which is the best tune for a 2011 3.6 1LT

I am wanting to get a tune for my 2011 V-6 3.6L and am just curious as to what experiences some of my fellow Camaro owners have had. I have added a K&N CAI & MRT V2 axle back exhaust. Doesnt seem like I am getting the power or potential that I should be getting so therefore the tune.
What seems to be the best tune for the $.. Trifecta or others. Suggestions greatly appreciated.
(No "should have bought a V8" please. I already know that but couldn't afford it)

You have an LLT which has a Bosch ECM. When I got my tune the best was IPF. I can say my IPF tune is really great. Tracy at RX seems to believe that trifecta has finally got a Bosch tune that's good. I have not seen one yet that was close to an oem tune, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been worked on.

the best tune is one that adds hp and has good drivability

Seriously these mail-order tunes help, but aren't the BEST. A better tune than a mail-order is a custom dyno&drivability tune. Different climates affect tunes differently....

He's right. I got my tune from trifecta and its great. But still datalogging and getting updates for drivability. Dyno tuning is the best for power and drivability. It all depends on whats in your area. I don't have a dyno anywhere near me that would touch my car for some reason. Hence the trifecta tune.
