What I have:

2009 Chevy Colorado 5.3

Volant intake
Doug Thorley Headers
Custom Exhaust

I was wondering if a dyno tune is worth it at this point? I plan on buying a supercharger for my truck in the next six to eight months. It really bothers me that the check engine light is on also, and it seems to hesitate a lot in the lower rpms, I'm sure a tune would fix this. How much horsepower gains have you guys gotten from a dyno tune?

I'm in the process of getting my truck tuned by James (Supermod). We still have a couple of bugs to work out, but it has really woken the truck up. For the price, you cant beat it.

He got rid of my passlock and rear Co2 sensors in the process. Just got off the phone with him not too long ago actually, and he said I'd be in the 290-300 range to the wheels. Although I'd like to get the truck dyno'd also when I finish my cam and stall.

Yeah I'm thinking I will get it tuned, I just don't want to be driving it around with it not running to its true potential. 300 to the wheels is what I'm hoping to get.

With a CEL it sounds like it needs a tune-up to get back to square one.......then do a tune.

don't forget the Supermod PTB before the tune, you will be really impressed about the new reactivity of your truck.

Awesome, thanks for the advice I have an appointment with excelsior motorsports. Best price I could find for someone who specializes in tuning Chevy's.
