    what is done to the car? assuming its stock it might be more beneficial to wait on the tune until you do some modifications. That way your not spending money twice.

    That being said i sent my PCM to Frost for a mail order tune and couldn't be happier. However i do plan on getting it Dyno tuned once i install long tubes.

    Like said already, it mainly depends on what you have done to your car. If you have basic bolt-on modifications such as a lid, TB, exhaust, LT's, etc...you will benefit from something like a mail order from Frost. However, if you are talking about a tune after internal engine modifications like a cam, then an actual DYNO tune need will be needed.

    A DYNO tune on-site will be the most beneficial tune overall, but it is also a lot more expensive than the mail order.

    The important thing is that your car is running properly; not too lean.

    You can tune the car yourself if your willing to learn with efi live tunes. That way you can tune with every additional mod you do. Just an option. I have it and it works really well, lots of info to learn though.

    This is true! You can also check out HPTuner's; the market is mostly them and EFI Live for these cars.

    Steve, why double the cost for a bolt on C6? Is that $250 still true if I have HP Tuner and have you email me one of your existing tunes?

    Hey Larry,

    It's true because HPT has to get five thousand million credits before yr models are unlocked for late model stuff. I have email programs that vary by car and you get a little more out of them than a one-shot tune. They include cfgs for logging, the base file, and instructions on how to log. You get two updates included based on logs.

    I understand. Didn't realize you sent changes based on logs. Thought you had some basic tunes and no logs were required. Thanks!

    In general I do, but there are more CAI's out there than I have tuned, and they have a huge impact on the calibration of the MAF. I get feedback and the customer gets a better calibration.

    Thanks for the nice words guys!
