Well almost.
Tony (Holedigger) got AntiVenom's dyno in the ground last week and dynojet finally sent the speed sensor. I had Jim Lembo's and sonofadragracer's car on and off all day yesterday until after midnight.
Going back today to tune a couple of cars. This is the greatest thing since velcro shoelaces. :thumb:

Had a bone stock white '99 FRC that pulled 289.7 and with a little PCM tuning managed to get just under 300 out of her.

Got my benchtop set up a few months back. Comes in and goes out the same day in most cases. For mail orders I go through my .bin files and get a car with mods as close to yours as I can get and write over your file. I will be getting most of the scanning programs on the market so I can read your scan and really tweak it.
PM me for the details. :)

I've been wrestling with the idea to become a supportting vendor but I really don't want to quit my role here as Senior Moderator. I've been here since day 2. I think some might find a conflict of interest.

Just under 450 RWHP Jack. I was hoping for more but the Vararam is holding it back IMO.
Hell even with the temps down at 60 degrees the IAT was still 6-8 degrees over ambient.

Thanks Tom, When i called Jim last night, y'all were just strapping his Z down to the dyno. He could not have been happier with the time you spent working on dialing his puter in with the tune. Looking forward to seeing the new dyno and hopefully paying to get a couple of pulls to see where my Z #'s out. :cool:

Going to be doing a dyno day real soon Jack. I'll finish your tune then. :)
Hope that flu isn't kicking your butt too bad. Stay well my friend.

Good luck Tom. I hope everything goes well for you on the tuning and dynos. If I still have my Z06 when I move back to Florida, I will have to make a drive over and see you. Since the dealer here in Texas "reflashed" (column lock recall) my computer when I took it in to get the fuel senders replaced, I have to get it tuned again. When Ernie did it for me a couple of years ago, we picked up 18 rwhp & rwt with the tune for my mods. So, I know there is plenty left to be replaced on my car now. See you soon. :thumb:

Good luck buddy!

Hey guys, Greg's (Antivenom) new shop with the dyno is very sweet, helped him do some painting over there last weekend. Will be putting my car on the dyno over there this week.

Between the great mechanical work that Greg can do, and the tuning Tom can do, its a really good combo, and will make for a formidable shop in the Tampa area.

Just remember- yall aren't allowed to make Don's car any faster than mine :lol: He decided to sell his Eclipse and buy the FRC after riding around with me in Nov. :cheers:
