Tuner?

I have an intake and exhaust installed on my 06 zx3 and plan to get the obx header soon. What tuner and from who will best suit my needs. I will also in the real short future be getting stage 2 crane cams. Well I call to ask them to program the tuner what should be asked for?
Thanks Austin

clicky

I am going to get Tom's tune cause he gives free updates as long as you stay N/A. And he is probably has the most knowledge of the focus out of anyone.

No you can get a remote tune which means you PM him or call and you tell him everything you have done to your car, and your pcu code and he will make you a custom tune, load it to the flasher and then he will ship it out to you for you to install onto your car's pcu. You can drive out to him. I would if I lived as clost to him as you do. It would be worth it. And for the price you will have to double check but I think it is around $450??? not too sure.

His main car is a duratec. And he built a turbo kit for the duratec. So I believe he know just as much if not more.
