Mine wasn't dyno tuned and it runs very strong....

He datalogs it and street tunes it... as long as he can keep his eye on your A/F your car will be fine... The datalogging will show your A/F...
This is true if you buy and install a wide band O2 for your car. The factory O2's are not wide band, and using them for a A/F reading is not very accurite at all.

What do you guys think? Dude's a great tuner but does not have a dyno!
No matter what you do, you absolutly must get a a/f ratio reading before the car goes WOT, NO Execptions.

boosted 2v cars are just not going to take any detonation whatsoever. one lean condition and it is ALL over. Your better off with your MMR 900... but you spent alot of money on that sucker.

Make sure he uses a wideband (a must) and dyno it after he is done. The hard part though, even with a wideband, is going to be telling if the car is running as good as it can without being on the dyno. Unless your going to do it at the dragstrip how are you going to tune it for max power?

Doing 3rd or 4th gear pulls down the highway repeatedly, tends to attract unwanted red/blue lighting in your rearview.[:@]

Of course a custom tune (provided the tuner know what he is doing) is gonna be the best route. But by whats in your sig, you should be fine running the tune that comes with the xcal 2.

I already have been tuned on a dyno, it's an inquiry for some local folks around me that swear by this guy! I'd never in a million years get a tune with no dyno run!

Yeah, you need to take it in to get the A/F dialed in ASAP after the s/c install. Goin lean is not something you want to roll the dice at.
