I think the point I missed is that the Dyno tuner is going to get Very Close to perfect for your car; a "By Mail" tune is going to be an average, and nowhere near as close to 'perfect', and designed not to grenade your car under worst case conditions.

Not to say the Dyno tune is perfect, but you can Significantly adjust timing if you have wideband data and a dyno... with much Less Danger.

Oh I fully realize I'm leaving things on the table, but I'm hoping that the tune gets me most of the way there, then when I can afford a dyno tune, get the car scheduled up and take it in and leave with more power.
