Default Tuning for '08 LS3

Do any of the hand-held tuners work with/support the new LS3 engine? If so, which would you recommend? Thanks.

Not currently. There are issues with the the LS3 ecu that are different from all other C6 Corvette calibrations. Some of the tuning parameters that need changing may be beyond the capabilities of all the current hand held tuners. There are several software tuning packages that support the 08 LS3 ecu and several tuners that offer calibrations for that application.

Tuning the 08 LS3 is very different than the 05-07 LS2.

That is exactly what I thought. I guess I will have to wait for more development to take place, or find a good "tuner" in AZ.

Yeah, not real sure about handhelds, we've offered 08' LS3/LS7 tuning for nearly 6 months now though.

Default I can help you as well

I am here as a supporting vendor and tech service if you need.

We sell Hp tuners and diablo sport and support both on the tech side of things.

Finished many 2008 ls3 already with fantastic results for minimum money.
