We put down over 25 runs with just under 500 miles on the car and got the best of 13.38 fully stock (that was in the Sept issue). A month later we tuned the car as shown in the current issue - I posted about the 100 lb-ft torque gains at the bottom end but everyone called BS, unfortunately I couldn't play spoiler and post the dyno sheet then. Watch future issues for more upgrades we are doing to the car (including many more track runs).

Terry

very nice.

I got that issue yesterday too, and I'm a little ticked they couldn't run any times.

It seems, to me, like all the videos show the cars short-shifting before 6K RPMs. I think a lot of these tunes make the shifts closer to 6000-6200 RPMs. I think there are good gains to be had just from a simple engine tune and reprogramming shift points, firmness, and speed.

Good catch!!! I was going to post this article
That was our tune And Yes I'd bet you could get a L99 with extended shift point's and keep from making the 3-4 shift to run 12.7 all stock .

Its amazing how much of a beast and much more fun this thing is to drive. The magic is all in the AF Ratios (with averages over 13.3-1) and with balancing TQ Management with line pressure and shift points in the A6. Most of the changes are true of what was posted earlier - its the gains over the base along the band, in my case some times 90 HP between 3150 and 3850 RPM. The magic in the tune is not quite so mysterious but in reality its Matt's experience in tuning the G8.

For the lay person - its punching it and banging 2nd and 3rd on the way out to ??.??sec - stay tuned...
Thanks for the review ...

Yeah - didn't the G8 shift just before the line or something? 12.7s with just a tune is just bad@$$!!!

You guys are doing a great job!!!

Dan from FasterProms works with Jeremy, who is the tuner of Helen and Terrys 2010.

I work for GMHTP (Associate Editor) and did the write up and pictures for that article.

AH!!!

I that magazine. What's with all the editors of late?! First (well, last I can remember), Hunkins goes over to PHR, the Endres goes somewhere, and now we have Parker... He's been with GMHTP for at least about five years, no? Still - I'm excited we have someone from my favorite magazine here Sometimes I end up with two of the same issues because I can't wait to receive my subscription in the mail, lol

How soon until we start seeing more mods' on the '10? Friggin' SC already has an LT, tune, and VVT cam write-up on an L99 [SIZE="1"]They also have a cool interview with AO.../SIZE].

PLEASE - Keep up the great work

I just picked up a subscription to keep in the loop :0). But just a heads up, I only wanted to order 9 issues as I have never read this magazine befor and I decided to just have them bill me for this later. After clicking continue on the bill me later option they offered an extra 2 issues if I paid for it now. Im not sure if you get the extra two if you decided to just pay up front.

You won't regret it.

Not to offend anyone, or anyone from the other magazines (i.e. SC, HR, PHR, CHP, etc.) but they seem so far behind the LS-engines and cars. I might buy two or three, of said magazines in a whole year because they just don't seem to have any interest in the newer GMs. They get all excited if they get like 400 FWHP out of a H/C LS1. GMHTP is, by far, the best late-model GM magazine on the stand. They know how to drive, get great results, have great tech' articles, and I read every issue like 100 times. Some of that is because there are only ten issues a year but that just makes the months following those breaks even better.

JMVHO.

RadZ,

Scott Parker is still the editor, I work with him on the magazine. Really glad you enjoy the mag - and trenchdog, thanks so much for subscribing! - we try our best to get some good edit out the door each month.

We have a couple more stories coming up, including some bolt-ons to a 6-speed 2010, a converter/tire story with an auto and a supercharger install with a different 6-speed. We are also going to be doing some top speed runs in October along with track testing in September.

I'm not sure my post came across like I meant it. I didn't mean to sound like I was unhappy with Parker - if I did, my bad, and sorry. Shoot, didn't he have a '97 TA that he did some bolt-ons and a stall to? Maybe that was someone else... Anyways, I liked Blue Thunder though

Those are stories that I think many are going to be looking forward to. I noticed Automobile Magazine mentioned one of their guys getting an SS up to 162 - I'm not sure how that happened with a speed-limiter I thought was set lower, but I digress. All I know is those look great and the more the merrier!!!

Oh no, I didn't take it that way at all!

He still has that car, it is almost ready for some new goodies, as soon as he gets it down from NJ.

I think we can beat AM - but we will have to wait and see!

OK - whew.

Will the new goodies be in the magazine? I think I remember the last I saw it, it had some intake stuff, a Vig' 2800, 3.42s? (he swtiched from the 3.73s, didn't he), and the Borla. WOW. He's been there a while.

I think you guys can't beat them, along with those other wine-and-cheese rags', on just about anything. It's not like they even try to run these cars to their fullest - no powershifting, no prep'd surfaces, etc. BOO!!! Beat 'em like they owe you money

Does the article explain exactly what and how they tuned? I live in Denver and have a shop here that has done great tunes on the G8 but havent touched an L99 yet. I would love to be able to give them exactly what you guys did to get those results.

GREAT JOB !

I love the mag too but my god I have the hardest time trying to renew. They always lose the first check I send with my renewal form (third time in a row), I gave up this summer trying so I had to buy this one off the stands.

Thank you Justin for giving Helen and I the opportunity to work with GMHTP, the coverage in the magazine has been awesome. Also the opportunity to work with Jeremy on the tune was great - it definitely transformed the car.

Thanks for the review ...
Not sure about skipping the 3-4 shift
I had my L99 at the track last night to test my new SLP Long tube system (w/ powerflow x pipe, and powerflow axle back). Car is definitely quicker, but now I have a problem with hitting the rev limiter in second and once in third, it did this in both D and S (sport mode, not manual). Traction control off, and once with competition mode).
My tuner also has HP tuners beta, but we have not worked on the car yet as Im hoping to buy the consumer version when it goes into production so I can log some stuff, and set back to stock before trips to the dealer.
Anyway, to skip the 3-4 shift, I think its going to be going over 6400 rpms to get that kind of time. With the cutouts going down the track, I was still doing 13.5s and into 4th for a couple seconds.
The motor does not seem to pull very hard north of 5500 (maybe Im wrong). To me not worth putting the AFM lifters through that stress and not much pull up that high with the stock cam. Thoughts?

Question on the tune, can you have different shifting profiles for D and Sport modes? Can the Engine tunes also be different depending if its in D or Sport
