We should have a tuning section

Seriously. I'm sure there are members here who wouldn't mind a dedicated section to HP tuners/diablosport/general dyno tuning discussion...

Who is with me?

Just start a thread dedicated to HP Tuners. You will notice the same 5 people in it post and I probally won't be one of them since I have only tuned 1 car. Plus, HP Tuners forum has some really good info on it. I wish there was a tuning for dummies guide that was broken down in simple to read English though... unless I didn't find it and its right in front of me.

Post up a tutorial in the engine section. Do a good job and we'll make it a sticky.

I'll pitch the idea to Admin(Randy) and see where it goes.

HPTuners is a really good site. And yes there should be a tuning for dummies guide besides those Tuner Schools that charge a butt load of money.

I'm starting one in Word right now because it's going to be a huge writeup, and I'll have to take some screen shots as well to help 'splain it. That way I don't post it and some n00b is like WTF I DONT GET IT.

I PM'ed/emailed some members the tuning guide that's floating around out there, but I'm going to clean it up a bit/dumb it down a shade, and throw in some tips/tricks I've learned to get you started and not have to do 10 billion hours of searching and reading for a relatively simple procedure.
