    Ok om not sure when im gonna actually boost or if i even will period. But here is my main worry. Every time im reading on boosting everyone says the main thing is the tune. But iv been asking around a while now and cant fine any place in my area that even knows about turbo setups. Now i know i could ship my car out and get it tuned but hey.... im another low budget tuner! Anyone know any options i may have here?

    Thanks in advance!

    Umm, if you cant get someone to tune it you need to start reading. Lol, not tryin to be an ass, but really just start researching tuning and teach yourself how to do it. Otherwise, find a tuner that you can drive to and make a day out of it.

    Lol, I understand you there. But, with the limited resources you have I dont think you have many other other options.

    www.tunewithcrome.com
    Neptune Engine Management Products for tuners and DIY ECU Enthusiasts who want to save money and do it right. Neptune, TurboEdit, Uberdata and Crome supported here at Xenocron.com
    www.hondata.com

    To start. Just read through the sites. Read everything. From there, read other forums. Just stay focused on electronics and tuning. Its just like everything else, your gunna hafta sort through endless pages of shit, but there is good info out there.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, the best starting point would be in the forums in the second and third link. They pertain to the topic you interested in, so youll start out with less bullshit to read through. :)

    No problem, glad it helped. Tuning varies from car to car and youll run into different problems with every car. Thats why all I can do to help is suggest that you read. If you decide to tune your own car you should keep us updated. Im interested to see how your first attempt goes. GL.

    Ya I hear you there. Thats even more of a reason to learn to tune your own car. Around here the dynos run around $100 an hour or like $45 a pull, and thats without the labor fee for the tuner. If you learn to tune it yourself then you can take it in, rent the dyno for an hour then make a few pulls with minor adjustment in between and get it all dialed in for way less.

    Look at bigger cities. I agree since your new at this, you probably want someone else to do the first tune on it. You can always learn by watching him and tweaking it on the street.

    But ya look at bigger cities around you. Someone in the state of New York has to have some honda tuning experiance. No matter who or where you find your tuner, please do yourself a favor and have it towed on a flat bed there. It may cost you a lil more to go the distance, but in your case should be worth it.

    lol, "he's going the distance, he's going for speed" lol....

    gluck sir!
