Colorado Dynos adn Tunes?

Hey all,

So I have decided to go and do some baseline dyno and tune work prior to installing any goodies.

have a couple questions:

1) Can anyone reccomend a good dyno outfit in the denver/boulder area?

2) will they do the tune work?

3) if the answer to 2 is no, how do I do the tune work? (have a 72 nova, but all I need to tune that is a scredriver, a 9/16 wrench, timining light, and vaccum gauge! )

Thanks gents!

4) is it warranty voiding to tune, I notice people have to utilize PCM tuners in order to do things?

Sorry, I'm in NY, so I can't help w/ question 1 or 2.

Any actual tuning should be done AFTER you do any other work (like intake, exhaust, cam etc...), you will get much better results.

IMO, you're better off leaving tuning to someone with L99/LS3 experience.

YES, it "could" void your warranty, if they could blame the tune for the broken part (just like pretty much any aftermarket performance part). BUT, if you did need to bring in the car for any warranty claim, you could just have the PCM re-flashed with the stock tune. Your dealer wont be able to tell it was ever changed.

If there's no dyno-tuners in your area, there are some that offer mail order tunes. I could recommend a few if needed.
