Default Dyno tuning -vs- Road tuning

I am planning on getting vf30,sti inj,fuel pump in the near future and was also planning on getting ecutek'd..I was just curious to know what kind of tunning is better road tunning or dyno tunning? From the people i have talked to i have heard mixed reviews on what is better.. I hope AZscoobie jumps in and gives his thought on this topic too..

Thanks
Dave

AZscoobie will most likely say, dyno tune until good then road tune until perfect. The load placed on a car while on the dyno is generally much greater than what you can expect on the road. This is why the best tuners will "fine tune" everything on the road after all the dyno work has been done.

Think of it this way, you can probobly get to 90-95% of your potential on the road... that last few HP is available via a dyno, due more to the controlled environment.

But, in defense of dyno'ing, you need brass balls to do 5th gear pulls to really emulate the load, if you REALLY want to check for det in the worst conditions.

i find that dyno tuning is nice to get a perfect WOT map... i mean yeah u can tune part throttle.. but just save the dyno tuned map.. 1 for street use (adjust as needed) that is modified.. and one that is the dyno map for the track...
