Dinan Tune

I saw that the Dinan Stage 1 tune is half off ($319.50) even at that price s it really worth it?




I was thinking of adding the Sprint Booster but this tune says it improve throttle response so maybe a better all around tune/deal.


Any thoughts?

It's a soft tune, I have the Stage 3 and that's soft also. I'd say save the money and go with either (FAMS, EVOLVE, ESS) or something along that lines. I'll be adding my EVOLVE this summer.

I had the Dinan Stage I tune for years. It is a soft tune, middle of the road tune.

I switched to a FAMS tune about 9000 miles ago.

That would be great! However I'm going to pass on that, I have a Dinan tune, but I plan to install my new tune I have tucked away. It's the best tune out there for the parts I have. As you know I recently just picked up a set of your LTH and with that new tune, I think I'll be set. I got the tune a few years back and never had time to install it, I can say the guy who sold it to me was very helpful, if you need or want his info PM ( Mark@Evolve ) ask for the Evolve-R or the Evolve Alpha N Tune.


Thanks 3X over Mark!

hey - trust me I got FAM tune because I wanted to run it - when I bought it I was running a Eurocharged NA Tune and Pulley plus Mods - Jims tune which tweaked the throttle response was high on my list when it came out but then I got busy and several months went by more like 5 or 6 - then I got the SC kit added as well - so too busy to load turned into no longer will work -

From everything I read this is one of the best NA tunes you can get and all the mod adds later on are free -

Man I got a closet full of E60 parts -
