    Default Tuners in the beckley area

    Are there any tuners in the Beckley area that know how to tune a 2013 mustang gt? I know if it has the wrong tune, the #8 cylinder will detonate. Are there any tuners around Beckley?

    I don't see you finding one that I'd trust in the beckley area.. your best bet might be a canned tune from one of the popular pros, they sell the tune on an SCT programmer most generally, upload and go.

    There is a place called Dirty Dirty Racing in Bedford, Va. The guy's name is Willie Lynch. Looks like he does email tunes and onsite dyno tuning on Mustangs. It's about 150 miles from you. Their number is 540-875-8722. https://www.facebook.com/pages/DIRTY...M/198008182482

    It's a little further, closer to 200 miles, but Rodeheaver's is up this way, and he definitely knows his stuff when it comes to Blue Ovals.

    Man, thanks guys. I would love to check those 2 out. thanks for the links. It is hard to really trust someone to tune a 5.0 because of the #8 failure due to bad tunes. I have been pondering bama for a while now. Thanks everyone!

    I can't vouch for the Lynch guy in VA. I've never seen any of his work first hand. Just found some positive reviews. I wouldn't be affraid, at all to send a 5.0 up to Tim though. I didn't link his site, but it's http://www.rodeheavershotrod.com/

    Get the canned tune for now, you'll be more than happy with any of the big name tuners. John Lund, BBR, JPC, Brenspeed, AED, Revolution, Bama the list can go on and on...When you add parts some of them offer free updates to the tunes if you buy parts from them. If you later have a power adder take it to someone and strap it down for a dyno tune.
