Tuners/Chips/Programmers, Read with caution...

No one freak out!!!

I have read and read about this topic. I have learned a lot, but still need a little help. Can someone(s) knowledgeable in CUSTOM stuff PM me. I would prefer a combination of non-dealers and a couple people that sell/tune (Raul, etc.).

I am pretty sure it is narrowed down to DP, TW, PHP (sounds like I know what Im talking about huh??? Nope!!)
I need people with a little time and a lot of patience please.

Any other newbies, feel free to contact me in a week or so.
Please keep the in forum posts to a minimum as this is definately a "touchy, horse beatin back to life, ran into the ground" subject.

Thanks to all in advance.

Keith,
Call and talk to each tuner about what your goals are.

You'll know who you want.

Good Luck

Hey trbo,

Just wanted to give you a heads up... 1/2 of PHP has food poisoning, and we are moving our scheduled monthly phone closure from next week to this week, so we won't be available by phone until Monday. We just didn't think it was fair to offer mediocre customer service -- due to being understaffed -- and then close next week completely. If you need to speak with us this week, feel free to e-mail Bill at bill@phptune.com and include your phone number in the e-mail. He'll be happy to call you back and discuss your chip needs. We'll be happy to chat with you without pushing any products on you, and if we can't help you, we'll be happy to direct you to a reputable company who can!

TW looked good. It really came down to them and DP for their ability to adjust "on the fly".
I liked the ability to download from my laptop with the DP wqas the biggest reason. I wanted the TW for its price and "onsite support" with Raul being a list member.

Really came down to a coin flip in the end. I dont think you can go wrong with either (of course this theory is based on absolutely no practical experience with either...)

Haha alright. Yeah Raul set me up very nicely and the customer support there at TW is pretty good so i dont figure it will take much time if i ever need it reburned! Mine should be here in a little over a week
