Default Shop for tuning with Anderson PMS

Is there a preferred shop to get a dyno tune that will use the PMS system I have? I'm not very confident with my ability to tune the car and it came with the PMS system.

Most places I've read up on seem to use chips to tune with. Anywhere in the DFW area is fine I'm about 100 miles northeast of Dallas and no matter what it will be a drive.

Car is an 89 with a vortech v-3 si, Dart pro-1 heads, and bbk ssi intake. Just don't want to mess it up we've already melted out the heads between 2 cylinders and had to have them fixed, not looking to repeat that mistake.

Thanks

Does Anderson recommend anyone? Can it be tuned online, remotely?

As far as I know remote tuning isn't possible, but I'm not certain. I'm awaiting a reply from Anderson on recommendations hopefully they'll give some good information.

I don't know of anyone that works with it anymore. Might check with truestreet in McKinney or hpp in lewisville. They would be your best shot.

It could be tuned remotely. But I can appreciate reluctance to do it.

I'll give those places a call and see if they are willing to mess with.

If remote tuning is possible and capable I'm willing to use it I just am unfamiliar with this aspect of the car hobby. This is the first car I've messed with that was fuel injected and the first I've had that's supercharged.

Thanks for the responses so far, all help is appreciated.

Gearheads is the last one I'm waiting to hear back from. I've called all the other shops around I could find and none wanted to touch the PMS.

I guess I'm at a point of learning to do it myself or selling the system and taking it to a shop to have a tune done. I'm mostly concerned with street manners I'd hate to get tired of the car due to annoying things that happen while trying to enjoy a drive.

Thanks for the suggestions and if there anything else I should consider the information is appreciated.

It's + or minus fuel and spark. It isn't as good a lot of other set ups, but pretty simple. I always had issue with idle fuel. Still have one somewhere. Full throttle was pretty easy.

It has 42lb injectors and the maf is an abaco dbx, I believe the pump is larger than stock but I'm not certain. I've got a 340lph pump to put in it but haven't. The fuel rails and regulator are bbk as well.

I also have the inter acq data logging and tuning software that goes with the pms.

Ditch the PMS and let an experienced tuner use a chip. I was using the PMS back when it was called a Crane Interceptor and it is very limited and not worth the headache.

The tuning problem you are describing is caused mostly by ignition timing and that is easy to change in the PMS. You just need a timing curve suited to forced induction vs the NA timing curve I believe you are running now. Timing is a bigger deal then being a bit lean or a ton rich.

I say ditch that PMS and the air meter and use a 05' up style meter with a chip on a stock ECU.My SSP makes 556/598 with 60lbs injectors and a slot style meter and runs great. Andy @ Prime tuning can do it for sure and so can many other shops with that basic setup.

That seems to be the general thought on what my best bet will be. Looks like I'll have to start trying to sell things off and get another maf and take it in for a tune.

I've tried to do everything else correct on the car the first time there's no need to start cheapie out this far into it and shoot myself in the foot.

Thanks all for the thoughts and opinions they're all appreciated.
