Ok, so I finally got my EPROM programmer yesterday :dance:, along with a few sockets and IC's. I programmed my first tune today which worked first go surprisingly, I believe it was an old greenfoam modified hsv 3800 tune I found lurking in the forum. Definitely felt a bit quicker especially off the line :)

Greenfoam & Delcowizzid - I was wondering if you could be so kind as to send me a tune to try out? no doubt they would be better than the tune I'm using at the moment.

Now for front bar CAI, Greenfoam, do you have any pictures of the hole in the guard and pipe you ran to the front bar? Also what fuel do you recommend using? would I benefit from premium at all?

To everyone else - I cant emphasise enough how cheap and easy this is to do yourself!! There is a wealth of information about tuning your own car, it cost me $40 bucks for programmer and $15 for a few EPROM's and sockets, Definitely money well spent.

Cheers

You are best of starting from scratch (the original tune) or the HSV 3800 and changing it from there, you will learn more much faster, I would also suggest using a gtech to see if you have gained or not, it's more or less impossible to tell if you have gained or gone backwards on the V6 without one

I have been meaning to buy a Gtech, wheres the best place to buy them? I don't want to spend heaps on it. I have also got the $12 definition, is it better to use that?

Yeah that will do, bit pricey :) if you are rich you may as well get the new good gtech, that gives you a complete power curve and such, it's a very good thing
