What mods do you have that warrant a dyno tune?

There are no mods that "warrant" a dyno tune. Either your methodology is get dyno tuned or remote tuning. It is always better to get a good dyno tune anyway.

Absolutely incorrect. The best way to tune today is to data log on the street in real world conditions. Not on a dyno. Unless you have a combo that requires remote tuning but that's very rare.

Yes, but that does not help the OP does it?

Street tuning is not viable for a non track person. It's not exactly legal either. And tuning it at the drag strip is a hassle unless thats what you want it for. Dyno tunes are just fine.

Spoken by someone with zero experience I see. I do my own tuning and I certainly don't own a dyno.

Dyno tunes are a waste of money.

Did you guys go off on a tangent or is it me. I don't think OP was looking for recommendations but rather a dyno tuner shop in his area.

Oh, you do "your own" excuse me everyone we have a badass over here...

I've got plenty of experience. There is nothing wrong with dyno tunes. Street tuning is not legal unless you have a ton of private road/ track to tune on. Dyno tunes are not a waste of money what so ever. In fact OP will get good performance dyno tuning without spending an arm and a leg. To street tune he'd have to have the software and tuning knowledge to get it done.

OP:

Your x4 tuner is what you will use to load a given tune to your car. Find a good shop and get the car safely dyno tuned and the shop's tuner will load the tune on your x4.

Good thinking. You don't need it in your situation. Take it from someone with a little experience here, not someone that doesn't even run a tune.

Interesting idea. I run a tune, shows how little you know?

LOL!

Grabber Blue is the resident guru. OP is fat KungFu Panda, and he's the grumpy old mouse.

When you come in & ask him what color the sky is he responds with.

"It is not a color but an interpretation of what light energy refracting from the gases in the air to your retinas then interpreted by your brain. But what if we're all just brains in vat, grasshopper? "

He does know what he's talking about, but its often more complex than needed and/or over the heads of most.

Btw, I agreed with Grabber's opinion, get a good datalogged tune if you want to squeeze the most performance out of your car. That said, not everybody wants that. Some people are happy with just a decent canned tune that will eliminate the delayed throttle response and/or poor shifting mapping of the stock auto tune.

OP get a hold of Mike at straightline in new Lenox IL. They do awesome tunes on the dyno. That being said, I think your just as well off getting an sct x4 and getting a data loved tune from AED.
