2015 SRT 392
No Thanks is necessary Jay. you're the one doing me a favor by sharing your build, so Thank You.Wow FreddyG you read my thread. As a long time member of this forum I’ve learned lots of information from folks like you, Challytatum & Mcloud. The fact that you looked at my build honors me. I have to agree with you on nearly everything. Boost is simply a number. The most important aspect of boost is applying it to make power. While 1K Streetable HP is the goal. I’m happy with anything in the 8-1K range. Also I’ve heard of pocket porting but I didn’t want to take a chance on that or a valve job on this heads. Like you said I’m just trying to clean mine up and gain where I can from port matching. Next up for me will be the 6.1 intake. Then assembly. I’m hoping to get up some pics once I start reassembly. Thanks again for reading my entire thread and I look forward to any words of wisdom.

I did read your whole thread because it's interesting and there is a lot to learn from watching someone's build and I like to learn. You should keep up the Good work because you're doing Great!
By the way, my Wife would say that me and words of Wisdom shouldn't be in the same sentence!
Things with tuners might be different now with the pandemic because more people are home and working on their cars for something to keep them busy. If you find a good mentor, you could probably pick up the basics of tuning in a few months depending on how much time you invest. I'd think with people being pandemic quarantined that it would be a good time to start reading/studying.Speaking of timely service, how long does it take your tuner to make a revision? I'm on a week and called everyday... Do I need a new tuner? I wish it didn't take years to learn to tune, this has been the pain point in all of my projects since tuning has been required...
With learning tuning, the internet is a good place to start reading and ask questions until people tell you to stop asking questions. I learned tuning basics from a couple of the best LSx tuners in the country (one's even in Australia) and was Blessed enough that they never told me to stop asking questions to them, but I tried not to abuse that privilege and figure things out on my own before resorting to asking for help.
My brain works like if I understand how something works, then I'm good. Each sensor does something different and when you change a setting/number/whatever, what's it going to do or what is going to happen and how does it affect other sensors or parts of the tune. Like I said, that's just my brain and what worked for me. Everyone is different though and it might be a bit overwhelming at first, but if you hang in there, you'll get it and once you do, you have no idea the amount of pride that comes from tuning your own car!
I know that's how I felt especially when I ended up with a 600+ rwhp Corvette that ran a mid 10 second quarter mile and still got 30 mpg on the highway that I tuned myself! Please don't think that I'm bragging, I'm just proud of myself and sharing what is capable with some learning time. You don't need a tuner then because you are the tuner.
