Thanks Scans..

Jon seems to be fitting in S0-Cal very well!! He is killing it here....not only did this area need a good local tuner, we also needed someone that has a license with Cobb to use there software. We have been very limited to who we can get tuned by locally..even though we have people from around the world come here, but who wants a tuner like that? Cobb doesn't want to saturate the market, nor to they want to give any Chad Chadskie the software, just b/c they have a dyno. Cobb is very specific, on who they allow the rights to use their software...lucky for us, he is still very tight with them.

I don't know if you know his lately's, but he came to CA by storm, started by remote tuning at various shops, and finally found himself a nice large space offering full service. Most (if not all) of the local Forrie's have been tuned by him, and he so far is doing a great job!!! As you can see by my prior tune....I wish he would have moved out here sooner.

Here is a lil shot of his shop..

Sick man, my 05 LGT, 06 Spec B and FSXT all spent time on that exact same dyno out here on the east coast.......

If I ever need a re-tune I'll wait till he's out here visiting again. (now I'm in your boat)
