Yep, that's me.  Skidoo nick700.  So you decided to go with the blackbear tune I see... I want to do this tune so bad lol.  You should do a speedo video before  and after from like 0 to whatever possible.

Are you talking about the process of getting the tune from Black Bear? If so, read on.

Just google Black Bear Performance, you will find them.  Their website lists the multiple ways to get a tune.  Click on Services and they describe how each service works.  Typically,  I believe most people do the Data Logging Tune.  If possible, people opt for the in-person tune, but the chances of that depend on where you live, and where Justin from black bear performance is "staying" at.

Hey GB, I would suggest you check out nelson performance. He's in san antonio and can get you a dyno tune at his shop, his screen name on here is farmtruc, think about it and you wont be disappointed!

Stogen, I know I said this earlier, but could you really consider doing some sort of speedo video before & after the tune? Please? I'm asking you as one club member to another, one dootalker to another, haha.  I've never come across a video that's worthy.  Somehow people think doing one vid 0-60 and another 20-60 is good for comparison...

And one other thing, how did you tell Blackbear to tune your truck? Like which octane, and is it more economy or performance or all-around?  They sending you a new PCM?

Absolutely Chevynick I will do a comparison, and I bought the Blackbear tuner it says drive around for a half hour at various driving rates (with the tuner plugged in to the obd2) it records everything then I plug it into my computer and email the file to them, then they tweak it and send it back to you then I load it back on to the tuner and into my truck :drive:
