I was recently at a the strip and met a buddy of mine who came up to me rather excited telling me how he got a programmer, i have almost no clue exactly what you can do with those, he said hell program my car for me and itll make a big difference....

Im confuse on exactly what you can get out of programer, is it a good idea, is it usefull, what can i gain out of it, it ther any hassle involved (sorry for being so clueless, i dont have much experiance with these types of things, but im willing to learn,)

thanks alot guys.

If you are stock it wont do much but I think disable the cags defeat and raise your rev limiter if you are inclined, there are more experienced here to let you know, but if you are stock, I wouldnt bother for right now, if you have money to tool with its a neat devise that gives you info of your car's computer data :jammin:

Take your car to a professional tuner with a dyno...like Phoenix or MTI here in Atlanta. They will hook up a computer to your car and use a program called LS1edit (or other similar type). They will dyno your car and check your timing, air/fuel ratios, rev limters, etc. They will then 'tweak' each and every part of that until they attain the max HP/TQ that's safe to run. You'll know exactly how much power your car has and be able to modify it over the years (exhaust, etc) and see the difference.

This is the only way to do it right.

I can pull 10-14 rwhp all day long out of a stock Z06 and throttle response that will rip your head off. :thumb:

Ok Tom. I'm in for the extra 15 HP how much, and will it still be ok on 93 pump gas. I do not want to run on the lean ragged edge. Are you going to make it to the fest? By the way I installed your CAI at Panzers this weekend with the help of mjustmike, and it was a very easy mod. No codes and feels great. How often do you recommend cleaning the K & N filter? Thanks, Don

no problem with 93.
I'll reset your fans, remove the cags, smooth out your timing for throttle responce, increase your timing up top for power, and we'll drive her a couple of times so I can scan to get your LTFTs in order, and lean out your PE table.
