    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.

    Re: What hp tuner to get?

    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.
