i would get that thing to a tuner asap. Not knowing what the tunes are exactly for, you'll never fully get it figured out. Especially it having had nitrous on it.

The tunes are all labeled in the sct tuner. The car just never had a "real" 91 octane tune. I will be getting re tuned though because driving 45 minutes just to get gas is getting very old. Anyone know of a good tuner around that knows these cars?

Is it basic bolt on other than the injectors? If so, Lund can do it remotely via email.

LSX Killer and Justune can do it on dyno.

But a remote tune would be cheaper and as effective.

Yes just bolt ons. Only thing im worried about with a mail tune is driveability with the stall.

Lsxkilr already tuned it. As you can see, it hasnt quite worked out. And Justune will not be getting any business from me. Really limits my options here.

well Bob Manks in Saint Louis is quite good.

I would call Lund just to see though, and I know for a fact AED will remote tune a stalled auto.

Get in touch with Lund Racing. Stalled auto won't be a problem.

So why you say Justune wont be getting any of your business? Bad experience or just personal reasons? Just asking cuz he tuned my car and I thought the dude was super cool not to mention he is a damn good tuner according to some of the best engine builders/ race car builders in the area. Tydo race cars is who recommended him to me. Anyways, I just met Justin, like I said, but he came highly recommended and I'm happy with the results on my 2jz. If theres something I should know, I would like to hear it though cuz like I said I just met the guy. I couldnt find anything negative about him on the web either.

Went up there last year with my buddy to get his ss tuned. Justin showed up about an hour late, and just seemed bothered to be there. Maybe he was having a bad day or something. Plus my friend was not happy with the way his car ran after the tune. Thats enough to scare me away.

Definitely would tune my own stuff before I take my car back to Justune. My tune was really sloppy and the car ran terrible. Also thought the dude was a real jerk and really unprofessional. Car ran better on a remote tune than it did on that dyno tune.
