i'm buyin a superchips tuner and plan on doing some 'test and tune' runs at the drag strip to try to find out what runs best. i could use some input as i'm sure there's a lot of people in here that've done the same or similar mods and tuning. i have no idea where to start with the air/fuel ratios. to the best of my knowledge stock it's running 10.1:1. any ideas what might work the best with the bolt ons i've got?
the bolt ons for my 01 ss...
bbk 80mm throttle body
bbk intake man.
hooker 1.75 headers

like I said I have one. the one good thing about it is that after every run at the track I could adjust my shiftpoints and frimness... the last time I went it was only 45* , so I steadily dropped pressure till my stopped breaking traction on 1-2 and 2-3 shifts

Is there any good info on AFR tuning? The demos are great for how the software works, but I find no good info on actual tune info. Any vocabulary lessons? PID? I'm sure lots of people don't even know AFR, PCM, VCM, Map, MAF tables etc... I'm sure this would help a lot of others. Anyone?

I have seen and read a lot of info on a/f ratios somewhere on here but I can't remember where. I think someone had it up as a link in another thread. I wish I could tell you exactly where it was.... I think it was in (tunning and computers) but not sure

This is what I've been using to do most of my tuning. Its a dumbed down version of many different folks instructions, created by a guy named cpig over on the HPT forums. Its HPTuner specific and doesn't do much for teaching you what all the acronyms mean, but if you study it and research the things discussed you will learn quite a bit.
