Well I did the pull and I noticed no difference. Maybe it isn't as pronounced on the LS3 engine as it is on the L99...

You have a tune where the LTFT's are already modified and adjusted to levels probably higher to the factory high trims so I wouldn't expect to see anything on a tuned car already.

Doing the fuse pull won't change what the tuner did , right?

If your car is tuned then you don't need to do the fuse pull. But if you did it then the tune will not be affected. I did it on Sunday and I have a Predator tune.

Nope, just do the fuse pull and give it an hour or two that's all.

Provided it had low octane fuel in it at one time, and now has super in it, the difference is quite dramatic.

I did the fuse pull yesterday and have noticed that my 2012 SS
Runs much smother. No bumps or pops at low speeds. Better than
When I picked it up in march. Factory/dealer must have put low octain
Fuel in it.

pulling fuses today, I had some bad gas and have run 5 tanks through with still a small hesitation at low RPM, more noticeable when warming up, kinda studders a little during the accelration.
