    a Mail order Edit or Tune , is when you remove your PCM ( Power Control Module ) and send it off to a Tuner , they will Load on a Basic Tune thats Safe for your car but isnt pushing the Boundries of LS1 PCM tuning, and Send it on back , next day. While it is a Good Performance Gain , it is Not as good as a Custom Tune.

    I have been informed by some people that they were very pleased with their mail order PCM.
    So be alright if you weren't after maximum power.

    A mail order edit is just the base tune we load in when a car comes in for a full custom tune as the starting point. it is a 95% tune that takes into account the variances between cars , a custom tune just massages this further.


    Look at our website for the sort of gains you can get via Project Monaro

    We do a exhchange computer sent overnight in most cases.

    Mail order or custom Edit

    If in Melbourne i would give Chip Control a call on 03 97403363 and speek
    to Scott as LS1 Gen3's consume about 80% of his weekly dyno time.
    Somone that spends this amount of time tuning a particular type of system
    can become very good at it with constantly improving results.
    Just food for thought.


    Cheers.

    Yep, just off Horne Street in Sunbury. Have been down there a few times. Nice clean shop and great blokes.
    About 15mins from my place, feel like a road trip minux?

    Hey Delco,

    Do you offer a package which has the mail order tune & VZ MAF & MAF pipe? If so, emmachiset?

    Or, would you not bother with a MAF at all? I have a VYII which gets driven on the road, not the track, and has no other mods at all (although I am looking for an ex-HSV catback exhaust...). So it would need to be able to cope with the odd dose of 92 to 95 octane fuel. I try to always fill up on premium, but sometimes it isn't available.

    Thanks in advance,

    Why pay for a VZ maf and tune when you can just go straight to a mafless tune if you are after max hp.

    Mafless tunes are harder and some cant get a handle on them so they try and fob you of with paying extra and using a 85mm VZ maf , yes it is less resrictive than a 75mm VT/VY one but a 100mm pipe is no restriction.

    So do you do a Mafless mail order tune? And how much do you charge for a GTS-style intake pipe?
