    well, i wouldn't include the price of a laptop in a tuning arsenal, seeing as it will be used after the tuning processs as well. :)

    are you building the bottom end?

    and are you going to tune on the dyno or the street?

    already have a laptop, so i only need the WB,ostrich, data cable & cromepro.
    i just want to see how easy it was for you to tune with the crome pro, so keep this thread going

    Imma street tune it first, and then when i get it ready i jump on the dyno.
