Who's the one offering these tips and tuning service? What kind of experience does he have? Read below to find out!
I, like you, am a car enthusiast who has found the value and fun-factor in the LT1 engine. I enjoy it in a GM F-Body: my six-speed '95 Camaro Z28.
Since the year 2000 or so, I've learned how the car responds to different tuning methods. And after installing a larger, aftermarket camshaft in 2007, have really learned what makes LT1s go.
Much of what I offer on the site, including the tuning service, is very simple: as easy as clicking a toggle switch in software. But some of it requires a repeated process, which can only practically be done in your own car with your own tuning setup.
I've been offering this service as a fellow LT1 owner for many years, with good success and feedback. Over the years, with just an informal, personal webpage offering the service, I had tuned over 30 PCMs for LT1 owners just like you; some with F-Bodies and some transplanting the engine/PCM into other vehicles.
But now, I've started this website dedicated to offering what I've learned free, as well as my inexpensive tuning service, with 3292 orders placed since it went online in late 2007. I have tuned everything from stock 4.3L L99s to bolt-on LT1s & LS1s, to forced induction LT1s, to 396ci LT1s with very large cams and high compression. And I am still an LT1 owner, just like you!
Several people have asked why my prices are so low compared to other tuners. My answer is two-fold:
Throttle response from idle was smoother than before, car seemed to hesitate when I tapped the throttle [before]. Now it is smoother. Smooth RPM buildup during entire range.
Just want to say I really appreciate how you run your business, all the personal attention and service beyond the service you are selling (reprogrammed chip). I was self employed for 4+ years and ran my business the same way. So good job and keep it up.
First off, excellent job with the write-up! It has no doubt helped a great deal thus far... Thank you very much for your help!
If you send me emails from an @aol.com, @gmail.com or @hotmail.com address, or signup and/or place orders, but do not receive a reply from me or emails from my website, please do not think I am ignoring you! Lately, those email providers are randomly blocking emails from my servers. If you are on Facebook, like my page and contact me from there to ensure I've received your message and request a reply on there. Thank you for your understanding!
Do you need a good tune, but cannot afford the down-time of mailing your PCM to me? Do you not have any interest in long-term tuning where you would need to buy your own equipment and tuning software? Now I can loan you one of my tuning kits to allow me to fine-tune your 1986-2003 PCM to match your individual setup, without you needing to send me your PCM. No more downtime, and a fully tuned vehicle!
