First Mod

Whats up guys, im excited about doing my first performance mod, long tubes. Getting them installed this weekend but im going to have to wait another week to get it tuned because no one in my city does that type of stuff.

Nice. What made you go with long tubes first? Most people start with cold air intake or exhaust first. Long tubes are in my future but I just spent my car wad on exhaust cutouts.

are you going to go with an email tune? If not I would probably wait until you go with an intake and other mods before you pay for a full dyno tune, that is if you plan to go with more mods in the near future.

Agreed! Email tune is sufficient for longtubes. No need to get a dynotune until you start getting crazy with the mods. Those usually cost quite a bit more. The accuracy difference between a remote tune from say DynoSteve via SCTx4 and a dyno tune would be negligible and wouldn't be worth it in my opinion. Especially since you can get a SCTx4 from Steve for ~$400 and get free tune updates for life compared to a ~$600 dyno tune.

Even before LTs', I think a great first mod for a stock LS3 would 3.91 rear gears from a 1LE or even 4:10's. Gearing can really wake a car up.

Let the mods begin (I mean continue!). Go with a remote from Steve, and you won't be disappointed! Agree with Racesloth too, 3.91's will wake your car up.
