Best Tuner for a 2004 Lightning?

I have a stock 2004 Lightning and want to add some basic tuning and a new blower pulley and brakes.

Planning to do some week end autocrossing with the truck

What is the best tuner to buy and where should I buy it from?

thanks

MarauderPU

...but back in the day, JJ at Woodbine Motorsports JJ at WMS was one of the top names along with JDM JDM Engineering - Ford Specialist

Check out LightningRodder.com SvtPerformance.com, and NLOC.net and see what the prevailing attitude is for the top of the line tuners.

PS - I love to autocross!

I honestly don't.

Plus, I don't ever turn tail and run. Although, I can't tell if you meant that in a humorous manner, or serious.

Stoffer, you must have me confused with someone else, brother.

Which board is the thread posted on? NLOC or SVT P? I'm on very good terms with both Sid (Travis) and Big D (Dwight).

I've never caused a problem on any of the Lightning boards like you're intimating, and then left the forum.
