    I did it- definitely seems more agressive and more fun to drive. Unfortunately I have not dyno'd... Getting ready to try the transmission tune as well.

    please share your thoughts when you do the trans tune. I'm very interested in hearing your thoughts.

    Thanks

    Re: 3.0 tunes

    Go ahead and chuckle at my little 3.0L. It reminds me of the story of the young sailor who hired a lady of the evening in a far away port. When she saw him undress she asked "who do you think your going to please with that!" "Me!" he replied with a big smile...

    I got a deal I couldn't refuse on this CTS4 Thunder Gray Cromaflair. I tinted the windows, blacked out rims with red caliper covers. Reading this forum I purchased the RX catchcan and clean-side seperator. Couldn't resist a CAI and found CTSV mufflers so it can breathe. I figured I'd come this far so I went with the throttle controller, as well as KPE engine & trans tune. And, I'm still into it waay under the value of the car (2013 with 2K miles).

    I'll never race anyone, I use it as my daily driver- yet everytime I look at it I smile, every time I drive it, it is a dream come true. I sold my late-model Mustang and I'm not looking back.

    If I do ever dyno it, I'll post numbers- but as we all know, it will not ever be a 3.6L (and that is fine with me).
