I haven't yet modded my car, am about to install some bullets, and then later I might put on some headers. I don't think i need a tune after I put just cat backs on, but I will probably need a tune after the headers go on. Money is an issue right now, so if I could get away without a tune right now it would be nice.

Opinions would be greatly appreciated.

wait untill you do the headers and if you have any future mods in mind just wait untill you get that done the tune wont make a HUGE differance for the money but if all your doing is the headers you dont absolutly need it but it will help your performance

btw what headers are you doing

Leaning towards LG, but only because thats all anyone talks about. I haven't gotten around to comparing prices or anything like that.

Not for a long while, no. Still getting used to the joy of driving the vette, I'm getting the Bullets simply because it doesn't sound mean enough. My friend's mustang gt is louder than my vette and I don't like that lol. The headers seems like the next logical step, and I'm sure that I will do more when I have some money to through around and a thirst for more power. Thanks for you help.

I agree with the LG advice... I have a C6, so I can't be too much help, but in about a month I'm going to place an order with TBYRNE for a LG header and midpipe setup

Did any of your install the LGs yourself, or did you have a shop do it?

I just had the LGs installed at my dealer. unless you have a lift handy don't even think about it! i put in the LG street with the high flow cats and a pair of O2 sensors since you only use one pair with the new installation. make sure you buy them when you get the headers. the guys at LG forgot to tell me, so i had to wait another day before using the beast. SOUNDS AWESOME WITH THE BORLA CAT BACKS.:thumbsup:

Just courious why you couldn't use the old 02 sensors. Everything Ive read on ls1howto.com said you use the rear pair of sensors in the front. Ive also read that the street setup uses all 4 sensors. I'm geting ready to purchase a set myself, and I'm leaning toward the street setup.:cheers:

wait for the tune until you've done a few mods. Remember a tune is essentially a finishing touch mod to get the most out of what you already have. Think of it as the icing on the cake.

Also, i'd reccomend a street tune unless you're going to take your car to the strip a whole lot.
