This is why I never bother to comment on anything, if it's $100 cheaper to do it half assed, that's how people will do it every time.

You have one of the best resources in the state, perhaps country 46 miles from you but I'm guessing you're sending it across the country to save $150 instead

There isn't anything magic in the tuning. You have timing and fuel. There are 3 or 4 tables that you actually do work in, the rest is turning stuff on or off and fixing idle/coast issues. If your running 12.8:1 ish and you have your timing set where you make maximum torque or hp(have to be on DYNO or at the track to do this btw), you're done. I don't care who's tuning it, it's no different than a carb in that respect @WOT. I bet your file comes back to you with car timing tables and a 15% increase in fuel during PE with the delay taken out. Shit isn't the magic everyone makes it out to be.
