    yes. Frost gets your PCM tunes it that day and ships it back that day or sometimes the next. So figure 2 days to get there, one day in Frosts hands, and 2 days back for a total of 5 days. you can overnite ship it both ways and cut that down to 2-3 days

    Yes I am curious about the same thing.. I was wondering what the turn around time would be because I drive my car daily. I did not have long tubes installed on my trans am but i did have a new exhaust installed and it seems like my car is getting worse gas mileage than before. I got 3in exhaust with a ORY, Electronic dump, and magnaflow catback.

    Can always do what I did and go to a local tuner. I know people who do it at shops and some who do tunes on the weekend for local forum member cheaper since your paying them not the shop they work for.
