    HP Tuners is in the works for the ATS for anyone interested in doing your own tuning.

    Am I the only 3.6L owner who bought the BNR tune?

    If so, it ROCKS!!! If you own an ATS 3.6L and are thinking of tuning your car, just do it. It's seriously great.

    I had their tune for my 2011 CTS Coupe. I think it brought the engine alive, and was very satisfied with the results.

    What improvements have you noticed? Any effect on gas mileage?

    Must you have a PC to load this tune, and will it also work from a Mac?

    If you drive normally, you'll actually pick up about 1 MPG in the city. Highway MPG (driving about 80 MPH) are the same from what I see.

    From a stop, the torque management is gone, which I really love. The car responds much better. Transmission downshift time is much improved, so you accelerate right away if you desire from a roll. I have the transmission tuned so that I feel it shift, not the molasses type shifting the car does stock. Overall I'd highly recommend the tune.

    Is it really fun to beat on a family hauler that may be capable of taking a twisty or two once in awhile. Just asking here guys, no insult intended. I have owned at least 10 Corvettes and
    still drive a high hp C6. No way in h**l are you ever going to tune an ATS to ever get close to me. A CTS-V, sure, but not some 4 banger with or without forced induction. I know about
    driving high hp, but like I said, why not start out with higher hp. Higher hp cars are not that much more expensive than an ATS. And yes, I recognize the need for a 4 door car, but at least
    start out with one that has balls to begin with...okay, flame me if you like!
    Why would you ever drive a Vette to go fast when you could get a Veyron and go so much faster?
