I am not familiar with these newer superchips products, but i doubt they offer a pre-loaded tune for the ls7 maf.

What is your overall goal for the car regarding mods?

Current: 2009.5 SBM G8 GT, Premium Package, Sunroof, Pat G. ECM/TCM Tune, Roto-Fab 102mm CAI, LS7/LS3 MAF, Kooks 1 7/8" LT's, SOLO HFC's, SOLO Mach-Shorty Balanced Catback, SOLO 3.5" Tips, 19" Sport Package Wheels, GXP Steering Wheel, GXP Diffuser, Neondials, VG Sharkfin II, Debadged (Except Arrowheads), Hood-Vent Mod, Lower Grille Mod

Next: RCR Modified Intake Manifold, RCR Ported TB, Powerbond UDP, Suspension Upgrades

Theres a 3.27 out of 2010 camaro by me i want to swap out with and then dod with probably lunati cam and kooks lth with solo mach 3 with hi flow cats but thats way down the road. First i would do less expensive 3.27 swap and then tune for ls7 maf and 3.27 at same time but hoped there was something i could do now with MAF

I am pretty sure i read that there is a tune for the 3.27 loaded from the superchips tuner...however probably not for the ls7 maf.

I assume you currently do not have a tune. So basically you can do anything. Most will say get a dyno tune (if you have a reputable tuner near you). If not, then IMO, the next best thing would be rick or pat (unless you know, or know someone with knowledge of hp tuners).

Get a budget and talk to some tuners and see what they can do. I have pat, and he did my seperate tune for the ls7 maf. He, along with a few others, can remote tune for basically anything.

Im actually interested in buying hp tuner device and learning what i can. I emailed 2 reputable ls tuners in mass near me and got a quote for cam swap and dod delete and in the invoice they said 800 for a tune so lol i figured for now buying hptuners could be a good idea for knowledge and money. Thanks for the reply btw

Trying to tune a cammed car is a pretty steep curve to start on. Most tuners wont' charge much for a gear update. We would most likely charge $500 for the first tune and if you came back to us with a gear change we probably wouldn't even charge you for the update. It only takes about 5 minutes to reflash for a gear swap

We are your one stop shop for Holden Performance. We have the best deals on all the hottest parts such as Corsa, ARH, Kooks, SW, Roto-Fab Solo Performance and much more with installation and tuning available. When you're ready to order pm/call us for your G8Board discount. Our pricing and service is second to none.

I dont have a cammed car its stock internals but when the 3.27 swap is done the only thing that needs to be done is the speedo correct? It wouldnt disturb anything else besides that right?
