Default Tune options for '08 C6 LS3

I want to push the easy button to 11's on a near stock '08 C6 LS3 "mn6" Is a tune required for a 100 horse dry nitrous ? supporting mods are K&N fipk cold air kit & Corsa Sport axlebacks.

If a tune is needed should I go Predator or custom dyno-tune ?

A tune is going to be needed for sure, at the minimum you'll want to pull a little timing for that 100 shot, and you can do that with the Predator or Trinity easily.

Thanks
Mike

personally I would get a dyno tune with any power adder just to make sure the air/fuel is in check and you are not getting any knock. That way you would be able to get the full potenial out of the nitrous and to make sure that the nozzle placement is set-up properly, the dry nozzles placement can be tricky sometimes.

Yikes...I did not see the dry part mentioned....oops.

Yeah, even with the pred or Trinity, I'd dial it in on the dyno, or better yet, start with a wet kit!!
