Default Any updates on UTEC tuning locally?

Hi,
I have a TXS Stage 4 and short of driving to PDX/Perrin in Portland ($400+ US), wondering if there is anyone road tuning Utecs locally yet? I know the very basics but would obviously perfer someone who knows their *****.
I know PDM is supposed to get a 4WDyno, but a road tune should be fine (At least) for now. Since I have a VF35 I know a custom tune would help...the stage 4 maps are all for VF30s.
Cheers,

Broz

Hi,
The UTEC is great, but if you are planning out your mods to a certain level, I think the ECU reflash is the way to go.
But since modding can be addictive, you never know what you're gonna want next!
I have heard of substantial gains from a dyno tune, however...that's why I'm asking about local support.
Cheers,

Brian Broz

Expensive investment.

I thought Kinetic would come out with an awd dyno due to the demand from the BCDSM guys.

Forgive my ignorance but what is MFRT?
Apparently converting a 2WD dyno to 4WD is approx $120,000!
Portland looks like the way to go then...apparently they are really good tuners there (at Perrin).
Cheers,
