Re: whats the best tuner

All tuners pretty much do the same thing, I have the sct xcal3 and it comes with free tunes for life, you just email the company a list of your mods and then they send you a pretty accurate tune based on those mods. This way, every time you do a performance upgrade, you can get a new free tune.

Re: whats the best tuner

Just make sure you get one that you can do custom tunes. Don't get one that is pre loaded with tunes. VMP Tuning does a really good job, you send in what you want, and they provide. I think you get 3 tunes.

A SCTchip will cost 269.00 and comes with 4 tunes check out American Muscle Once you have the chip or tuner make a dyno appt to dial in the tune

Re: whats the best tuner

i would personally get a SCT XCal III for my car (hand held) as it gives a ton of crap you can do and chips are a pain to install... and leave traces that the dealer can see where it had a chip

try contacting VMP tuning and talk with Justin he is GREAT on v6s
