No. And your GMS1 is only giving you about 275-280 ish at the wheels. The trifecta tune/hp tuners tune is much better than the GMS1 tune by a long shot (as some tuners have found that GM likes to run their cars pretty lean and thus causes a lot of knock with stock/upgraded tunes). The Trifecta/HP tuners tune will over write your GMS1 tune, but the GMS1 tune is a good one to have for a base as it configures your computer for the BAR3 maps.

I wouldn't put money into the GMS 1, I have the trifecta/hptuners combo tune and it's awesome. I only have a couple bolt-ons and pretty much stock exhaust and it's destroying my clutch lol in a good way. If you beef up the power with a good tune like that I'd recommend thinking about another clutch. I am getting a stage 3 clutchmasters and a flywheel... someone said I may have warped the flywheel but who knows. If you do get a tune you should probably (not 100%) necessary get at least hot side charge piping, the stock plastic stuff has blown apart on people pushing 20-25psi.

I just got a quote from a local tuner, and it all sounds like a good deal but he said i would have to upgrade to premium fuel, i thought we only had to upgrade if we went boosted, true or false?

From what I know,the # bar map sensors enable the boost/interceptor gauge to read over 23 psi.

I didnt really have any trouble,but for extra assurance you could get the forged bpv. I got it
