Thanks for your business John. That pace car is now a beautiful race car!
With a little tuning, the Automatics are great running transmissions.

ditto from here too.

I was on the fence for a long time on whether to get a tune in my car. I did a lot of reading on this site to help me decide. Well, this weekend Phil at Tampa Tuning just tuned it. I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. Phil took his time and explained everything he was doing. He made the car come alive and did not stop until he was sure everything was perfect. Tons more power and so much more fun to drive. Phil was a great guy to deal with. Thank Phil for finding the hidden power.

I thought Id add a couple screen shots from my HP tuners scanner which shows the differance before a tune and after a tune. The stock tune pulls about 6 degrees of timing at WOT and keeps the car rich. Tampa Tuning will dial in your AFR for optimized performance at a safe level while removing the knock retard. Look how wild the AFR error is on the stock configurations

stock tune:

Tryed Phil out this weekend after having car tuned several years ago by another well known tuner and his tune was just ok, Did AFR heads and cam and gears and was not running at its best and original tuner moved, Waited 2 years not sure which tuner to use and found and checked out Phil with good reviews, He Tuned the car and drove with me to see how i liked it which the other tuner did not do, and he fixed all my problems and car runs great and tested it on the way home and wow, Will be using Phil on any future engine upgrades, He does a great job not in a hurry and the price is very good Thanks Bill

Tampa tuning and Phil - a real professional

Phil did a great job. It was probably good I couldn't see the speedo from the back seat. He made me promise not to barf on his collar.

Seriously, this is a real professional who completely and competently improved my car.

Okay, it chirps from 3rd to 4th, and thinks about it on the next shift. If it didn't have anti-slip it probably would smoke the tires.

I loved this car before Phil tuned it. Now I might just marry it :-) No wait, it's name is the Blue Dragon, I married one of those before. Never a good idea.

Good job, Phil.

This is the second auto tranny I ever bought (other was a VW and I had a 4 year old). You know, I don't think I made a mistake. Affter Phil finished with it I doubt I could ever shift that fast. Lost HP, yes, auto does use some. It's still a remarkable car.

eye candy attached... That's my art on the hood.

I heard someone went out and purchased all the bolt ons, and cam last week to make the car even more fun. I cant want to tune the dragon for the cam.

Tampa Tuning Revs Up Its Staff

July 9, 2012


For Immediate Release




Tampa Tuning Revs Up Its Staff



(Tampa, FL) Tampa Tuning is pleased to announce the addition of a tuning master. Ian Thomson, former full-time instructor and research and development analyst for “The Tuning School” and co-writer of the tuning guide for the six speed automatic transmission has joined Tampa Tuning.

Thomson brings a wealth of knowledge to the tuning arena.


He’s spent thousands of hours in the classroom as an instructor and on the dyno tuning cars. Thomson excels in forced induction vehicles and enjoys the challenge of getting the most out of heads and cam packages. His heads and cam C6 Corvette has 540 RWHP with a smooth shifting 6l80 transmission.



Phil, owner of Tampa Tuning, is thrilled to have Thomson on his team. “He’s one of the best tuners in the country. For those of you who have thanked me for your A6 tuning, you can also thank Ian. He wrote the book on 6l80/90 tuning.”

Best price tuner in Tampa Orlando Brandon Bradenton St. Petersburg

Best price tuner in Tampa Orlando Brandon Bradenton St. Petersburg
The street tuning package which includes everything on my website www.TampaTuning.com
$290 for bolt ons and under vehicles.
$350 for heads and or cam vehicles.
$500 starting for Forced Inductions vehicles only on a dyno.
$100 additional charge to convert a package to a dyno tune.

Add $100 for any of the above packages for trucks and some other low volume vehicles.

Your vehicle must be mechically sound prior to tuning because tuning can not overcome, poor mechincal conditions.

The ZL1 computers are viewed the same way and tables are the same as the rest of the Camaros Corvette and some trucks with 6l60/80/90 trucks.

The supercharged mode is there, but not enabled.

The strategies are the same. I can make it bang hard at every shift (which I dont like) or the more you tip into the throttle, the more kick in the ass the vehicle has through adder tables.

Get the car down here and you'll love it the drive home.
