    Best advice i have gotten is to have all the nannies removed(i hope the tuner can identify all of them), and also pay alot of attention to the shift points and tq management. A/F ratio is the biggie but the tq nannies have to be removed to feel the gain I have heard.

    My appointment is Feb. 4th @ 9 am. They said it should take about 3 hours to get her dialed in. I migh go by earlier in the week to have me a new O2 bung hole added for the dyno so I save some time the day of.
    I guess this is normal as they want to monitor the AF ratio on the dyno equipment as well as on the HPTuner off the factory O2 sensor. I have heard this being done on Forced induced tuned cars. Has anyone else had to have one? I'll know more about sharing the tune when I actually get to talk to Ed (the main tuner). I have eight credits so if I any left after getting the STS and the Denali tuned I will surely let you partake of the tune.

    I definately would like the shift points tweaked which should be in there, but like you without having seen their software I'm not sure what points they have for tuning yet, although like you I seen others mention tq nannies. I will almost certainly have the speed limiter moved up about 10 mph incase I come across a 04-07 CTS-V .

    STS-Vs use wideband 02 sensors from the factory, so they should be able to monitor the mixture with a handheld instead of welding in a new bung.
