You will not need a tune for a stall under 3K, however it is a complete waste of money.
Go with a 3600 and be done with it.

What do they do as far as the tune goes when you install the bigger converters?

I believe they set the idle higher depending on the outer diameter of the new converter, adjust the shift points and line pressure. I am sure there are other aspects that need attention, I am not aware of everything that it intails.

3600-3800 for track and still be pretty good daily driver. if you want track only get 4200

A tune will also make it a little tighter taking off. Before the tune it would slip a whole lot more than afterwards. Makes taking off lightly much easier. Don't know technically what they did I just know it works alot better tuned.My Toy 00 Z28 1SC A4 - MS3 cam with supporting valvetrain, Milled LS6 heads, LS7 lifters, , ARP rod and mains, All free mods, pacesetters, True duals, moser 9 with 4.11's and Detroit Locker, Vig 3600 tuned, tubular SFC,adj PHR, LCA, adj TA, PHR reloc, LCA reloc. all with poly bushings, ZR1's and Nitto DR's (315).

You should also consider a TransGo shift kit, it will beef up the transmission to accept the greater demands put on it.
If your vehicle is an 01 and 02 model, a flexplate upgrade would be in order.

Hey, thanks guys for all your input. I put a b&m transpak in it already, and the torque management turned off with my crane powermax tuner. Thinking about going with the fuddle 3600, there warranty sounds really good. Thanks again!
