drag strip with canned tunes. now i need custom tunes

so saturday i went to the strip for the first time. holy crap i'm hooked. the best time i ran was a 14.291 on the canned performance tune. now i'm looking for some custom tunes to see if i can make it into the 13s before i go to bootcamp next monday. so who use what tunes and does anyone think i can pick up .400 of a sec. with custom tunes?

You prolly can't get one under $100, or before Saturday.

Just start a flying run, start 200 feet back behind the line

not sure how much elite charges for just their tunes... i think innovative is right around a 100 bucks for custom tunes... cale thompson is like 25 bucks for a tune i think. I dont have his email though.

Idp e mails you the tunes so you can have them in a couple hours. Try and take everything you can out of it. Run with 1/4 tank of fuel or so... take the tail gate off... 100 pounds is a .10 of a second

Keep it idling in the staging lanes to keep your oil warm. It will help the turbo spool up, even though you have VGT, it helps a TON on mine. I ran a 18.6 cold, and an 18.2 warm.
