    What to do before Dyno Tune???

    Trying to get as much stuff done before I have my car dyno tuned and want everyones thoughts that care to share.
    The car.... 02 WS6/M6 with 38k miles. Has factory LS6 Intake

    The mods... and these are all fresh virtually no miles.

    1..Rapid Dominator 2 Series Cam Kit
    231/239 on a 113 w/ 0.617/0.624
    Chrome Moly Pushrods, Manley Dual Springs, Manley Ti Retainers, Manley Steel Spring Seats and new GM valve seals.

    2.. GM HD Timing chain set was installed
    3.. Rapid Ported LS6 oil pump
    4.. Fuel filter
    5.. Oil change with Mobil 1 and new filter
    6.. Street tuning

    Other work done...
    Pace Setter LT's
    Pace Setter ORY (no cats)
    Magnaflow Catback
    K&N
    SLP Lid
    SLP MAF

    I was going to put NGK TR5 plugs in before the tune.
    I also am going to put in new 02 sensors.
    It has factory plug wires... should I replace these? They look fine, like I said 38k miles.
    Installing a 160 Thermostat.

    So what does everyone think? I dont want to have to keep going back spending money to retune for little stuff added later. Thanks for all your help! Just want to say Thank-You to all the help provided from the members on this site allready! Its a great place to hang!

    i'd clean the maf and put a paper filter back in... don't want to waste $ on a dyno tune to have oil get on your MAF and screw stuff up...

    I think you have everything in order. Spaz's comment about the K&N should be taken as "the oiled K&N filter is known to get oil on the MAF over time and can cause your MAF to read improperly".

    Thanks Jon... I had never thought about that happening before. It makes perfect sense though. I will be removing it for the dyno tune and give the MAF a quick clean before the dyno tune session. Thanks!

    You might want to ditch the K&N and get an Amsoil filter too. The main issue with K&N really only comes in when people clean them and then re-oil them and too much oil is used. They have been known to gunk up the MAF then, which is something you don't want happening.

    the worst part is the oil gets in the U shapped bars that the resistors are connected to and it's a real pain in the ass to clean it out of there...

    Amsoil makes a air filter? Have a part # handy by chance? What kind of filter do you run?

    On my Procharger build I will be running the air filter supplied by ATI. It is a lot different than what you would use.

    I don't have a part number, but they are a Sponsor here. Maybe you can contact them and ask or someone else will chime in.
