Im in Seattle, but the only LS1 based engine Ive tuned is an 02 5.3 in a Suburban. That said, YES you can make more power with a tune. Surprised you dont have one already, a good tune is usually worth 15-20rwhp! Couple that with an LS6 intake and its probably closer to 25-30.
If you ever make it up to Seattle let me know!
