Default Whats the best tuning option?

So, I have a new to me 2000 ZR2, and I'm ready to strap 33's to it, and add some minor engine mods to compensate for turning bigger tires. Is the best way to get bang for your buck Wait4Me performance OR Black Bear Performance OR PCM for less? Who has had experience with the above companies? Good experiences or bad? Or should I just find a tuner/programmer? If I get a tuner, like a Hypertech Energy Power Programmer, can I achieve different levels of tune, or is at all or nothing deal, like a PCM reprogram? Any input would be great. I use my blaZeR for a daily winter driver (MN) and a weekend off-roader and it's my fun vehicle, and I'm just looking to get the most fun out of it I can.

Well, I will stray away from the search answer, all though it is your best friend lol. I used blackbear and I love the tune. Justin is a great guy who really knows what he is doing. You will find that when people are happy with there tune, whoever did it will always be "there guy" and they are the best and everyone else sucks. Of course that's not true, just human nature.
Having said that, you will never be able to duplicate the results of a professional tune with a DIY handheld tuner. Good luck with the searches!

The Eagan area. I really enjoy the southern suburbs. Just wish any wheeling destinations weren't 3+ hours away, that really sucks. Wanna help me build a new off-road park somewhere between the cities and Rochester?

I just got a PCM programmed from PCM4Less with the tranny shift kit.

Dang Blazer lays black marks as long as you hold the pedal down. He does good work.

He's fast too. Shipped the PCM all the way to the other side of the planet pretty fast.
