Default Recommened Tuner in Houston

I am running out of time, ( track day in 9 days) and need to get my new turbo setup tuned. This is strictly a track car, not looking for every bit of HP just conservative tune. I have the Megasquirt pnp

Thks ahead of time - Kevin

Your money would be better spent on an English teacher instead of a "Tunner"

If you are not looking for every bit of power out of it then you should just street tune it. Make sure you hit the same load and rpm cells you would be hitting on the track. You just need a nice straight long stretch of road with no police.

18PSI, don't be a grammer/spelling **** and then forget the period at the end of your sentence.

If you want a shop to tune it, then take it over to Power Fab on 1960. The guys that run the place love Megasquirt and charge very reasonable prices. Talk to Jeremy or Bryan there and let them know I sent you over so they can be real sweet on you. (281) 477-0572

Not many roads around here that don't have police on them Ryan G.
I would love any help you can offer Gospeed81.

Well the White Rabbit is in the hands of Jeremy at Powerfab, will let you guys know how she turns out. Had a rough time getting boost under control, according to hallman's instructions on the ES manual controller adjusting in increases boost - on a Tial MVR gate in was less. Oh well it works. Thks again for the info guys, will get the courage up to post pics. of the under hood and new under bumper radiator ducting soon.
