As far as the vibration from the afm, you hear it more than feel it. It's annoying because my wife's 2010 Tahoe switches back n forth and you would never know it. If there was a problem with lifters would it not send a code or engine light? Keep in mind the car only has 6850 miles on it.

The car should be getting much better fuel mileage than that. I wonder if you don't have a issue somewhere.

A tune will make an absolute tremendous difference in the car. I wouldn't hesitate. A good tune will be well well worth it.

First let me thank you guys for the input. I'm going to reset the fuel average system. Then I will schedule a tune. Do I need to change my plugs or thermostat before the tune being that I only did a cat back & CAI?

Ok, reset fuel mileage tool. Scheduled a tune, the guy comes from out of state so he will be here in July. He suggested that I change my thermostat to a 160 degree. He will also program out the AFM. Thanks again for the input.

You did not mention Fuel grade used, 87-91-93 this is a premium fuel car

If 87 was used previously it could be stuck on the Low octane table, a Fuse pull can reset this.

The K&N Under reports Air flow Leaning out the mixture, forcing the fuel trims to Add 10% fuel which will hurt fuel economy.

I disagree with changing the Thermostat if your chasing fuel economy as it will further hurt mileage as it will prolong engine warm up times and further burn more fuel.

There is No performance advantage to a 160 T stat contrary to popular belief.

Same for spark plugs Factory plugs are best.

I offer Free tuning you can do in your driveway with purchase of an SCT hand held tuner, ask around about JRE tuning, the Reviews are nothing short of Amazing.

Then any future mods purchase from JRE also come with Free tuning support.

Ted.

Thanks Rhino and welcome to vendorville!

Mud,
I offer dyno tuning for bolt ons and under for $390.00

Outside that, your Camaro should be getting better MPG on a stock tune than you're currently achieving if you were cruising up I-95 or the turnpike to Orlando.

You should get better fuel mileage, your car will undoubtebly shift better and you will pick up some power.

If you are interested, we have one of the best tuners around here; Matt Sorian aka Matt@FSP, he can hook you up pretty easily. $299 tuned plus dyno.

One suggestion, do you have any plans for more power? Headers? If so I would hold out until then unless it bothers you that much.

Either way man, pm me if you are interested.
Chris
