The tuners around here use the sct tuner to save your tune for you and let you switch between that tune and stock so I would look into that and if they give you a tuner alongside their tune then do that...I went with the Bama tune cause I wanted to upgrade as I went and get the free tunes until I was done then I would get it dyno tuned....hope this makes sense

Make sure you are getting the whole price for the dyno tune. Every shop around central Florida is $200+ for the tuning plus another $200+ for the sct tuner. If your going to be steady modifying your ride you're probably better off getting the tuner with lifetime bama tunes. I have the lifetime tunes and Bama is great. You can't get a better "canned" tune.

Wrong. Plenty of other shops have been proven to be better then Bama with there canned tunes.

If getting a Dyno tune see how much they going to charge you to retune it when you do more mods first.

If anything look around for a unlocked SCT and buy it. You can get much cheaper and then they can load your dyno tune on it.

A dyno tune will always be better then canned tunes.

I dont' really get what you're saying with "lots of shops have better canned tunes." every shop here does a dyno tune. its not a canned tune like Bama. Which is what he is asking. "which is better for him to get". I don't mean this sarcasticly, I am asking an honest question here. What shops sell better canned tunes then bama? I would like to maybe try a tune from somewhere else.
