    That's impressive. I hope I can get that kind of service when I go to have my car tuned.

    He even called to see how I made out on my 3.5 hour trip home and to see what I thought of the tune and if I thought it needed any improvements.

    Wow sorry for the late reply. I wasn't following this thread. I was happy with it. You can do the same with it as you can with the handheld......you just have more versatility with the handheld especially the xcal 3.

    Adam is meticulous with his work, he doesn't stop until the car runs absolutely perfect. He's done several of mine and they run better than a stock car off the production line. Half the time he picks up on minor details that I don't notice. He threw a base tune together for the Cougar for me so I can drive it and it runs good now, I can't wait to spend some time getting it really dialed in and see what kinda power it'll put to the wheels...

    Adam Is a Great Guy. I never Met Him But He is Willing to see Me and the Tour Whenever He Comes Down to NC and Use his friends Dyno and Fit Me in ...Thats an Ok Guy in My book. Plus I got alot of Positive feedback on his tuning abilities.

    Car: 2000 SVT
    List Of Mods:
    3L shortblock, 3L PnP heads (Kinger), SVT intakes/cams, MSDS headers, BAT catted Y pipe, Borla Catback, stock injectors (19#), no EGR, no downstream o2's
    How it was tuned: Mail order from warmonger (early Nautilus days) flashed via Xcal2. Some datalogging and tweaks made.

    Happy with this tune, I've been running it for several years - no CEL. Within the next year or two I plan on getting a few more things buttoned up on the car and getting a dyno tune. Current tune is rather conservative and runs rich (wideband in car). Made 214whp, I think the car can easily make 230-240whp.


    Car: 99 Cougar 2.5L mtx
    List Of Mods:
    00 SVT engine from car above, stock injectors (17#), gutted precats, MSDS y-pipe
    How it was tuned: Tune loaded on SCT chip by Nautilus performance (chip was purchased on CEG used). Chip has a 8 position switch to choose between tunes. 0-87 octane, 1-93 octane, 4-stock

    Satisfied with these tunes, but not overly thrilled either. Never had this car dynoed but it moves alright and doesn't have any CEL's. Seems to ping under heavy load in warm conditions if I'm using the regular tune. Maybe that has more to do with the SVT 2.5L compression though, not sure.
