Some say that it takes about 200 miles for the tune to be learned by the pcm; others say it kicks in right away. I tune mine myself with HPTuners and I have noticed a nice increase even though I haven't got it completely dialed in yet. IDK much about how 4.3's respond to tuning but I'd think there's about 20 hp to be had on the 5.3. Are there any mods done to either engine?

stroker ace thank you for your help,lethal yoyo where abouts is nellson performance?
I'll be in North Richland Hills this coming weekend to teach an EFILive course, and if you're wanting, I can set you up with a tune. The gains for a 5.3 will be much more impressive than what you'll get out of the 4.3.

I will be getting in Friday night and staying at a Comfort Inn right at 820/Rufe Snow Dr. I will be at Xtreme Horsepower on Saturday 5102 Commercial Drive, North Richland Hills, tx 76180.

Looks like I've got about an hour to spare in the evening on Saturday before I need to get to the airport, starting at 5:30pm, or I could meet up with you Friday evening after 9pm when I get in.

Given the tight timeframe, I'd give you a 15% discount on a tune, making the price be $170.

Thanks,
Justin

Absolutely. I'm preparing for a cross country move in less than a month, so I definitely know what you're feeling.

Speaking of which, I'll more than likely be staying the night in Saginaw on the evening of the 31st and could tune you up then if you're interested.

Thanks,
Justin

Go with justinSS. I have never bought anything from him but he helped me with my tranny tuning on my truck.

Good guy.
