Oh I was under the impression that handheld tuners were a DIY type of deal. Like actually doing the tune yourself. I'm not sure what I was thinking about email tunes lol.
I'll try the other shops again, although, not sure how far out they schedule their appts. I'm going on vacation in a month and wanted to tune after I get back.

You have to INSTALL the tune yourself, but you don't have to DO the tuning.

I bought HP Tuners, and run it off a windows8 Tablet. Download the tune from an email from the tuner, plug the cable into the car and tablet, open the tune, turn the car key to "ON" (But not running), and press go on the HPT software. It takes a little over a minute to write the tune. Done deal.

That doesn't sound too bad. I just found another speed shop from chicaho5thgen.com. I just sent them an email so well see what they say. Otherwise, I'm gonna go the email tune route. I have a MacBook laptop, hopefully everything works fine on that. I know some programs don't like to run on macs lol

Ah yea I kinda figured.. That's what I was worried about. My shitty computer skills mixed with self installing some software and throw in the need to correctly install a tune is a recipe for disaster lol. Hopefully this other speed shop comes thru. According to C5G they do IPF tunes, but haven't heard first hand yet.

What gave you the love? Acceleration? Top End? Fuel mileage? Lower ET? Do tell!
