    Tuning?????

    I have a 2000 WS6 with EGR on it and was wondering if I would have to tune the car if I ran an LS6 intake with no EGR to keep from kicking a light on.
    Also I live in Central Ohio and was wondering who would be a good person to tune the car.
    Any help with this would be appreciated.
    Thanks, BILL

    Yep, you'll throw a code. I deleted my EGR and AIR when I did my LS6 intake, then went to pcmforless.com and they did my tune and deleted the codes forever (including the worthless rear-bank 0-2 sensor codes). They send you a tuned pcm, you send your core...additional tunes for mods are a great deal after that. Also they got 30+ out of my setup...not bad for hookin a computer up, huh.

    Heh, almost forgot...Plug n Wire changes are WAY easy now that the AIR and EGR are gone!!!!

    Unless you got hardcore internal mods, spray or forced intake on your ride, a dyno will only really get you 5-7 hp. A lot to pay for a few extra hp...money better spent elsewhere. Take my word for it, those guys are good!
