Default Crunch Time, Getting the Frankenford Tuned

Any suggestions from anyone LOCAL for tuning? (1993 Mustang Driveline essentially)

Right now I plan on bringing the car up to DynoTune MP up in woodstock as they come highly recommended, and I've talked to Tim a couple of times from there.

That is QUITE a drive, and I may trailer the car up there once I have everything intact on the bimmer, but I'm curious if anyone has dealt with any mail-order places that they highly recommend, and/or any one else that is local and known for dynotuning OBD1 SBFs.

I will not bring my car to Kurgan, or anyone that deals with Kurgan, as he made himself out to be a prick to me (long story, he didn't want my money and was rude about it).

I thought they were more 'known' for modular, and OBD2 tuning.

I'd probably run 'fine' as it sits once I have the correct MAF, but I don't want 'fine', I want 'Sweet Baby Moses' fast.

What are you planning on using to tune it? SCT chip?
