Default Cobb Tuning, Not tuning Customer cars

I heard from a reputable source that last week was Cobb Tunings last week for tuning customer cars.


Atleast, that is the rumor that I have heard. Care to elaborate or clarify Lil Biggie!?

I have called down their twice to set an appointment for a couple dyno runs. So you can make your sex change appointment I talked to 2 different people, Chris said he would talk to the tuner and call me back when they could find a spot in the "tuning" schedule. I am assuming they will stop tuning when they run out of appointments.

Sorry Brody, I am not always on the computer/cars-n-coffe/Taco-tuesdays/whatever.

Thanks Biggie for the clarification. I am sad to see cobb leave Utah, we now will have one less cool thing we can claim as our own.

Pretty much. The good news for me is I am trying save enough money for a LM-1 for the WB tuning. If I could cover the funds for an actual shop I would buy a dyno. I didn't really consider is very heavy in the past becuase Cobb all ready had a dyno. Having 2 that close together just didn't seem to be a very good idea. I am still a long ways out on being able to open my own shop. This economy isn't been very good to me and all my businesses this past year

I am hoping for anything over 320.... Any dyno can very quite a bit from 1 day to the next, 1 run to the next. I only show the best of the best when I post my graphs. I have had everything from 290 to 360. There are way to many variables with road conditions and car conditions.

I understand this. But I will add this much to that.... When I did my tunes I would come back different days/months/gases and they were always within 10 whp on cobbs dyno. Having been on that dyno 11 different times, I think that is pretty sufficient data.

I have noticed though when I did pulls on the AP dyno that it would vary largely.

Jason, I am sure your car is balls fast and fun, I just don't see how the Vf39 can move enough air to hit 360 whp. I may be wrong and would love to be proven wrong.

Ya, I understand that on a dyno. I do my pulls at 3 different locations. 2 pulls on my way to work. 1 pull on the way home. The pulls are done at 2 different times of day. I do my best to compare pulls on the same road, same time of day, same temperature. It's just really hard to do. I am pretty confident my car is somewhere between 320 and 360 if it's not that's fine too. it's fun to drive and it's nice to think I better not give it too much gas from this light becuase I might go sideways.

E85 I am sure makes a world of difference. What MPG are you getting?

why go to Cali to get tuned when they are different elevations your tune may be awesome in Cali but suck ass in Utah if you are considering going out of state to tune then I suggest Colorado much closer and almost the same elevation just an idea though.

I agree, plus we have different fuel and that will make a difference, California 91 is different than Utah 91 octane. Although, you would be better off tuning at a lower elevation and then coming to a higher elevation than the other way around. Tuned from Utah then going to Cali, you will more than likely boost spike where the other way around you will just lose power.
