Found this guy selling pre tuned ECM's on eBay..
Anyone work with him before and know if the tunes are any good??

I haven't heard of him.. but it's worth noting that you'll have to send him your ECU to tune, you won't be able to buy a pre-tuned one for a 9-3 (T8 ECU).

You can only do this with cars that use the T7 ECU (9-5, older shape 9-3).

I don't see anywhere that says he tunes T8.....

Ah, thanks.. You guys know of anyone I can drive my car to near indiana? I rather drive my car to the tuner then live without my car for a few weeks..

Brew City Boost is in Milwaukee. I'd say that is the closest. Not a whole lot of tuners to chose from.

rabbit, bsr, vtuner, nordic, maptun and there is another dude posting on the classifieds here.

While not a dozen, enough options for a defunct brand. Not bad IMO, especially 5 years ago when I first got mine, there was only BSR and Nordic

This is a Tech II diagnostic knock off and has nothing to do with tunes.

He does Trionic tunes as his name (saabtunerscott) implies:

You're bidding on a replacement ECU for your Saab 9-3 or 9-5 vehicle. Check compatibility in this posting for models available. If you've got a damaged or defective ECU I can program and deliver you a replacement factory ECU with the latest updates. Don't bother buying a used one that will need to have expensive dealer work to get it paired to your car.

Please note that this auction is for a stock configuration. If you'd like to add general performance enhancements please see my other listing.

Here is one of his other listings ( Note it is for T7. Here is one ( for T5 ECUs that is pre-programmed by him to permit the switch to a T7 boost pressure control valve. It appears he does NOT tune for T8 as I can find no listing where he offers T8 upgrades.

YUP; bonafide tuners already posted. If you must lol

You are correct, his other stuff for is staged tuning for much more money.

Find a shop that works out of a brick and mortar like Vtuner or MikeB and have been know members of the community for some years.

I'll personally vouch for having met Brian of Vtuner and Mike B and have had some nice conversations with Nick T and John Z.
