    You'll get random misfire codes with a cam install, that's normal. Your tuner should have went in and decensitized the engine misfire tables, or sometimes tuners disable them completely.

    Im F*** piss. i ask my firends for a ride and around 1,000rpm it doesnt move until 5,000rpm and feel like a 200 shot of nox. and found out the the tuner put no timing from 1,000 - 5,000rpm and idle at 15 timing. and getting 7mpg. WTF.

    you said yourself he wasn't able to get it tuned due to mechanical issues so I would guess your tune is far from being done and without the stall in there that car is never going to be 100% right.

    Well if I am reading this right, he never properly tuned it yet. Your o2s were bad.

    well, everything was re tune. the PCV Valve air hoses was broken and had to replace that to. car is very fast and runs nice from a stop. stock stall is ok. not a big deal for me on red lights, about the same but 150rpm higher. and the tuner says a trans cooler will be good. to keep the trans from slipping when hot.

    After the trans cooler, upgrade to an aftermarket converter. Like 3600-4400. I ran a 4000 before any power mods.

    i wanted to keep my 14mpg in the city and stall? i dont want to get one cause i want to keep my stock 10 bolts. next mod will be rear suspension and something else.
    i made 373rwhp 381rwtq on a bad tune. which was the first one, he set no timing and etc, so im thinking after the re tune, it runs better, pulls, doesnt stall, and i think im around 380rwhp 390rwtq with the new tune. plus i get 14mpg city & 18mpg hwy

    Maybe you should put a smaller cam in it if your worried about all that. Or just the stock one.

    14mpg is pretty low even with the stock stall. I ran a 3400 stall and still got 20 mpg around town and 26 highway. I was never really worried about the 10 bolt with that slush box in front. Wasn't like I had stickies on the back and was launching it 24-7.
    If you are really worried about gas mileage I probably would have installed a smaller camshaft.

    Wow, that's horrible mileage, I usually get 17mpg around town and 25mpg on the highway. I have a larger cam than you too, and the 4000 stall.
