simple bolt ons would include CAI, ported TB, tune and catch can for starters. Those can be done in an afternoon.

Meh, i barely drive it because i love it so much, and the people in my city are all very elderly and cant drive that well, so the warranty being voided is an ok loss, it is a 2010 so it only had a year or so left on it anyway.. Also it only has 6,000 miles on it, so it shouldnt have too much wear on the parts..

But if anyone has any tips or setups they would like to share thats for my stock LS3, it would be great to have

Tuning a stock LS3 is not worth your money. You wouldn't see that much in gains. You are better off waiting till you get some bolt ons put on the car suchs as: long tube headers, cold air intake, ported throttle boddy and then have a tune. Also, don't get a can tune (meaning a tune that was done on one car and then reproduced to sell for every car). Make sure you have someone who know what their doing tune your car.

I agree, it is not worth tuning until get a few mods under your belt. I suggest starting with the basic bolton's and once you are ready for headers then you will want a tune. Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Your power train warranty is longer than your bumper to bumper. What you gain is not worth the money to tune till you do some modifications.

Ditto. I had mine done through Ted. I think it was well worth it. I just added ARH shorty headers (to stay legal in CA) and can't wait to get my updated tune from Ted.
