How soon will you need the tune? It takes about 5 minutes to put together a start tune with your additions. If he is that busy, he must be some tuner.

Figure out who you want to do the tuning and get him to send you a startup tune. I wouldn't try and start it with all the changes, everything will be way off.

You made a good choice going with Jim's kit. One thing I would advise is to contact Garrett and see what is the smallest oil restrictor they recommend for that turbo. The 3v and ball bearing turbos...

Op, 3.73's are the best all around gear for a blower like yours. If you are interested, I have a set of FRPP 3.73's with about 700 miles and 3 passes on them. I wanted to try them and see if it...

My street pump gas tune is 600rwhp. I could run maybe 650 safely but why? When you get up into the 550-600 rwhp range it really isn't as fun to drive as something around 500.

I have twin turbos,...

If those are your long range plans then just keep it as you are, until you get your other car. Why spend money on the 4.0 when you are just going to replace it. When you get your other DD car then...

With the 6R80 automatic, if you want the best 1/4 mile times then install either 3.15 or 3.31 gears. Anything more is just a waste of time due to the gearing in the 6R, hell it's got a 4.17 first...
