View Full Version : Can anyone recommend a shop for a dyno tune?

I need to get a dyno-tune on my car as it's finally pretty much setup as i want it. I'm extremely limited in San Antonio so i'd like to find descent shops in Houston that you guys can recommend. I'd prefer a shop specializing in Mustangs and not everyday run of the mill cars. Pricing and location information would be helpful too.

You need to find out when one of the main tuners from SCT will be coming to town, they are the best Ford tuners, period. :thumbsup: Just ask :edmond: , he will tell you. They usually tour with the fun ford weekends event to every city.

Do you have a FMU ( I don't remember)? SCT will not tune with a FMU, correct? To get the most out of your combo, it would be best to have your MAF meter caled to the larger injectors ( 36 or 42's) & get rid of the FMU if you have not already done so. You will need a chip, no flashing of your computer since you have a 95.
Slaters & Houston Performance both tune & do good work.
Not sure on the price. Probly around $400, give or take a $100 or so.
Let us know if you come to town, like to stop by & watch.

Yes, David, let us know. We can get the gang together somewhere around either place for food before you head out!

Well i need a good shop recommendation before i head out. I don't have the FMU..never did. During install of the S/C i added the 42# injectors, 80mm Pro-M N/A meter,AFM B-21 blower cam and an AFM powerpipe. I have a base TwEECer and prefer not to go with a chip as most shops prefer that.

I'm looking for a good tuner that knows how to dial in a car for maximum efficiency, not maximum HP. My car is my daily driver and i only use it to go to work and pick up my daughter Darienne. It's really cool saying that i only use it for those purposes with about 425+ to the wheels on tap if ever needed.:cool: But seriously, i just need a shop recommendation so that i can call them and talk to the tuner. I'm hoping some of you have used a shop and have confidence in a few people that i may consider going with. When, and this WILL happen, i'll be sure and let you all know.:thumbsup:

David, I didn't remember if you had a FMU or not. I don't know of a shop that is knowedgable about the tweecer, possible Ben, I'll find out. I do know Slaters does not have knowage about the tweecer, not sure about HP. You'll probly have to rent the dyno for hourly charge & tune from there.
How do you like the tweecer? I've read up on it & it seems like it has a steep learning curve. Does seem to have a lot of tunign possiblities if someone know how to midify it to the correct parameters.
