I gotta say...

The sound of that snarling little V6 Camaro out on the dyno right now is awesome.

It has this great buzz to it when you roll into the throttle...nice.

I'll keep you guys posted as we start to see some numbers!

Thanks
Mike

I'd like to see that direct injection adapted onto an LS based V8.

11.3 to 1 compression and Direct Injection would do quite nicely on a big V8.

Those V-6's do snarl nicely with compression that high. And that's on 87. I'll bet if you went to a 93 octane application with Direct Injection you could crank the compression up above 12 to 1.

I am positive you'll be seeing more and more DI applications from the OEMs in the very near future...

Well, I gotta take this thing home tonight and try to drain this tank of 87 octane (I dont think that will be a problem ) then fill it up with the good stuff and shoot for the stars...

DiabloSport doesn't sell directly to the end-user...

You'd need to get it from a dealer/reseller, so any "group-buy" deal would need to be put on by them...

did the 87oct tune net anything substantial? I would guess minor gains...with 87 on cai, I'm mostly hopeful a decent transmission adjustment would be the biggest gainer on the v6 autos. Can you make it shift firmer and up in sport mode automatically at 6500-ish rpm or something like that if the driver doesn't tap the shift paddles?
