no, they just use the dyno to gauge the diff between before and after, if they are going to tune, or creat maps, they'll use a program on their laptop/computer or whatever....sorry i misunderstood your question the first time

So they use whatever program they got and can put it into my accessprot or just put in on the car with the stage 2 map that is already downloaded on my ecu?

Exactly what Jason said.

I believe the protuner is a more advance copy of Street Tuner, and is unavailibe to the public. Only specific DynoTuners can purchase it from Cobb, and it is more detailed the the Street Tuner.

The Tuners tune you ECU, then they throw it on the dyno to see if their changes has actually done any increase in horsepower / torque. Im intrested to see exactly how it works once I get mine protuned

just guessing, i don't know a whole lot about the ap right now, i'm sure they'll make their own custom map and load it into your car using the ap....timmy knows alot more about it than i do...

Well thats the thing,

Some shops such as the one you posted did not purchased the Protuner from Cobb, However they can still tune your accessport if you purchase the Street Tuner.

In my opinion, I would look for a shop that can actulaly protune. I think they run about 500$ Where as the software runs from 300-400$ + when they tune you will add up more then that.


Im still researching it myself, and could be wrong, but I know its in those ball park ranges.
