V6 Tune?

I have a 2012/auto K&N axel Backs, Convertible. What kind of Horse power gains would I see if I did a tune?

Mat with FSP in Florida is known around here for his tuning on the LFX engines. He typically sees 15 - 20 HP or so which is very good. Not sure if that is on premium only though.

I personally feel the 30+ gains claimed by Trifecta are over-inflated, since that tune which achieved those results was on a Cadillac CTS engine.

15-20 sounds about right. Wasn't it IPF that continually used gains on a Cadillac in their graphs?

I know with the IPF tune I had, it was premium fuel only.

If you end up doing a dyno tune, let me know what shop you use, for future reference. There are a couple of dynos near me, one of them gets only so-so reviews, the other is geared more toward Mustangs and imports.

Then there is Doug Rippie in Waverly, but he specializes more in 'Vettes.
