Sounds Hot! Your going to be hell on street.Wildcat69 said:Nope, not yet. I have 4.56 gears, headers and dual exhaust and a Yank torque converter waiting to go on. Supposedly tuner Jeremy F. in Central Florida has it on order but is out the next couple of weeks for his wedding.
I am in the same boat I have the equipment ready to be put on just waiting on a tuner to complete the project......06blueroadsterZack said:Sounds Hot! Your going to be hell on street.
Anyone else? I have a stock 05-6speed. Wondering if anyone else with a stock ride has or is going to get the tuner?:skep
JIm, is there a good repurable tuner in the DFW area for the LS2 engine. 05 SSRJimGnitecki said:Zack: Just so you are clear: there are two very different approaches to tuning a vehicle electronically, and I'm not sure you see that.
A MICROTUNER (handheld hardware with special cable to connect to your diagnostic port under the dash, that connects wit your vehicle computer) is pre-programmed with a "tune" that provides moderate (VERY moderate) gains in mid range and a bit at peak rpm, via spark and air/fuel ratio changes to the stock tune. It ONLY works with a purely stock vehicle, and will in fact refuse to laod onto a modified vehicle.
TUNING SOFTWARE (e.g. the "HP Tuner" package mentioned above) is software that allows a PROFESSIONAL to tune the software in your vehicle's computer using HIS personal expertise. Tuning software does NOT come with any "pre-loaded" tunes. It does NOTHING for you until a professional uses it to reprogram your computer, but it is FAR more powerful than a microtuner.
Usage of each:
Use the microtuner if all you want is a bit of a bump up in performance and will make no other PHYSICAL changes. If you also make phsyical changes, the preloaded tune no longer matches your phusoical reality and can hurt your engine and drivetrain significantly.
Use the tuning software to:
1. have a PRO do what the microtuner would do to optimize the stock phsyical reality,
2. adapt the electronic tune to changes in physical reality a syou make them (dual exhaust, headers, new air intake, supercharger, etc).
Most people do not buy the tuning software personally unless they want personal control of the software themselves. Most simply go to a commercial tuner who uses such software and who pays the software company a licensing fee for each vehicle he uses it on (it tracks vehicle VINs). He charges you that licensing fee plus the fee for his services.
If you buy your OWN license, and if youre tuner knows how to use that particular tuning software package, he can use YOUR license, and just charge you for his tuning expertise and services. The advantage of this approach is that it is then clear that the tune is YOUR property, not his, and you can change tuners anytime and still have your current tune and all prior tunes on your own home computer.
Hope this helsp clarify things a bit.
