A 4.4 sec 60 - 100 should be cake after the clutch, and the GN will be pwned. Thanks for the kind words.

SCcobaltSS is the man to go to in AZ for LSJ and LNF tunes. Does't post very often, but knows his stuff. He tuned my lsj years ago and has helped me with my lnf. No dyno but like SSlobalt 4.8 60-100 with DP, K&N filter and e47!

If it wasn't for Tom(IamBroke), David(Term), Nick(BYT), James(CSS3), John(GMTech) or Andrew(CSP) I'd never have been able to tune my own car with HP Tuners.

My tune and tunes I put on other cars are directly influenced by those I have learned from. I have formulated my own tunes out of what I know from these guys.

They all take the time and care that I admire and pass along. The best of everything

Subd and I can vouch for a handful of tuners... 4 to be exact

Trifecta... Easy to operate the tuning supplies... Mediocre response times... Not really any logging and no adjustments... Ran trifecta tune on gas.. Mid 13's on street tires...

BYT... Great tuner, great power band, dynod 357 385, terrible response time but will usually get the job done... Eventually...Probably doesn't explain as much of what he's doing as other tuners...12.8 @115 street tires

IAB... Awesome person, pioneer into ethanol tuning, knowledgable, personable, helpful... Car was just as fast when he tuned it as when BYT tuned it... Rapid responses, Explains anything you want him to thoroughly understand ls how an engine works...

CCSS3.... Quickly responds to any form of communication. ***** on the forum Knows what he's doing , havent gotten into ethanol yet but I'm really excited to get back on eee and see what he can pull out of the car...

That's it I guess

As for Trifecta Tuners here, even though that some may not be able to build a tune, people could still comment on the dealer's reaction time, if they were nice or not, and how they might of worked with vince with datalogs and that.
I havent tuned much people on this site but i try to respond asap. if i cant answer a question, i'll email vince and he usually gets back to me quick too.
I do as most do and meet the customer halfway or even thier house if needed. so far the people ive done which was a cobalt tc, camaro and base cobalt with some bolt ons, they been very satisfied and i also email the customers the tunes just incase i deploy and they wanna go back to stock.

I will try to challenge that also in response to tri dealers I also do the same with meeting the customer where ever they want, to them or half-way, anywhere and respond very quickly

Recorded 4.6 seconds 60-100 on my car in 95* humid Florida Temps on 93 octane no E-85 near me until now that I do not have my balt unfortunately. Same tune recorded 4.2 seconds 60-100 on a 40* morning. This was at least a year or more before HP Tuners had WG control for the LNF past 22 psi. I was running 22 psi tapering to 20 psi up top. 0.883 PE lambda, 17* of timing, stock cam timing at WOT.

I am assuming a E-47 blend from those timing figures. I had FF_ace's car on E-47 and meth injection up to 29* up top and 26* midrange but it made no power difference vs 23* midrange and 25* up top. It was a combo tune before we had WG control. His stock clutch was slipping so badly when he dynoed it at 25 psi the dynojet graph did not register torque until about 4700 RPMs and it still made 393 wrtq at 4700 RPMs and 353 whp at 5300 RPMs. I think if he had a better clutch and I had WG control of it back then I could have had him past 360 whp and 420 wrtq. His car and Drewbroo's were both hitting 4.6 second 60-100 times out in AZ. Drew was at 3600 FT above sea level IIRC.

SMG Tuned 2 weeks after I bought the car. Never an issue with Fred anytime I get retuned for add-ons. Hell he even retuned me for free after badmab install. Great guy to work with, prices are way more than fair, and very informative guy. Recommended to anyone in the New England area.

Yeah its a eblend car.... I never noticced any performance gain above 25-26*.. boost wise when he dynoed he never went above 23lbs so I'm kinda happy with it.. he dynoed a month before on old e setup and made 356 on more boost and less timing and my older cam tables..

Okay, I don't mean to insult you but I'm calling BS without a screen shot of the log. You sure you don't mean 5.2 secs?
