Assuming everything is mechanically in order, you will be fine to get to your tuner's as long as you stay off the high cam.

wow 115 miles.
...which doesn't matter as long as he stays out of the throttle. Keep it in close-loop, which means that AF automatically trims itself and the there will be no advance to worry about at part-throttle. Do you guys not understand how an engine works?

I understnd how it WORKS. but obviously not as well as you, my friend. 115 seemed like a very large distance to travel. that is all.

I put a stage 2 ZEX cam in my SOHC cam a long time ago and drove about 2 weeks with it like that before I got it tuned lol. It never did any damage. Not saying that was smart because it wasn't. BUT you will be fine like he said as long as you give VERY light throttle and do NOT go into high cam as long as everything mechanically is properly done.

yea definitely. If you have a laptop and K-Pro yourself and have used it before then do a little street tuning on it before hand.
