I also decided to stop by Livernois Motorsports for a tune, new plugs, and a 3bar sensor. I was amazed at the difference I saw immediately with the tune alone. The car seems so much more responsive and the power delivery is smoother at all RPMs. I continued my journey to Mackinaw City through nasty weather, slush, ice, snow, and wet roads for 3hrs.
