Default Waitforme performance

So I took the Bravada down to Indiana today to get dyno tuned at Waitforme performance shop, Jesse the owner went above and beyond tuning my truck to get every last ounce of performance out of it and did everything I wanted done in my tune. Very nice guy, knows what he is doing and puts customer satisfaction first...will go to him for all my tuning needs.

PS: Seen a lot of bad ass cars, CTSV putting down 960rwhp Some other guy had one putting something like 650 to the rear wheels said it was about 770 at the crank...the thing that impressed me was he spent as much time and paid attention to detail to our $5000 truck as he did with these 100k machines.

2000 Olds Bravada
242rwhp and 320ft pound of TQ...my goal was that magic 1hp per cubic inch 262cid, he said I am probably in the neighborhood of 280 at the crank so I achieved my goal and she definitely has a lot more pep in her step.

Will get some pics uploaded tomorrow in the pub, some bad ass rides in there such as the CTSV's and he had a Mosler MT900s, Viper, some Corvettes.

PS: Again, one more thing when we got home the trip computer shows a mpg average of 19.4mpg reset before leaving Indiana and that is cty/hyw combined...this truck was rated at 16cty/19hyw brand new so I am getting way more horsepower than stock yet sill getting above rated gas mileage...before any work I use to get an average of 17mpg, Fanfuckingtastic

Don't care what they thought, it was my project and I am not a fucking millionaire that can afford one of those cars.

I have to run 93 octane because of the compression ratio but with the gas mileage I am getting now I am doing better than stock running 87. We drove all around the city today and the trip computer is at 19.1mpg average and that was with me playing with the gas pedal a few times.

It is barking them in second and I have a feeling this tranny is not going to last with these settings and horse power increase, he also stated that this tranny might not last, I guess we will see but I think I might be in for rebuilding this with some better parts in the future...anyone recommend a good 4l60e rebuild kit, I am hearing good reviews about Pro Built transmission kits from the guys on 3rdgen.org anything better out there? What about a Monster rebuild kit?
