Guys has anyone ever tried this course or heard of it? I always wanted to learn tuning, even if I just get the basics.

I've never heard of it. It looks like it's based out of Australia.

It's kinda similar to learning cooking online, though. The information is there, but you won't get much hands-on through the needed equipment. Besides, most of the tuning info you need is practically free here on the internet.
I got a new shell, just need to stop driving the DX so I can work on it.

I've got a filter for my mouth, it just isn't a good one.

if you haven't already watched their 6 free lessons i recommend watching those at least. they really helped me wrap my head around whats actually involved in tuning and the basics of what your trying to accomplish.

The objectives of tuning are transcendental. If you do nothing to hardware, then you just play with spark timing and fuel tables to reach ~14:1 AFR and complete burn. The real issue with learning tuning (besides the part where you need access to a dynomometer) is that you need to tune hardware as well to fit your application.

Look up "Exhaust theory" to get an idea. If you want to read about turbo fun-stuff, there's tons of info on https://turbobygarrett.com , even if they are trying to sell you a product.
