Default Tuning options

Hi guys
I had recently became a proud owner of a 15 brz, it is such an almost perfect stock car. However, while still in the break in period i can already feel there are minor flaws needing to be fixed. But theres nothing a lil tune cant fix! So my question for all you long term owners and experts, where would u recommend for me to turn for a quick stock tune? Im in los angeles california.
Looking for something just for stock parts atm. Of course if you know a tuner that does a very good job on afternarket parts, ill gladly hear it, i will eventually mod it anyways. Thanks all in advance.

The twins aren't like the wrx where you can just go buy a Cobb unit for cheap. The options right now are Ecutek or OpenFlash Tablet. There are some piggyback units as well. The OpenFlash Tablet is the nearest thing to the Cobb Access Port for the twins.

OpenFlash Tablet seems to be the way to go. You get power immediately and a convenient OBD II reader. Apparently they have a tune for the GrimmSpeed air intake (which I highly recommend), so that would be a nice bundle for power.

Openflash is open source and comes with a lot of pre-made maps. A "Tuner" is not required.

I have an unequel length header (revworks) and Nameless front pipe. I use the UEL off-the-shelf tune with my openflash.

It depends. The people that go FI generally use ecutek. But OFT is the "common" way to go.

I'd recommend going with ECUTek and a tune from Visconti. He does great work. He's done a few cars for some of my buddies (I'm still stock) and the results were awesome. One tune was for a turbo FRS my buddy has that was getting tuned by the guys at FT86 Speed Factory. Visconti's base tune was miles better the FT86s 6th revision tune.

I was very happy with my OFT before I went with a dyno tune.

He's saying the OFT is nice, but a dyno tune is nicer. Seems like it would be cheaper to just do a dyno tune, but I also want an OBD II reader. Probably a good idea with 60k miles on my car now.

O ok. What about ecutek etune? I know tuners usually utilize maps from the dyno tunes, or am i wrong? Somebody recommended visconti earlier posts, but theres so many out there.
