Terrible investment. For the LT1 some cars even lose power with them. Definitely won't be able to compensate for major mods.

Save your money for a custom tune.

Yeah its just a generic tune that Hypertech did based on a stock LT1. They lean the fuel out and increase WOT timing, and a lot of LT1 cars knock with a Hypertech tune because of that.

Plus the hypertech does NOTHING for part throttle, so with big mods its not going to be able to cope. Custom tune is the only way to go for anything wilder than cai and catback IMO.

Check the board FAQ, there's an article in there on cat backs. Basically they are all going to give you about the same hp increase...so its your choice based on sound.

Anything but Flowmaster, put it that way.
