Now that wayne is gone what do we do?

I have been running the most recent tune I got from wayne (which was flashed to my car over a year ago) and have had pretty good results from it. The one thing that bothered me was that he said he could do the TC delete (completely off) on a tune for rla6 but we never got the no tc tunes to work (would flash and run correctly but tc was same as stock). I was considering doing the tc delete switch but was wondering if anyone has dyno'd tom's best tune against waynes best tune? I thought I had seen a dyno awhile back comparing the two and waynes was a few hp/tq shy of tom's?

I was just wondering if there is another tuner who is making better tunes for the svt now and if it would be worth a change (I still have the good old xcal1!) I was also hoping to eventually go with some boost so thought I could upgrade tuners/tune now and at least have that aspect of it knocked out for the future.

Any input is greatly appreciated!

I was a huge supporter of Wayne while he was here, but since he isnt doing this anymore, i decided to check Tom out. I have to say since i have made friends with him, he really knows what he is doing. Fun to be around also. I have seen him "doing his thing" with the dyno and tuning and its like watching a good piano player play. Its second nature to him probably because he has been at it for so long, so dont hesitate in the least to contact him.

i had a prob. with my xcal2 and had to jump threw hoops to get it looked at. i finally went to CFM and they helped me get it to SCT directly and then got shiped back from CFM. i might have to contact tom about his tune.

Im VERY happy with the tune I got from wayne, he just NEVER sent me any updates even after I spent the time data logging and sending it to him for fine tuning.

Im still looking for someone that does XCAL2 tunes that will take a look at my data-log and fine-tune it if need be.
