I only get that stiff feeling when the tune is on. When it is back to stock, the pedal feels more soft but I assume that it is running rich. Does that have to do with the TB or CAI because the tune was actually done for these mods in specific?

a tune cannot change the tension on the pedal box its only a sensor its not a loaded unit, i think your talking about throttle delay not firmness, i would re fit the stock throttle body sir as we have seen many faulty throttle body units over the years

Well here is the deal. I updated my SCT4 software and downloaded the custom tune again. It took much longer than it did the first time so I felt that something is going on. I tried the car after the tune and man it was the beast that the guys were talking about. Amazing ride

I can hear the fan operating and that was something I did notice in the first time. The car pulls a lot harder. I like it.

Thanks for the advice anyway. I guess that my problem is solved.

Hi Steve, quick question on the SCT4. I was looking into a Vitesse controller but from what I'm reading on the forums it might not be very compatible with the SCT and some said the SCT makes the controller unnecessary.

Is that the case? I know long term I'm better off with the SCT but was trying to slowly step into modifications but it doesn't make much sense to get the Vitesse if it isn't useful with a dynosteve tune.

would a retune be required for 1.85 roller rockers?

Hey Steve,

Just wanted to say thanks for updating my tune. After I installed the LT's Headers the car still ran ok but it was off a little and it was especially noticeable on cold starts and when getting on and off the throttle. I uploaded new tune yesterday and son of a gun the difference was night and day. Thanks again. Much appreciated.
