Oh definitely. With the Pzeros I had to leave TC on and launch right off of idle to get the best 60' once I got the tune and headers.

There is something in the tables that are causing the throttle to not open past a certain point until x amount of MPH is reached. LLT does not do it, only the LFX so it just needs a work around (I'm confidant you will solve it) and then watchout!.

Damnnnn wish my afr's would read steady like that when cruising.

maybe for the throttle response you could try a sprint booster cuz i put one in my car and it definitely made a difference and opened the throttle body a lot faster.

It isn't the response, it is probably some nanny GM built in. We command 100:% and it only gives us 40-50%. Don't think a sprint booster ca fool it that much.

Great review and can't wait for the 10second pass. Are you running the Autolite plugs with your new setup?

Still running the stock plugs LOL! Just gapped them down a bit. We've pulled them several times and they still look good. Lower CR may be helping us there, too.

Hey Gretchen.. Little hint on the throttle stuff...

LESS is better on engine torque management tables.

You have my cell number, throw me a text I'll explain.
