Wish I could go turbo, if the ecu was friendly to tune and cheaper fuel injection. But my sc is good enough for now

Turbo, tuning is just a excuse not a reason. The reason I say this is because most ppl think trifecta and ipf are the only tuners not true there one more a small outfit that tunes our cars as well. My tune currently is perfect.

Vengeance Racing here in Atlanta also can tune the LLT's. They have tuned 2 LLT's in my club with about a 20 rwhp gain if I remember right. I have spoken with them in the past but they are so booked up with projects that they started sourcing out to other shops to help. I told this to Alex once (V6owner) and he pursued it until he also found out how busy they are.

That was my reason, I love your kit, and if there were 4 or 5 of them, and he could send out a "full kit" when i had gotten boosted i may have went that way. also I would need more info on the tune first. and just my way of looking at it, tuning is the MOST IMPORTANT PART!!!

Most of the hardware on these kits for SC are the same. I agree with you that the tune is the most important part ! Seems like there are a few more people tuning LLTs now. The more the better !

Not to knock ipf or trifecta I have message them back and forth and I like to be able to see my tune. I don't like the ideal of plug and go call me old school till I can see it it not proven but worth a shot to try. To move ahead and make more opinions for the llt is a option we can go back and forth with tune and issues but I guess I am different never played follow the leader. By the way even with the emission problem I had never had to remove, it simple solve the problem. If I ever have to 5 hrs tops that easy to go back to stock.

The Vortech V3 is pretty much a belt driven turbo. It's a compromise. I like mine for a variety of reasons, easy installation etc, but a proper turbo build would kick it's arse. Too bad we will never have 100% tuning on these.

Didn't realize you can see into the future. Better tell Tracy so he stops wasting his time.

More info please. Is it still a mail order tune, or do you need a dyno?

By 100% I mean the ability to run mafless etc, the whole shibangabang.
