Trifecta LSJ Rant

I am frustrated about the whole thing so this seemed like the place to go.

About 6 months ago, I bought a repossessed broken Ion Redline from my bank for 800 bucks. Crank pulley was weirdly off and the plastic oil filter cap was sitting in the engine bay so it didn't run. I fixed it all up and replaced everything, including the failing clutch pedal and realized it had some go fast parts on it. ZZP shorty header with a catted downpipe, dual pass, K&N intake, smaller pulley and 42lb injectors. With how the car was treated, I wanted to make sure that when I sold it, I knew the car was okay so I threw in some 60lb injectors and a 2.7in pulley that I had and sent off the ECU to ZZP to tune. I know it's not the best tune but it is cheap and I know it will be reliable. ZZP contacts me and tells me it's been locked by an outside tuner, most likely Trifecta. I contact Trifecta as a customer (I have their tune for my LNF) and they tell me they can send a stock tune no problem. Well it's been 25 days and I have yet to hear anything back, even with me messaging them again on it. I had issues before with them taking forever sending me updated MAP's but now my car has been sitting for almost a month. ZZP sells a new ECU for 150 so i might just go that round but damn Trifecta really sucks sometimes.

I had a trifecta tune years ago and sent them logs to tweak it and they said it was ok. I then went to a remote tuner using hpt and it was night an day different. They are decent at canned tunes but are horrible past that.

Are there any good remote tuners here? I want the best for my LNF but the shop down the road from me that uses HPTuners is so hard to get a hold of and lead times for dyno tunes are like 4 weeks out.

I am tuned by 09CobaltSS1 on here or Jon Mic on Facebook and can't say 1 bad thing about him. Have been very satisfied with both the 93 and e47 tunes he has done.
I've also heard good things about Kevin Moyer or kmo43 on here.
