Who to use for custom tuning.

Hey guys I just recently upgraded my injectors to full force stage 2's also put in a adrenaline HPOP and an upgraded Garrett turbo along with full exhaust and tymar intake. I was wondering what tuning you would suggest.

The hydra is their most expensive 488$ out the door for a stock set of tunes. It's more for the custom set, not much though check out their site I inly needed the stock for now.

I can't compare between TW and PHP, you can run TW tunes on PHP's chip so I'll probably end up trying that someday

Swamps = all out for most power
TW = touchy peddle and smokey
PHP = smokey but very drivable
Gearhead = no smoke, good driveability, great transmission tuning, but not a great power tune
DP = love hate relationship, some love it, some throw rods
BTS/Cal's = no power but shifts great
Beans = when compared to TW most like TW
No Limit = up and comer in tuning ( left beans to start on his own) most people who have them seem to realy like them

Most company's will put tunes on the new hydra chip, no limit was but has stopped, not sure if they started again.

Great thing about the hydra is, u can have swamps race tune, TW street tune, PHP tow tune, Gearhead daily tune to have the best thing from each tuner. And u can revive them by email and download it by flash drive without sending the chip back

How does tw compare to php in the way of trans tuning? Smoke levels? Power? I'm just wondering I used to have php and liked them a lot service was just hard to deal with and then once I got my baby swamps I just went ahead and got the swamps tuning and frankly wasn't that impressed smokey but I feel like that had a lot to do with the way they set trans up (not good) and I'll be getting my tw tunes in the mail so I'm just trying to get an idea of what to expect. Sorry about the life story just giving my experience and input

Thanks for all the info sounds like hydra is the way to go. What is your recommendation for an E-fuel kit.
