    Livernois Tunes Available

    Hey guys, I've been a bit out of touch over the last year or so relocating to Texas and settling in, but its time to start focusing on my 2011 Sho a bit more. I lived in Cali for a couple of years so i was limited to the Stage 4 tune but because of the limited octane in Cali, i was running the...

    Livernois 91 verses 93 octane tune.

    I recently moved from Cali where it was ultra tough finding 93 octane, so i was restricted to running the Livernois stage 4, 91 octane tune. I now live in Texas where 93 octane is available....my question is this, is the 93 tune going to be a noticable difference over the 91 ? I would need to...

    SHO me your rearend

    Heres a pic of the front end...not the best pic, but it was dark by the time I got home so its the best i can do for now. And JasonoftheRugar, that exhaust looks like it was just installed, **** the entire undercarriage is spotless. So either you have much more time on your hands than I do to...

    SHO me your rearend

    I know many of you have posted pics of the changes you have made to various components of your SHO's rearends, and after doing some detailing this afternoon, I thought I would share some pics of mine. Some of the subtle changes I have made over time : * Slightly tinted tailights. * Slightly...

    PTU no fluid ??

    Ok , so the final update on my several month project...... Some of you may have gone back to my old threads on the misfire issue that eventually I found was a collapsed piston ring land on # 4. I drove the car on a very limited basis until it finally went into limp mode , so I put it in the...

    PTU no fluid ??

    Thanks for the feedback, I dont have access to the unit or i would clean it myself, so I will need to rely on the shop to possibly do it for me. The car has 76k on the clock and is a 2011. Im going to see what the cost of the new unit is and go from there. thanks,

    PTU no fluid ??

    So I'm having some major engine work done, which meant the PTU was pulled as well, so I ask to have the fluid changed in the PTU while it was out of the car. The mechanic called me today and said that the PTU had zero fluid, but plenty of sludge buildup. Minor leak at the rear seal, but didnt...

    Misfire at Idle.

    At this point there isnt proof that the added HP from the tune caused the issue. I assume the piston was weak or had a stress crack in the land, so im sure the added HP added to the failure, but cant say for sure it was 100% to blame ?

    Misfire at Idle.

    yes , I was quoted $ 7k for a new long block, which i believe even includes the intake, old motor pulled and new one installed , all labor out the door. Obviously i would probably replace a few things like belts, hoses, etc, while its out so that may add a few bucks...but i didnt think it was...

    Misfire at Idle.

    Not much of an update at this time.....I could rebuild it but I don't have the time or space to take on that level of work at this time. I have made several calls to various shops and found that for some reason, they wont take on the work of a rebuild on these engines, they only do the full...

    In need of a new motor

    Keep in mind I was running the LMS 91+4 tune with 3bar, so that obviously added some additional load to the piston and rings. I always ran premium gas, but there's always that chance of a tank of bad gas causing some detonation which could have caused the damage I experienced, also there is a...

    In need of a new motor

    I fried a piston awhile ago......collapsed piston ring land to be specific. For some reason they don't rebuild these motors, typically just drop a new/used one in ? I had another post here awhile back when I was trying to diagnose my "Misfire" issue, which I finally did and found it to be the...
