    they are in DE - but I hear the tuner is a beast - once I get some more upgrades done - I'll be heading there

    And one more to the list.


    IAG is flying Jorge from P&L Tuning in once a month and he's tuning out of a shop in Baltimore. It's a bit of a drive but Jorge is very well known.

    Well to add to the list, is anyone familiar with any shops in the SE PA area that does open source? I'm almost ready to go for stage 2, but I'd rather just go with a Tatrix cable and get some open source tuning done, rather than drop $$ on an AP, just to turn around and spend more money to have someone tune it.

    i've already looked at the places listed here, can't seem to find any leads...

    All of the places listed - they are all well-known and highly regarded shops. Better to spend a little more $$ driving to/from getting a tune you can be confident with than save a few $$ and not (it's 2 and 4 hours to the twp nearest shops by me)

    hey - I'm not a know it all in anyway or a real tech guy - but from what I understand (thru the grapevine) - 2.5L (not sure about the 2.0L) - yes any intake cold air or short ram will throw the air to fuel ratio off & change the performance of the car
