    Hypertech is good for a few things, changing the temp the fans come on, changing shift points and if you change your gears out you can adjust for that as well. The power tune is a waste though.

    The long tubes+ORY+loudmouth exhaust is a love or hate thing. Its extremely obnoxiously LOUD and can be raspy but you will either love it or hate it. You are likely to attract law enforcement attention due to its high decibel level so keep that in mind.

    4-5 years ago when I was just starting out in the LS1 scene, I purchased a hypertech, it was one of my first mods, after a lid and catback. On the same day, I dynoed my vert with the hypertech tuning and then for the next pull I removed the hypertech tuning and dynoed a few HP higher without the hypertech tuning. Its not worth the $100 IMO. For the few good things it can accomplish, anyone with real tuning capabilities can do all that stuff and a lot more for you. I would invest the $100 in other areas.

    The longtube+ORY+LM setup will sound like a nascar at certain RPMS(3000+). At certain RPMS(2000-2500) it will sound very raspy and similar to several machine guns being shot off. M6 cars can control the RPMS better, so that would be in your favor. I liked it for about 6 months but got sick of it pretty fast. You might be one of the ones that loves it though.

    lmao. are you being serious when you say it sounds like a nascar?

    and from what your telling me about the tunner, i should drop that idea and buy a lid for the car instead along with a k&n air filter?

    Yes, drop the idea about the hypertech, and get a lid/filter

    I am serious about the nascar. At high RPMs it sounds really good and LOUD like a nascar. At lower RPMs don't be surprised if you drive through a parking lot and people are hitting the pavement because they think bullets are flying.

    If you were to get a programmer I like the Fuego Flash Tuner better. Sure it costs more, but extremely versatile.

    i went with the loudmouth and the quad tips. Sound is LOUD, I like it, but have to turn up the radio to hear over it. And watch out when you start it after setting for a few hours, it is REAL LOUD until it idles down. People in the hotels hate it I'm sure when I'm there and get up early in the AM. If you want to be heard so the heads turn your way, GO FOR IT!!

    I have LT's, ORY and a FLowmaster catback...which is OK for just driving back and forth to work. Then I hit the button for the electic cutout and get a nasty, screaming NASCAR like sound.......the car has a nice rumble to it and volume that would make even most Mustang drivers cringe! It was certainly a worthwhile $200. purchase and gives you a lot of flexibility (if you need it to be quiet and reserved, it can...but it's only about 4 seconds from loud and raunchy)!!

    With just LT's, no cats and magnaflow catback my car was annoying loud. At night where I live it is very quiet(small 14 house community), would wake people up leaving 6 houses away and we are all on about 3/4 to1 acre lots. I didn't like the raspy machine gun sound at times though, so cats are back on. May go X pipe and true duals now. I like my Predator handheld tuner though..went from 284 rwhp to 307.1 ...after longtubes I needed a tune.. added another 20+ rwhp just dialing in the A/F ratio with the handheld on the wideband(so was over 30rwhp hp gain with the LT's).
