    Looking for Tuner/AWD dyno in PA/MD area

    As my profile says, I'm in Waynesboro, PA. I'm looking for a tuner in either Pennsylvania, or somewhere in middle or nothern Maryland who can do AWD tuning with the UTEC.
    Can anyone recommend or point me to a shop in that area?

    Long Island is not Maryland or Penn.


    Cheesybacon: If you feel like venturing a little farther, Turbo Trix is in New Jersey, and I believe TurboXS is in either Maryland or Virginia.

    Agile auto in Timonium has an awd dyno, etc. The only time I was there it was for an EVO tuning meet (Dynoflash). I've never personally had any work done by them so I can't vouch for skills but plenty of folks seem to go there.

    Holy cow! TurboXS is based out of Gaithersburg, Maryland? I never knew that.
    I can't think of better people to tune the car than the people who made the EMS. I hope they aren't too expensive.

    bad news....they're fricking ridiculously expensive! 50 buck setup fee, then 200/hr. You're usually not out of there for at least 2 hours, so that's $450 just for a tune....I guess it's worth it if they do a good job, but if there's anything you're not happy about, then you're going to be mighty pissed. Maybe give them a call and see what they say.

    If you're going to get it done, you might as well get it done right. Go to TXS, but make sure everything is in TOP SHAPE for the tune, so they aren't fixing stuff on your car before they get it on the dyno.

    Yikes! 200 beans an hour? For that kind of money I hope it's gonna make a difference. Think it's worth it going from a Cobb 2.5 setup?

    Ehh, I dont know. Try to get a road tune. It would be WAY less expensive and there aren't any drastic needs for a tune, considering your adding on to a staged (and previously dynoed) package. Precision Tuning does road tunes, I believe.

    Exactly. Call Nathan or Jermaine. Do it right the first time. I wasn't so fortunate.
