    He would not need one for that low of a stall, a friend of mine installed a 2800 stall in a 02 Z28, and left the computer stock settings, he has no troubles whatsoever.

    I have a Y3000 with 3.73's, and I needed a tune bad.

    I had the same problem, put a vig 3200/LT's/ORY/tune for cut out open, and thought I was slower as well, of course my 2.73's don't help. This was all done in August and I have gotten used to the stall being quite a bit looser than stock, but sometimes it still feels slower and other times it feels quite a bit faster. For example I noticed with the cooler air now it runs pretty hard especially from a 30mph punch, harder than it ever has before but sometimes it does feels slower.

    Really the only way to find out is to hit the track and it looks like I won't be able to get out this year anymore I will just have wait until spring.
