Check engine light came on and the gauge is reading 10.5 on the a/f ratio guage. is it safe for me to drive it to auto zone and get the code read.

Didn't read the whole thread, but lose the 22's, they suck with anything but stock cars.

OP ... I have heard really good things about Lethal...Have you been in touch with them about any of the concerns with your car...tune or otherwise? I'm surprised that they haven't chimed in on this thread by now.

I have went over their and told them my concerns. This is Lethal from san Antonio tx. Not sure if that is one that you were thinking about. They said with the new autos for the Camaro it was very hard and stuff.

Yeah, that wasn't the one I was thinking of - sorry. I was thinking of the one from Louisiana.

Jannetty will retune if you buy from him. If you're concerned about tunes every time you make changes . That's the best deal going.
When my build was done i had a modified Stock Exhaust......i now have a Cat back Borla S-Type installed. Should i retune for that also?

I have a Maggie, Kooks long tubes, ported throttle body, rotofab on my LS99 and I am getting 521HP and 561Torque... I have large 20 inch wheels taking up some of the HP. I also changed out the fuel pump to the ZL1 pump which has helped a little. I am using a 3.2 pulley, but before everyone thinks i should get more, I am in New Mexico at almost 6000 feet. I agree your numbers seem low based on what I have read, but from what I am learning there is so many diffrent variables from weather to your tires that could have affected that number
