What I tend to laugh at is the HP levels the new 5.0 is achieving and with ALL the tuners bringing those levels up another 5-10% the seperation is but a couple of HP......maybe 5 ??? ....correct ??.....am I missing something here ??
if so and if anyone feels they can descern (in the seat of their pants) a difference of 5HP when a motor is making say 435 -440hp I have two words.........'BS' !!
Now with regards to 'off the line accceleration' if these tuners have more serious swings in thier trq numbers say under 5k then that could be a different matter.
Peak HP numbers mean nothing. Ive offered to do back to back overlaying dynos with other companies against my Lund tune and so far no takers...
Drivability is another thing, too. Not all tunes are the same. how the car acts under normal driving conditions, full throttle acceleration, mid range, low end, top end, etc.
Also, pay attention the th various threads that pop up with issues some companies keep having. I wont bash anyone, but its pretty obvious. The same couple companies accross a few boards are having issues with knock, pinging, having to constantly gt re-tunes. etc.
Ive Had the tune installed when the car had only an intake. installed a catback, no re-tune required. cat deleted and xpipe, no re-tune required. no bucking, no lurching, no CEL's. Just factory like drivability with a bad ass tune that woke the car up. Not only is Jon SOLO, two major mustang shops not only use him to tune all customer cars, but they also use him to personally tune their shop cars. Lethal and Evolution performance.
Like i said, some people will be happy paying 50-75 for a tune, and go about there day. To those who have used or are currently using Jon's tune know how its worth every bit of what h charges. Of course, this is just how i feel, and others may differ. all you can do as a buyer is consume all the info and make the best decision. your car, your money.
