I didn’t need to retune once I fitted mine.

I asked rob @ PBD who does my tuning and he said it would be ok and I would get a natural increase in power. He was right. Went from 632 to 704 whp.

Best bet is to speak to who ever tunes your car.

I’m Procharged as well and installed a set of Kooks without retuning. I’m waiting on a return fuel system to arrive and will be switching to E85. Just going to wait to retune it once the fuel system is installed.

It’s been a month and over 500 miles and I’ve had no issues or CEL’s. Car runs great and has more power.

Same here i'll be expecting fuel system soon as well! I'll be waiting on that. You'll see ridiculous power with the setup!

No tuning usually needed for LT’s. Wideband closed loop lambda targeting makes this attainable. MAF will meter the additional volume.

Most tuners adjust transport delay no matter the tune. If you’re already tuned you’ll be fine.

actually you are relieving back pressure so depending on what you're running specifically, you will see LESS boost than you normally would see. So you wouldn't need a retune.

bump for this as well, who’s running headers on a Whipple cal? What codes did you have to have turned off?
Just instaled my headers it runs good, loud as hell with stainless power and corsa extremes, makes me smile like a freaking child, no codes though so far which is great! They were installed today will be speaking with lund to just make sure things are running smooth
