Tuned price

Has anyone ever tuned their 2ss, there's a guy close by that does it, you have to by a sct tuner from him for like 350 and another 300 for the tune, does this price sound right? If you have tuned a stock ss, can you give feedback on horsepower gain

Since you're in Charlotte give Alvin and Kelly a call at PCM. Alvin has been tuning LS engines for years.

There is also Heintz Racing and others..you have plenty of choices!!! I would save average dyno tune is going to run $500.

I'm sorry guys, I'm kinda new to this, can you get a tune without the car being on the dyno? Does this void factory warranty?

Yes, tuning will void warranty and you WANT a dyno tune for best results.

Didn't you make another thread about parting with your car and now you're tuning it?

1. Yes (see post #2)

I wouldn't bother with a shop that makes you buy a tuner so they can tune it. Reputable shops will already have the program and can just charge you for the tune.

And yes, a Dyno tune is much better than a "canned" or "mail order" tune. That's not to say the other options is terrible but real world tuning is always better.

i am assuming your car is farely stock, that being said the JRE tune is more than enough and it is mail order...as far as the warranty my car is cammed/blown headers and i still get warranty work done as long as nothing i did affected car....i even lost the program in my re-motes and they said the tune had nothing to do with it.

Not sure how you can say that, if you do anything to the ECM outside of an authorized dealer it will void the warranty.

LOL, I have tuned over 1100 Gen5 Camaros.

Performance gains come from many factors, Dialing in your bolt ons, Torque management, Rev limiter, speed limiter, Skip shift off, fans on earlier, transmission tuning on A6, all enhance performance.

If you install the Right Parts, The parts you install provide the big HP gains, the tune makes them work properly, no check engine lights, and great fuel economy.

I had my 2010 LS3 done @ RDP Motorsports. He ran my car on the dyno 4 times to get it tuned to the max. Went from 375RWHP to 417.5RWHP. I have a CAI and exhaust cutouts, not other mods.

They charged me $550 which I thought was a good deal to get that much HP gain. Steve @ RDP spent almost 2 hours and 4 runs on the dyno so I wasn't disappointed in what it cost.
