I'll document it closely.

Since I spent 9 years driving tractor trailers, the acutal trip may not be eventful though. hahaha

But the tuning and subsequent dyno runs may kill me.

I don't understand why some guys get so nervous about dyno-tuning. I find it fun and exciting. (Maybe I don't think enough about how it's stressing my car?) All I know is it sound kick-ass when they run it up to redline! ROAR!

I used to have horses and haul horse trailers all over the place. Trailering is no big deal.

How long does it take to get to Jacksonville from Mobile? (I mean when hauling a Camaro, not when driving a Camaro.)

Yup. Zebra is coming with me and we are using his truck to pull my car to GTAHVITs plave. There, in Jacksonville, we will have EFI tune my car.

You better record all this and the tuning so when it goes KLAAAABOOOOM we can all see.

Man did I really type that? PQ I wish you luck but I do not think it will do any good.

Well. It seems I'm one of the very few who have a cat delete AND a supercharger who didn't have a dyno available.

I wonder who else tried a set-up similar to mine on a stock blower tune.

Well, it's my set-up that has it where it is. I installed the unit in about the 12 hour time frame that seems to be normal for non-pros. Working a couple hours a night. lol

It's just been a week of speculation as to the problem.

After talking to Magnuson and a few other tuners, it's been realized that my current mods are the culprits. The stock Magnuson tune is based on a bone stock car with only the blower on it. I have no cats, long tube headers, and a wide open intake.

The stock blower tune won't work. The nightmare is not having anyone in Mobile, or even lower Alabama for that matter, that does tuning.
