I had a stall but it was just a 2800, not a whole lot different than stock. Someday I 'll tear into this engine and/or spray it and then get a proper tune
A tune should be the first thing you do. No need for a list of mods to tune. Tuned is tuned, regardless of mods. Just have them go ahead and turn off the o2s in case you decide to use an ORY or whatever, but besides that, the tune will be the same with or without bolt-ons. (Cam and heads tuning is different of course)

I ran 12.5 at 110 with a tune, lid, and cat-back (stock 3.23s).

Yea, vortechs dont help out of the hole with a stock stall.

Back in the day my car had the stock stall with a procharger and still did 2.0 60s...wouldnt really go anywhere out of the hole

I wish I had a true before and after of my 3800 converter on my vortech setup.
