VE Calais V V8
Hi guys here goes.

2009 ve Calais v v8. Cammed and tuned. Vcm otr headers and 3 inch exhaust.

just got it back from service and it’s running like a pig at low revs. it’s stalled a few times. It’s dropping real low revs when coming into corners, braking in traffic etc. then jumps when the revs kick back in again. Mechanic said He spoke to VCM already and sent them a copy of the final tune , they say its fine so they are thinking there is either an intermittent fuel issue or an intermittent air leak that migfht be playing havoc with the idle airflow settings.
They said they drove it heaps and had no issues.

I can’t get it back to the mechanics as they are 200 kms away and no one in my town has the knowledge or skills to help.

Has anyone had this issue or have any ideas what it might be?

Cheers

Hey man, I'm having similar issues.
I've got an auto ss, same mods as yours. When I start the car in park it idles fine but if I drop back to reverse I lose revs and engine stalls.
Do you have any idea yet what was causing your problems?

Hey mate. I’ve since sold it now but had multiple issues with the tuner never able to get it right. Living remotely unfortunately didn’t have many options.
