I can only tell you that I am remote tuning now with Turbo Tim at ZZP. I have been hot rodding cars for years but with a Holley Carburetor and nitrous oxide. This is my first efi car and my first turbo car so I wouldn't know if Tim was the worst tuner in the world. I do know that my wife and I so far are very happy with how her car is running.

I've only dealt with Trifecta because they are local to me. I started with their "canned" email tune, than all the way up to 2 separate in-house dyno tunes. I may be the outlier here, but I can't express enough how satisfied I am with their work every step of the way. My car runs absolutely incredible. Can't wait to put it through Auto-X the spring.

I'm in the same boat. Out in NC, I have called around and seems like no one wants to even try out the LTG or knows much about it. I guess remote tuning it is and crossing fingers of not blowing up.

I just want the volumetric efficiency data corrected for fuel curve and erase rear o2. That's all.

Go on Trifecta's website and message them. Tell them what you want. Their software program comes with the obd2 cable and gives you full control of diagnostics scans and the ability to completely turn off any codes that pop up from o2 crap.

I messaged them and I think it was Michael who replied that I would need their elite package.

Yes, that is correct. You can re-tune as may times as you want with that package as well. As you add mods, you can tune the car with it. As mentioned, the software they give you has the ability to scan and see fault codes that you can permanently turn off or back on yourself. I've turned off a million o2 codes because of my downpipe and the stupid code the aftermarket recirculation valve throws with it.

Thats pretty neat. I get about every 3 days of driving the p013f and its o2 related. Just annoying to clear the fault. Its due to the zzp catted dp and 90 degree bung they gave me

Yeah Mattís working on mine, he has brought out a whole new monster in my car. Iím On the 4th revision. Possibly battling a vacuum leak near the intake manifold. But Iím still not sure where. I ran a boost leak test and it sounds like air leaking but when I presented the car with more pressure it didnít have the leak so Iím not sure if itís normal for the car to release pressure until a certain psi.

I just ordered the Trifecta elite tune for mine. Anyone have this particular one and is it clutch/bottom end friendly? I've heard positive results after basic bolt ons.

Complete Street Performance outside Philly and Ted Jannetty in CT both have good reputations with 6th gen Camaros. Not sure about their specific turbo experience, however.
