Good luck man, I've been wondering the same thing for a while but haven't found any yet. I guess I'm going to take my car to rapid motorsports in Reading PA when I need to get it tuned. I have heard nothing but good things about them, but it's a pretty long drive. The joys of living in WV

You could try getting HPtuners. I got mine for $350 out of the parts for sale section on here. Its been the best $350 I've spent on my car so far. You can scan and monitor everything your car is doing and tune virtually every aspect of it. They have a great site with lots of tech support to help you out and tunes from other people's cars that you can download.
