You'd have better results asking in the LFX-specific forum but it sounds like there's a handful of choices. Trifecta does seem to be the popular one.

This may be a borderline dumb question, but has their been any long term reliability concerns with a tuned LFX? I know tunes for LS V8's have been around a long time, I myself have a tuned 5.3L swapped into a '93 C1500, and I haven't seen any ill effects from a reputable tune. It just seems to me that the LFX is already pushing pretty hard with its HP/cubic inch ratio. I have considered a Trifecta for my car but would hate to cause any problems on a car that has a ton of warranty left to go.

Those dyno gains are very impressive however. THIRTY horsepower with some keyboard taps? With my axle back, intake, TB, etc...that would be what, 40-45 over factory rating to the rear tires?

I am interested as well. Any advice for a person who lives in Missouri?

Also, when I take my car into be serviced - do I just set the tune back to factory settings to avoid dealership giving me warranty hassle?

BNR, please give us come clarification here.

Isn't that dyno from a Cadillac CTS and not a Camaro?

I understand both engines/ECMs are the same or very similar in the cars, but the CTS HP/TQ rating is slightly lower than the Camaro and so is its drivetrain loss.
