Purchased Jet Power Module

I went ahead & got the Jet Power Module from Auto Anything $227.00 with free shipping.The install was very easy took about 10 min. total time.I am impressed with it so far,I noticed a heck of alot more low end get up & go (torque).Faster acceleration throughout the power band just on regular fuel.They recommend premium octane for best results but I havent tried it with that yet.The car is definantly more peppy,and seems more lively now.

A tune voids warranty. Can't you just unplug this when you go to dealership and not have anything to worry about?

No issues with cai,I have the SLP.No check engine lights.A tune would be better only if you wanted to delete your top speed limiter.

I got the stage 1 for stock no mods other than cai.I think stage 2 requires free flow exhaust system & cooler thermostat

Which SLP do you have? And do you like it?

Not saying they don't improve the feel, but pretty sure they do little more than increase the percentage of throttle at a given time and also help decrease the hesitation in the "drive by wire" systems.

I don't believe any real power is gained, it just applies the throttle better.

Please correct if wrong.

They do more than this. The spark timing curve is changed, as well as the fuel tables. You do get a few extra ponies from this add-on, but only if it's the only add-on. When used in combination with exhaust systems, CAI, etc, the gain is negligible.

JET says this is good for 13 hp and 11 with an intake.

I've yet to see anything jet makes actually make any power. I'd be willing to bet you money this is nothing compared to a trifecta tune. Buy a real tune from me and if this jet chip really is better, I'll refund the tune plus pay for the jet chip.

Speaking of tunes. Does anyone have a tune that can be flashed back to stock without updating the counter so that the dealership won't void the warranty when you take it in?

I would love a tune for my auto V6LS but I don't want to void my rather extensive extended warranty.

Trifecta has all that. you can reflash your car to stock and also have transparence mode which fools the dealer into not seeing anything being tuned.
+ the v6's dont carry a 'flashcounter' like the v8's do, from what ive read extensively in this extremely helpful forum

That's for the 2011 ECU.... I haven't heard anything about the 2012 ECU not having a flash counter. Maybe bnr can chime in
