Street tune vs dyno tune pros and cons.

I'm trying to decide on whether to go with a great street tune guy or a dyno tune that I don't know too much about. Input?

If you know the street tune guy and trust him, go with your gut. If you want a real speed shop to do it and since your out in BFE...Lubbock would probably be your best bet. I know there are two good shops in Abilene but that's a fair piece from you.

I have done both. Ended up having Ted @ JRE correct my last dyno tune with his street tuning.

As long as the tuner knows all your mods up front, is very familiar with the Camaro system AND you do the data logging to give them what they need for adjustment, you should be good to go.

TSP might be the best bet for my area.

The methodology is the same for me on either tune. The main differance is how many times do I want to do WOT on the street compared to the dyno with no risk. I keep my dyno price low to sway guys to the dyno to cut the risk.

Some packages I wont do on the street because of the HP level.

To clarify, the car will not have issues. The police will. The ticket would be $250.00-$350.00.

Its only $100 more to dyno tune with me lol
