I work with a guy who has had work done there and his brother recently had his cobra tuned there (supercharged 99), and they both have great things to say about lidio. He will do it right and wont skimp at all, but it will cost more than other shops for sure.

Man that sucks! It did rain really hard today though. That doesnt sound like a bad price for labor and a tune at all really. Thanks for the info and i look forward to hearing how you like it. Im sure the idle sounded great to begin with!

So lidio tuned it? He's in chesterfield not Detroit. I had my car tuned by him first day of spring after I did ported heads cams and nitrous. His first tune is 650 but any future tune is capped at 250. He is one of the best mustang tuners around but is a little conservative on numbers and more about making the most power reliably. I like how he goes on a road test with you after also. Will defiantly be seeing him again. Livernois only tunes never cars I've noticed. But they are the ones doing my Teksid Block prep, bore, decking etc.

Lidio has never done mail order or remote tunes. Have to go to the shop, and only Lidio does the tuning.

Alternative Auto did my car. 99 GT convertible five-speed. It's got every bolt on you can do, full-length headers with X-pipe into 3 chamber flow masters and 3.73 gear. Had the Crower Stage 2cams done with a 93 octane tune. 295rwhp and 305 foot pounds of torque at the rear wheels. Sounds great and runs much stronger! Click image for larger version
