Tuner Question

Hey guys, I have a 14 GT. Once the weather clears up, I'm going to throw all my bolt ons on. Deciding whether to go to the local mustang shop, Southern Stables, or Rev Auto in Md. Any experiences with either? Im not a fan of email tunes - Ill pay to have it done right. Thanks guys !

Email tunes with data logging is the best way to tune. Not on someones dyno. I don't tune mine on a dyno.

Because data logs give the tuner info on how your car acts on the street which could be different then it is strapped on a dyno

See below. The old way of tuning on a dyno was preferred but these cars have built in widebands from the factory making it easy to log on the street. But if you're close enough to Rev Auto then I would go see them.

Actually I disagree. I would say first doing a baseline tune on the dyno would be the best thing so you can see firsthand how the car is behaving. Subsequent data logs after the tune would be recommended to see if anything changes during street use. Most of the time nothing is wrong but sometimes adjustments can be made. I've seen dyno tune get 10hp+ over mail tunes many times on camaros and our mustangs too. Nothing will beat a good hands on performance dyno tune. It can take too many trial and errors when doing mail order in my opinion.

You're smart to take the car to a shop, the tuner will take the car out on the road, datalog it, and after adjustments, put it on the dyno.
