    How many of us are using HP Tuners?

    Just wondering who has HP tuners that they use with their V? I'm thinking about picking up a handheld and thought maybe I could steal someones tune to try out that has the same mods as me.

    I just got 3 wait4me tunes. I'm very happy with the results. I would think that if you're heavily modded, you'd want to go to a shop that can dyno tune the car.

    My car was dyno tuned using hp tuners but not by me and my tuner will not tune with out dynoing the car in most cases. Ryan

    Yes, I use it. Once I get home I will email you what I have done so far. Just a few tweeks to the engine portion. Most of the work has been done to the Transmission and I LOVE the changes!!

    Re: How many of us are using HP Tuners?

    I'm using HPTuners as well. These cars are no joke. I changed some throttle tables to eliminate the delay on tip-in and it caused my car to go into reduced power mode last night.

    This is the tune that did it. I put the throttle tables back to stock and changed a couple transmission tables back just in case.

    I'm still learning this transmission. I have a lot of experience tuning my LS3 71 Vette and my wife's 6.0 91 Camaro, but those both have non-electronic transmissions and cable throttles.

    I'd love to see other people's tunes.

    Your settings are much more aggressive than mine. I haven't pushed it yet. I am still a little leary of making changes that are so aggressive.

    P.S. I sent you another email.

    550- You can't load a HP Tune with a handheld. Only Jesse's tunes.

    Re: How many of us are using HP Tuners?

    My V is stock at the moment. The only thing I did in my tune was call for a 11.5:1 AFR in the PE table. I just got home from the dyno and it made 400 to the tires at 12.8psi. Uncorrected power was 425. I'll start a new thread for that once I take a pic of the printout.
