    I was told I dont need a tune as long as I run cats, as far as emissions go. Should have the LT's in by next week.

    as far as emission your right more then likely you wont need a tune at all. Performance wise it just helps you get a bit more power from the mods you have on your car. I did notice yesterday going home from work now when im low in the rpms 2nd gear and bog it a bit the tires spin out big time when it gets up in the rpms compared to before where you might get a slight chirp once the rpms climb. So im noticing the power gains more and more that i drive it but the tune will hopefully pull a bit more power out of the mods ive done.

    My headers did not hit at all, its suggested to do it since your already there removing the headers. The fitment will be better but i had no issues with them hitting anything other then my SFC's and that was because of the way the SFC's where welded in i had the same problem with my stock ypipe hitting the SFC's as well. I just put a bushing in between the Ypipe and the SFC for now till i figure out a more permanent fix. I was suprised how quick and smooth the install went the mechanic thought the fitment was excellent and he was suprised.

    Well as im driving home i notice that the ypipe is kinda banging the SFC so i look underneath when i get home and the rubber bushing is gone lol. So i guess it either melted away or just fell off. Gotta find another fix it option, i think im gonna have to heat the SFC and bend it slightly just a few centimeters.

    ive hammered it a bit because at the time i didnt have any other option but im gonna have to take it to a muffler shop and have them pull it off and bend it a little. It just needs a few centimeters not much.

    After i get a tune and SSRA put on the only other mod i will be doing is Nitrous Dry 100 shot most likely. My plugs have already been changed to NGK TR6's and once i save up some more money i will install that. Does it make a big difference after you get a tune with LT's?

    I never ran mine w/o a tune so I don't know, my car vs. a similar car w/o tune did pull ahead especially up top in a race.
