    Ok, so I'm at the very end of the build with my Cobra. This thing has a balanced and blueprinted 333 stroker engine with Vortech VS3 supercharger. It has a Moates Quarterhorse chip in it. This thing is broken in and runs hard but is not perfect (which is where it needs to be). It is having idling issues and cold start issues. The tuner spent 4 months on this thing (part time) and is not getting it right. I will take this car ANYWHERE to get done correctly. I'm not looking to solve the problem on here, I'm looking to take it to someone to tune it perfectly.

    Please give me the best tuner you know of when it comes to our 1994-1995 cars. Thanks in advance.

    Does that make it harder to tune? Or is OBD1 only really involved with check engine lights and such....

    Yes and no. It's also how you modify the parameters.

    +1 Yup. That's where my car is going May 28th. With most tuners you hear bad and good. I've NEVER heard anything bad about Adam.

    Really appreciate everyone's help with this. Certainly doesn't have to be anyone local to me. I had forgotten that I purchased the Vortech from Bob Kurgan years ago, and he was great to work with and very responsive on email. I just want this darn thing figured out.

    I would personally recommend someone that you can meet in person/can be with the car over a remote tuner.

    Yeah, I've been speaking with Bob Kurgan on email today and he thinks it's a matter of letting him have the car and swapping the Moates chip out for an SCT chip. I'm excited to get it to him.

    I don't think you understand how pissed I am with the current tune. There is no where to go but up.

    Venom also has an extremely complicated engine setup compared to mine.

    Well his initial advice was switch off the Moates and onto an SCT chip and he will take care of tuning it. So that's what I'm going to do as long as it gets it running correctly.
