I have decided that three things I will due within the first week of my delivery are :
1) Slip on the black sheepskin seat covers
2) Insert and attach the Infinity 10" BassLink 200W Subwoofer System behind the driver seat. Depending on the sound I may take off the compartment panel completely.
3) Buy the Garage cover as I will probably leave it outside if I have not sold enough of my other toys by then.

After that getting a speed / power chip for the engine. Change the air cleaner to a K+N or

Will be great if the supercharger and turbo kits came in this price range. I'm taking complete kits. No other parts needed.
Will be interesting to see if anyone comes out with a power chip for this motor that's compatible.:)

Is there some kind of subliminal message with all of that candy floating around?!? :singing::wideyed::panda: Odd....

What is your thought behind the seat covers? Looks? Comfort?....

10-20 hp gain depending on how aggressive of a tune and what kind of fuel you want to run. On 93pump all stock should be no problem to squeeze 10-15hp
Always wondered about those ECU tunes.

What can they possibly do other than richen the mixture to make more power? Does fuel economy suffer afterwards? There must be some down side, otherwise why would GM intentionally 'de-tune' the engine for less power?

Allot. variable valve and timing engagement points, a/f ratio, timing, etc.... No down side.( unless its a bad tune) stock ecus are conservative because vehicles are driven by thousands and the tune needs to be in the middle so it works for all types of drivers and conditions. Tuning a ecu is making it personal for us that want more power and might choose to only run a premium fuel to achieve the hp. Poor mpg is your right foots problem :) On a modern efi system adding more fuel mix won't yield more hp but in most cases lead to bigger problems. I have a 764 rwhp supra on E85 and if i'm not too naughty on the highway it still gets 19mpg.

Will you be able to show and assist on ECU tuning for the SS during your time at SEMA? I am almost certain that I will be making the trip from PHX for this year's show.

I would love to try/test an ECU tune and give you some feedback! Also, what are you looking at for ranges of cost to do this?

Sorry for the questions... -There should probably be an ECU tuning thread.

Glad to hear from someone with experience that there really is something to be gained and no downside. Just can't figure why they would not take advantage of all the sensor data (knock, F/A, TPS, etc.) and not optimize all those things to begin with if there is no down side. After all, the ECU knows exactly what any driver is doing with their right foot and can tell what octane fuel is in the tank with a little running time.

Don't worry about questions i'm more than happy top answer them as best as I can! I won't be able to do it at SEMA. To tune I would need my computer and the software and the vehicle on a dyno. Allot of companies make tunes for cars but to get the best tune you really need each vehicle tuned independently because every engine has its small differences and location such as elevation, average temp etc play a big factor in tuning. Technology now has allowed for remote tuning and that might be a possibility. I'm meeting up with a old friend at SEMA that lives in CA he's a very well known tuner and I can check with him if their is anyone in your area he would recommend.

My guess is it would be to to leave a nice cushion for safety. But because of that it provides many jobs for the aftermarket :) Tunes are safe but it does take a good tuner and someone that knows efi tuning to do it right. Get the wrong person to do it and make a bunch of HP but the engine can go BOOM fast.

True that! Especially if turbo'd ;)
