Tom has been more than patient with me and my trivial, get around the emission sniffer with an ORP issue. I appreciate all he has done for me and this community.
Plus, nothing like hearing my Borla/orp combo at WOT to let me know where it's all at. Tom FTW!!!

I agree with QueenJade. Nothing but great results from my FSW tune. It's been flawless.

I would have to definately go wth Tom all the way. From the beginning tom was very helpful in picking mods for my car and explaining any questions I had about tuning.

Tune: It was a very Performance oriented tune that was amazing for summer driving and those tire chirping shifts.
as winter has come along I have requested a "retune" with lower shift pressures and shift points. Other than toms tunes being made for a lower temperature thermostat I do not have any cons for his tune.

I don't know why but it won't let me vote. Ill post regardless. Toms tune all the way. My car has never ran better and the difference is noticed by everyone who has driven in my car. Improved idle quality, throttle response, gas mileage and it pulls much harder through the whole powerband. The lifetime updates are great and the customer service is top notch. On several occasions I have sent datalogs at 10pm and when I wake up at 5am the next morning my update is in my inbox. You can't beat that.

Tom FTW! It is now 810 pm and just got off the phone w/ Tom. He actually called me to see how everything was going after i finished my build. i didnt call him because I thought it was too late to bother him....I wonder how many other tuners would do that???
Thanks again,

For me, id probably have to say FSWERKS.

Simply because i live about 15 miles from their shop, and because they are a staple in the SoCal FoFo scene.

That, AND eventually i want their SVT turbo kit when its released...

Tom All Day!

Tom is the man! I received my tune in a short amount of time. He communicated with me for months prior to the tune, while I had many upgrade questions. He told me what to buy and what I didn't need in order to save some money. This was all before I purchased anything from him and he was still very helpful. Once I received the tune, it seriously tied all of my mods together and woke my car up. It feels a lot more responsive, no hanging revs., no dropping idles, and constant power throughout the revs. I needed one minor idle issue adjusted and he replied quickly with a new tune. TOM ALL DAY!

Tom's Tune vs FSWerks

FocusFanatics seems to say that Tom's Tune is best.
FocalJet says FSWerks is better.

FocalJet apparently doesn't like Tom; why is this?
