    I noticed you live in Ga and went to vengence racing for your tune. How is there service? I live in north ga. and have a stock car for now but I am going to do some bolt ons and wondered if a dyno tune would help me any over stock with just bolt ons like a lid and cat back. I have a a4 and would at least like to have the shift firmed up and rev limiter raised. How much do they get for a dyno tune?

    Vengeance is top notch with their service and quality. Pricing is a bit high but well worth it! If your interested PM me and ill let you know! If your going with bolt ons only for now I wouldnt worry too much about the tune tho...

    I have one of their cams in my car the VRx3 because it just happened to be exactly the gring I was going to have made with a custom grind. Great people that were very helpful and nice over the phone. Not to mention I could not be happier with how my cam is helping my LS1 run.

    02 LS1 Formula...what cam did you go with? Nice power numbers presuming you have stock heads (as those numbers would still be impressive with ported heads as well)!!

    Vengeance Racing is top notch. I concur that their pricing is a bit of a premium to many other shops, however the quality of their service far exceeds the price. When I first moved to Atlanta, I went to another shop for the work on my car and wasn't particularly pleased. Then I heard about Vengeance, gave Ron a call and haven't considered anyone else since. They do quality work, market quality products and from my experiences they've always kept my best interests in mind. If you're in North Georgia and you're looking for a shop to work on your car, you need to take a ride to Cumming!

    As for the dyno tune, give them a call and they'll quote you a price. For my cam swap, I paid a one time dyno tune fee (which may seem like a bit of an outlay at first), however they will update your tune for free if you decide to change your setup in the future. Given that I'm getting ready to do my head swap in the next few weeks, I'll get the benefit of an updated tune without any additional cost (at least that's how I understand it).

    I went with the LGMotorsports G5X1(228/232 on a 112) i do have the stock heads for now, we were all pretty impressed with the numbers especially since I had the heavy ass LS2 flywheel, and was running on 89 octane Ive said it before and ill say it again, Vengeance is TOP NOTCH!! Ron is an awesome guy, extremely personable, as well as helpful. Ide recommend them to anyone that can afford it, and if you cant, ive got another top notch guy thats a bit cheaper(works out of his home so overhead isnt an issue)

    Wow....great numbers with that setup. Vengeance's dyno is typically somewhat conservative as well!

    I have a very similar setup, however am about 25 HP and 12 ft/lbs TQ behind you...guess it's time for me to trash this Weiand intake the previous owner installed!
