Anyone know where i can find a place that offers trifecta tuning near NH?
I can seem to find one.

I was also curious about the cost vs. gains.
The ss sc tuning they did didnt seem great. One of them dynoed low with the tune, conisdering it even had some aftermarket parts.
The other had a stage 2 kit i think, and with the tune was around 245 or something.

Would it be worth the money to do injectos, sc pulley, and tune?
So far ive got k&n typhoon intake and hks muffler, but stock 2.25 pipp it looks like.

Yup, and I now own the cable because I send them a map every couple months with new parts on the car. Everyone that finds out how I tuned the car is highly impressed with the outcome since I have never touched a dyno with it as of yet.

I would do a little more to your car before tuning unless you plan on spending the full 600 (I think is correct for the SS model) full stage 2 probably would be worth while.

alight, good to know. For $250, seems cheap for a tune at home. But yes, id like to get a stage 2 kit. I think all that includes in shorter belt, sc pulley, injectors right?

Is there a way to get things separatley for cheaper? I saw the gm pulley kit on ebay for like 110.

I would personally go through ZZP, but if you find it cheaper on ebay and it's not used just use caution.

I am going straight to the stage 2 kit from ZZP when I do my SCer

Remember, there is always going to be something more you want to do so plan on possibly keeping the cable.

What year SS did you get? I believe all SS's can be done with HP tunes as well on a dyno.

the belt and pulley is ZZP. I would just go to them and try to get a deal for the pulley and injectors at once. They also can tell you the best injectors to get for your application as well.

You wont blow the engine up by going to stage 2. Just plan on some internal upgrades in the future and you can start increasing the boost. Easy 13s fully blown

what about pulley size for the sc? im not sure what size to pick. Is the smallest size bad because it will raise the boost too much?

Id like to keep it reliable for everyday driving

Hopefully Banker or MP81 looks at this thread becuase they would know for sure. I'm just preparing for the SC purchase in Dec.'ish.

My understanding of the smaller pulley will not over do your boost level since it comes in the stage 2 kit. It just spools faster.

im not positive, but from what ive read each size you go down, bumps the max boost up slightly.
The issue with the kit, is they give you like 6 options for sizes -_- i have no clue haha

I would be suprised if you didn't have traction control.

I autocross and my car handles better than a lot of the cars out there. I'm consistantly in the top 20 running with STI's, RX-8's, BRZ's, etc. I would say leave it on.
