But first, some questions. Now I know that calling Shawn is best but it's late and I can't call now anyway. With my 5* tunes, all options were locked including tire size. Are Socal's tunes like this? I'm only asking because I may get some different tires in a couple months, not sure what size I'm gonna go with yet. With 5* I would have to have them change the tune for a different size, which to me, also sounded like there would be a charge for that. If I purchase some Socal tunes now, what is the fee for a tire size change down the road? Also thinking of going catless later, is there a turn off the O2 fee?

I've heard about the BandC, level 5, and 5hot. Are there any other levels? What I want is a 87 heavy tow tune, a 87 performance/light tow tune, and maybe a 87 hot tune. All with the speed limiter removed and all with MattH shift strategy. The touchy throttle may be good for some but I don't want it too touchy. I'm on far too many gravel/dirt roads and construction sites for that. Eliminating the DBW lag, yes please but not too touchy. Is that possible?

Even though I missed the boat about a week ago, I'm still impressed with Shawn's offer to me. So much that I feel like I need to try his tunes. Hopefully, if the stars align right tomorrow, I can call him.

You've done well Set, I've got a dyno scheduled for the 30th, I'll have to see when the 1/8 mile track is open again. Since we've got Boosted's times on the 1/8 I'll throw my hat in that ring. The 1/4 hopefully in Sept.

I glad I come to the SoCal side. I only had tune in for one day and already love it. I was running LMS tunes every since they come out. SoCal beats LMS hands down my 2 cents. Thanks to Sheriff SHAWN.
