    I guess this is pretty good. 420 rwtq. I suppose this is about what a stock GT350 puts down? Maybe I could do a little better without those big heavy PP2 wheels and a K&N air filter.

    FYI - my car makes that rattlely sound after 1K rpm upto 2K rpm, but my oil filter (left over from yesterday's oil change) which we cut into was perfectly clean.

    Damn. That's an E85 specific tune, right? vs. a Flex?

    I can't believe how much stronger my car feels with just the tune and I've got an aFE dry filter (with the airbox carbon trap removed). I'm thinking about cat deletes vs. headers, since I'm running corn, it wouldn't be stanky :D

    E85 specific - but the Flex Tune which I also have was essentially identical - the graphs basically sat on top of one another. The exhaust smelled like water vapor. I may try that filter.

    I think a good set of light, forged wheels would be a better investment than headers. But I'm biased against headers.

    Are you able to post the Dyno graph?

    What would be the expected power delta between a stock tune stock car and a stock car on a 93 tune compared to your car?

    Cool, yeah, I'm really happy with my AED so far.

    You know, I sort of just don't want to deal with headers, a decent mid-ranged setup plus install (those days are over for me :D), will set me back $1500 (if new), but the good shop I'd use is like an hour away, so sitting all day, or having to drive back and forth, etc.

    Heck, in the shorter term, I may just wind up doing a Steeda H-pipe for fun, I can DIY that, it'll sound awesome, cost $140 :D

    I didn't get a copy - I understand there is substantial difference going to E85, but I hear that not much so between stock and stock on "93".

    What was your stock numbers vs these? Seems like a very solid gain

    That's my hp curve, but you have a bit more torque.

    Don't know - never tried. But it's safe to say I have >500 hp now which really was my goal.

    Does Shaun only tune with the SCT X4 Tuner?

    Shaun uses SCT software.
    I believe he prefers the X4 hardware.

    AED tuned my old 17. He is not on board (yet!) tuning 18+ With superchsrgers, unless you are running race gas, so not gonna happen. Probably a business decision to manage risk. We have 12:1 static compression.

    Correct. As of the last time I spoke with him, this is the case. Shaun is a big advocate of E85 at the minimum.
