looking for a tuner in NJ

hey I am looking for someone who can tune my engine for better performance and possibly disable the governor. I am in South Jersey and don't mind the drive. someone told me they could get another 50 hp out of my car and possibly make it louder...but he lives down in virginia and do not want to travel all the way out there.

50hp from a tune???? no...I wouldn't use that guy. Also, it's not gonna make it any louder unless you change the exhaust. Maybe he's also trying to sell you headers???

With only a tune, you're gonna see 15-20hp at the most (probably a little less even)...but the real gains are felt more from better throttle response and a transmission tune if you have an auto (as well as disabling things like torque management, skip-shift, AFM, speed limiter etc). If you want to make the drive up to NY...I can recommend someone.
