With all that you have done...a dyno burned chip would probably be the way to go. You could email joe at tricktuners and talk to him if you didnt wanna dyno tune.

with the head/cam work you have done, i would say you would benefit much more from a proper dyno tune. i would just skip any cheap shortcuts (i.e. a chip) and just get the tune.. or save for it if your car runs alright now.

if it's running really rough, i think your only solution would be to take it to a good dyno tuner. a good tuner will not only help it run like a dream... but he can pull ponies out of it that you didn't know were there. i took my 02 to a dyno after i did my cam work and i ended up with about 20 more hp than i went in there with. its totally worth it man.

i paid around $450. he had a standard flat rate (i forget what that was) then he charged by the hour for the actual tuning he did. a lot of places do it differently tho.

yeah probably not.. he probably just screwed around with the timing and said that he tuned it. well, a dyno gets a lot more done than that my friend. i hope you told him to piss off.
