Default Road tune or Dyno tune?

I'm looking to get my Cobb Stage 2.5 protuned and have been looking at Precision and Sloboy. Precision is closer, but does not have a dyno, Sloboy has a dyno. Which would result in a better tune, the dyno or road tune? I know the tuner has alot to do with it, but I've heard good things about both. Which should I go with.

Thanks.

You are right, the tuner makes the biggest difference. A good tuner will usually tune on the dyno and then do a quick road tune to make sure everything is spot on in the "real world." There's a bit more control over "circumstances" on the dyno so it's easier for the tuner but you can get a good tune by either method.

sorry if that doesn't help at all...

+1 Most good tuners are going to dyno tune the car. After they do that they will take it for a spin and fix any isues that need to be ajusted.

You can just get a roadtune and be happy. You just want have that pretty dyno graph to show off to your friends. Both are better I would think but if distance is a factor go ahead with the road tune. But like previously said if the tuner sucks sowill your tune
