    there are a few good tuners out there if you search around, but Justin and Jenna are very involved and are VERY customer oriented. They are great about answering questions, they are always very informative while tuning.... Justin does GREAT work with these trucks man, I would recomend BB to anyone and everyone who is looking into a custom PCM tune. I dont know how Justin finds the time to take such good care of his customers, but he does

    BB is the way to go

    I pretty much ditto that. Me personally, I would not purchase the thermostat, the stocker is just fine.

    No probs bro... I honestly cant give an opinion on Blackbear since I know the F-body and Y-body markets as far as tuning goes, but from what I am let to read on here there is a ton of happy customers and that is what counts!.

    Its funny you say that cause Vinci Hi Performance had a whole write up of why you should keep the higher thermostat temp over say a 160*.

    Bump, lots of threads on TBSs, figured this would be a good time to get it back to the top!

    Mine's rocking a volant ram box, granitelli maf, and a helix tbs, followed up with the hypertech touchscreen. also, my catalyic converters just 'fell out' one day. straight pipe welded back in, dual in/out flowmaster, and no tailpipes. auburn gear 3:73 rear too. thing sounds like a beast now. The first 150 feet are good the 6700 lb curse takes over.I tried adding the same throttle body your'e talking about, had to send it back. I followed the procedure for acclimating the computer to it, but the truck kept tripping right back into safe mode ten minutes into the road test every time. anybody know why? I was looking into an lsx manifold kit for better top end. but I'm afraid I'll just run into the same problem and don't wanna go through that p.i.t.a

    the man's got a point. the power tower sounds good, but it doesn't do squat. save yourself the space and get an electric fan, and if they make them for our model trucks, an electric water pump. lots more money to spend, but if you can buck the "$20 at a time" performance plan ( no offense I figured this out the hard way myself.), you start to notice some real gains.

    Your aftermarket MAF is leaning out your mixture and your hypertech can't account for it. You might want to try putting your stock MAF back in and seeing if that fixes your problems. Check out my thread on aftermarket MAFs as well...

    Dont the granailli mafs have a hole in the middle that air can flow through un-accounted for?

    Either way still not worth the money, if I were to get one it would be the lingenfelter (sp?) 100mm
