I will be taking the '93 LX in to HPP Racing on the 4th for a dyne tune. Its a 331R block, 78/75 turbo running Holley EFI. This will be my 1st experience taking a car for a dyno tune. What type of things should I ask, or should I expect? The set up right now is running off a 14lb spring and 15 degree's of timing(conservative setup I have been told). Is also tuned for e85(so much fun finding stations around here with it). 610rwhp is what it dyno'd at with previous owner. For a part time street car( looks like will be driven to gym and some meets now and then) would I be ok having them squeeze a little more outta it?

Some tuners only tune for the most on the fine line between enjoyment and breaking something. I'd rather have a conservative tune for a street car...that might take you to the gym every once in a while. No need to push the limit and end up blowing something or wrecking.

A good tuner will not go for the most hp...but the best driveability for a street car. Thats what Steve has been doing for me.
