    If you plan to use a wideband O2 (Which I strongly recommend) then get the pro version. It makes it easier to log data. You can log the wideband O2 right through your interface. Either version will work though.

    Where do I get a wide band O2 senser. I'm a little behind the curve with the computer tuned cars. I was looking at Summit for the HP Tuner I'm assuming the pro tuner you refer to is summit part number HP Tuner 6021 for $650... Does it matter which O2 senser I get as long as its ide band...

    Yes that's the one. I suggest the NGK AFX 91101 wideband. That is what I have a very easy to use.

    Pga and Timmy you think hp tuners are better than jesse's I have asked this before and 550 told me to drive to warsaw. I can't go that far current mod is only specter stage 1 and 2 would like to get a few more horses outta her. Also like the stock exhaust seems fine was gonna do a gibson but need to keep it quiet. let me know your guys thoughts.

    If you want to do your own tuning get the HPtuners. It is a lot of work but you'll be able change anything at any time. Plus the HPtuners comes with enough credits to tune 4 cars I think. Charge your buddies $150 each and you'll make most of your money back. PM me if you want to buy a tune from me.

    Stock exhaust works up to at least 450rwhp (at least on my car, ).

    I am not saying Jesse's tunes are bad but with only a Spectre Intake it is kind of a waste of money to get a dyno tune. If you are wanting to tinker then get HP Tuners. I am constantly scanning my car and tweaking my tune.

    If you want to load one and go then get Jesse's handheld with email tunes or Tim.

    When I left click all I get is "View Profile, Add as contact, and view forum posts"

    I'm not really new here, joined in 2005. I just don't post much.

    TimmyC, Are you "Turbo Tim" from ZZP? If you are you probably know who I am. I'll send you an email.
