Let me start off by explaining my long running issues and then get to the good stuff.

It has been more than two year I have been complaining, that there is no one in the DC metro area that knows how to tune a maggied car. I have had "bucking" issues since the tune from Tony's corvette (never ever go there). Tried various options but no permanent fix. Lindsay guys can support my frustration as they were frustrated as well. So, with the help of God "Luke" - He calls me up and says, there maybe a shop that can help me, but he is afraid to send me on a rat hole. But as bold as I can be, take the chance and try out this shop named BEHE PERFORMANCE.

Just got my car back from them after two weeks - Nothing but pure joy as I had the following issues along with bucking.

1. Maggie installation (Crapy - done by Moore Cadillac - never go to them)
2. CAI tube not secure
3. Fuel consumption 9 - 10 miles on the Highway :crying2:
4. Tony's corvette did the tune and showed numbers that I was making 476 at the wheel (bU** S88IT. Hmmm - then why is my ass handed to me by a stock V )
5. Re-configured my MAF, intall new spark plugs, re-wires, - nothing helped with the original problem by Tony and I was down thousands of $$$.

Guy's at BEHE PERFORMANCE - Did not tune my car, they completly re did my setup and showed me so many problems that I was living with. Even they felt bad for me.

Now they made the car run efficient, harder (boy does it pull hard), and the maggie screams with joy.

I am very happy with their work and like to Thank them and Luke for looking out for me. Finally, after two years - I know what a maggied V feels like. Before I was just carrying extra 100 lbs. Look at the dyno with old setup with maggie and cleaned up setup by the tuners and what a difference. OH BTW - They did install a Comp Cam from Lingenfelter as well. Now the car is truly a BEAST.

ANYONE LOOKING TO TUNE THEIR CAR IN DC AREA - PLEASE CONTACT JOHN AT BEHE PERFORMANCE. THEY WILL ALSO BE OUT AT THE V III DAY WITH A ZR-1.

Quick,

I am sure you are glad it is finally right. It sucks knowing the potential is there, but no one can tune it right :banghead:, or they tell you its all good and eagerly take your money. Congrats, I'm sure new tires will be next, or maybe a new rear end? N'JOI

Mick, That's good stuff. How were they cost wise ? Not looking for $$$, just were they reasonable ?

Re: DC area Tunner - Prayers answered

The major problem was the way the tune was done, but in order to do the tune the correct way there were too many problems with the install of the maggie from the start and the fuel to air ratios were way off. But so many fixes had to be done to resolve the major bucking issue that I had been living with for over two years and the under powered maggie.

I am not the one to be so technical, but the tuning folks explained that there were too many underlying problems before the tune could be done correctly.

They are very reasonable as compared to other tuners I dealt with and paid for. Ron - I absolutly recommend them for our group.

Amen, D.C.-area brethren.

I just dropped my V off at Behe today -- they did the dyno check last week. Pricing wise, they aren't at all unreasonable. I'm just glad to have someone who can listen, knows (a lot) more than I do and clearly has some LS experience.

John really seems to know his stuff, man. You should see some of the monster GTO's they've got stashed up there -- they've got one there now with a custom rear end like nothing I've ever seen. It looks stable & strong the way they did the cradle etc. Wow. (Maybe they'll post some pics.)

Last week while I was there, I saw the black V with the (now local legendary) Maggie tuning problems after Behe retuned it. It was running like a kitten (I watched it go in & out for the test drive) and the dyno sheets were amazing (especially the before after Behe reinstalled & tuned it).

Luke, my thanks for pointing me his way.

I wonder who you are speaking of hmmmm:thumbsup:

Luke is the finder and I would be the first CTS-V to try them out - again anyone close to these guys - Don't hesitate, just follow the leed and you will not regret it.
