DP Tuner live tuning?

Whats the deal with the live tuning. Is it worth it? How much does it ussually run? Do I have to go to him, or is it some internet thing or what?

Live Tuning is when Jody rides in the passengers seat of you truck with his laptop computer and literally tunes your truck as you drive it. Whether you go to him or he comes to you... I bet its not all that cheap to do but may be well worth it if your trying to get the absolute most and best out of your truck. strokin_early_99 (Howard) is going to get his truck live tuned I think sometime this month, so he may have more or better info. for you on this topic.

Jody is coming to PHX at the end of March for a live session at ITP. I think we have one spot left currently.

....and he has his IDS hooked up for monitoring. He makes live changes to the tunes as you drive along to see if you like them or if he needs to change it. Capturing data to apply to your tunes is another great feature.

The first thing that Jody will do is a contribution test and other tests to make sure you will (at that time) denefit to having live tuning. If things aren't working right then live tuning will not be beneficial for you. To save time and money I reccomend that you have this done a few days before or day of the tuning session.

Diane, are you coming out with Jody? Dennis is planning a weekend Fiesta at his place. I hit the clock Saturday at Noon. Trucks all good and ready to go. I just had Jody tune it for my stealth pump

It's gonna be a blast!!

Can't go this time. Thanks though.

Our kids are in school at that time. Our 1st grader has weekly CRCT's from now until the end of April. And for some reason someone has to be here to answer the phone. No, it's not the english lady.....
