    Find a proven tuner...nine times out of ten they are cheaper and a LOT less time consuming.

    Plus with countless hours of dyno time, if your car has a hiccup, they know right where to go to take it out and acquire the stock driveability that you're after.

    Isn’t that contradicting? How is it cheaper with countless hours of dyno time? or even less time consuming?

    I'll agree that there is a learning curve with using whatever software and understanding all the parameters, but in essence, you are paying yourself for your own time. Yes, you may need some time on the dyno (or at the track) to verify that you have WOT dialed in, but, in the long run I think you definately come out ahead with self tuning.

    I agree with buying Moates QH and doing it yourself- even a 50 year old non-computer savvy guy like me can do it....
