    There are so many dodgy dyno numbers these days.
    What's wrong with actives? Thought they were ok. Haven't been to the strip since tune yet, will be interesting..

    Can be a bit hit and miss, I think they pump out too many cars these days to take the time and get everything spot on and don't seem to want to help after you've spent your money unless you have or are spending a lot. There's a few threads on here from disgruntled customers

    I think people on the forum are a little smarter and educated on the industry and what better options are available for their dollars spent versus this package.

    Looking for colder IAT's? we have achieved 11c IAT2 on a 41c day and -8c during winter.
    We have proven cabin AC vent temps are better than GM spec, both IAT2's and vent temps are all on video with nothing to hide.

    They do a great job marketing it. And when combined with a new car purchase you haggle over the price. I haven't done the 507 to 557 upgrade, thinking will get a lid spacer instead.

    I would aggree that the package is expensive, but one must wonder why Walkinshaw never opted to increase blower rpm beyond the 18% overdrive when including the upgraded camshaft. Was it to reduce inlet psi to 9psi and limit intake temps.
