new forum area for diagnostic and tuning

just a suggestion, i think we need a new forum section for diagnostic and tuning where we can post our tune files and get suggestions on tuning for engine mods and auto trans tunes. hp tuners and efi live both have support for the 2010 camaro now and this would be a nice addition to camaro5!

Agreed. Engine related diagnostics and tuning info/links. Who know? One of us might find an Open Source OBD-II tuning program out there, and detailed instructions on how to tune the L3s/L99s ? ...or maybe Santa isn't listening?

I was thinking more along the lines of a section for the tuning with a sub-section that had a library of tunes that you can download. These tunes being done by members not paid for and done by a professional shop.

You'd have to be very careful. A bad tune can actually damage your engine.

correct, that is why we need an area to post up our tunes and to get suggestions from other members that are also working on their own tunes, and im sure the pro's can step in if they want to and add their advise

I agree, the site would just need to put a large disclaimer for that section. The diesel forums I am on do this it's actually very useful.

I agree there should be a tuning section....

As for tuning...I am working with a company whom does custom tuning via the internet, and they are working on it for our cars. They are developing it with my car right now!! It is amazing, and they do it on many many other vehicles as well.
