Yes, I can definitely get you hooked up.. I've done thousands of these cars and do them daily...

Please send me an email at -- diablo DOT help AT gmail DOT com -- with the year, model, engine of your GM vehicle, any mods done to it, what octane gas you use, etc.. and I can send you a loooong email with info about the programmers, the custom tuning, the process, etc.

Thanks! -Lew

He won't tune if you have boost. Deal breaker for my plans.

No but others will , talk to Doug at ECS

Lew does a great job with Headers , Intake , ported Throttle body along with a trans tune that is second to none

Yeah, if you have an aftermarket supercharger/turbo setup, I won't touch it via email custom tuning... you'd need to take a setup like that to a shop to get tuned on a dyno...

correct/yes... headers, high-flow or no cats, cat-back exhaust, cold air intake, ported throttle body/intake, no problem...

I don't touch aftermarket forced induction via email tuning... best option for an aftermarket turbo/supercharger setup like that is to be done on a dyno...

Default C7/z06

How about the LT4/Z06 with some bolt-ons like a aftermarket lower pulley?

So what is difference between your and Diablo? Or is it the same?

Looks like I would have to buy a Trinity T-2 to get upgraded tune for such as cold air, ported throttle body?? I really have no use for then extra stuff it does like 0-60 etc as my car has all that built in.

If you dont want all the bells and whistles you don't have to buy the Trinity you can use the Diablo I3 platuim 8245 , this is the one I have
Feel free to PM me and I can give you the details on what you can do with it

How about the I2030 can that be used? On a 2017 stingray Z51. I used to use it on my Denali with a tune from him but sold truck but still have the tuner.

John , I would ask Lew to be sure but I think the 2030 can tune the engine but you need the 8245 to do engine and trans if you have an A8

Default GM i2030 DS tuner

I 'believe' along with the engine the 2030 also tunes the 'trans' too i.e. gear shift points, firm-nest (trans pressure). I have the i2030 tuner but I have 'only' used it to turn the V8/V4 mode off and I don't need other 'stuff' hooked up in the car all the time to do that; car stays neater that way. PS: I have read on the net that the V8/V4 mode causes higher oil consumption in the Corvette along with what is complained about here. "CLEAN is MEAN"

PS: I own a 2015 Z06

The 8 speed tranny can not be tuned at all on 2017+ vehicles... only the engine can be tuned.

I've been running Lew tunes on my C7 since 2014 with over 30k miles on them with various bolt-on setups. Great guy!

Yeah I should have been more specific. I really wish there was more handheld tuning support for this platform. I don't like dealing with a laptop in a car.

Did you back up the original oem tune before you sold it? If not that wud mean the backup is still on the tuner so the tuner is still locked to the Denali!
