Darn, 250 is cheaper than any decent hand held I've seen. For anything less a buddy discount is going the best you can do for right now. The idea of a hand held tuner is still relatively new, so they will eventually keep going down, but even if you find a deal, you'll still have to pay for the tunes.

Dang. Guess I'll have to wait haha. Another question. I was going to get a cai but i just got to thinking and it looks like the stock intake is getting air from the fenderwell anyways?

Most of the gains come from getting rid of the ribbed tubing and the filter being a little more breathable. I would say spend as little as you can on one because no matter how cheap or expensive the gains will be similair. Really comes down to looks.

Re: Do Cheap Tuners Exist?!

Yea but with cold airs that really only applies to fitment. I have an ebay intake, fit perfect. I have heard stories where people have gotten ones that do not fit but it could be inexperience with them just ordering a 99-04 kit when they have a 94-98.

Personally I wouldnt expect more than 5-7 horsepower if your lucky. And thats not to the wheels....it only gives better throttle response and makes a GREAT noise. Why spend more than you have to. If your planning on making a show car then yea, spring for the nice K&N kit or color-matched JLT intake. otherwise, get an ebay one and use the money you saved to pick up a set of pullies or maybe put it towards an exhaust/tuner.

Yep, as kirk said, you get what you pay for. The flash tuning hardware is only a tenth of the equation, the programming is what really matters, and that varies in quality from tuner to tuner.

I do have some used red chips and X1s that I can cut you a little bit of a break on, email me.
