HELP!! HP advice before a tune.

Iím getting a tune in a few weeks and I want to add as many bolt onís to improve HP as I can before then. Any advice will be appreciated and considered. If someone knows of a good or great tune shop near St Louis MO let me know. Iím not a mail order tune guy. Mail order bride guy maybe, but not with something as serious as tuning my Camaro.

Here are the modís Iíve made so far, American Racing Headers, Borla S exhaust, strong MAF and a Cold Air Inductions CAI. The VMAX throttle body is my next buy if I can find one.

Thank you

Sounds like you are ready for your tune. Unless you want to add that Supercharger first.

It looks like you are all set to go. You will will really like what the tune will do for you. Like a whole different car. Let us know what your final numbers are please. I have the same mods minus the MAF and plus solid core plug wires. I love having the AFM turned off, no more drone. Make sure they turn off the rear O2 sensors or you will get a CEL.

2SS/RS L99 A6, RotoFab CAI, Kooks LT headers w/High Flow cats, Borla CAT back, Heritage grill, SmartMirror, ABL lighting, drilled and slotted rotors w/Hawk pads, 400 watt amp.


Life is too short to drive an ugly car.
I bought mine from Camaro Scotty!

Camaro tuner in Tampa

you pretty much have the bolt ons covered. A catch can from SC2150 cant hurt.

Check out your car on our facebook page.

Iím new to the catch can thing, but I have seen the gunk in another car I had and definitely donít want it in this on.

A member sent me PM suggesting a 160 degree thermostat. I didnít think of that, I donít know what all the benefits are but I will try it. Sometimes it the little tricks that add up to a lot of results. Keepíem coming.

I didn’t have the O2 sensor info, Thanks. Help me understand the solid core plug wires?

Die AFM Die, that sound has to be from a private torture chamber in Hell.

I bought the VMAX TB today. I ordered it striaght from the guy who makes it. His name is Pete at VMAX motorsports and his number is (813)-469-4665. I couldnt find one anywhere else. He's a nice guy but a little overweld right now. I guess everybody has to have one.
