Gut your cats before you tune it. You'll melt the inside of them and it will be much more difficult to do later.

I just put a whipple kit on my stock 2010 6 manual. As stock, with the stock tune, things seem lean, mostly due to the injector data. I would give you my data, but it's all hacked up. It was by default, about 8% lean.

So dont go flooring it too much until you get a WB tune.

And anybody else notice the Whipple MSD Fuel Pump Booster causes alot of radio interference?

The Whipple tune is intended for a stock airbox and if you are 100% stock with the blower it works pretty good. Fueling is rich and safe and you should not have any issues unless you modify the car. Injector data is 100% accurate

How about the IAT cal? Mine (and other people) are noticing iat's are always about 15F below ambient/actual temp. The coolant temp and ambient air temp ( on radio) are correct and the IAT temps are 15f low on a non-running, 24+ hr off, parked in a garage, constant temp environment... Seen it at 50f ambient through 80f so far, stock whipple tune.

The Whipple MSD Fuel Pump Booster Does cause a lot of radio interference. As soon as I installed this kit my radio was useless.

At Whipped416 level.I think he's at 850RWHP.I don't think the ZL1 pump will be enough.

But at 500-650RWHP level the ZL1 seems to work well.
