    2.5 upper pulley airaid cai and ls7 ported and polished throttle body. I also have the diablo sport trinity 91 octane pulley tune but going to sell that and just get this custom tune done. You think I will be able to tell a big difference? From what I've heard the pre loaded pulley tune on the trinity is pretty conservative.

    Church tuned my 09 sedan both motor and trans and did an amazing job. Boy has skills......the final numbers were shocking considering my only mods are intake and axle back exhaust. Hey blantin...im thinking of doing that duel map tune before our season opener brother. Ill need the extra 100 ponys to keep up.

    It feels good with the diablo tune no problems. Just hear everyone saying get a dyno tune over a canned tune so seeing how I'm most likely done modding my car for awhile thought I'd get a custom tune for my car just want everyone's opinion on weather it's worth it or if I should just keep the canned tune?

    Well, it's probably too late, but I was going to suggest hitting HavasuSteve up prior to going.

    I know he went to Church's, but I also think there was a particular issue, but it had to do with a specific mod.

    Looking forward to hearing about the results.

    BTW, I think Church uses EFILive, if I am not mistaken. Nothing wrong with it, but I have HPTuners Pro, so, for me at least, it's more of an inconvenience, thus I am planning to use another local dyno tuner's services.

    EDIT: I am going to be over in that area in a few hours...maybe I'll swing by.

    Yes feels alot better! What a difference a custom tune makes. Just shows that canned tunes dont do our car justice.

    Very nice. Like I said the boy has skills. You should try and come out to Auto Club Speedway the end of this month for the Cadillac Challenge season 2 opener. You dont have to race and there will be quite a few V's just hanging out. Good luck and hope you can make it out to meet everyone plus its nice to show the others how the cadillac segment is growing in the grass roots racing scene.
