markgws6 Anyone that has actually installed the Hypertech tune I'm curious to hear what you think of the performance gains and whether you liked the shift firmness and shift point adjustments...

DaILLestWun I think this Hypertech tuner seems worth it. I have the world's first tuned V6 LX (Magnum, Charger, 300) from Diablosport. It didn't do much in regards to HP/TQ, but the incresed shift firmness along with a few other goodies make it well worth it.

And with these tuners you can always set it back to stock. I always do before I drop it off at the dealer just in case they flash my ECM. Haven't had any issues at all.

The LFX is an enhanced version of the LLT engine. Introduced in the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro LS, it is 20.5 pounds (9.3 kg) lighter than the LLT, due to a redesigned cylinder head and integrated exhaust manifold, and composite intake manifold. Other components like the fuel injectors, intake valves, and fuel pump have also been updated. Power and torque are up slightly from the LLT. The compression ratio is 11.5:1. The LFX rated at 323 hp produces 11 more horses than the LLT.
yeah, i was refering to the '10 and '11 V6. There will probably be even less hp on the '12 for the tuners to get out of it. They had to redesign the manifold and up the compression to get that 11 more hp. Not much gain for all the R&D that im sure they put into it.

Its not BS, you just have to understand that this is a 3.7L V6 that comes from the factory with 315+hp.......Thats amazing and the GM engineers are getting pretty much every oz of hp out of it. That does'nt leave much room for improvment. Most V8's up until the last couple years were making 300hp and that was with way more cubic inches also

CVAGIXXERRYDER I think the boosted power of the '12 v6 is due to the new header/exhaust manifold design...basically down pipes built into the heads??

markgws6 OMG Envy! I just read your thread on all of your problems with CELs and warranty work (or lack thereof) I'm sooo sorry!! I wished I'd have read that before installing my stuff it might have changed my mind quicker. lol But yeah, maybe I should just return it back to stock and hope my engine stays runnin strong while my warranty is in effect...

Envy But once you've tuned the car...it is not just an aftermarket parts issue anymore. You have accessed and changed the cars original factory calibration and even I can see why THAT would void a warranty.

markgws6 The tuning done on my car never exceeds anything the equipment is not capable of. This sounds like something that was written by their legal department. Isn't there some law someone posted stating that aftermarket "parts" alone cannot void a warranty? Alas, if I had an engine problem, I would probably not "expect" it to be covered now since I had the tune installed. But if I had a TPMS or a brake problem you better believe I would expect them to fix it.
