Question Experience tuning your own C5?

Anyone try tuning your own C5? Are there any classes or books on how to do so? I'm not looking to do it on others cars, just enough knowledge to have fun with my own car.

Thanks for the help.

I tuned my own car but had an experienced tuner sitting next to me the entire time. I can tell you....don't do it without experience!! The cost is too great.
