If I were to put in a 14:1 piston, cams, and a port job, do you think the EFI will adjust with no problem? I don't know too much about EFI so give me your .02.

You will definitely have some tuning to do with those kind of mods...I'd suggest it even with a pipe/filter combo *If this machine is like any other fuel injected machine ever made*

Question though:

Why so high on the compression? 14:1 is getting way up there

More compression = more power :D And I know a guy that may have some pistons out for the LTR soon and he will have 14:1 available.

Would I just bring it to the dealer to have it tuned?

Dealerships normally don't "support" fuel injection tuning, it's normally an aftermarket part that does this (Power commander).

If the power commander system is how the LTR does end up working - You'd have to buy a power commander and do it yourself, or bring it to a different mechanic shop and let them do it

Another thing - Once you get over the 13.5:1 compression ratio, those motors start running way hot. If you set it up right 14:1 will run great, but you're going to have to keep a close eye on that cooling system

I thought I read about a "yoshimura" chip being availble. if thats the case.... then I'm sure the yosh tuning software will hit the street in a stolen, copied or similar version along with the maps. when that happens..... then only limit will be the tuners limit. And having it as an ECU system, for the money, a person could run something like Haltec, Motec, Autronics, HydraEMS, SDS, etc etc. but with those you'll have to permanetly have to mount an O2 sensor and a MAP or MAF sensor.
