i need some good advice on my 01 zx3
i am getting the option racing header and cfm throttle body and eventually cams. right now i have the k&n typhon intake, msd coil and wires, 2 1/4" flexpipe back exhaust with a flowmaster 40 muffler. will someone tell me the best way to tune my car to get rid of the 110mph governor and get the best hp and mpg gain....

There's no reason to get rid of the speed limiter, I still have mine in place.

But get a tune from Tom if you want one now. That way when you add more parts the updated tune is free.

There are only 2 options to 'tune' your car:
* Xcal + Advantage III (Pro-Racer) - $$650-$1,100 (depending on who you buy from and options)
* Xcal and remote tune - $400-$more (depending on who you go with and options)

i do alot of racing tho and would like to get rid of limiter so i dont get beat on interstate. is the $390 programer from sct worth it?

Talk to 1turbofocus and he'll give you his prices. IIRC it's about $400 for the device and custom tune.

And if you're 'racing' cars on the interstate and winning,,, you're racing the wrong cars, slowpoke.

Racing on the interstate is dumb. It's not safe for you or anybody else on the road. Take it to the track buddy

i live in montana come on now. no one said we had fully tuned cars here geeze. this is just my gas saver project car. im building a 5.0 85 tbird also

None of us care. Racing does not belong on the street no matter what.

If you want to stay around you'd best learn that real fast.

we dont have tracks here. well just one. the montana way is on the streets. but i just wanna get rid of the governor. i know i dont need to but i want too. when your neck in neck with a durmax its time to get rid of it
