    get some seat time with someone who knows what the hell there doing, you can mess a lot of shit up if you dont know what your doing.

    Read, read, and then read some more - few good books out there and the HP Tuners forum has lots out there

    When you get stumped HP Tuners forum, along with this one and Tech are good places to either find a similar question already answered or post anew

    I've been researching since last December and finally getting to the dangerous point(ie think I have an idea of what I am doing )

    R&D and alot of seat time is how most learned

    This is a good place to start though http://www.hptuners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14425

    The guide to a good tuning experience is basically what I would've done if I could start over again.
