Check out PHP (PowerHungryPerformance), they have a 140 Extreme that makes lots of power and they offer a dedicated smoke tune.

Ive had PHP and now have Gearhead tuning. Ditch the thoughts about PPE ore ATS, bottom line.

Any custom tuner that uses the "TS" style chip is the way to go. If you don't like one guys tunes send it to someone else and have it reburned.

Any custom tuner will give you max power and enough smoke to make you happy. There really isn't much of a difference in max hp between tuners, it's just how they make the hp that is different.

For instance, PHP had gobbs of power in their tuning but with it came lots of smoke. And now with Matt's tunes I have the same amount of power on tap but with much less smoke

I prefer matt's tunes so far, his shifting is spot on and i really like his shifting strategies.

In my opinion, go with Dp tuner. Jody is a great guy to work with. I love my tunes, especially 140 aggressive.

I like TW personally. With custom tunes it really just comes down to personal preference.
