Nice! So will it be a program tuner we can do right at home? Any noticeable gains in hp and tq. I'm hoping it comes out soon.

Yes alot noticable shift point are different a little more smoother,Throttle response is amazing, Its not such a dog on take off.
When we figure it out 100% were going to dyno it on stock tune,89 tune,and 91 tune.
It does eat up more gas but to me its worth it I will keep in touch and let you know as i get more info. But yes very noticable One of the GT guys was behind me and he said it definitely was faster than stock so only the numbers will tell .

Thanks man. Getting more power is worth it in the end for me as well. I'm not too worried about it. You know a ballpark price for the tune?

Hell yeah man I already tried having one of my buddies crack the ecu a few weeks ago and he's still wanting to try and get into it. But as long as this tune comes out I have a free dyno run on him. I talked to him about it this morning and he's just as pumped as me. He owns a gt and wants to see what our ly7s can put out. According to the Aussies it's definitely got potential.
