yes they both are a quick search and you should be able to find them. I think both still do tuning on lt1's and have forgot more things than most know Either one will take care of you

during my research, there were several people who were not pleased with his tune. i understand not everyone can be pleased, but there were more then just a few who were not pleased. im not completely against going with him. just seeing what other options there are.

Solomon is not a bad option he did my tune but I have a 93 car obd1 sd and I couldn't ever het the car right but I was having other issues he blamed for idle issues kr etc. I'm sure he could get it running but I would seek out ed or Moe

Well I personally hand delivered my PCM to him for a update and he did it without the car being there.. So in a sense Im guessing he does..

Just got my lt1 supra done by Solomon 2-3weeks ago. I have ported heads and a cc306. I still need do some data logging and take advantage of his free fine tuning after the power tune. But the car runs fantastic and seems pretty close to where it should be as far as the tune goes.

Had two people tune my car over the years. Had Trifecta do my original bolt on tune and that was great. They quit doing lt1 tunes right after I got my cam and would not retune my car. Sent mine to pcm for less and the tune was not very good. This was years ago. I got a lt4 hotcam tune. Then a cc503 tune. Both were very meh. Mainly super lean while crusing with it in the 15-17:1 range. Wide open was spot on at 12:3. I think when I rebuild my engine if that ever happens as my car is leaking water on the inside from the rust around the windsheild and smells very modly inside. But I think I will haul mine up to tick performance when I do mine.

I had laptop and borrowed a cable from a friend. IMO the $120 power tune I got was well worth the money.
