I personally like having both torque plates on while honing but one is close enough
So you decide to stroke it or do rods and pistons, I missed that part.
Hehe, yeah he used two.
It's going to have a bore and I'm doing rods and pistons. I'm keep the stock crank shaft.

The transmission shifted weird in auto with his tune and shifted normal in manual mode. No idea if he only changed S-mode or not. I can say that he spent time looking into researching the "correct" settings suggesting he didn't know from experience. I have my tune posted in this thread in the OP. You can use that to ask people what they think of that tune.
When my brother talked to him on the phone after the car broke, he kept catching him in lies about how the car broke. It was a lot harder to explain how it went bad with an ASE mechanic. He went out of his way to find other ways for things to cause the problem, all things which were proven not to be the cause. From heads lifting, to something inside my intake... neither of these were the issue as there were clear signs of the car running lean with intake valves being bent and an exhaust valve melted through.
I will be completely fine with him losing $5k in business, like I lost in repairs.

I had plans for beefing up my driveline and going for quite a bit more power. But after driving mine as a daily driver at nearly 600rwhp for a bit now, i've pretty much come to the conclusion that more power with a daily driver would serve no purpose other than dyno queen bragging rights lol. I have a lot of trouble hooking at as it is, all the extra HP from here would be put to no use. Ya, i'm sure it would help me from 100mph up, but honestly how often are you going that fast. But anyway, I hope your build turns out great bud.
Yeah, I was pretty upset, yet slightly excited. I'm doing what I always wanted to do but it's very expensive. I could have spent my money and time rebuilding the rear end and transmission. But as you mention, that might be a waste of power. For road racing, 600rwhp is going to be a lot to handle, even my 354rwhp N/A engine spun loose a few times. I'm currently looking at getting smaller rims that are wider, which hold cheap R-Comp tires so I can burn through them without freaking out. lol

OP -- you should post this on LS1Tech. Get the word out. ****, even put a complaint in with the BBB (who cares if he is registered or not?).
I will be posted on LS1Tech, the other board, LSX board, Camaro5 board, and several others if he doesn't respond this week. I waited until I confirmed with proof that it was the tuners fault and waited until he had an opportunity of reasonable time to respond. I don't want him snaking out of this in a thread by saying he didn't have that chance. Well, he has had many now. After my engine failed, I towed the car up for him to look at, and I gave him a chance then. I asked if he'd R&R the engine, and then he offered a 20% discount. I said that wasn't good enough and I'd rather do it on my own. At that point, I didn't know for sure it was him and I didn't want to force him to cover costs that he wasn't responsible for. When I was towing my car back, he said (referring to some other shop) that problems happen and it's how they respond which is important. Here I am, multiple e-mails, phone calls, even towed my car, and he has offered only a 20% discount for R&R.
