V6 BEING TUNED TODAY!

Vince at Trifecta Performance is tuning one of the Beta volunteers V6 Camaros today. I will post results and the dyno graph as soon as he gets back to me. Vince is currently the only one tuning the V6 Camaro. Hopefully we are going to see some nice power gains.

I did the beta for the V8/L99 and speak with Vince almost daily. We spoke this morning as he was on the way to the dyno.

Very cool....

I wouldn't exactly say he is the only one tuning... Technically it's not available to the general public... And I know other companies are certainly working on it... While he may be ahead as far as being first to market, the other guys are probably not that far behind...

True. Should have said at this time.

Thanks for keeping us posted! There will be a lot of excitement here if he's successful!

Very nice! I assume the bulk of the increase is due to running more timing for premimum fuel? Anything else you can comment on regarding what was changed?

edit - wow, I just realized these guys are based out of the same little town I live in. Good to know there is a tuner close by.

I was the lucky volunteer - WooHoo!

Wow, good news travels fast - the dyno chart posted here is from my automatic SIM 2LT/RS. This was the first time that I'd had a car on a dyno - it was really cool. To be honest, I did have a bit of hesitation, but the rewards were well worth it.

We did a quick baseline on my car with the original stock ECM, and then he swapped out the stock for his ECM, and we were off to the races.

He went thru multiple pulls making adjustments each time, answering any ( and all ) questions that I might have had. If my memory serves, he adusted the fuel/air tables and the cam phasing, and you see the gains that were had. We ran out of time, but other adjustments were on the menu - shift points, fan temps, etc. I'm fairly sure that there's more fun to be had.

Regarding the fuel: When I arrived at Drift Office I had 3/4 of a tank of 87 octane, and he suggested that I top if off with 92 octane, which I did. I have no objective way of knowing what difference that might have made.

When all was said and done, we did a quick drive to get a "butt dyno" feel for it, and the car felt more willing to rev and once you get it up past 3K rpms or so, everything wakes up very nicely.

While the car was up on the lift, we noticed a minor rear diff leak, so I'm going to be taking it in to the dealer for service. To that end, we put my stock ECM back in place, and I can certainly tell the difference. Once the dealer service is done, I'll be re-loading the new tune. I can't wait!

Thanks to Vince, and the good folks at Drift Office.

Here's Vince's blurb:

“Here’s dyno results from what we believe to be the first aftermarket-tuned 2010 Camaro V6. Peak gains were 24HP and 17TQ at the wheels, almost a 10% gain. The car was bone stock other than an AirRaid intake. Tuned by Trifecta Performance using their own tuning solution along with Palmer Performance’s ScanXL data logger package. Dyno services were provided by Drift Office LLC of Auburn, WA.”
