custom tune for vf 570 kit

i bought and installed this kit on my car and all is well, althought im having doubts about the longevity of my motor with the VF tune itself, can anyone name some alternate tuning companies that could accomodate my set up?

OP, you're close enough that you could make the ~4 plus hour drive yourself, this way Frank can tune it on his dyno instead of you trying to setup a remote tune.

I would first call Mike at Maximum PSI in NJ, they use Nick G. (TT Turbo) for All of their dyno tuning. Second I'd call Frank Smith at TTFS & consider the much longer drive.

What do you base this statement on besides the current tune that you got from him? Have you been tuned by some of the other great tuning companies and then have experienced problems, or is this the one and only tune you have ever gotten.

custom tune for vf 570 kit

My car was not making full boost so I took the trip to Frank once he diagnosed the reason why I was not making full boost was because my supercharged bracket couldn't hold the boost he ordered the bracket for me and a couple of hardware that I need it for the upgrade. He install The bracket fixed the issue even show me the invoice that active sent to him and charge me the same price on the invoice from active not too many people are genuine and do that! just charge me for the labor. Obviously he has to make money for the shop but once you meet him you will understand he loves doing what he does. he's not here to rip you off like a lot of these other shops do! That's my experience! Hope it will help some one else

I think that's a good story and i am happy for you.

Here's what i'm getting to; if i never ever ate a hamburger before and the went to Burger King for my first and Only burger, i too might think it's the best burger in the world.
