Can you PM what to do please
Thank you
He sends you the SCTx4 tuner that you plug into your car and copy the stock tune. You email that to him and he emails you back a glorious one!

You upload that to your car with the handheld device. You start the car, hammer it and hang on!

I will need a list of all the mods you have done to the vehicle and what octane of fuel your running plus the stock .sul file and then i can get you dialed in, and no you will not need to buy a controller controller after i do the tune as i will do this as a part on the tune anyway sir

Got my tune today. Just got done loading it and taking it for a 'lil drive. I thought after I put the headers and HFC on there was a difference. The car is so much smoother and I can really feel the difference with my mods. The tune obviously brought everything together. I cant wait to put on the rest of my goodies, their just waiting patiently in boxes. Thanks DynoSteve and RDP Motorsport for the tune and great deal!

Hats off to RDP again. My StainlessWorks Headers and Cats went in today along with Steve's tune. Combined with my Borla Attak mufflers and K&N CAI the car sounds and runs just awesome. I can't thank Steve and Victor enough!

I got my tune today and let me start by thanking Steve, he worked on my custom tune on his day off and when I had problems with my car he went above and beyond to help me with my problems and finally I got it to work.
here is advice for future tuners
1- Do not open doors while updating the tune.
2- if the SCT freezes and the car doesn't turn on, unplug the battery and it should work again.

Finally I want thank Steve again, this is the best customer service I have ever seen.

Glad he got you sorted. So how is the car now that it's tuned?

When I did my update I had my driverside door open and was scared to even adjust the volume on the radio. I know that it has nothing to do with the ECU, but I though "it would be my luck.". I just sat there patiently waiting. lol The tune rocks and my car is so much more fun to drive.

Haha me too I didn't dare lower the window and turned the radio off to be on the safe side. One tune froze and I called Steve in a panic after hours. You can't imagine how how glad I was that he still answered the phone lol. Needless to say he helped me and all was good

My tune froze too and I got so scared. I called Steve, left a message and I got a call back. I was in super panic mode.

The car is much better compared to stock, I didn't get a chance to take it out yet, I did a quick lap around the block and I was pleased

I have a quick question, after the tune I noticed the shifting is hard between first and second, don't get me wrong it spins tires between gears, my question is it going to hurt the transmission in the long run ?
