    Tune Question?

    i got a 96 trans am lt1, with longtubes, ory pipe and deleted the air/egr, i know i am going to need a tune but whenever i get it all on it may be a couple of weekd before i can afford a tune, would it hurt to drive it without a tune or will it mess anything up?

    I think it might just drive like crap, I know mine does. It's an LS1 though. I NEED a tune. You going with a Dyno tune or mail order? I still have not decided, $500 for Dyno tune is a lot of $$$, but I guess that's what u need to do to get it to run good.

    I lost a lot of low end HP when going to hedders mostly, and other exhaust work. $50 for a tune? Is that a shop or friend? I'd like that deal!

    Let us know how it goes! Frost w/LSXtune is charging $175 for tune right now, I will probably go with that when I sell my PP3. Anyone use LSX mail order tune?

    ok that guy said that he has a April special going on on pcm tuning he can do 93-95 & 98-02 (but cannot do 96-97) which sucks for me,but u pick 2 things from the list to do, Adjust for new Gear Ratio, Change Speed Limiter, Cut Fans On Earlier, Code Deletion, or Raise RPM !! Any 2 of those for $50.... so let me know if u are interested and pm me

    If you are talking about the guy on the Houston Craigslist, he's not local. He's in South Carolina and you have to mail him your PCM.
