Thoughts on KT custom tunes

just ordered my TS chip a few days ago. and i was looking in to getting a reburn in about a month from KT performance. anyone tried them? i want to get a reburn for the eco and the lope tunes.


worth doing? any better than the TS tunes? i ordered it with stock, high idle, 50, 75, 100 and 140hp.


let me know, thanks!

I have not heard anything about them (you might ask them who does their programs). Personnaly I would go with tunes from Tony Wildman @ Total Diesel Performance (TDP), Bill @ Power Hungry Performance (PHP), Matt @ Gearhead Automotive Performance, Bean's Diesel Performance (BDP), or Swamps Diesel Performance. I would also mention Jody @ DP Tuner, but I don't think he uses the TS chip platform. Cheers!

yea my second choice was PHP. i was just wondering because KT does reburns with "custom tunes" for $35 + shipping to and from. they probaly are just generic tunes as well.


do you have an idea of what a PHP reburn would cost?

thanks

I doubt you'll get anything remotely custom for $35+shipping. Generally custom tunes will run you $2-250 with lifetime reburns.
At $35 everyone and their grandma would be using that place.

If you read the description, it says PHP reburn for the item number. I'm guessing they are a PHP dealer and burning PHP tunes but I would ask before I spent the money.

They are PHP tunes. That is where I got my chip from. I am happy with the tunes so far. I have been debating on having it reburnt from someplace custom so I can do a little more with my fuel because of the intercooler and e-fuel.
