    I'm with you on this. KPE (Bob), I'm a huge fan! Love the intake so far and its great that you were able to deliver the dyno sheets on the intake.

    The exhaust you guys have to offer looks like it could be great, same goes w/ the software tune. But we need more (needy cadillac owners).
    Dyno sheet and video would be great. Shoot, if you cut me a sweet deal on the exhaust and/or tune, i'll make the video for you! :-D

    Yes, I'd be super interested in this as well. It seems that HP Tuners will NOT be supporting our cars as GM has changed the PCM too many times for them to keep up...

    Trifecta Performance was the only one I knew of to tune the 3.6L

    EFI Live have any coming support?

    What tuning software does this KPE tune use?

    Have been using the Trifecta for over a year now with excellent results....especially when turbo charging and super charging the 3.6 DI motors. Have to email the logs and wait for tweaks via email, but other than that excellent. No experiance with any other.

    As far as I know, Trifecta is the only company supporting the 3.6DI motors. However, HP Tuners has decided to get into the game after seeing how many tunes we've been selling. So who knows when they'll have something out, but they said it's coming.

    We are a Beta tuner for HPtuners and have 2012 capabilities, but to date Vince & Trifecta are the ones I trust. He has done all the tunes on our twin turbo 3.6 DI and were in the mid 500 HP range to date. Also does our twin turbo, single turbo, and super charged 3.6 DI tunes

    Just got tuned today by Bad News Racing using the Trifecta tune. Jerry did a great job with the tune and explaining all about it. Jerry did a quick data log, emailed it to Vince @Trifecta using his cell (Vince was waiting for it), and Vince sent an update to personalize my tune. Absolutely great response now. With traction control turned off will now chirp tires into second gear. Nice firm shifts, seems to wake up the engine. I have to say it is well worth the money. They include free updates for any upgrades I add to the car. Well done BNR and thank you Vince!

    I'm glad you're liking it! I did send you the tune and the software by the way. Not sure if you checked your email yet, but it's there waiting for you. Did you try out sport mode yet?

    This tune is for the 3.6DI engine. If that's what you have it will work for '08 model year.

    Only thing I'm concerned is that this probably would void warranty.
