malone is liek $300 lol. not every tune has UM prices

Tunes need an intake to take advantage. So add that on top of your purchase.

Yes necessarily. Without better airflow enjoy your useless tune.

Doesn't an SRI + UM tune get you to 7500 rpm redline?

But that's not paying 6-700 for a tune that's paying 200ish for an intake and 250-350 for a tune. And most people that are interested i. Getting a tune more than likely already have an intake.

I was always wondering if UM does custom tuning, as in if you can drive down to their shop and throw your car on a dyno instead of mailing the ecu. For example what if you have an SRI, headers, test pipe and an exhaust maybe injectors and a fuel pump. I'm sure the tune will be different than if you just had an SRI? no?

But what about rev-hang? I heard a tune will generally help.

I'm interested as well. Since this thread is over 3 years old there must be some peeps with experience with this product.
