    On Wednesday, I'm having my car tuned up at "Performace Dyno" up here in Concord, NH. Are there any special questions I should be asking or requesting? He will be buring a customer chip for the performance parts I have in my car. Are there any parameters I want to make sure he adjusts (injector spray width, computer timing). Please let me know as I want to make sure this is done right. Thanks

    Nothing really to ask as long is this is a reputable shop they do what needs to be done. The only question I would ask is they can tune the car for drivabilty and W.O.T. Some dyno shops tune just for W.O.T and drivabilty some what suffers (under 4k) when driving normally.

    So ask them to ake it driveable, while tweaking it for the most HP possible? Sounds like a double edged sword in way..

    You may sacrafice a little hp but if it's your DD then it'd be worth the lose not to have the car drive like crap until you went W.O.T. .02

    Not sure what brand it is....he said it will be custom burnt to what upgrades I have done to my car. Are there good and bad brands?

    Don't worry about it, you are in good hands. Pete knows his shit and I believe he can datalog for driveability and WOT. He uses SCT.

    WOW...so you know the place I am talking about? That's crazy....Pete did sound like he knew what he was talking about and he does them quite a bit from what I understand. Any other recommendations? Are you from the area?

    I heard a lot of mustangs go to tune up there as it has a very good rep for getting the job done right. I think NEBOC even has a dyno day there every year.

    Yeap. I see him up at the track a lot with both his cars (69 Mach, and 04 Cobra). He's tuned countless stangs, I'd feel very comfortable with my car in his hands. I'm in southern NH, Plaistow/Kingston area, but in RI (college) for the next few weeks to finish up the semester.
