The can tune uses stock box and green filter.. which should be close enough to a CAI that needs no tune.. a big gulp or 5 intake is a different story and will most likely make you run out of fuel pressure.

This is my understanding as well. The GM CAI does not need a re-calibration to work. I had mine updated and this is what I sent Edelbrock. It should be fine.

Are you saying that you had got the GM tune (included with purchase price) done on your car for the GM CAI, and have read the car afterward for the file to send to Edelbrock? If so, then that file you sent them will have the different MAF calibration (from the stock SS calibration) for that CAI in it, that's what I was talking about.

There not going to do anything special.. its going to be tuned to run that eldow, the green filter in kit, and stock air box... if you add a cold air kit that requires no tune " a normal roto fab, a Cold air inductions, or the GM CAI.. it will be fine.

If you add any of the following 103mm tb, headers or a 5inch CAI " Roto fab big gulp, weaponx 5 inch, or other intakes that require a tune then go with a NON tune 2650 kit because you will need a tune now..


If you plan on doing this stuff in the future save the money on not getting a can tune and just do it now.. no need to was the extra money..

I suggest the following to maximize the kit..

low side dsx 900.00
lt4 injectors 500.00
lt4 high side $860.00
103mm tb $650 or the LT5 ported
headers $700 TSP
kong porting $1300.00

Well its complete and running. No codes and I can tell that the can tune is not perfect. It breaks up a little on the top end. I will be getting a custom tune in a few months. It pulls hard!!

Ck the fuel pressure low and high for the break up..also try with traction on and off .

Looks awesome!
