    You can go open source with a dyno tune, or get dyno tuned with the AP if your friend supports Cobb tuning software. You'll see greater benefits with a custom tune, open source, or AP. It come down to if you see yourself using the AP for its other functionality.

    FWIW I'm dyno tuned on my Cobb AP. The latest firmware update has made it more useful to me, but after I decided I was getting dyno tuned I asked myself should I really have spent $600 on an AP? I'm generally happy with it now. It can log (and much better parameters now available with the new firmware), you can view live engine data, you can clear codes, reflash easily, etc...

    Each is just a different route to the same place.

    Protune/dyno tune or find a place that does the custom tunes with the ap. It is better for the health of your car in general.

    Skip the uppipe.

    What's the caliber of tuner that would be working on your car @ your buddys shop?

    If you're already out of warranty year/miles then go pro-tune. You have no reason to uninstall an AP tune at that point and you'll get a better tune out of it for less money.

    If you have an AP and go to a tuner that uses the AP.. that IS a "protune"

    and given that information you can still unmarry the "protuned" AP and go back to factory if need be.
