    Finally, I had everything ready for some seriouse tuning and for dyno. but the guys at the shop told me that since I had an engine light on, its better that I fix the engine light first. They offer to fix my wirring for $250 before doing the tunning. I am not an expert on hooking up wires and I had to admited that my wires wont looking good, but at least my car runs, only the engine light on. the engine check is traced to an O2 sensor. What do you guys think, should I go ahead and do the tunning with the engine light on or fix it before doing it. thanks....check for my signature for mods if interested!

    you can't tune a car thats running like shit.

    if you have codes, you shouldn't be near a dyno.

    :withstupid: and you already answered your question, they're not going to let you tune it until it's running properly in the first place.

    get it running right --> tune it --> run it.

    the car is running perfectly fine and the reason its not running to its potential is because its not tuned. the engine light was traced to an 02 sensor. thanks for all the tips, but I will redo my wires this weekend to make sure all the wires have good connection. thanks

    You can't tune a car that has a problem in the o2, since air/fuel is a big part of tuning.
