It's not even configured to work with a modified car, so I would save up for a professional tune that modifies way more parameters and will net twice the gains.

+1

Canned tunes are meant to maximize a completely stock setup. That being said, GM did a very good job tuning this car for performance. Many cars in the past were able to pick up quite a bit of HP from these canned tunes. For our cars, it's more in the 10-15whp range as 62 posted.
