    The website isn't much - but Matt has tuned a number of late model GM products.

    Search for LT1z CTS-V, lt1z tbss or lt1z on youtube to get an idea of his work.

    Well got it setup with matt and he seems to be pretty cool. Hes kind of backed up right now but he got me in a spot to do my baseline run before I install Timmys intake, and many more mods in the future.

    Cool. He's a good guy and has been getting good results from other GM platforms.

    Re: Nor Cal Tuning

    Tuesday (6/24) is my first baseline dyno for this car to see what it has as of now. Currently has just exhaust done. Will be tuning for Tim's intake and exhaust. Also hoping to get Tim's heat exchanger installed tomorrow. Next will be his lower pulley/injectors.

    Re: Nor Cal Tuning

    Did the baseline dyno today. Was pretty happy with it. After about a 1.5 hr drive to get there and not much time between me getting there and putting it on the dyno, I still got a pretty decent baseline. Ended up pulling at 381 HP and 378 torque to the wheels. Sadly I was not able to get video like I wanted to (GoPro was being finicky). Also due to work, my tune had to be rescheduled. So it won't be until Aug 8th that I get the intake and tune done.

    I had to cancel. I left the country for a mission. Hopefully I will be back in a few days to setup a new date.
