I have a 2010 SS 6 speed, I've done the kooks long tube headers, and the k and n cai but have not tuned, my question is how much horse power gain can I see with a tune and I've been seeing this g force chip claiming 30 to 60 horse power gains, how true is this has anyone tried one of these chips and again how much would a tune add, other then spending 9,000 on a super charger how else can I get good horse power gains for 5 grand or less...
Thanks for any info

First thing, our car's do not have a chip in them. I wished that crap would go away. LT's, CAI and a good tune should get you around 35-40hp. That's a solid gain in my book. Get a tune on your car and see how you like it then. The rest is gonna cost $$$$.

cai->longtubes->cam->head work by west coast heads->tune=happy face

you will crush the competition....dont forget suspension stuff mixed in, not as sexy but will make you faster just the same. bushings bushings bushings sways. then lightweight wheels and actual performance tires

Thinner head gaskets will bump up the compression a little. They're cheap ish

Other than nitrous if anyone has the answer to the main title of this thread let me and the rest of us know. As it stands now there is no cheap and reliable way to make this car alot faster. If you want to go fast and be reliable its going to cost money. Remember you can only pick 2 of the three choices. Fast, reliable, cheap
