Hey all,

I have had my LS1 for quite a while now, but I think it would benefit greatly with a tune and just a general once over from a pro.

I bought it with a wade cam, pace makers, (random/crappy catback exhaust), stock cats, bigger intake pipe, double valve springs along with a full motor rebuild.

The thing is pretty thirsty, from a full tank lucky if i get 300km's. Not sure if this is normal, even with the mods. I don't have a heavy foot.

The car shakes a bit on idle (could be the cam?) but it doesn't have a lumpy exhaust note.

So i think a tune would get me some better economy, and a better running motor.

Can anybody vouch for a good tuner/workshop?

Willing to travel - from northern suburbs.

Note - I have done a search, but found nothing very recent. Would like some recent opinion's on some shops and prices if people would like to share.

C&A Auto Fashion in Blackburn come with the highest recommendation from me. I had my SS tuned there. $880 for a full tune

Other than that a few other options are:

AutoTechnique in Knoxfield

LSX Garage in Hallam

APS Performance in Frankston

Cheers, Did you get a OTR intake as well? I assume that wasn't included with the tune?

It's a C&A Special OTR design, similar to the Ramjet.

Radiator tilted backwards about 15 degrees and picks up airflow directly through grilles.
