    Thinking I may need a custom chip in my Suburban. Where is the best place to get one burned? I think the best would probably be a dyno burn chip, but I don't know where a place like that is or whether I can really afford that. I can justify a few hundred to make the Burb run right, 5 or 6 hundred I can't.

    Check with www.pcmforless.com. I think that there shop is near Pittsburg, but I believe his chip burning guy is in NC. They have dyno days quite often.

    I should have gone to Baltimore yesterday. A guy back home rented a Dyno for the day. If I had a computer and all I could have done some real tuning.

    On the Main Menu in the left column, select a highlighted day on the calender (or under "Dyno Tuning Events")for dyno days- looks like they will be at Xotic Motorsports in SE PA March 12 or so. Go to "Prices and Ordering" for the price options.

    yeah but the pricing is for his standard proms he has boxed for stock rigs it seems. If thats what it would be for a custom chip after a dyno run, I will definteally jump on it. Though of course I will have to drive across the state to get to that Dyno Day. I saw a place in Pittsburgh that does Dyno Tuning at the car show yesterday. I blew it off and looked at cars :mad: Ripping down the river roads in Pittsburgh made me realize I really need to fix this driveability issue. School has a dyno now but they won't have it operating for a bit and doubt they'd just let me sit there and tune.
