    1996 camaro z28 HELP!!!

    really looking to increase my knowledge on tuning im a novice data logger i guess you can say and i wanna start tuning (yes i know its not an overnight process) but the best advice i got besides taking classes is tuning your own stuff which leaves me with this 96 4th gen z28 for $4k decent miles just seen hptuners only supports 98 and up . camaros??? what would i need to do to make hptuners work for the 96????

    Lt1 platform is only supported with a select few software options. Unfortunately hpt is not one.

    Or completely re-wire the vehicle and convert over to a 411 computer/harness.

    Or sell it and buy a 98+ LS1 camaro, I'd go for a 2000-2002 personally.
    2016 Silverado CCSB 5.3/6L80e, not as slow but still heavy.

    look up 24x conversion. Your engine can be made to use the ls1 ecm, harness, coils, etc, however it is very pricey, and that money would be spent better on a ls1 car, as mentioned above, 2000-2002
