you dont like the carid site? ive heard it was good, but im just newIt's crap.
Don't waste your money on anything from "CARID" or Andy's Auto Sport...crap places like that.
thats good to know, what is a real tune?Don't buy one, their a waste of money, instead invest in a real tune.
well thats good to know, thanks!Chips are what they call "canned" tunes as the tunes on them are the same for EVERY car. Meaning they don't take into consideration the temperature changes or altitude changes that can effect the tune.
Most "chips" have been found to actually do more harm than good, where as a lot of the things on the chips are programmed wrong and people blow up their motors from it.
A real tune is getting ahold of someone with HP Tuners or Trifecta and having them tune your car specifically to your car and driving habits. You will get a much safer and custom tune for you.
Where this is mostly true, the only thing I have to say is that a tune being the very last mod you do all depends on the car. The SS/TC's that should be your first mod as just a tune can put you over 300whp, and also with the TC's, EVERY mod you do you have to re-tune the car. The NA tho, I would say the tune is all in what the person really wants from the car, and a lot of the NA tunes mainly focus on the AT portion, and slight fueling and timing for slightly extra power throughout the power band. Other than that, not much is done with the NA.A tune should be the very last 'performance mod' to do on your car. Build up your bolt-ons or whatever else you need first so the tune will have something to work with instead of choking on stock components. A custom tune can get pricey, and it takes into account many specific variables. Once it's completed, you don't want to be changing things around and have to get retuned. You won't get as much from an NA motor as you would from FI, but if you love your car and you want the best for her, you might as well do it
I remember after I got my SS N/A tuned and fully bolted I went against a stock SS S/C from a guy in our local club and I still got owned, I was quite upset lolWell I know full well what I want from my NA tune, I want to push it as far as she can reach. Sadly, I am also aware of the limitations of running without boost. At the end of the day, if I could keep pace with a stock LSJ, I would be very satisfied.
Do what Steve did with a ported head/cams.Well I know full well what I want from my NA tune, I want to push it as far as she can reach. Sadly, I am also aware of the limitations of running without boost. At the end of the day, if I could keep pace with a stock LSJ, I would be very satisfied.
