SoCal: Who/Where is your tuner of choice?

Postby SidekickChuck » Thu Aug 01, 2013 2:43 pm

My ae86 has previously been tuned by Church Auto, and I will be needing to get another tune soon. My question to you is, who do you recommend as a good tuner for an ae86 with a Haltech ECU and plenty of mods on a built engine?

Ones that have been recommended in the past are:

Church Auto
Bluemoon Performance
FSR
Koji Arai of Auto Talent (formerly from DriftSpeed)


All recommendations welcome. If you have their tuning rates per hour, that would be helpful as well.

Shawn at Church just recently tuned the Haltech 500 on my ae86. I will need another tune in a few months. Let me know how good is the other shop, the type of machine, and how much they charge.

Thank you for your recommendation. Have to try and get my Haltech wideband bung in this weekend or next, then think about different cams and a tune.

All the ones mentioned will be an hour or two from San Diego. But I am sure there are capable tuners in the SD area. Lets hear about them!
