    whatever you do DO NOT get a handheld tuner. Those things barley do anything. If ur still interseted, get EFIlive, HPtuners, or LS1 edit. These programs can actually tune ur car unlike the handheld one. If not, find and ask some1 with the same year car and ask them to hook u up.

    I disagree with that...I have a predator and it does a lot for a handheld. It's one of the few that you can adjust the fuel and timing...along with delete certain DTC's like rear o2's and air/egr. Vinci is also a good one and does about the same as the predator. But I do agree that it is limited compared to hptuners, ls1edit...etc.

    If you have a decent amount of money ($600+ and already have a laptop) then definatly get hptuners....or get a dyno tune (usually $500+) when you get some decent mods. A predator costs $400 but sometimes our sponsers here have some good deals on them....IMO a pred/vinci is good for a bolt-on car.

    not all handhelds are created equal anymore. i use the vinci/crane tuner. picked up .2 and 1.4 mph using the hiperf/stock cam tune back when i had a SLP airlid on the car. same day back to back run.
