Tuning 2012 SS

I previously read somewhere that the 2012 SS won't hold a tune due to different programming because they changed the ECM to a different manufacturer. Is this true?

True, I also had a 2011 that held a tune but from what I heard was that Chevy changed out the ECM to a different manufacturer for the 2012's. I'll try and get ahold of my friend that works very close with the GM guys and see what he says. It just startled me when I read the post because I might get a tune on the '12.

They changed the ECU on the V6. Pretty sure the V8 is the same as 10/11. Now the V6 and V8 have the same manufacturer of the ECU. They used to use different ones.

Are we talking V8 or V6, I have tuned almost 100, 2012 V8s with No Issues.

Camaro Corvette GTO Trans Am Truck performance tuner in Tampa

No issues with the 2012 V8s camaro or corvette

Several companies are researching tuning the 2012 V6 because of the use of a differant PCM than the 2010-2011 V6.
