IPF TUNE - WORTH IT?
 
Anyone here have the IPF tune on your V6? Is it worth the cost? Please let me know what you think of it. Also, i have the Vitesse throttle controller. How does this play into the IPF tune? Gonna have some extra $$$ soon. Thinking about my next mod..

Any input from others with the IPF tune would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I have the IPF tune. Had it done by Mike at Hillbank Motorsports. Love it. I also got the throttle controller when it came out. Plays very well with the tune. As a matter of fact the throttle controller felt like I got another IPF tune on top of the on I already had....times 3!!!!

IPF Tune is the way to go on the V6

Love my IPF tune on my LLT, but the programming is a different animal from the LFX engine. That said, still hear good things. But HP tuners is also a super strong choice for the LFX.

Thanks, KMPrenger. You are correct the LLT and LFX and completely different animals as you already know. If you have access to an HP shop that has allot of experience with HP and this particular engine you can get good results, however not all tuners have the ability to correctly map these engines. We have been doing this for a long time and guarantee the results are reliable and safe. Over 70,000 customers globally using IPF Tuning since 2003. We have been tuning the DI engines since they were first introduced and have done 1000's of Camaro's. We also have the ability for the customer to remove and re-install the tuning files as they please for warranty purposes. Hope this helps.

How did you like that shop? I am looking for a place in So Cal that will tune my car.

Right on. I might be a little reluctant to take my car to a shot that hasn't tuned the Camaro V6, or many DI engines before.

Nick, Mike and Ashton at Hillbank Motorsports are awesome to interact with. I bumped into them at SEMA in December also. Highly knowledgeable, treat your car as if it was theirs and explain everything in detail. Great showroom and the cleanest, most organized garage I have ever seen. I see you're in SD so that would be a bit of a drive. If you have a free day and are willing do it, I highly recommend it. I actually have Nick's personal number so if you are really interested, let me know and I can give it to you via PM. The tune takes a bout an hour to an hour and a half to do and they will ask you for your VIN about 2-3 days before your tune date. My buddy at work had his done there also and now I have 2 more co-workers that are looking to get it done as well. Make sure you are running 91 octane gas for at least 2 weeks or more before your tune because this tune requires 91 or higher only. Also let them know if you have any CEL's that way they can download the correct programs to turn them off. At the minimum you will need a cold air intake and good flowing exhaust to realize the best gains with this tune. They don't advertise it on their webpage but they also do a TCU tune that I was told was just incredible if you have an automatic transmission. Good luck whatever your decision and hope this info helps. My car was actually featured on their Facebook page last year in September. If I'm not mistaken, they were one of the first one's to supercharge a V6 Camaro using the IPF supercharger. That car was a synergy green one driven by Mike Doescher who personally tuned my car (see attached pics). Great guy, he even did a courtesy drive afterwards and showed me how the IPF power tune had transformed the performance and responsiveness of my vehicle. If anyone knows anything about V6 Camaro's it's this guy. He's worked on them, supercharged them and driven them. I attached some pictures of them tuning my car in their showroom.

What are you trying to say?

sixt3denied 02-01-2015 05:29 PM

Guys, isn't the IPF tune a (self install) tune? No dyno or anything? Plug in the module and it records your existing tune - then connect to a computer and upload it. Then it matches you up with a pre-made tune which you download to your computer & tune module - and then plug in and install on your car? IPF even has a video of a hot chick showing you the steps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFYTp0RFi60

Confused as to why many of you are stating that you got the ipf tune done at a shop - when according to the ipf video you do it yourself in about 10 minutes.

Am i missing something?
