Smile Whats tunes?

I am about to send my chip to Tony Wildman for get it burned for my 99' and need some help with the tunes to install. My setup is in my sig, I figured I would ask you guys instead of a trial and error mailing the chip back and forth. Thanks!

Re: Whats tunes?

i don't see anything about gauges in your sig, without at least a pyrometer i would be EXTREMELY conservative with what tunes you get if any.. i know certain PCM codes will get the EGTs way up there even stock.

after that i dont know anything about twildman im a DP:nutswinger:

A very expensive mistake, and a bigger leason. Bet you never do that again.

Talking Re: Whats tunes?

This remind me of something I did a few years ago. I had a 2000 chevy 1500 5.3 I took a pair of heads reworked the ports and some other stuff, put them on, forgot that the headbolt bores are dead and hydroliced the block craking it in a few spots, never leaked, but I though it was done stick it with a fork. Was,nt long after that I totaled it down from the shop, proble a good thing I allwas say.
