant about how people will do anything for money.
