What is the best method for tuning of fox float 3 evolv . The method in the manual is of trial and error basis. Is there any better method to tune?

The key to any tuning method heavily relies on simulation and literature. Take this part out and the rest seems like "trial and error". 

I would suggest you model your car and run multiple simulations to arrive at a range of optimized coefficients for your shock. This range can be then tested on the car with some subjective feedback from the driver.
