I got mine from BNRacing and they were great and walked me through the whole thing. Did hear of some problems getting the ghost cam installed but I think they worked those bugs out long ago. Can't tell if you have an automatic transmission. That part alone is worth all of it!! You notice the shift points changed and are much firmer.If you are planning more mods they have free upgrades as well.

2012 with automatic. I have two tunes one for motor passes and one for nytrous passes. They both work great. Pricing, mine I got from BNR when they had a group buy special, plus I got both tunes at once and the cable. I have other mods with the tunes, so my feedback for performance numbers will differ from a stock engine. I have had no issues with the tunes and I switch them around several times a month. No Ghost Cam feature for the 2012s V6 LFX yet.

I had them leave my shifting in D the same, but firmer in S mode. The added sportiness is nice.

As for performance to me it seemed to help response in the lower rpms and add some midrange pull, but it wasn't huge. Don't expect the car to become a new monster or anything, but it is an improvement. I had a few mods like intake, exhaust, and ported throttle body at the time.
