Do power can be made on a stock Z06 with only tuning?
Do anybody have experience with haltech or the like that tune stock engine for maximum efficiency for about 1000$; worth it?

I got a tune on my stock 02 Z06 last year and picked up 17RWHP.


You get to pick up power, but also get to adjust and tune out the stuff you don't want. I'm not sure what things come with the C6 Z, but I had a few things that I didn't like on mine. The Shift points had to be adjusted to better fit the power band. The 1-4 skip shift removed. The thing that cuts power when you hit it real hard.

Personally I think a tune is well worth the money. A thousand is pretty high up there though. I got my tune for $500 initially and $250 every one after that.

Get a Diablo Predator tuner and do it yourself. Real easy, takes about 5 minutes. They have a base tune thats conservative that yields 15-20 horsepower. When you figure out what you are doing you can modify it and get a little more by leaning out the a/f . It cost around 300.00 and you can go back to your stock tune anytime you want too. Not as good as a pro tune, but a good bang for the buck and they have great customer service!

Put it on a dyno and spend about 600 bucks. Well worth it.
