As a relatively new member of the community and someone who spent most of their car time on mustangs, I've had a few tuner experiences. Anyone thinking about a tuner should 100% order from dynosteve. My 2014 L99 only has a set of Flowmaster Force II mufflers and an Airaid cold air kit on it. I noticed that I had a small amount of backfire when the car started and it smelled like it was running a little rich. This brought me to the idea that it was probably time for a tune. After a ton of reading on the forums, I reached out to dynosteve for a tune. Let me just say this tune made the car night and day amazing. The shifts are so much firmer, and it takes off so much more smoother. With my previous Mustang I ordered a custom tune from Bama Performance (see American Muscle) and what I got was a tuner with a thrown together tune (custom in their words) that was in just a box, not even carefully packaged, that I had to update myself. Steve sent me the tuner in its original box and it was already up to date. The file send and receive was lightning fast. If someone is on the fence or not sure about tuning if you're new to these cars, you are in great hands with dynosteve.

I'm already thinking about the next mod, even with the warranty... Thanks Steve!

I installed a package deal from one of RDP's competitors that included a CAI, LTH, and tune. I was a bit disappointed after the install, it sounded great but didn't feel much better that it did stock.
I kept seeing posts about how great the tunes from dynosteve were and how they really woke up the car. I thought they were just feeling the trans tune and since mine's a manual I wouldn't feel the difference.
But I decided to send steve a PM and he replied back with a price I couldn't pass up. So I sent him the info required and received the new tune the next day. Got it installed, and WOW what a difference! Now I know what I've been missing out on.
Thanks Steve!

True to his words Steve had my updated tune back to me THE SAME DAY!. Once I got the rear finished, the new tune installed without a hitch(I make sure all SCT SW and device updates are installed BEFORE doing any tune updates!) Car started right up and then dropped to a nice low idle and so far the couple of cruises have been perfect!

THANK YOU SIR!

So the parts made it in. Headers went in very smoothly without any issues. SCT X4 is so easy to work with. I had a few user errors with uploading the stock .sul file, but I got it!!! Once that was sent off, Dynosteve and RDP was on point with responding and keeping me in the loop. Will do business again with these guys. Thank you RDP team!!!

I had to run my stock tune for probably 20-30 miles when it was in the dealership being repaired. And wow, there is a huge difference compared to the stock tune. The car pulls so much harder in the top end, the throttle response is 100 times better, and their is no lag when you start hitting the throttle. Feels like a different car.

I have no idea why the car doesn't come this way from the factory, thanks again Steve! Incredible Tune!
