All the tune questions. Here's one answer...

....from one guy.

AM and Steeda - great companies. Won't take away from them because they both are awesome.

However, a member here got me hooked up with Beefcake racing who offers Lund Racing tunes.

1st. Beefcake got me the set up cheaper then even Lund Racing could. I have dealt with the owner since day one, and tonight I was putting on parts and called to leave a voice mail at 8pm. To my surprise, he picked up. I could hear kids in the background. The guy was taking calls at the dinner table and answered my questions right there. That's just not something you see all the time. It deserves recognition.

2nd. Lund Tune - holy crap. I've driven the BAMA tune on a 2012 and its a nasty in its own right.
However, this tune from Lund was night and day (in my own personal experience). The car is absolutely freaking insane. Like no traction, no throttle delay, actually makes me giggle, insane.

Either way - not sure if this is against the rules to post (it said tech and talk) and I know AM and Steeda have a foot hold here and rightfully so. Great companies that have taken many of my hard earned dollars. However I'm the type of guy that when I see something that is above and beyond I want to say it out loud and let it be judged.

I have had the same experience with Terry @ Team Beefcake Racing. He has taken my call on a Sunday when we were doing the install. He also could have EASILY oversold me on items that I thought I needed. Instead, he took money from his own pocket by informing me that with my goals, certain upgrades that I was wanting were not necessary.
As far as Lund Racing Tunes, Jon Lund II tuned this car. The entire tuning experience with Lund Racing is how it should be done IMHO. Unbelievably responsive and you are part of the tuning process and get to see and feel every revision along the way. I still buy parts from AM and in fact got a great deal just yesterday on some parts from them. When it comes to forced induction and tuning though, you will not find better places than TeamBeefcakeRacing.com and Lund Racing. Beyond excellent customer service and performance results that speak for themselves.

I never order off sites. I call direct. Just advice.

And it was free for me as well. It's a novelty tune.

I also ordered my SCT and some exhaust from him.

All three who write tunes for Lund Racing are more than capable. I know where you're going with this but I would urge you to let it go because we both know you don't have a leg to stand on.


For the rest of the guys that read this thread I've been saying it for a long time now. Don't skimp on the tune. Just because brand A or brand B offer free tunes for life or have a #8 cylinder warranty does not make a quality tune. And just because you may not have a problem with brand A or B tune doesn't mean there aren't better tuners out there.

You say email tune.
You'll have to excuse me as I'm not educated in all the different car lingo. I'm a self proclaimed n00b going through a midlife crisis early. Lol

I ordered everything on a Friday. Exhaust shipped same day. Terry walked me through what he needed off my car for tuner Monday. He shipped the tuner with tunes loaded Tuesday. Holiday and then I received them yesterday. The delay was partly my fault as I didn't have the car at work with me when I ordered. However Terry emailed me late Monday night that he got the tuner ready and done and would ship tuesday morning.

Was more then pleased - didn't seem to take long especially over a holiday.

when I get ready to get a tune this spring, I'll definitely consider lund , he seems to impress his customers. One question I have though, is what makes his better than some of the others? I believe they all advertise very similar hp and tq gains, is it the delivery or driveability of those gains?

thanks
Rob

Never said they weren't.
And what bothered you about my question to the OP ?
The Op was raving about his tune, I just wondered if he knew who wrote it. Maybe there are people who think that all " Lund " tunes are written by Jon Lund.
I agree with your " Don't skimp on the tune " statement.
For a person who can't get to a tuner, a remote tuning session is the best they'll ever get...........................but it isn't the best tune available.

Don't be accurate for my sake, I know all " Lund " tunes aren't done by Jon Lund.

Hope everyone know I didn't mean this to be a argument. It's my experience and review from a guy who know nothing about tuning. The hope was to help others make the best choice for them self.

Don't worry about that 20145pointOH any time you make ANY post about a tuner will open the opinions and comments up. It is like if someone said they LIKE their camaro on a Mustang forum
It was a very good review and appreciated by many on the forum

Thanks Slayer

Lund Jr will be doing my datalog and did my revision for my CAI. All I gotta do now is install the CAI and then data log and send it to him.

Lol and I have no idea how to do data log yet so this will be a learning process.

Once you have your SCT with the loaded tune, he can/will e-mail you a revised tune which you then load onto your SCT. If you're not too computer savvy, the guys at SCT can remotely take control of your computer and do it for you.
