    With your mod's, you gain some HP and lose zero MPG. Hes running a special right now, 100 bucks gets you a mail order. Jump on it now if your going to.

    Sorry, should have asked this earlier. Is it a chip you install? John

    With your mods, he wont be doing anything drastic. Just picking little areas up where you were lacking. Shouldnt lose any MPG with just a basic tune.

    To answer your question on what you would get from your tune is not an exact answer every car is different and certain tunes ive heard people get 10rwhp all the way up to 30rwhp with minor bolt ons. With frost you can feel good about getting the tune from him because he is well respected and knows what he is exactly doing especially with our cars. You should be able to pull atleast 12-15 rwhp more then what you have now with a tune from Frost. Gas mileage should not change at all and in some cases people have reported better MPG but thats very hard to target since there are many factors to your MPG. I think even with my mods the tune was well worth it and without the tune i would not have gotten the RWHP and RWTQ numbers i did, Thanks to Frost.

    I understand that is a loaded question. Thanks for the info. How long does it take for him to get to a project (not including shipping) as I don't have the other Z28 out and this is my dd. Again, thanks peoples

    he usually has it for day then seds it back to u, mine was gone a week but
    I didnt pay for faster shipping. Just do it.
    Have a blessed Day.
