    TP vs IA E-tune

    Hey guys, as the title says I am looking for a comparison of the two tunes. I know that the IA tune is going to be better and for the price it had better be. However my tax refund is coming to an end and I am just looking for something a little more precise than what I currently have. All I am planning on doing for power is K&N typhoon, invidia catless DP and maybe a Grimmspeed coated UP. (BTW their DP looks HOT! little to costly though) Any way back to the point does anyone have experience with both these tunes? What difference did you see between them and was it worth it for the extra $100? I trust that both tunes are safe so I am not worried about any safety concerns I am just looking to get something worth while and a little better than the COBB OTS

    You live in the northeast, which has the greatest concentration of good tuners in the country. Get a tune done in-person.

    I was under the impression that a pro tune would be closer to $400

    $400-600. But it's worth it. Without a WideBandO2 sensor, there's only so much the tuner can do for you on an e-tune.

    This. You won't know if something is wrong until it blows up. Engines are way more expensive than a dyno tune, in my opinion. I know the majority of them won't blow up, but its pretty easy to have something go wrong and run into issues. Look at all the posts that say "I have knock on a stage 2 Cobb tune"... and most of them (if they are running the correct map for their setup) turn out to be a mechanical issue that a wb02 would pick up quickly.

    My $0.02.
