Talking Good local tuner

Phil is a good local tuner who can fill your tuning needs.
Phil has tuned mine and even corrected a really bad transmission tune I received elsewhere.

Camaro Covette tuner in Tampa

Im the best price in town, and im sure Ive tuned the most Gen 5 Camaros in the Tampa area. They are 90 percent of my business.

The best part about Tampa Tuning is we are locally based and arent going anywhere.

I dont do the travel from town to town to tune cars and if you have a problem with your car you dont have to wait for me to return.

You cant find better pricing anywhere from the Tampa/Orlando area for tuning.

Phil

Phil is great to work with he got my tune dialed in the best it has ever been. Great idle and even better response at wot. When I installed my new setup he even helped me out via email on some adjustments to try to get the tune redialed in since I had my own HP tuners software. I too would highly recommend Phil at Tampa tuning.

Phil does a great job. Drove from Orlando to get with him because of his honest work and very fair pricing. He is not someone just tuning to turn a profit, he actually enjoys and has a passion for Corvettes and Camaros.

Now if I can just decide which cam to buy, I will have to stall my way back to the west coast of FL to get the next tune lol

Phil has tuned my car twice now and I am always impressed with the amount of time he takes to get everything perfect. My car runs great! Will be bringing it back to Phil as soon as the cam gets done, unless ZL1 purchase happens early!

another satisfied customer of phil's tuning.
at first i just wanted the tranny tune to get rid of the 4 cylinder drop.
i was so happy with that, i went back for the full power tune. as mentioned
above, the car was night and day. it's a thrill to drive now.
as far as mileage, it's been 16.1-19.7 mostly city.
you can tell phil really enjoys his work too.

I had my Beast unleashed in April of last year that was hidden within my GM's factory computer settings.
My 2 month old 2011 2SS/RS, with only 2000 miles on it was tuned by TampaTuning.
All I can say is AWESOME! The hole process was focused on getting my car dialed in to that perfct setting. I was educated through out the whole process. One thing I know is; that Phil knows his tuning. I searched around the Orlando area for about a month. I could not find the gut wrenching feeling that I was going to get a great job from my local tuning shops. When I contacted Phil from TampaTuning; I new with out a doubt that he was the one I wanted. He actually took the time to explain everything he was going to do to make the car run to it's true potential.
Phil I just want say thanks for the awesome tune and unleashing the Beast.
I highly recomend TAMPATUNING.COM

I live in the Cayman Islands and I found out about Phil and heard lots of good things so I gave him a try. He worked with me through out the tune and explaining stuff to me as we went along so I understood what he was doing. I did all data logging with my HP tuners and sent him my logged runs until we had the tune dialed it perfect. I could definitely feel the difference....idle and throttle response is awesome. Phil is the man!

Phil is one of the best in the game and really knows the A6 transmission. Where I think Phil really excels is in setting up the car to your individual driving style
Unlike many other who use "canned tunes" based on your mods.

I had Phil tune my car about a year ago. I drive this car everyday and my driveability and power delivery has been perfect. I drove a good distance for his services because of bad experiences with local tuners (past and present). I will use his services again when gears and a cam go in.

Thank you guys. You make it fun for me. Yes I enjoy it, but I really love having one car show up, and a we'll performing car leave. Im not a bulk business that has to tune 5 cars a day, every day. I spread out my tunes so I can work on your car in detail.

I tuned a Trans Am today that had been "tuned" at two local shops. It was a heads and cam with a 3600 stall. The car would hit the rev limiter in each gear. He was told by the last shop that tuned it that he needed a new transmission. I told him to come by, and if I couldnt fix it or he didnt like how I set it up, dont pay me.

We'll when the other shop sets each shift to shift at 20 MPH, doesnt allow the TCC to lock up, and commands 12.6 AFR but has a final AFR of 11.2, that shop just makes me look good.

You guys know I get a little anal and once I plug in, I have to try and fix everything I find. I fixed his WOT, Transmission shifts, and knock retard because it was commanding 28 degrees. I was paid and he was happy.

I just want your car to run like it was my car. I have to like the way the car turns out before I give it back.

Thank you guys for the business and Tracy's shop for alway challenging me. You can stop and give me a bolt ons car once in a while
Get those cams
Phil

I was having some issues with the tranny until Tampa Tuning hooked me up with his auto tranny tune. Nothing but firm and fast shifts after he was finished. I would say an easy 2 tenths improvement in the 1/4 afterwords.

Making my Camaro run the way GM should have!

Thanks to Phil @ Tampa Tuning for bringing out the car I knew I purchased. With his engine & tranny tuning, I now have a real SS. It's worth the fee just to disable cylinder deactivation mode, but the throttle response and transmission shifts make this a whole new car -- so much more fun to drive! Thanks, Phil!
