WA dyno tuner + tranny tune?

Before I asked for just a cheap dyno tune - but who has been to a local tuner that can tune our engine & tranny?

Just got the pacesetters, time to sell the cortex and man up!

Call Trifecta Performance up, they don't have a dyno but he travels out to a dyno to tune the car onsite. $300 bucks for his time plus dyno time. So about 400 - 500 dollars.

Said he's done several G8s v6, GXP and GTs. Also provides for 200 bucks (when needed) a cable to connect the laptop up for flashing back and forth between stock and new tune for obvious reasons. :-)

He made a few recommendations about the tranny and torque management that I liked. Said he could control Torque management differently for upshifting and downshifting so I don't get that lame a$$ surging like with the Cortex when downshifting.
