How Can I Tune??????!!!!!!!!

I have a 2013 2LS and I wanted to do the CAI and tuner combination to start but I can't find any tuners/programers for the V6 model. Please let me know of any websites that offer tuners or if its possible to free up my HP and get 91 octane through dynos?

Thanks

Id go with a Trifecta Tune from Bad News Racing. They seem to have the best bang for the buck http://store.badnewsracing.net/

Thanks. Would I be able to take it to my local auto body and would they be able to free up my Hp for cheaper? If not I'll buy from badnewsracing.net.

Like Pep Boys for instance. I live nearby one and I always see them modding cars.
Can they free up my 15 HP stock and dyno it there?

Just know tuning your car voids your warranty. If I'm not mistaken. Just as math stated badnews is the place to go. Good luck

Just a heads up, I've heard not so great things about the tune for a manual. Automatic is suppose to very good.

You should contact Trifecta directly... There was an ECU change from 2012 to 2013... Currently neither EFI Live, or HP Tuners can tune the 2013 ECU, and niether can tune the 2010-2011 as well...

Most likely the odds are that pepboys will not be able to help you...

Want to make more power? Best bet is to buy a cold air intake, high flow cats, ported throttle body, and keep an eye on the products we are currently developing for the 2012-2014 v6.

Also, if you haven't already, get rid of the stock steel wheels, they are HEAVY... Go with something lighter and your will FEEL a big difference in acceleration.

Thanks. I heard installing a CAI without a tune is pointless?

Not true. You can install quite a few things without a tune and still end up with a nice gain... However, you can feel/show an even better gain with a tune, but to my knowledge the 2013 is currently untunable, so do your research.

Please do, last I had read, it was read support only according to this post, and almost every other search I've done on the internet:

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=298779

Just came across this:

http://www.hptuners.com/forum/showth...9A-ECM-support

Perhaps the e39a is ready to rock? If so, I need a tune...

Puh-leeze. There's a world of difference between an oil and tire change place and the people who work there versus an actual tuner. Pep Boys is not a tuning shop.
