Im hoping to get some advice and guidance on the easiest and most affordable way to start doing your own tuning? My car is a '99 2 valve.I just recently built my engine and the car has a kenne bell with the factory ECU. My current tuner isnt always available and everytime i do get ahold of him hes booked up for at least a month and its $200 everytime and even then shiftpoints may be off or minor things need adjustment then its more wait time.Any recommendations will be appreciated.

@badazz99 get a moates quarterhorse and start reading.

Wow,that is alot of information. Maybe i wont do my own tuning anytime soon..Thank you for all the info and i will definitely start looking into it cause i will eventually do my own tuning.Alot of what i see on this and other forums also talk about changing out the ECU for like a Holley efi system and that makes life alot easier cause it comes with everything you need and more options that the factory ecu can handle.Any opinion on that? I do hear it is pricy though.

Although a holley might be easier to tune and could be better. I'd honestly just stick with a stock ecu so you can keep factory wiring and functions as well. If you were to go to an aftermarket ecu, I feel like an ms3 pro might work better imo. It's a plug and play unit so you get to keep your wiring but you can still do your own tuning. In my eyes, holley is for like big boy cars making 1k hp and up while the ms3 is more for the car making moderate power but you want to tune it yourself. I think you youtuber "Lousers" put one in his new edge but he doesn't go into detail much.
