It depends on your power goals more then anything. A local tune using HPT or EFlive will always be Better then a canned tune. A remote tune which is what bnr and vtune offers is sometimes just as good as a in person tune.

I don't see anything wrong with a canned tune if you aren't gonna slap on more than a muffler(delete) and a hot air intake. Would be nice to be pushing KOBALT's numbers but I'm content with the passing power that I already have with eSAT at the moment. The future, I can't tell if my goals will change completely after I finish my other car build.

I went with a custom ZZP dyno tune. They are 3 hours from my house, so I decided to head up there last October. All of the employees are really nice and Matt M was ready to tune my car at 9am right when I showed up. He knows his stuff and was telling me about the ZZP cruze shop car they modded a few years back. Overall, tune took over an hour and Matt made 6 pulls. Drivability is great and I have not had a problem at all. I love the ZZP tune. Car made 160WHP/TQ on 18.5 PSI. Matt said anything over 18.5 just over-spins the stock turbo and not that much power is gained.

Pretty much with the GM TQ PID(hp and TQ predictions) A tuner thats sharp and willing to data log you a few times can dial the power in.All remotely done.

KOBALT is running a BNR EFILive tune. We dialed it in on the street and then he took it to get dynoed. We did not adjust it any once it got to the dyno so as to demonstrate what we were capable of with a street tune.
