My Local Tuner or Mo's SCT tuner?

was wondering what would be the best thing to get my car tuned once i add the 4.10's. I have a guy locally who has a dyno and would love to tune my car. I wont have to buy the SCT tuner or just go with Mo's tune? with the local tune its $450 plus i get pulls on the dyno. 4.10's have been ordered

theres no doubt Lidio knows his stuff from what ive read. Only thing im concerned about is its basically a generic tune because i cant actually be at his shop and have him tune my car on a dyno.

Unless you have a power adder (blower or extensive engine work) a dyno tune does not really benefit a n.a car with just. 4:10's . Mos tune is derived from a marauder on a dyno. These cars are not mustangs as alot of tuners think

Both are good. I've been to Mos twice, and he is active on the boards daily and is more than helpful outside of business hours if needed. Lidio is still a fine tuner , I just have not dealt with him myself. I don't believe he frequents here very much.

Lidio's tune is a good one, in fact I have it in my car. Like above said Lidio infrequently is on the MM board and Marty from Mo's is here almost everyday. I have no experience with Mo's tune yet but will most likely be putting it in our 2nd MM. Mo's may be quicker to respond if you wish to make changes to his tune if needed.
Either way both tunes I feel won't disappoint as the stock tune is a disaster.

Not true.

Each car / engine is different and to get the best out of your car / engine, even if stock, a dyno tune by a competent tuner will get the most HP and drive-ability for you.

Definitely get a Mo's tune. Even his "generic" one is better than stock.

That may be true. But I'm not spending dyno rates to tune a stock car. I'll go for a already proven tune .
