An electronic computer cannot block a mechanical forced downshift.

That sucks OP, but good thing you had the funds lying around to fix!

You can raise your shift points at any shop that'll dynotune your car. It isn't a big deal, but this is one of the tradeoffs of an automatic transmission. You're never going to have complete...

Doesn't matter what the dyno says. Dynos aren't designed to measure accurate horsepower. Let us know how it runs at the track. That's what matters.

Those fees are insane. I paid around $200 in fees out the door and my car cost about the same. $1600 in destination charges and processing fees? Unacceptable. If they don't remove those I'd walk.

I believe the SS front end can take the Apex/ADM scoop and the ZL1 front end cannot. That may swap someone's decision.

Rock chips at highway speeds can puncture the protective coating. Over time, simple weathering could cause this type of damage. Once there is a chink in the armor, things can go downhill fast.

Sounds like dyno games.

You won't notice a power increase from a ported TB. There is a noticeable increase in throttle response, but it's not magical. It's worth the $150 IMO, but that's it.

Thanks PSJ. I assume they're a race-style merge collector, and not a flat style collector like what was common in the old LS1 days before the higher end stuff came out?
