All in due time. I can't wait to see the new LF3. I'm thinking one of those turbos may be the perfect size for a 1.4L and it may just fit with some rework of the exhaust. If not, then maybe a BW vendor like Full Race will build a EFR kit. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'll have to keep my eyes peeled in the sonic forums! Never thought about the LF3 turbo's!

Have you found a good forum? All the ones I've seen are pretty lame.

sonicownersforum.com seems to be the best. they are a bit slow, compared to camaro5, but it's not bad. lol lots of good info there, and the layout is easy to navigate.

you asking the difference between mail order and something like efi live or HPT?

if so, there are a few things the efi and HPT bring to the table. for instance, these suites usually have hundreds of tables that can be tweaked. and they can be changed right away (dyno tune). Whereas with the mail order tune, you rely on a guy that emails you back a tune, you have to reinstall, and hope that it's spot on, or have to mail it back. also, with the trifecta, it seems they have maybe 50 tables open (back when I had it in 2011). This is also why most shops will not touch the LLT motor. Their tuner can't tune the car, they have to rely on someone else.

I'll probably go to Maryland International Raceway since my other runs have been there so I can keep things the same. I'll be happy with low 12s for a daily driver and I'm still getting 28 -30 mpg.

So far things have gone very good on the tuning with Matt@FSP. It's still been in the upper 90s here and 100 degrees. Hoping to do some more datalogging when the weather breaks some. Than I'll do some base testing at the track. I don't see any reason to go track testing when the weather is so bad so bear with me and Matt. But I am VERY pleased with the driveability and the "butt dyno" so far. I'll keep posting to keep everyone in the loop. Even if it is just to say "still too darn hot".

I agree with the Title of this post. I had my car done or so I thought. Car seems great on the street but does nothing at the track. I have an intake, headers, and full exhaust. Just this weekend a full stock SS beat me by half a second on the eighth mile. Pretty embarrassing! Of course then everyone kept saying it was my tune all night long. UGH........

Could not agree more. I am about to get my forth tune. First two were from shops in Chicago and were horrible, third is a remote tune that is fair to good. Forth is going to be from Matt @ FSP. I hope he nails it as I will be $2000 in tunes.

So is this what the pre tuning chalk board looks like?

Hey,
You were not supposed to show me Hugging Matt for making my tuning correct. Next it's Motel 8, I'll leave the light on. On another note the weather in my area has cooled off some and did some more data logging for Matt and have received some updated tune files from him. This car feels so different now than when we started this tuning. Looking forward to some track time in the near future. This has been all motor tuning so far, once he has me dialed in than comes the real fun. CAN YOU SAY NITROUS!!!
Thanks Matt for all of your time and effort.
Rick

In a good way? feel more responsive? What kind of readings are you getting for your AFR? Did you make any trans adjustments? How about having your cooling fans come on a little earlier? I am thinking of going with HP Tuner setup as well and not using my Trifecta...

YES in a GREAT way!! A/F now remember this is a Direct injection engine is around 12.8 - 12.9 right now on all motor. Tuning is not done yet!!! Transmission adjustments have been made and it shifts nice at part throttle and really nice at WOT. Lots of changes being made to knock sensors and other inputs. I'll leave all the details alone for now until it is all done, track tested and dyno tested. I will say I'm glad I spent the extra and went for this even after I already had the Trifecta tuning. Not saying Trifecta is bad, it did good at that time. I'm just a lot more pleased now with the results I have now.

Sounds Good!! I may do the switch as well even though my Trifecta is only a couple months old.

We are getting close to the final adjustments on the motor tune, things are going very well. Hoping to do some track/dyno runs within the next 2-3 weeks. <--- Thats my guess at this point.
