    Sort of dissapointing really...

    went to the Dyno yesterday and this time... it was running fine...and was ready for war...

    well as it turns out... I desperately need a Tune... and what not...

    only managed... 280whp and 300wtq... it being Auto. I wasn't able to see the dyno #'s bellow 4000rpm ... but the TQ was at it's peak at an estimated 310wtq... wroughly...

    I've got, a SLP intake w/ KN... Free Mods exept for the TB ones... and no CAT's... (not by choice)...

    reason why it was so dissapointing was because my Bud's Mach1... with a Tune and Intake/X-Pipe... managed 297whp and 311wtq ...

    heavy air, those numbers will go up slightly on a drier day but you still need a tune

    yeah, I just don't know what kinda tune to go with!...

    I'm thinking DiabloSport, but I know I'll outgrow it eventually... probably not soon though....

    But I'd also like to have a more detalied Tunning system like the HPTunner... but I don't have that kinda of money...

    Honestly at the rate I'm going... I'll be lucky to even be able to afford a Tunner... let alone more mods... LOL

    but seriously... I want full bolt-ons first... also Gears... and posibly a shiftkit... before I do anything... drastic...

    well...the fact of the matter is... it'll easilly be a year before I get even Exhaust... let alone Headers...

    I tried to get it to handle better first...before I tried for power... it was probably a mistake... but I just can't stand a car that handles like a SUV...

    hold off on the tune then, on a drier/cooler day you could see up to 285

    Like it or not, EFIL has the same. You don't really have to worry with it at all if you are just tuning a few of your own cars; you get 8 credits up front.

    I've been talking with a dude(owns a C5 Z06 - Cammed)... who's son(owns a 600++whp LT1 S/C Camaro) ... professionaly tunes cars here... especializes... in F-body's and Vetts... it seems to me like he's the perfect candidate for me... to give me a full dyno Tune... once my exhaust gets here... (still in the mail)... and posibly some headers...
