I have the CAI installed now and just maybe if I get some time this weekend I will get back started on the tune. It has been raining here but to be clear the next couple of days!
ProudLS what part of Texas you in?

Just because it's raining doesn't mean you can't begin to calibrate the MAF. WOT is a nightmare to do in the rain, obviously, but everything else is still easy enough. Please, please, please tell me you have a wideband to install before the catalytic converter to do your WOT tuning!

Yes I have a wideband. I just do not like to drive my clean car in the rain!

I have never driven my vette in the snow! I have driven it in the rain.:(
I have my MAF dialed in now. Need to do the WOT part now!

What's your CAI? Keep us posted about your tune.

Well, I have Fastlane CAI and I think it needs more attention than other CAIs.

Is your car a A6 transmission or M6 transmission?

What's the affect if I change the MAP pressure to let's say 13KPA instaed of 15KPA under P/E table?

Nothing. PE is mostly dictated by throttle position.

For your PE table, just put 1.1744 across the board. Once you are more proficient and know more about tuning, you can start to tweak it to get the best power setup. For now, set it to what I mentioned so that you aren't chasing a moving target during WOT tuning.

Then what was putting pressure on the manifold when you were discussing it in this thread

I saw your tune file and it seems you still need to work on MAF calibration and play with the timing advance.

I have a question to you how did you tune your VE table? Is it necessary to tune both MAF and VE in the same time, even for WOT mod?

I have not touched the VE-just the MAF and I have not tuned my WOT yet! Remember my car is a L99 A6 and yours is a LS3 M6! They are not the same!!!

Yes you are right I forgot that, now waiting for your WOT tune

We weren't talking about putting pressure on the manifold.

When you are looking at MAP (manifold absolute pressure), you can get a gauge of how efficient you're operating during wide open throttle. When you're WOT, typically you want to see your MAP value around 98-99. If it starts dropping lower, it means the engine is having to work harder to pull air into the cylinders, which is a bad thing. It's got nothing to do with triggering power enrichment.

How is your tuning going? I am out of town now but when I get back send your tune to me and I will look it over.

That's good to know but is there any way you can maintain your MAP value 100 or 99?
