    I've never dealt with Gude before so I can't say from personal experience... but given all the negative crap I've heard about them, plus my extremely positive experiences with Jeff and IB, I would go with IB.

    wow. I must be doing something right. Also guys.

    I am in the process of opening a research and developement dyno center in the LA area.

    Then I can have way more proof the stuff I sell works as advertised, and so on. I would have alot more graphs up, but one of the damn dyno's we use doesn;t even have a USB port and its in DOS with no floppy drive.

    So I can't get anything off it. Sucks. I will get some more from the dynapack and put those up soon.

    The new facility will be one where you can purchase any product from me, and then you can come and have me, personally tune the car with the part to show you before and after results.

    We are going to have an intake pipe from most every company on the wall, and various headers, oils, spark plugs, etc, all for testing.

    thanks guys.

    Jeff

    Thanks, thanks alot.

    I really think that when people see that I do care, i want them to succeed, and that I am on a dang mission to change this industry for the better, then people "might" come to me. There are so many companies out there, selling everything. You have to make a difference to get business. I get negative people hating on me all the time, all over the USA for a variety of reasons for something that happened to me 3+ years ago in texas. And despite all that, I have the most positive attitude in the industry and seek to help people whether they like me, or hate me.

    Even people that hate me, buy from me. Because I help them equally. Everyone wants to make HP.

    I will be in HOUSTON, TX next sunday and monday tuning a racecar. Anyone live around there wanna come over?

    Jeff
