NEED A TUNER!!!!!

So my new to me goat has some quirks I need situated. Foremost, every now and again the engine dies on me when slowing down, so I assume whoever did the tuning for the setup that's in it now didn't get the air tables right.

Where is a good dyno tuner within 3-4 hours of the Indianapolis area? I've heard good and bad things from Speed Inc and Modern Muscle, both of which are a bit further than I'd like to go but will if those are my only options.

Any and all help is appreciated, thanks in advance!!!

It isn't a blue GTO with black rims and a carbon fiber hood/spoiler, is it?

You didn't happen to have the same problems did you? If so, how did you fix it?

A tune should take care of that. Modern Muscle tuned my car and I am very happy with the results. Makes good power and has excellent street manners.

I only did on hard stops, but it was because my cam was extremely aggressive and I had an aluminum flywheel. Not much could be done to 100% prevent it.

I'll be in the Fort Wayne area this weekend so if anyone knows of a good tuner around there PLEASE tell me. I'm at wits end now that I've done everything I could think of and it still idles super high when coasting until I come to a complete stop. Makes it incredibly hard to coast through my neighborhood to not piss off the neighbors.

Well, both those shops mentioned, are premier shops in the LSx business overall, so the drive might be worth it.

Otherwise, being in Indiana, you have Lingenfelter.

Here's something interesting...

I unplugged the MAF sensor and they car ran perfectly fine. Didn't idle high on me at all over a 20 mile drive, although it did try to die on me a couple of times. It did die on me when I pulled back in my subdivision and then while going through the neighborhood it was idling high.

I seriously don't understand WTF this could be lol

Btw, I got someone to tune it this weekend so well see if he can help my cause
