Just acquired a 2008 saturn sky (tuning question)
« on: March 13, 2017, 05:59:02 PM »
I was looking into the trifecta tune vs hp tuners and a custom tune. Thinking of going hp tuner along with an exhaust, hiflow cat, bigger ic and charge pipes....eventually thinking of upgrading the turbo as well. I just want more explanations on hp tuners and if anyone knows of a person who custom tunes remotely

Or Contact Lyndon at Westers Garage. Supporting members here get a $200 discount on his race tune. I have the Westers race tune and I would do it all over again. His tunes are WAY better than his website.    :lol:

Don't go with Trifecta or you are stuck with one tuner. Go HPTuners and choose which tuner you like.
My advice: if you don't have a strong tuner locally who knows this platform pretty well, only than go with remote tuning, both David from DDM or Lyndon from Westers are great guys.
Local tuner is preferred especially if you are planing to upgrade your turbo.

Thanks for the info. Was wondering exactly what would be needed to purchase to have someone like Dave at ddm remote tune my car. When I wss on the hp tuners site. I saw some things about needing more credits to buy a license and stuff like that

HPT comes with 6 credits.
You will need 2 of those to tune your car and will have 4 to spare.
Then it depends on how much a tuner would charge you.  Normal is $250-$350
