I just recently put in the headers so I haven't had time to see what it can do. I've not been to the track, and your guess is as good as mine as to what numbers I'm putting down. From what I've been told with my setup I should be running high 13'* with a good launch and a good tune (yet to get tuned once again). From what I've been told I'm probably putting down 230-240whp, along with maybe 250-260 tq? Like I said it'* really a guess till I run it/dyno it.

Had a guy here a few weeks ago with a CompG, same color. I did the tune on it. Was a pain because I couldn't do high speed communication. So had to do slow speed and it took 15 minuets to download the bin. Need to finish up the bench tuner so all I need to do is hook up, no dealing with the cars wiring.

First time my GTP was tuned it took a LONG time for the first inital write. I'm not very knowledgeable on tuning but the guy I know said he was using diff O/* on the PCM (does that make any sense?) After the first inital write he did "partial writes" which went a lot quicker, but the first one took around 15 mins I'd say like you said.

From what I was able to find out, the problem is in the cars wiring. To much interference for high speed link. If yours was the same then I'm guessing all are like this. Another reason why I want to bypass the cars wiring. Just need to finish the harness.
