2008 TALAS RL(32mm)

I've retrofitted this fork on my '05 FSR Stumpy and it works fairly well along with my PUSHED Fox Septune rear shock. Economic times being what they are, I have hesitated sending the fork into PUSH to work their magic to the tune of $378. Any suggestions out there as to something I can do or someone else I might try that might trick these out a bit?? Thanks.

whats wrong with the fork as is?

ill never own a fox fork again. you can tune manitou and marz forks at home, for just a few bucks in shims. RS's dual air offers a lot to dial in, topped with motion or mission control you get what you want out of it. 380 bucks for a tune is pretty crazy.
I just did a Craigslist purchase for the same fork (2008 32 Talas- 100-120-140), and just pulled it apart to inspect, and run fresh fluid. Done.

I would not have a fork "tuned" unless you encounter some issue with the performance. Also, it is very easy to be searching for something that just does not exist. There is always a compromise in suspension.

Should add- You have to know what you are looking for, if you do, then modification makes sense, but just sending something off without the slightest clue on what you need/want is probably not in your best interest.
