Well, dropped my car off today to Lidio at Alternative Auto for him to dyno tune it. I should get it back later this week along with an Xcal 3. Hopefully all will go well and I can post some numbers and a dyno chart later this week !! I'll keep ya posted.

Well, got my car back today and it drives like a totally different car now. Idle and shifting are all fixed up and it feel and sounds great. My horsepower numbers were lower that I had hoped for but that's all right. Final numbers were 275.9 peak HP and 301.4 torque. I don't have a scanner so I might have to try taking a pic of the dyno chart to post here.

Later,
JP

yup, that's my car. Not sure if I was at the Milan meet but if you know what the date was I can look through my time slips and see. I've got the time slips from almost every pass my car has made. LOL Most likely I was there though if it was a TCCoA thing. Now that I have the tune I've gotta work on getting a new set of drag radials and hit the track again !!

Nice numbers Jon.......
Lidio is expensive I have already been through the motions 2 times!

One tune when I was N/A and the second with the blower.
Lidio's new facility is top notch!

Its expensive but what good is all those performance parts if they are not in tune?? Thier is always those little gremlins that nag you, Ya the car runs but now it really runs and is drivable with a little of his magic.

I know I do not need to preach his work to you or Jurgen now that you guy's finally listened to me!!!:D

Man that pic stinger had from Milne is old... My bird was pretty much stock then.:eek:

Hey Steve if you get a chance can you pm me his info I'm getting sick and tired of the guy I was dealing with. Right now my transmission is goofed up a bit when I drive it in drive it feels like its in third. When I manually shift it it takes off like a bat outta hell!

Casper......the price I got was $550 for the dyno tuning with an SCT chip but I paid an extra $150 to get the Xcal 3 instead of just a chip. My total was $700 for the custom dyno tuning, the Xcal 3, and a custom "valet" tune that I wanted just in case I need to have someone work on my car.........that way they can't beat on it or over rev it. LOL

Dennis.......I don't know the number off hand to his new shop but you can get the info you need from their web site. www.alternativeauto.com
