It was a old article I read awhile ago before the first Silverado even had hit the road. So guess things have changed and I am wrong.

I was kind of hoping it was true just so there would be more tuning support for the LLT, a little bit selfish of me but I'll live lol

Not selfish i'd say the tuning companies are being selfish and lazy not getting in on a market that is drooling for support.

In most cases V8 supersedes V6 all day in production and development. In this case, I'm not really sure.

This was the same problem the community was having when I was running with the supercharged Grand Prix guys. A few companies stepped up, but got greedy and started ripping guys off with shoddy parts and poor tuning.

I wouldn't go so far as to say a market that is drooling for support... More like a handful of people on this website. When you consider that 50-60% of the total amount of 5th gens out there in the world today are v6 cars; if all 200-250k of them wanted something, it would probably get made.

This site has about 94k members, some of them don't even own a 5th gen Camaro, so figure at some point or another about 15-20% of all new Camaro puchases since late 2009 have registered on here at some point but not all members are active, I'd guess than less than half of that 15-20% are v6 owners... split that in half again for the LLT vs LFX engine crowds... LLT only being a 2 year run; the market looks pretty nil to me.

IPS/Fabberge had already stated in their post halfway down the section here, that if they could get at least 5 people committed they could probably make a kit... Get your money out, and they will build it.

I'm curious too as mine's an LLT. I'm hoping I can have a go at fitting this kit to my car when funds permit, bring it down under

Like Gretchin said, it's the Bosch cpu for the LLT'S that's the problem, but hp tuners has come out with a tune for the LLT"s. I had my supercharger tuned with HP software by J&M, and the car is running great. I'm going to J&M Motorsports tomorrow, I'll ask them if they would be able to do a TT.

Hay Guys, before you order the TT for the LLT, make sure your tuner has the know how with the HP tune, J&M in Ct. and Red Line in Fl. are, and should be able to, but talk to your tuner before ordering.
