Just installed Mac mid length headers, Off road y-pipe , and a magnaflow no-cat back.. sound is good. I think I like it..(Im used to my 387 with true 3in duels single chambers, now thats loud!).

What a pain to put in.. my back still hurts . Started by myself at 10am fired it up and drove her at 7pm.. no lunch break but plenty of beer.

In the video it sounded like the spark cuts out, I hopping this is the ECU learning the new mod.. I drove it about 7mi. today and it ran funny (shifts and trac control were actig weird) at first then started to clear up..

I can't tell from the pictures. Are you running all four O2's?

Do you have a datalogger? Wideband O2?

If not I'd highly recommend getting something. Personally I use HPTuners with Zeitronix wideband O2.

I have a Zetronix that I use for my bug but I dont have a laptop (yet)so I really cant do any data logging... does the hp tuner allow you to tune out the rear O2's?

and can you use it on more then one vehical?


I have a lid, air scoop for under the aircleaner and a thottle body that will go on next..

After that I want to hook the nitrous back up and have it tuned.

hopin for mid 12's

Hptuners has different licensing from when I bought it. Mine was for all 2002 model year F bodies. So I could tune any 2002 Fbody. Now they changed to a credit system where you can buy a specific vehicle.

Yes you can turn off your rear O2's.

Start with the tune right away. Factory set mine pig rich @ WOT, something 11.5:1, dial in the VE table, PE, timing and you'll pick up a good amount.

What year is your car? Stick or auto?

99 auto,
Its a toss up between a tuner and having the ecu flashed and dyno'ed. the cost is about the same.. for now Im going to keep my eye out for a good deal on a tuner. But Im not planning on dyno time at least until next month... hopefully buisness at work will pick up and Ill be able to afford it...



Mabey Ill shoot over the right coast and pay you a visit, mabey con you into a free tune.....

I re-read my last post and edited it. I can only tune 2002 Fbody's, so I couldn't help with your car. Besides that would be one hell of an expensive tune.

Bummer on no laptop. One of the cool things with the new HPTuners is you don't need a laptop. You can datalog to their hardware then take the interface to your PC and download the data. However to flash the tune you'll need a long cable from your desktop PC Very Happy

What about a converter? That was a great upgrade for my car. I wanted to keep mine on the mild side so the wife can drive it and only went with a 3000 stall (thanks Jeep for the install help). I dropped 0.5 seconds in the 1/4 from the converter alone.

I wish I had the money a few months ago when I did the rear main...

Actually my next big project is going to be the oil pan seal. I noticed that I going to have to drop the K-member next oil change....
