Posted this in the vette section but decided to go here to just incase.
Hey guys I'm looking to buy a good tuner for the vette. On my mustang I had a Diablo sport and a sct. Kind of at a stand still with a Chevy though. Looking for just a hand held tuner not looking for anything that is permanent. Please let me know your opinions. Thanks y'all

what's your plans for the car? Keeping it fairly stock? I know most here (myself included) will tell you that a frost mail order tune for $150 can't be beat. It really is a great option and much cheaper than the hand helds plus it's a much much better tune. I had a diablo at one time and it wasn't a bad hand held tuner. Not sure what diablo lets you do these days as far as deleting codes though. I think most have gotten away from that if you wanted to pull the cats at some point. I would still say the frost tune is your best option. Heck...he's only 3-4 hours from you. You could almost just drive up and get a tune in person.

I was looking to also be able to check codes and clear them.where exactly is frost? Would he be able to keep codes off after cats are taken off? I am looking to add exhaust next then clutch . Upgrade most things with the motor and some day I wouldn't mind a blower

he's in Richmond, VA. and yes.....he can take care of those codes for you. As far as reading the codes you could always get an actron scanner that will read and clear the codes. Prices vary depending on what scanner you have. I have an actron cp9180 that's a pretty nice little reader that lets you also look at live data. If I were buying one today though I'd buy the cp9580 because it also lets you read ABS codes.
