Jeremy Formato is returning to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania October 26-November 2

If you’re interested in having your car tuned, please email or PM us with your basic info...name, phone number, vehicle and any major mods and your desired appointment date and time!


We require a $100.00 deposit to secure your appointment. You can send payment via PayPal to [email protected] or we also accept Visa, MC, and American Express.

Dyno tuning starts at $550 (Includes 1 hour dyno time). Prices subject to change. Add $50 for speed density and multi bar boost tuning. Add $75 for E85 tuning.

In addition to tuning, we offer porting for many factory and aftermarket cylinder heads, intake manifolds, superchargers, and throttle bodies which produce exciting dyno-proven results. We do our best to offer the most aggressively-ported manifolds money can buy and we test on the dyno and street to ensure safety and driveability. Fasterproms takes pride in offering our customers high-quality service and workmanship to make sure that you leave feeling confident.

Tuning for LT- Gen II, LS - Gen III and Gen IV, and LT - Gen V small-blocks.

Unlike most tuners, we go much further into the code when modifying timing, air/fuel, fuel economy, driveability, and torque management. We keep you involved every step of the way as we go through and alter your program file - showing you the changes we’re making, what tables we’re tweaking, and Jeremy is more than happy to help explain how these improve your vehicle. With input from your specification, we will tune the vehicle from idle, through wide open throttle, and optimize the vehicle’s full potential for power and fuel efficiency without sacrificing any longevity.

With our custom tuning we address many of the limitations the factory has placed on the vehicle. GMs minimum of 91-octane fuel allows us to gain power if we are using a fuel of greater octane. Later model vehicles lose a vast amount of power as they heat up, which we combat by altering minimum fan temps to help the car run cooler – increasing power and consistency. You also don’t have to be racing to enjoy what we can do for you. Daily drivers can still have a bit more fun on your daily commute. If it’s the pesky 1-to-4 skip shift, the hot coolant temp, lack of power, fuel economy, throttle response, slow or soft trans shifts, shift points, WE CAN HELP. The car will accelerate much smoother, have sharper response, and more power when we optimize the tune.

Intake and Throttle Body Porting

With a ported throttle body, you will feel greatly improved throttle response and in the bottom end/mid range a strong, seat-of-the-pants increase. Many liken the difference to ‘taking about 350lbs out of the vehicle.’ It truly makes the car much more fun to drive. Our Manifolds are very thoroughly ported not only in the runners but also much of the plenum and TB flange are enlarged in order to support more airflow from idle, thru the upper RPM range. The larger the air reservoir is, the less likely it is to deplete the greater volume in the upper RPM. Hence the difference of the '00 LS1 intake vs the '01 LS6 intake, a small plenum volume change gained 10 RWHP and 10RWTQ.

We also port FAST LSX manifolds. We have been modifying our LSX manifolds more extensively than our competitors and found more power in certain areas that others do not touch. We open the TB flanges as well as reshape the bell-mouth port entry and increase plenum volume, resulting in a minimum average gain of10RWHP and 10RWTQ average gain over non ported FAST's.

LS1 and LS6 intake manifolds are not ported, as we have seen no measurable gains in porting these intakes, the runners and plenum are thin and without obstruction. If an upgrade is desired we suggest the FAST 92mm LSX manifold for ’01-‘04 model years or, if you have a ’97-’00 model year, you can also benefit from a factory LS6 intake or FAST 92mm.

Based on a core exchange the Stage 2 intake manifold is currently $375.00, a stage 1 is $300.00, and if you add a ported throttle body, it's only an additional $100.00.

Horsepower and torque gains are always fluctuating based on the particular vehicle and its level of modifications, but on average when tuned the following gains can be expected :

Stage 1 LS2 - 11 rwhp/13rwtq
Stage 1 LS3 - 10 rwhp/12rwtq
Stage 1 LS7 - 17rwhp/19rwtq

Stage 2 LS2 - 17 rwhp/19rwtq
Stage 2 LS3 - 14 rwhp/19rwtq

On the LS2's and LS7's in particular, with Jeremy's tuning we have seen 30 rwhp and 30rwtq gains.


Cylinder Head and Supercharger Porting


Just like the expensive aftermarket intake manifolds, we also understand that not everyone can afford the big-dollar heads for their build. Our meticulously hand-ported and professionally-machined heads are an extremely affordable bang-for-the-buck modification that makes very good power any combination can benefit from. We can reduce chamber size for increased compression, perform a 5-angle valve job, fully port intake/exhaust sides, and assemble with high-lift springs. For LS7 owners in fear of dropping/breaking the factory valves, we can replace them with stainless valves and avoid potentially harming your engine. These modifications can be done to various levels that can fit into your budget and build.

If you own a new LSA or LS9 powered vehicle, you’re also in luck. We offer full porting service for throttle bodies, snouts, and blower cases, as well as pulley swaps and our very own solid isolators. This porting service is a good, sneaky mod that can give you that extra bump in power to provide the edge or knock down that timeslip goal with repeatable power gains.

We have been tuning for over 13 years and have literally tuned thousands of LSX-based vehicles from stock to 1100HP. We are based in FL but travel all around the country dyno tuning and porting. We know what it takes to make your car live up to its utmost potential! We will be glad to answer any questions you might have. If we don’t know we will find out. We are honest, devoted to what we do, and we will do our best to make sure that you are 100% satisfied.

How is your car coming along?

Funny you should ask...

I just got it Saturday. With the exception of a seemingly minor hiccup, it's running GREAT. I'm back to the stock motor mounts and, boy, are those a significant improvement from the near-solid/solid motor mounts that D3 gave me. I'd likely purchase a new hood before I went that route again...

WOT is as smooth as it's ever been and drivability is pretty damn nice (with one exception, described above).

I'll start a thread once I get some additional information (like a dyno run on the dyno it's been on since it was a virgin... :) )

Glad to hear it.
I've seen it at a couple places the past 18 months, and saw the 2.3L come off, etc.
Glad it's running much better. I hope you get some seat time and can enjoy it.

Definitively. I have asked Adrian for updates occasionally. He seems to know everything about everybody. Lol

LMAO! Exactly!

I keep telling him that he should transfer to the Missing Persons department for that exact reason!

Lol. I just text'd him to ask him that. That's great.

I keep telling him he gets his parts the Vic Mackey way, a shakedown.

Lol.

When will you guys/Jeremy come to the West Coast?


That might be a "tough sell" since I seem to recall him saying that there is more than enough work just in Florida. To get who many consider ( myself included) the best tuner out there you may have to "make him an offer he can't refuse." LOL

This guy is so busy he probably doesn't even know or cares who Biebs is. (I thought you guys out there were going to have the little snot deported ?)
We tried. Even signed the WH petition.

Maybe Jerry has a daughter who wants a ride in Bieb's car...lol.

How about a week in warm and DRY climate?

Come on, there's so much to do here.... ;)

That's a long hike, it may be a while! I am not one to say never, however!
