Default Local Tuning

Just picked up a Turbo Grand Prix GT ( 2002 ). It'* pretty fast but i am not sure if its tuned right or even tuned at all. Anyone local around Washington D.C. area or MD, NOVA that can help tune?

That'* a possibility. But, a word of caution. Your getting a canned tune. Just because it worked on one car 5 states away 50 degrees warmer than you, does not mean that tune will work "well" in your car. Unless you have the ability to scan/log live data, I say steer away from canned tunes.

If you read on the HPT forum, you will see people are ALWAYS scanning scanning scanning, then TUNE, more scanning, scanning etc.

I don't see why you need the pro version. If your looking at just using a wideband o2, Dan has a writeup here on how to use the regular version and still be able to use a wideband o2 sensor. Save the money. Get the one for $499. I did.

Look for a used one, they usually float around with a decent discount. I got my pro tuner with blackbox for $400 a couple years ago.
