I'm going to jump in here simply to correct the record as I know it. Before I dyno'd and reviewed the AA ECU tune, I asked a lot of question. There are some in this thread who have implied (or stated as fact) that AA does not engage is custom tunes. That assumption (or statement) is completely false. At any customer's request, AA will start with their "shelf tune" and customize it for the customer's situation. That's exactly what they did for me. I told them which modifications I had on the car, and which modification I was going to get next, and they gave me a tune that was custom tailored to those requirements. I would say those results spoke for themselves: 28hp, and 22 ft/lbs torque gained. For me, those results were stunning, and the car drove so much more responsive.

I have no interest in taking sides here because both companies provide very fine products. My only interest in posting, was to correct the misinformation I saw. I thoroughly enjoyed my AA ECU tune while I had it; but as many of you know, the stroker motor comes with its own ECU tune and the AA software is no longer in my ECU.

BTW, I fixed the dyno records to reflect your Encore X-Pipe.
