Yes I did in fact state IMO, and I think you completely missed the point of my post. My point was and please correct me if I am wrong; With a reputable tuner you would be much better off having it dialed in for your car in your specific location/conditions/ft. sealevel/ ect, rather-than have a box email tune slapped on your car that may or may not be right given your specific conditions. Tunes are conditional, they are ever changing based on many factors which is why some people always feel that there is some tweaking to be done to make it perfect.
The point about people blowing up their cars was in regards to this thread its self. People flashing and unflashing the ECU not really knowing what they are doing just knowing that 'guy A's tune put out 10 more whp than 'guy B's and they have to do it because it makes monster JDM powah yo!
Lets think about it logistically as well. if you were a HUGE company, im talking about a big well known company in the game; would you be scraping by trying to sell e-tunes to make a buck or with your reputation on the line would you prefer to have the car in house and dyno, street, speed density tune it? I'm not here to sell in house tuning or any sort of etunes, but there is a reason companies like Hennessy, or Underground Racing, or Forged performance for that matter have everything done themselves and dont just 'trust' an e-tune bc somebody said it was safe.
We all want the best for our cars and again IMO E-tunes are FARRRR from the best option.
