Some people prefer Syrius but the Premiums come with Bluetooth connectivity that allows you to play Pandora on your phone. That or just load a buncha tunes into the phone and then play it to your hearts content free of charge and free of disruption.

The best tunes in life are free!

For the third dozen times this week or so, Mike Rousch for autos but I can't vouch for it since I run a manual.

As for Lund Tuning, according to a thread started this week and just conveniently located three threads down from here, there's some interesting debate over how good it is versus dyno tune vs even how you can know for sure who at Lund actually tunes your car remotely.

I think there was another thread (or it was the same one) that was debating AED vs Lund that's still very much active.

Does anyone know where to get the cord that goes from the sct programmer to your laptop!??? I lost mine. Or if anyone has one and won't be using it I'd be interested in it.

Don't think roush makes quite the power of aed and Lund just real good with auto transmission calibration. I can vouch for aed and Lund both of there auto calibrations are good. Aed has a more stock feel during normal driving but shifts extremely quick when you get into it.

The only true way to tell who's best is to use the same car in the same place with the same equipment utilizing a comprehensive set of testing parameters across the board, field tested on the same track with unbiased testers.

So, who's done this?

It should just be the same as a printer. I'm pretty sure it's the same fitting. Should be able to get that anywhere.

I'll try both of mine at the track and post up in the spring. Gotta consider driving manners too especially on an auto, that could come down to preference though.

Ive been searching for who has the "best" tune for an Auto sense I bought my Mustang and still want to know. So when someone does a "test" like mentioned above we will only be giving our opinion. This is like asking who makes the best burger in town? as of right now. Get ready to laugh but Im happy with my Bama 91r tune. Once im done putting parts on my Mustang I will go to one of the "best" tuners and get a tune and see how it is. But for now I dont want to tune it then add parts and tune again etc etc. Bama = free tunes for life so im happy for now.

This thread is full of opinions, that's why I said the testing needs to be done with COMPREHENSIVE TESTING PARAMETERS and UNBIASED TESTERS, meaning, the testers done give a rip about who wins.

The best burger in town may not be what you like, so your statement is useless here.

I was agreeing with what you posted. And the best burger in town is an opinion just like the best tune as of right now. Untill they do as you said. TEST IT!!!!!!! until then >>>>

Best tune for shift points good smooth shifts great safe power gains and good driveability. Not to mention knowing what they're doing with good customer service.

You do realize that bama and Steeda aren't the only email tuners that offer free revisions right? Lund, AED, Mike Rousch, etc. all offer free revisions for new mods and for datalogs.

Best is subjective ... they are all good & all excel in different areas.

Steeda's tune is very safe, powerful & reliable ... you won't have any issues with our tunes.

Best Regards,

TJ
