Thank you, what's his going rate? Does he have experience tuning modulars?I have my car tuned by Steve @ Powertrain Dynamics in Huntington Beach. He's been tuning my cars for 8 years now and has never done me wrong. He's very knowledgeable. You can see what my setup and power numbers are in my sig. For an appointment, you can e-mail him, [email protected]. Just make sure to put "Dyno Tune" in your subject line and tell him Juan sent you.
I believe it's $150 for a reflash and $125/hr for dyno time. Yes, he has tons of experience with modulars. My old car was an '03 Cobra. Steve gave me a nice safe tune with 475/460 to the wheels on the first-gen Apten/Steig port. I beat the crap out of the car on that tune and never had an issue.Thank you, what's his going rate?

danny at swanson performance is the only place to go.
im not trying to start a fight but steve at power train is a joke! i took him my twin turbo 92 twice. couldnt tune it, i left with it not running. then i made the mistake of taking him my 2007 turbo f150. after 6 months of trying, it ran like crap and stalled everytime i went past 50% throttle.
took my truck to danny and without even putting my truck on the dyno, wrote me a tune and told me to street test it. wot, no ping, great power, idled like stock. then he put it on the dyno and fine tuned it. i was at his shop for a total of 3 hours and it was running perfect! going back to danny next week for a retune with more boost.
here is a video of the truck 2007 turbo F150, 5psi - YouTube sounds clean!! something steve could never do.
long story shorty, i would never ever ever trust steve to tune a lawn mower let alone a car. i dont personally know a single person who has gotten a good tune from steve
i paid $175 for a tune and $150 an hour for dyno time with danny. the retune he said would just be the hourly rate since he is just modding the tune i already have
for the record, danny also tuned my mustang when it had heads, intake and stock cam and blower and made 403rwhp. very reliable and was my daily driver back then. never had an issue with his tune.
If Steve ever gets out of the business, Greg would be my new tuner. There are a few solid options in So Cal. I agree with what slosvo says about having someone local you can go back to if needed.try Greg over at RET.. I have yet to hear anyone complain about Greg.. I'm from the boat to have someone near you tune, that way you build a relation and easy to ask questions get other things done...
