Anyone know if a good dyno tune is better for the life of the motor over the stock tune? I'm talking a basic engine safe tune with the awd dyno and hp tuners. I'd like to see a better idle, a little more power, and a little better gas mileage. I don't race it.

Also is there a way to look up the closest awd dyno to my location?

Yes a tune will fix all that and add to trans life as well. I'm sure someone around here will chime in to the closest AWD dyno in your area.

A good street tune will work just fine. The tuner makes more of a difference than the type of tune. I personally have a street tune.

Thanks for the replies. I kinda wanted to do the dyno because they say every car is different. Hopefully I got to someone who knows what they are doing.

I think the main advantage of the dyno is the ability to safely run WOT pulls...and do them consistently back to back as adjustments are made. I'm not sure about others, but doing consistent 140mph runs on a safe road is not easily done where I live.

Agreed, but it seemed to me that the original poster was looking for a daily driver / efficient engine tune and not a full out race tune. With a street tune you can vary the way you drive from easy to WOT and validate all driving modes.

I do it all the time. 130mph is enough

I prefer both dyno and street - my truck is only street tuned and runs great.
