Default Maybe opening a can of worms but.......

Iíve been nonexistent on the forum for several years now. So Iím behind the times.
But Iím restarting a tow rig build I had started a few years ago and it got put on the back burner due to life happening.
Iíve got a pile of new parts on the shelf from when I started the build and Iím in the process of getting back to it.
My question is, is MTW not a thing of this world anymore?

I have a brand new in the box stage 1 that Iím putting on the truck and Iím gonna need tunes to make it play nice with my 155/30s, I was going to call them and ask who they recommended to tune that combo but apparently Iím behind the times and the place doesnít exist anymore??? What did I miss?

The EPA took a few tuners out permanently. There's still some really good tuners left though.

Not sure if Adrian with MTW is still around... i have heard rumor he is still building stuff but has taken himself off the internet.

But you should not need any specific fancy tuning for the turbo. Any custom SCT tune writer should be able to get you taken care of.

The EPA destroyed everyone (as we knew them). One company that comes to mind is bullydog (now owned by sct). A few custom programmers went belly up. The good programmers are still with us, but, simply, don't do "illegal programming" anymore.
Emission compliance is all we get now. If you are ******d, live with the check engine light.... If you don't like that idea, you can get a BPD cooler, run proper coolant and be solid. There's really not anything wrong with the egr system (by design), it just plugs up and leaks (destroying the motor of course), but most of the problems with this system have been identified and are addressable.
Anywho, don't help destroy businesses. Build a good motor and move on.
