Boosted tune
 
I'm finally getting my build together. And I've narrowed it down to 2 choices.
Tom? Or McNews? Please help me decide.

I think you should use me LOL

550.00 for a full Custom tune

FREE updates as you add more mods , change turbos , change engine what ever FREE no one else offers this

Tuning with out having to pay for dyno time

Dont get me wrong I like and Respect Ray and Bobby and If I wasent tuning they would be the ONLY place I would send people for tuning

You cant go wrong either way , may way saves you $$$$

Tom

You really can't go wrong with Tom. I mean, free updates for life? Nobody does that.

You could always go with Tom and then go to McNews for some dyno time to do some fine tuning. I know Ray and Tom have worked together before.

I would say that Tom may save you money but you have to go through the data-logging process and remote tune which can be a little tricky to get the hang of. You need to be comfortable and familiar with the software which at times can be temperamental. Tom will go online and will work with you and help you through the process but you still need to bring some knowledge to the table. I would say it can be done in a weekend but it could take longer depending on how smoothly everything goes and how much time you have to devote to remote tuning.

Since you're in PA, McNews is a good choice. Tom himself said they are one of the best. While you might pay a little more they can put your car on a dyno, tune it, and have it back to you the same day. In my opinion being able to take in to the shop and have them take care of it is worth the trip and money.

With both tuners make sure you contact them in advance, my experience has been that they can be backed up anywhere from a week to three weeks before they might be able to schedule your car in.

If you have any more questions just ask. I have used both of these tuners. I have had positive and negative experiences with both.

I just talked to Ray today. He said a tune w/ an svt your looking @ 4 hours if everything goes smooth. And i have to drop my car off during the week for them to do it, which means i can't be there while its being done. I.E. WORK! which sucks, cuz i wanted to be there while its being done.
