    Well I've gotten up to the point where I'm ready to take my first datalog and I thought I'd take the time to document the process so far.

    So since renting a tactrix from dynotronics deposit cost as much as buying one I just ordered a OP 2.0 from the tactrix website. Now I am really torn on who to get tuned by. I believe dynotronics is cheaper than OV but I just dont know who to go with.

    Im sure you guys can answer this very quickly. I was just told today by a mechanic that i HAVE to tune my ECU because I have a CS SRI and MazdaSpeed 3 exhaust. He says if i don't i run the risk of running to lean and damaging the engine. Is this true? I was a previous owner of a 93 Mustang 5.0...
