Lightbulb People With SuperChips Tuners for the Camaro SS.

(EDITED 2.19.10: Warning,... Read Complete Thread, Problem With SC Tuner for 2010 Camaro 2SS.)

Hi Guys.

Well I ordered myself the SuperChips Cortex 2950 Handheld Tuner today, I got a Really good price on it, The Cortex was only a few dollars more than the Flashpaq 2865 so I decided to spend the extra and get the Cortex in hopes that 1 day it'll actually do more than what the Flashpaq does.

But anyway my question is,...

I'm looking for people who have installed the SuperChips Tuner in to their New Camaro and what Performance Setup Settings were you happy with using and what those settings were so that when I get mine I can quickly set it up with something that you might already be happy with and then I could go from there Tweaking anything I feel should be changed after using it.

Your Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated, Any Suggestions or Advice would be helpful.

Thanks
Jim

No one has the SC Tuner for the 2010 Camaro 2SS that is willing to Share your Settings?

I'm not sure you can tweak anything. You load their tune and that's about it. You can monitor stuff, but you can't do any changes with this unit.

Yep,...

You are right.
I got my Cortex in the Mail today and went right to getting it updated and then Tuning the 2SS right away.

I used the 93 Octane Performance tune, Theres not much you can screw up here,... Even when asked to increase the Rev Limiter,... I hit OK and then the next screen was Completed hit OK.

I dont even know what it increased the Rev Limter to.

I also disabled the Skip-Shift even though i really didnt see it all that often anyway but it'll be nice to be able to shift it in to 2nd at slower speeds when that opportunity comes.

After programming, I took my car out for a short ride and man,... I can definitely tell a difference now that it's programmed.

I can't hardly wait until everything is broken in now that my exhaust, Intake and Tuner is done to it.

I wonder what my HP & Torq will be.
I'm guessing 450-460ish on the HP..

WTF,...

Today I went to Harbor Freight & Tools to pick up some stuff for the Car and while driving I still kept getting the Shift to 4th Gear so for some reason the Skip Shift Isn't Working.

I tried to update the Programmer again and it said that it was all updated, No Updates were available for the tuner.

I havent tried to Re-Tune my Camaro yet because the weather was pretty Crappy this evening.

Has anyone have this Issue with their Tuner where the Skip Shift isn't working?

It makes me wonder if the Car even got programmed because today I couldn't really tell a difference.

Thought's / Suggestions?

I have the original camaro edition tuner from superchips, as my car was one of their test cars. I have had no issues with the tuner. It works great. RWHP gains were in the area of 15-18 hp with no other modifications or parts additions.
