That's pretty good, letting them tune their engines an keep the warranty. I do imagine the tune aren't that radical but still allowing a little playtime is pretty nice.

GM did the same with the Kappa cars ... The LNF gained 30hp and 80tq and kept the warranty intact for $600. I had it on my 07 Sky Redline, and it made a very big difference.

I would love if GM allowed this on our cars. Add a CAI, 10% pullies, headers and a then a tune would make the ZL a competitor on all venues. Not that it doesn't perform well now but I'd be a whole lot happier at the drags and still have my warranty.

4 cyl turbo over 6 cyl N/A... Pretty easy choice, 4 cyl wins.

yeah too bad turbo 4 bangers just make me flacid. I wish they were offering something like that on a car I would actually buy.

Forced Induction is the Replacement for Displacement...

It was pretty fun embarrassing N/A V8's in my old 4 Cyl SC. With a turbo it would have been that much easier and cheaper...

A 10% OD pulley and tune would be perfectly safe and a nice power package. They should look at offering these...

Nothing new. Ford racing has tunes for 2005 and up. You get a 12k, 12 month warranty. Ford racing has some nice stuff and supports the cars far better than gmpp in my experience. Ford racing is the aftermarket branch just like gmpp is for Chevy.

Yea, I just don't see no value in it at the end of the day! I can't see telling someone that I have a 4 cylinder muscle car! But that's just me ! I laughed at Hondas all day because they used to try to race me when I had my V6 ! Lol... It was embarrassing to see it ! I guess I'm in minority with this stuff! Bring the Prius muscle cars too! I have nothing against 4 cylinders just don't care for them in a muscle car!

Agreed! We had a GXP and Redline and the GM tune was money well spent. The wife kept her Sky at this level while I moved on to a more aggressive tune. Loved to watch the look on the face of Camaro SS and Mustang 5.0's drivers as I pulled past them in my mighty 2.0!!! At least until around 120... My GXP had the aerodynamics of a brick.

Back on topic I think all turbo cars leave a lot on the table when it comes to tuning. I wished our Camaro's had a bit more left for just a tune. My understanding is there is not much left without adding bolt-on's.
