Hey guys, I'm getting ready to order a tuned PCM from Will over at Overkilled Motorsports. Just went on his website and found out that because he's on vacation he's put a 25% discount on tuned PCMs! It's only until August 8th so order yours soon...I'm ordering mine tonight! Can't wait!!

just wanted to share this information with you all.

depends on what mods you are planning, you wont need a retune. His basic tune will work with all bolt ons. Its when you get into top swaps / cam / heads when you need better tuning. In that case, you wont want an off the shelf tune anyway, you would want a custom dyno tune.

I plan on ordering one basically because I put in a 180* t-stat, and also put in the shift kit. I heard it was one of the best upgrades that you can do to a pretty much stock L36 so I say, hell; why not?

In the notes you can put what mods you have performed and he'll adjust it accordingly...if I tell Will that I have a shift kit in, he'll probably adjust the shifts to the settings of the shift kit.

Yessir I did have a lot of issues ever since the accident. But doing the shift kit probably had to be the best thing for my imp, it has never shifted/driven better. The shifts are so instantaneous, I am almost 100% certain there is 0 slipping between shifts. Almost shifts as well as my mom's 2010 Malibu 3.6 6 speed.

As of right now almost all the parts came in.
-Hood
-LS Bumper
-SS Indy Grille
-2 New Fog Lights
-New headlights should be in soon
-Bumper Cover Support


The Bumper and Hood both need to be painted, but are primer'd and ready to go. Otherwise, it's almost back to normal.

If I had the money, I'd have the entire car re-painted; black, including the body moldings..but unfortunately I'm only 16, and 7.75/hr doesn't help too much in getting all these bills paid. :/

I'll be placing the order tonight, but when I get it in the mail and all installed; I'll definitely report back!
