Short term tune needed

I'm looking for a tune for a short period of time. Wondering what company tunes for the procharger. I will be getting a dyno tune when spots open up in the shop and I get my drive shaft. I see mpt does but for $600 for a few months no thanks. I seen steeda or bama is reasonable but I'm not 100% sure they do tune for my needs. Any help would be appreciated.

Procharger offers a tune that will get you to the dyno shop. You really shouldn't go installing a supercharger if you don't have the ability to get it tuned correctly right away.

1. Don't install the blower until you can get a proper tune.
2. If the shop you are planning on getting the tune from, can't send you a base tune to drive to the shop. Find another shop simple

Well i'm installing this coming up weekend regardless as I don't always have the time. It's not a daily driver so it can sit.

I am paying the money if you seen I said I'm getting it dyno tuned. Just looking for someone to get me tune to start it. Not having the shop send a base tune tune as its going to go on a trailer to go there. I'm well aware of what needs to be done. Just asked about companies because I don't use them. Sorry I came off as an a** apparently. I'll just drive a different car till I get in the shop

Huge difference between dyno tune and running the car in limp mode until you have the cash or time for the proper tune. And it's been proven time and time again that it's all on the tune. Mpt can give u just as strong of a tune as the dyno guys will if not stronger. It will all depend on how well this guy knows these motors. Mpt works with the 3.7 everyday and has proven results ? Does your dyno shop have the same proven results on the 3.7. Doubtful because most shops focus on the 5.0

Hopefully your dyno tuner has experience with these engines. They are not that easy to tune, the high compression and TI-VCT being a few reasons, I wouldn't want Joe blow from down the street tuning it unless he has had success tuning them. Whereas MPT has had great success with the 3.7.

I think getting GrabberBlue1993 in this thread would be useful since he has a procharged 3.7, IF the OP will listen.

Short term tune needed

Does not matter what the platform is that he has. That does. It matter at this point. Could be a supercharged smart car.
It's the point of him trying to get a cheap route.

Like I said. Call the shop doing the tune. Get them to send you a base map to drive the car there. If they can't provide that. Find another shop.

You wont find one for several reasons:

1. No one is going to do charity work, plain and simple.
2. no one is going to write you only half a tune, because then they're liable for you driving on it.
3. If someone takes the time to write you a proper tune, they're going to charge you for it.

MPT is tuning my turbo car - takes some data logs back and forth but they are very thorough. Didn't even drive it for the first couple of data logs, just idling in the driveway for them. We are working our way up to WOT (need to get a data log on version 9 of the tune, taking it to 6,500 rpm this time) I can drive it on the tune while keeping it out of boost (a little easier with the turbo compared to a supercharger, just light acceleration) - it has gone into boost getting on the highway but I watch the boost gauge to keep it reasonable.

I've seen that, that's why I tread lightly.
