Stick on vents netted me 16rwhp. I've got an appt for next week. They are gonna install one of those die cut jesus stickers and some chrome molding. Should be near ZL1 territory at that point.

Hi everbody

when you want REAL power Upgrades .... try IPF-TUNING ... I did many camaros with LFX and AT in our Tuningcenter in Shanghai ... and we gained good results with different CAI Systems ... but CAI alone has no real effect on power from what we tested !

here the compare ... same cars .. same Setup same CAI

1 camaro LFX customers with compatitor Tuning had to buy New ECUs because of frozen ECUs ... no way to put them back to stock ... NOT by GM MDI or other ways ...

From what I've seen just by walking by a couple times they install Cold Air Intakes and I saw them disassembling a stock exhaust system and I'm assuming they were replacing it with an aftermarket one.

I had an IPF tune when I was pre-supercharger. It worked.

Of course, I still have an IPF tune that also works, but I'm a little beyond where you're at now.

Ah, just checked and it looks like that the addition of the e39a and 13 Camaro is new since I last looked into it... this is good news!

Also just found this recent post on the HPT forum:

I have the Trifecta tune on my 2012 LS manual and it is WAY better than stock. It pulls harder, idles better, and less soot on exhaust tips which tells me it is managing the fuel metering OK. Not sure what is not so great about the tune for a manual

My mods:
CAI cold air intake
Ported Throttle Body
Hurst shifter
Borla Axle back
Trifecta tune


Car runs great. I think I will crack into the 13's if it cools off some. Best of 14.11 on a hot Florida day with so-so 60 ft. times and some wheel-spin. Ran high 14's stock.
0-60's are ~ mid 5's.

Not bad for a 3800 lb V6 with a 200 pound driver.
