How do you guys tune your cars on the street? Just wondering:cheers:
So you have had your car at wot on the street up to 5500 rpm in 3 gear, So what were your O2s at that tune?No he has a PL and a tonne of knowledge. I am a smooth talker so if the cops get us I can wiggle my way out. Never have him take the chance driving... he watches the PL.
Just starting to play with it Dan....it's a new set up so I'm relatively new to the PL & Wide Band. I know it's gonna take some time. Will take it to the track eventually "one day".So how long does the 3 gears pull go for? From what speed to what speed or from a dead stop to 3 gear?
I not exactly sure what you mean by that statement. I believe you are inferring that my car is not in "tune" because I drive it to a Tim Horton's and not to a drag strip. That being said my car has an all original long block with the same head gaskets put there by the GM employees in 1987That's what i thought no ones car is tune.:cheers:
Yea it's a stock motor ,i wouldn't what to hurt it either,Light to light i guess so That being said enjoy your car good luck.:cheers:I not exactly sure what you mean by that statement.

I enjoy my car.
It has a great "tune" thanks to Bill.
No ones car is in tune because they never hit 5500 in 3rd gear??That's what i thought no ones car is tune.:cheers:
Dan's his own man and I have nothing to do with his posts or replies. The only agenda I have is hanging out/racing with the guys from the Belleville/Kingston area. As far as wrenching/tuning...the only persons car I touch...is my own. If you have an issue with Dan...then I politely ask that you take it up with him...and leave me out of it.No ones car is in tune because they never hit 5500 in 3rd gear??
There are far more guys looking for driveability then they are maximum performance.
If they're car will never see 5500 in 3rd gear there is no sense whatsoever in tuning to that level.
For the Few cars that do go to the track we baseline at the dyno and tweak after every pass at the track.
You guys need to realize not everyone wants to race their car....
Clearly you and your pal have an agenda here, I know you 2 love to hate me.
The way I always remember to prime is to hit the button as I pass a specific house on my street, it's just something to jog my memory every time I head out. As soon as I hear that subtle bogging sound I know I'm GTG.Well I know one thing for sure. I need a tune very bad. My buddy took me for a ride in his 2011 Subaru STI with a wicked tune and 3inch downpipe for mods and I thought to my self the whole time **** **** **** the Turbo T needs a tune. Because a 10 second car will run 14's if the tunes bad. But in terms of tuning for the street or track its all based on the owners taste. Some guys are serious about track times and some guys like me want a SAFE tune that is fast yet very safe with all numbers well inside the normal areas. I'm waiting for my combo to be put together before I start tuning EX: new F body Rad, 3 inch downpipe , Fuel pressure gauge , Wide band O2, And a 5.7 Alky chip. In terms of alky is there any down side besides the fact you could **** yourself and forget to test prime the system before you head into high boost.
Anyways I hope to learn how to tune my owns cars so I can help people down the road with tuning. I'd love to see more guys my age buy Buicks at all the car meets I go to I love the look on peoples face when they see a factory turbocharged v6 from the 80's sitting under the hood of grandmas Buick.:sw::6::headbang:
