I have no idea on their pricing. But a friend of mine has a s/c car that makes decent-big power that was tuned by them and I haven't heard him say anything negative about the tune

There's quite a few guys on my local Mustang site that swear by them. Everything I've heard about them was good.

Dave tuned both my cars. Excellent job. Actually the prices are excellent. For about 500 you come away with a chip and your car dynotuned. Their prices are on their website. Once you have their chip, if you come back you only pay dyno time for more tuning.
Also, if you are running large injectors (60# and maybe more), Dave designed a calibration with PMAS so you get small injector drivability at low air flow and large injector where you need it. It is like a 24/60 calibration. Similar to how ford does the lightning calibration for 19/42. For my 97, I ordered the MAF from PMAS, got the base tune shipped to me from Dave, installed it and drove up there for the real tune.
With the turbo notch, I just drove the car-but initially, I had a PMAS meter calibrated for 42s so it was fine anyway.

My buddies 96 cobra got dropped off on june 14th and is still there as I type this message. His car had quite a few minor issues and changes that needed addressed. Time management seems to be quite a struggle down there. His car should have been finished 2 months ago. Your car shouldn't be at a shop sitting untouched for weeks on end. He's laid back and has been really patient, but I would have snapped and taken the car from them weeks ago. All i know is that he got burnt for the entire summer of driving his car.

I have always simply made an appointment, gone there, got tuned and drove home. Dave works extremely efficiently.

I agree with you bob, I've not heard anything bad about his tuning at all, and to be honest the friends I have who have gone to him were very impressed with his tuning ability. Unfortunately for car stated above, it's been one thing after another.
