    98 camaro tunning

    i have a 98 z28 in the shop getting long tube headers and off road y pipe, ls6 intake manifold, and a 228/580/112 cam. I have heard that due to the 98's computer that i will see less gains as compared to some of the other year camaros. What kind of reduction in power gains can i expect because of tunning?

    That isnt fully true. A major set back is the lack of resoultion for the ve tables. However, a shop tune will more than likely consist of:
    tuning idle, scaling your injectors for the trims, maf adjustments, pe tuning for a/f and deleting codes, rear o2's,egr/air, those sorts of things. in short, you should be ok with a shop tune.

    i know the 98 heads are probably the worst flowing of all the LS1 heads...thats about the only thing that should hold you back and even that will only be a couple of hp.

    perimeter bolt heads are the suck! if and when you do heads, get center bolt valve covers

    Look in my sig for the potential of the 1998 computer. Any competent tuner will be able to extract the same potential from a 1998 computer as compared to a 1999+.
