Anyone ever done a tune on their stock SS? Of so what was your experience? Any noticeable difference or waste of time?

Welcome to the site! Oh yea lots of people have tuned their trucks. From Handled to custom EFI live tunes. Depending on what you are looking to do there are many changes you are able to make. Changing tire size for proper shifting, Flex-Fuel, bolts ons or just looking for better fuel economy. All is possible.

getting a custom tune will be very noticeable...with TMGt and the PE delay a tune can feel like 50hp

Black Bear made me a custom tune for my Whipple Charged SS via Auto Cal and it's as precise as a Dyno tune!

Black Bear is great - hooks me up right away with AutoCal updates anytime I need to change something due to new hardware addations.
