    More Air & Tune

    I have a mail order tune from frost, I just got a Super Hawk Hood with full Ram Air as well as a WS6 lower high rise air box. So lots more air coming in, will the computer with the Tune ReLearn the extra air and make adjustments on its own? Or will it need a return to Frost to make it right?
    I will be sending him a email, wondered if anyone here would know

    that shouldn't be enough to effect the tune....that's all pre MAF stuff. Your MAF will still read the airflow correctly.

    ^^ Agree. No need to update your tune.

    The only time you will need to retune your PCM for air intake is when you have a forced air system such as a turbo or a supercharger. Ram air and hood scoops will not effect your current tune.

    Generally a good rule of thumb is if you don't make changes between the maf to the O2 sensors you don't need a tune.

    I think I might've talked to you before on here. I go out by you a couple times a year. I go out by Bedford and Everett. Know a few people from Johnstown that graduated high school from Ferndale.

    I work for a company that supplies them with a lot of the components they use on their builds - draft gears, side bearings, beams, etc.

    when I go out there now I go to Everett.....that's about an hour from you I believe. Roughly. We always stop and hit Hoss' there in Somerset because I can't resist a buffet.

    How old are you? Did you go to school out there?

    The plant I worked in is no longer it has been torn completely to the ground. Where do you go, industrial park or down town, give me a holler sometime if you have time I buy you lunch.

    I go to the office building close to the river. Not sure if that's considered downtown or not. I call on a few people there regularly. We usually chat over lunch while I am there, but I am down to get together sometime for sure. I'll actually be there again on March 13th and March 14th - so a few weeks out.
