From my experience on a local car, that is the case. A local guy put a powerlog on his GTP that already had ported manifolds, and the car slowed down noticably and actually had an increase of KR. Before the powerlog it would smoke the tires from a 30mph roll, and from a 20mph roll it would barely chirp them with the log. It was BAD. He called me and told me how pissed off he was and how much slower his car was.

The next day I made a trip over there and we skewed his injectors and it woke WAY up. Gained its original power back and then some. Its amazing what skewing a few injectors can do for performance.

I understand his situation seems to be a pretty extreme one, but from what I saw from his car I'd recommend everyone to skew their injectors with the powerlog.

GM Tuners will be able to help you with the pcm tuning.

Yea i have talked to him about it before. I just got to get it on a scanner and get all my data ready. Would it be wise to scan the car in the cold or wait til spring when it warms up outside. Because if i tune it to the cold weather then this summer it may be all off correct?

It says on thier front page Northeastern Indiana.

Regardless of when you actually tune your car you need a scanner. I'd just wait till the spring or whenever your going to be seeing track time. Unless you race on 'private tracks' alot...

Are they running pcm'* with advanced timing? That'* why. You're not. Stock motors and stock PCM'* should have NONE. Especially this time of year.
This is absolutely incorrect! Most L36 owners see enough KR stock to make an L67 owner have a heart attack. It isn't uncomon for a L36 to have 5-6* of KR, the good running L36'* see 1-3* of KR (our project car for example). I've only ever seen Modded ones run with NO KR.

Granted this time of year will help, but not ZERO!
