Dyno dperator familiar with Tune Boy

Does anyone know a dyno shop, in the Houston Tx area, where the operator is familiar with the tune boy engine management software?
If not Houston, where else in Tx?
I am not happy with the current maps available.

Thx for your help

I just had Tuneboy w/QS/CC installed by Ducati of Austin. They did an excellent job and the Duck seems to run much smoother (the QS is wickedly addicting!), but they don't have a dyno. While AF1 Racing down the street seems to be a reputable tuner (Mica there is especially popular on the Aprilia/Piaggio forums and was a helluva great guy when I had my BV500 there), I'm not sure if they do Tuneboy, and apparently they are not quite done relocating their dyno: Service ? AF1 RACING

I've reached out to their service manager for an ETA on this...

Meanwhile, did you find anything else? Not sure if there's more power to be had, but regardless, I'd love to see where my Multi is with its Arrow exhaust and K&N filter. Also want to make sure I'm near stoich at cruise since I'm adding the catalytic insert to my exhaust and would love to not reek of HC's when I walk in to my daily 7am operations meetings!

I was thinking about the "airbox mod" as well, though I've only seen in dyno'd for the 2010-2012 MTS. The filter is the same for my 2013, but not sure if the mod is also valid on the newer bikes.

Thanks!

I'd give AMS Ducati, in Dallas, a call. If they can do it, it'll be done right and would be worth the trip.

Ask for Jordan, he's the head Tech.

Forget the add-ons, go to Houston Superbike and have them dyno run your bike and update the ECU.

I believe you are on a good path to utilize the Tune Boy system if you want to get involved with the process of making your bike perform well, due to the owner hands on utility of the Tune Boy system.

On the other hand, as Jduke has said, if you want to pick a shop and trust them to make the alterations with minimal involvement, that's your choice.

It is extremely unlikely that any two dyno shops will tune your bike the same. It's just something to consider. A tune that seems great may be a very high achievement or be leaving some performance or drivability on the table. Safer tunes tend to reduce comebacks. Skill levels vary as does software functionality. To actually even know what to ask of a shop, to know if they are skilled, can be a challenge for a neophyte.

Being there and involved is essential. If they want you off at a distance, I would walk.
