Tune and cai question again.

Hey everyone! Im looking to get a tune and a cai and i was just wondering at my elevation (over 6000 ft.) if one tune/intake is better for this altitude then the other? Also... is there any place in the Salt Lake or Denver area i can take it to get a tune?

I got over 15 rear wheel horses from the Vararam and Scott at US Performance in Loveland is doing my tuning with HP Tuners. He is resonable and a little closer to Wyoming.

2008 G8 GT - 35% Tint, 345 Gears, Livernois cam, Underdrive pully, 160 degree thermostat, Vararam, Kook's 1&7/8 longtube, Solo Mach Shorty w/J's, FTI 3600 Stall converter, HP Tuners, MT Drag Radials. 422 RWHP/387TQ no NOS, 536 RWHP/478TQ with NOS.

Best 1/4 mile of 12:07 / 116.5mph @ 3500 feet altitude using NOS. Best 1/4 mile 12:80 / 109mph @ 5800 feet altitude non NOS.

Went with the roto fab

I just ordered my roto fab last Friday. I was on the fence for a while over vararam and roto. Went with roto because i like the looks and the quality seems better. Please let me know how your tune goes i might be heading to loveland to get mine done if yours turns out well. Thanks again for the info!

I hear the Roto Fab is really nice, I haven't had any problems with the VaraRam and got good results for the buck.

My tune has been ongoing and I am very happy with it. I Scot at US Performance put my Livernois cam kit in last week and without a retune I'm at 402hp at the rear. I ran 12:85 @ 107mph at Julesburg yesterday and still got 23mpg driving there and back with no AFM anymore.

If you come down to US Performance let me know the date and time and I'll try to come by.

I have a Vector tune and Vararam, and pretty happy with it. Especially being able to email back and forth with Kirk to dial in the tune. Takes longer, but I can flash back to stock if I need to take it to the dealer.

Gone but not forgotten:

Thunder Racing LS3 cam, 224/236 .609/.607, 117+2; UD Crank
Custom Tune, ARH 1 3/4" LT's, Vararam, Yank 3200, Dave's plate kit
Pre-Cam: 372whp/361wtq at 7200ft, [email protected], 1.84 60ft, 8574ft DA

I have been trying to decide between a vector tune or just trying a cortex. Im probably going to go with a vector.
