but anyways i been thinking about those two since there are only 30 minutes away from me.

wich one would you guys choose?

im running safc with vpc.

***
oh quick question about the vpc.
when i get it tuned the knob has to be all at 12oclock?
***

price is important so wich one tune faster?

tune it yourself! Air/fuel is way too easy and vpc should be all 12 o clock. I recommend blacktrax though my car is right there right now and they do great work. If you want john reed is coming down to tune my car at blacktrax so you can talk to him about pricing

FFTEC all the way. Sean is a great tuner and their prices are pretty damn good. All my work is done by FFTEC and I've had no complaints yet on the quality and great customer service.

i'm going maft pro cause of it's features and i want to get my car tuned pretty soon, but none of these shops probably know anything about it yet or could they just immediately understand.

I think the MAFT was designed initially for mitsubishis,Or were designed by some mitsibishi tuners..( I don't know i forget ) , so anyone who tunes Mitsus should know about it for sure.
I know for a fact that FFTEC does tune quite a lot of Misubishis and such, I'm sure Blacktrax does the same.
Your car was tuned at FFTEC

I believe someone at blacktrax told me they've done the maft pro before. Jay did my tuning at blacktrax, did a really good job, i'm taking my car back there after i drop in the new motor. I hear good things about both places.

I know blacktrax is $185/hr for tuning. Does anybody know what FFTEC charges?

that's true, if you go maft-pro's site it has it available for the 3000gt's and eclipse's. the reason i'm changing to the maft pro is it has the ability to run speed density so the car will run super smooth, it's software is going to be constantly updated with free downloads, it runs directly off of a wideband, and it also has a built in boost controller if you get the vacuum solnoid.

but it's only been available for the mk3 for a limited time so i doubt anyone at those shops has tuned a 7m with the maft-pro. but i guess if their good enough it shouldn't matter they can figure it out from tuning maft-pro on some mitsu cars.

Hey guys,

This is Jerry from Full Function. It all depends on what you'd like to have tuned, but our prices are pretty competitive. We charge $200 for 3D mapping, and $165 for piggy back tuning. This is on our Mustang dyno with a wideband. If you were to ask me personally, between Sean and the tuner at Blacktrax, I wouldnt be able to tell you who is better, we've never seen their tuning and like wise for them I'd assume.

As for the person saying we are "stupid" FFTEC not answering the phone, I dont know what to say. We are busy alot of the time, and we can not hear the phone over the dyno when there are cars on it. If you leave a message, I'm sure someone would have called you back. If no one did, then I'm sorry. If you simply called and did not leave a message, then there is notihng I could have done for you. We are open from 11:00 to 6:00 everyday except Sundays. We occasionally take days off to support the cars we sponser at the track.

If you would like to swing by, our address is posted below. If there is anytihng I can do for you otherwise, feel free to send me a PM or give me a call. Thanks guys, for all the support.
