my 2 cents. . . ."most" aftermarket standalones are very tunable (spark & fuel) and many do what high dollar motecs do. The trick is. . .the tunner! It takes time to tune all rpm ranges, all throttle stages, fuel enrichment at throttle input. For example, imagine you tune idle 850 rpm, you tune 1500 to 5000 rpm at 10% throttle every 500 rpm and you follow the curve for all other rpm ranges. Then you have to do the same for 1500 - 5000 rpm at 40% throttle...etc Then you do it all over again but at different engine loads (example going up a hill) etc....see where im getting at ? and not just fuel but timing too !!

Its somewhat of a black art to do this efficiently and quickly, much harder to do without a chassi dyno!

Most standalones will do what you need, but the tuner will make it work like you want!
theres nothing like the rear end squatdown of a turbo
