ProTuner recommendations?

Hi guys,

Not sure if this is a no-no, but here's my issue: In the past I've used Pro Tuning Freaks to tune my 2008 E90. They did a great job and I have both an e50 and a 91 (FU california gas) tune. Currently PTF does not have the availability to do tunes. The shop is just finishing the install of Pure Stage 2 w/ inlets/outlets/n20 map sensor and I'm going to switch to MHD (was using Cobb AP v3) so I can go above 21psi. The shop is ~4hrs from my home so I'll be doing a significant amount of driving on whatever tune I can get into the car in short order. Currently the tank is ~2/3 full of E50. Anyways, here's my question:

Does anyone have a reasonably priced but good pro tuner that they could recommend that would be available on short notice to help me at bare minimum get a safe tune in the car so I can drive home. If necessary, I can probably do a couple logs after I pick up the car BEFORE driving home, but that's really up to the tuner's availability.

Thanks for any advice!

Why not flash back to stock or a stage 1 tune? If you just want to get home.

Thanks!

Thanks for the responses guys! Ended up going with Twisted Tuning. Going to get an E50 base tune to get me home then log that up to whatever my HPFP can handle then throw in a tank of 91 to get an "I don't want to plan my trip around E85 stations" tune hehe

Looking forward to feeling some extra power out of the Pure Stage 2s that are going on w/ inlets/outlets

I believe he can do either or, he was just one of the few who did both jb4/mhd. I think thats the reason i went that route

Use the Cobb AP and get a tune from Brentuning.

The problem with using the Cobb is that with the Stage 2 turbos I wouldn't be able to go above ~21psi which sorta defeats the purpose of having the upgraded turbos.. thanks for the advice though
