Where does everyone get there tuning done?

I have a 93 Honda Prelude Si with a h23a1. I am boosting it this fall and I am looking to use crome pro, or hondata s300. I have asked autolab and I know that they don't tune crome, and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get my car tuned with crome at.

The reason I want to use crome is because it is much cheaper than hondata s300. Autolab wants $1100 for hondata and a street tune.

I know Hondata is much more reputable brand but I've heard good things about crome, and I'm not really made of money lol. Heres my setup if anyone is interested.

What EVERYONE is going to say, is that you should've gone with hondata/haltech or another standalone that you KNOW people locally can tune....

edit: maybe seen can work with something

I am going to pm him. I will most likely have to end up going with hondata, I just want to explore my options first.

I would definitely go with S300 over anything else stock ECU related for a Honda. Above that, AEM or Autronic.

That $1100 for the S300 w/ install and tune is not bad at all, considering the S300 w/ a chipped ECU is $800 right there.

I hope you can honestly do that for $5000, but I think it will probably end up being more. Probably at least 15% more than you've accoutned for. There is always unforseen cost that will bite your ass in the end.

total cost of my p28 socketed w/ s300 was around a $900 with cost of socketing and shipping

so $1100 with a tune sounds like a deal

Oh I already know lol!! I know I will have to get some coupler reducers that don't come with the piping kit, and I may go ahead and do a half radiator conversion while I'm taking out my ac.

I had one on my other prelude and I didn't need one worked fine without that.
whatever floats your boat, I am pretty sure you will need a regulator, you are supposed to turn up the fuel pressure 1 psi for every psi of boost you will run

The stock FPR will be just fine with a Walbro 255. As far as "turning the fuel pressure up with boost", what you mean to say is, that fuel pressure needs to rise with boost, which it will on a stock Honda FPR. Until you go bigger than a Walbro 255, there is no need to get a new FPR.

lacking means, not enough, or short of. used in a sentence:

John was lacking the ability to properly tune his car, which is why he blew it up.

Hahahahahaha that was good man good way to use it in a sentence.

Anyways the guy said that my list was lacking. So I wanted to know what he thought it may be lacking. Sorry if I didn't make it crystal clear!!
