Steeda tune

Just wondering if there is an update on the steeda tune I got when I purchased the tune, sct4 and cai about 3 to 4 years ago, I'm thinking of going long tubes in a couple of months but for now I am enjoying the tune, it's just a dog down low I can floor it and very little happens until about 2500 to 3000 when it hits and she takes off.

Coyote engines like to rev. No tune is going to change that. I have a Steeda tune and am super happy with it. But perhaps my expectations were more in line.

Long tubes are not going to change much of anything either. Sorry, but there it is.

On on the other hand, I consider this an excellent excuse to go for forced induction. By the time you buy long tubes and install them, it’s not a big leap to supercharging.

Longtubes will actually shift the power band even higher. You'll lose a little down low and pick it back up in the mid range and top end. But ohhhh the noise is worth it!

Shes going in on the 9th for the long tubes and offroad x pipe which should wake up the Borla S Types, I guess gears are next, I have stock 3.31s.

This. Especially if you do plan on going FI at somepoint.

I have 3:73s. They are great, but kinda wish I had the 3:31s from a practicality standpoint. I also daily mine at the moment, so that's another factor.

Maybe split the difference and go with the 3:55 gears instead? They give better acceleration than the 3:31's without as much loss in economy as the 3:73's.

3.73's and a Whipple.
That's the recipe I recommend
400+ rwtq from about 2700 rpm on up.
500+ rwtq from about 3700 rpm to over 6,000 rpm
