Just installed a stage 2 (3" sc pulley and 42 lb injectors) in my 05 RL and I'm looking for a good tuner in or near Fresno area that can help me with the tuning portion of the stage 2. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry I was not very specific. I came across a good deal on a GM 77.9mm 4 bolt SC pulley and a set of Lucas 42lb injectors (part of a stage 2 kit) this are already installed in my RL, I'm running the stock tune. Now I need to find a good tuner that will tune my RL to get the benefit of the added parts. I don't think my local GM dealer would be so kind to do a stage 2 tune, besides I believe they need the code that comes with the kit when you order it from them. So that is where I'm at, the RL is running ok but aside from the rich condition, I know from the P0172 code it has. Any help is appreciated.
To modify the stock stage kit tune?

Thanks for the reply, its not close but not far, just a nice 3 hr drive from Fresno. If I have no other choice I just might. PM me with a quote of how much your fees would be, so I can gauge my expenses.
I am up in Vacaville. I have HPT and could do a stage 2 tune and maybe modify it to your liking. Let me know.

I can't believe that is running like that. Remove those injectors now... You're getting a rich code because you are pouring fuel into your motor man. Must smoke black and get terrible fuel economy?

Actually its running pretty decent other wise good, no smoke no fuss just the code which I erased with my hand held scanner just to see what it would do. It started righ away when I finished installing the pulley and injectors, also took the opportunity to do a dual pass on the sc cooling. It pulls ok but I know it supposed to be a lot better with the correct tune. If its supposed to be running bad then I don't know what's going on with. I asure you its running ok with out any fuss, I'm just a little worried about the cat since I know for a fact a rich condition is not good for it, thats why I'm just driving it to and from work 5 mile round trip. Might have to drive it 3hr away to tennpenn83 for a tune if we are a le to arrange something.

I'd still swap the injectors. Leave the pulley and stay out of boost, and yes that is a lot of carbon on your cat. Either way hope you get a tune one way or another

Honestly I'd go back to stock injectors as well until you're tuned. They are not hard to switch out, 10-15 minutes tops.
