Installed Livernois Tune

So I went on ahead and picked up the @LivernoisMotorsports Tune and I must say I am extremely happy I made this purchase! I read a couple of posts how people said that this tune is what the car needed and it how it should have come from the factory. I now understand what they are talking about. The 93 octane tune idles like normal and driving it around you can't even tell a difference until you get on it! I was surprised at how much get up and go she has now!! Feels like a completely different car. I know most people say get an in-person tune but this tune feels spot on and I will get one later with the superchager. I can get 1st and 2nd gear to chirp along with some decent backfire lol! Fast shipping, had to re-install the tuner software but after that, the turn around was super quick with the tune and no errors whatsoever! Will try to get her on a dyno to see what she is putting out! They have my vote!

Was this the "aggressive" tune?

I'm planning on getting this tune but it won't happen until this summer. This will give me time to think about losing my warranty... I know this tune is awesome especially since I'm at a elevation of 3,350 Ft (max octane of 91) which should make my car feels like everyone else's or better at sea level.

I have literally had this car for a little over a month. I told myself when I got the car I was going to wait it out before modding.....yea right lol! No time like the present. At least I can switch back to the stock tune when I take her in to the dealership for anything. I think I may get the dealer to install my long tube headers and exhaust as a show of faith from them and also so it can be covered.

Umm, just so there aren't any surprises -- recalibration is detectable in multiple checksum locations. Re-flashing to the stock tune only serves to increment the checksum error.

Has anyone installed the livernoise tune (or other ECU tunes) WITH the new Vmax ported throttle body?

A couple concerns/questions: Does the tune closely improve throttle/pedal response as the improved TB would? Would there be compatibility issues?

Thank you for any feedback!!

Yes; the OP has

From my understanding, the tune itself improves this drastically.

Thank you for any feedback!!
