Well just got the GTO tuned after a month long fiasco of locked computers and previous owners. I'm happy to report the tuning went great and the guys at LEP are second to none! Garth is willing to sit down, discuss goals, discuss prices, and troubleshoot if need be. I was thoroughly impressed with the range of cars in his busy shop and have attended a few events his shop put on in the past. I really care about a shop's reputation and since a few people have had nothing but good things to report, I jumped on one of LEP's tuning specials. They would love to get into the GTO community and build up some more beasts! Hint: There's a maggied GTO in there now putting down 5xx to the wheels! So try out the shop, you won't be disappointed. :pimp:

Here are my results. The car has great driveability, no knocking, dyno & street tuned, and WOT is teh sex. A little hard on the wallet, but you get so used to pulling from 2000-6000rpm. I can finally throw down a big scratch into 3rd. I can't be happier with the tune.

Gained 21hp/14tq and plenty under the curve with only these mods: AEM intake, JBA shorties, OEM midpipes, Magnaflow Catback. Not bad for 103F and 12% humidity. Very impressed with the A/F too.



Here's the forums I was referencing above:

My car needs a tune in the worst way. I also have a friend that just bought an '06 with cam, Volant, Kooks, catless mids, I think SLP cat-backs, Fast 92, Heads, and I think something else. It was tuned for 93 octane and he needs to get it set for Vegas fuel.

So, is there any other people that are wanting to go get this done? Maybe we can make it into a Dyno-Day and get a bulk rate discount?

Yep that's exactly what would happen. I've gotten several PMs from guys with vettes and GTOs that would like to check out the shop. Ask da beast how my tune ran, I'm startin to pull on him now. Watch out! haha:turbonaug

That's Snoddy right? He has Magnaflow exhaust. He was over today for slowguy's header install.

How do I get in touch with LEP and where are they located? I am new to Vegas from Miami and looking to install a procharger and get a good tune.

Finally got a cam in the car. The price was right and the timing was perfect. Comp 224/230 581/592 114LSA+2. Sounds awesome and drives like stock. No surging yet.

Mods: AEM intake, JBA shorties, JBA mids no cats, magnaflow exhaust.

Here's the SAE graph, but the STD graph was another 10hp higher! :turbonaug
