    Multiple ways of going about this.

    Send Frost a PM here.

    Go to www.tunedbyfrost.com and send Steve an email.

    Send Steve your PCM for a mail order tune

    If you own HPT, do a email tune session for your modifications like I did.

    Either way, just send Frost a Private message here. Hes a cool guy and will take care of what you need.

    If you have extensive modes (cam especially), it's better to do a tune in person.

    Mail orders tunes will never be perfect for cammed cars. Just a thought.

    Its possible to do email tuning if you own HPT and a WB.

    Thanks for the nice words guys!

    If you own HPT, even if you have no wideband, your results will be better than just mail order tuning as the $125 includes a base tune, a cfg to use with your scanner and instructions that tell you exactly how to log. You email the log(s) back to me, I update and we do it again.

    If you have any questions at all either send me a PM, or use this contact form to email me: http://www.tunedbyfrost.com/contact.php

    HPT = HP Tuners. See http://www.hptuners.com/ for more info.

    Wideband = a wideband oxygen sensor. Our cars come equipped with narrowband sensors to provide info to the PCM. There are actually 4 sensors installed on your exhaust system, 2 on each bank, with 1 upstream of the catalytic converter and 1 downstream. I believe their output is in millivolts and it cycles up and down significantly while the engine is running from what I can see on my scanner. In order to tune your car, a wideband O2 sensor is utilized to read the air/fuel ratio. The better widebands also provide an output of 0-5 volts that interfaces with HP Tuners, or other software. Here's an example: http://www.innovatemotorsports.com/products.php

    I don't know if I want to keep using him anymore.



    Damn guy keeps bugging me for logs. Sending me tunes all the time to try.
    And constantly asking me how the car is running.
    It really sucks having a vendor wanting your car running better than you.
