8lb lower on stock lightning block? I don't think I would blame the tuner on that one. :scared003

I bet it made good power......

Even then I have to ask how hard was he pushing the block how was it punished before he got it and how safe was the tune. Dyno tune is great but I have to wonder if it was street safe so to speak. IE dyno tune doesn't always transfer to a great street tune.

Seems to always come back to how experienced the tuner was with L's and supercharged engine tuning.
