Does anyone know this guy? He says he lives in Hamilton
What The Fek kinda Dufus are y'all, anyway?
Cheef lives in T/O. I live in the Hammer, like you.
Thus - Please note: THERE IS NO ONE 'LOCAL' THAT IS WORTH A DAMN TUNING F150'S..
It is not even CLOSE to the being the same as tuning mustangs or (shudder) ricers - and that's all that we have around here - crappy ricer shops.
THAT is why we ( and a lot of other folks) do mail-order tuning. OR even better, someplace CLOSE like Livernois to do dyno sessions. Most folks would KILL to be this close to a well-respected shop that knows F150 SCT custom tuning.
I happily drove 10+ hours to Virginia for some of mine. Troyer Performance. I also use email tuning from VMP - as stated in my previous PM.
The only others worth trusting a truck to are in Jersey (JDM) and Georgia (PHP). Well, there's also 5Star but I have my personal reservations there - and they are in South Carolina. We are DAMNED lucky Livernois is in Detroit!!!
In any case mail-order or live dyno), you have the device and the electronic files containing the calibrations. In the RARE event that 'something goes wrong' the tuner feller can email you revised tunes you can load yerself, and you have the capability on the device to datalog the truck and send that to him for review to facilitate this if required.
Clearly - you have a lot or research/reading/learning to do. This site has it ALL for the searching. Yer call. I'm sure you won't ... (Proof = yer poor choice of programmer vendor).
Also as Clearly - you appear to really not care all that much for yer truck - so why don't you just live with the crap canned tunes and continue to ignore the advice of folks who have 'been-there-done-that'.
"four hours" ... wow.
"border" ... more wow.
"$500" ... even more wow ( what did thsat truck scost you again? )
BTW - I sense that you don't bother to check yer PM's either (another Basic forum skill) so you'll never see this. LMFAO !!!
Man ... why me?
W.T.F - Part 2 ...
R U serious?
Yer shopping on Price as the predominant criteria ??? Are Ye daft ??? This is yer truck's TUNING we are talking about!
F150's, unlike any other vehicle, have thousands of differentt, unique PCM strategies - it's NOT trivial to tune and it requires Talent, Expertise and Experience in the platform to tune correctly !
What part of this do you not understand?
Look junior - those two shops are not gonna cut it - the first is primarily a diesel tuner; the second is a 'stang/car tuner.
Unless they can unequivocally demonstrate genuine GAS F150 proficiency - just run away.
If you'd bother to pull yer lumpy head outta yer ass long enough to do some research, you'd find many horror stories of folks going to shops like these and end up with lousy tuning at best - or - pekkered trucks at worst ... all to save a few $$$ or for the sake of convenience.
BTW - that Canadian F150 site is the LAST place I'd go for advice - buncha hosers, faggots, pansies and clueless Timmies Trolls - almost as sad as f150Forum - LMFAO !!!
I've concluded Yer too dumb to try and help any further - onto the Ignore list you go.
Again - too bad you'll never see this, as PM's seem beyond yer grasp
