As far as I know there are no chips for the V6. Trifecta offers a tune that is good for 13 HP I believe. 312+13 =325 Not too shabby.

no way in hell you can get +34 hp from just a chip. The BS comment is not directed to you, but the companies that are advertising those gains.

They are trash. Scam. Avoid. You cannot install a chip into the ECU. You will never get 34 hp from their cheap junk.

Yeah John, steer clear of the snake oil. The LLT is a tricky beast and we all just have to deal with ithe cards we were dealt. Right now the only game in town is Trifecta Tune.
