    Question Any tips on getting started on a '17 Camaro?

    Hi,

    I've been out of the tuning game for a while, after picking up a new '17 Fifty I didn't want to mess with it for the first three years of warranty coverage ... anyway, this time is coming to an end next year, so I was looking into what improvements could be made by fine-tuning the setup ... I had my 2000 Firebird tuned both before motor mods and after with EFILive, and it worked great ... cut almost half a second on the quarter mile on the stock setup just by tuning with a wideband O2 ...

    So where to start with the '17? And, most of all, are the problems that (as I understood it) originally prevented tuning with EFIlive solved? I had read that while the '16 was tunable initially, countermeasures by GM prevented the ECU changes on the 17 and later ...

    Thanks!

    You can try reading the tune from the ECM and take a look at it...
