Post seeking advice for Dyno tuning

I am recieving my 2014 zl1 convertible around oct. 1. I have already decided to drop in a set of plustar plugs after the breakin period is over. I have never owned a Supercharged car before, and I am interested in knowing if, dyno tuning the motor will be advantageous without doing any other Modifications?.

If it is advantageous without any other Modifications done, could you please tell me what the advantageous would be and why?.

Congrats, As a tuner I can tell you that you should Leave the plugs alone, and put at least 1500 miles on before you tune.

Make sure you have all the bugs worked out before you start modding.

A tune can and will unleash some hidden power through reduction in torque management, we can make the car run a bit cooler, and improve your overall driving experience.

It will not be until you start turning the supercharger faster that you will see any significant gains.

May I suggest My 75 RWHP Tune Package as a first Step in your Quest for more performance.

This will put you at the same power level as the GT500.

Ted.

... What Jannetty said, I popped all Pulstars in my Chrysler 300 to try them and experienced 0 difference and I have thousands of miles on them now. They work, but I didn't experience any HP gains and there was no change in mpg either. A waste of money in my opinion.

The first thing that comes to my mind is your convertible will come with a 155 mph limiter on it. The tuner will make that go away. I agree that at a minimum if you tune the car you should have a pulley upgrade because there is a lot more power available for very little cost there. I would look for someone semi close to home (my tuner is 100 miles away) and talk to people on the board before you jump in. You will find out pretty quickly which shops back-up their work. Good Luck and welcome to ZL1 ownership!

Once you break it in, then you will have a better idea as to what you want.

Jannetty Racing has really nice packages that you can expand on as you go.
You do not have to put it on a dyno with every add on, just call them and they can send over the tune for your mods through an email. Makes it easy and save some serious $$$$
