Oh and I use Micky Thompson ET Streets for traction, anything less make the car worthless and it looks like you might put down a little more power than me unless thats a happy Dynojet used for that graph.

Im not sure what machine it was dynod on. My builder uses H.S. auto and dyno in omaha for tuning. Word of mouth made me a little leary of The Shop, although i have no personal experience there. I did decide on the et streets for a tire, just havent ordered them yet. Im hoping my large costs are all known now. I wont get em probably until i knowy ECM isnt toast also.

I have used both shops, The Shop Inc has the best reputation in the area. HS in Omaha does not have that great of a reputation. I like TJ the owner but I wouldn't trust anyone in that shop to work on a big dollar build. Chad at the Shop Inc does all the big names in the area, the only downfall is they are extremely busy all the time. I know several people who will never use HS ever again including myself. All the local guys like Beater Bomb, Sketchy Vert, The Blackhawk, C5 Unicorn Vette, and even Cleetus McFarland (when in town) and quite a few others use Chad for a reason. I would do some more asking around. Hit me up in PM and I can add you to some of the local racing / car pages where you can get more opinions.

I will ask my builder for his input i suppose. I trust him. For right now, were not going to alter my tune unless theres something apparent that needs attention. Hes just going to clean up some of the mess from the previous build and the tune, like evap circuit codes, and trans codes for high pump pressures and stuff like that. That stuff shoulda been dealt with originally. I hate unnecessary engine codes all the time.

Good stuff, Jeff that used to own LSX before he moved to Colorado helped me out a bunch with my build. I know they do good work there. I still like TJ and he went out of his way and hosted a charity dyno day for my cousins son who is a make a wish kid.
