So if 270hp was only making 150 at the wheels.. Wouldnt that mean that 287 at the wheels translates to over 400 at the crank? You said the tune for sale gives you 330 hp.. Was this dyno run on ethanol? Is that why it was so high?
Very impressive output numbers; l am definitely considering purchasing this type of tune. Am curious how this affects the GM powertrain warranty and the yearly emissions testing that is required in Northern Virginia? Also, is it possible to leave the Sport mode "as is" (more aggressive suspension / steering / automatic shifting but with stock power) and add a separate Max mode (which would be Sport mode + higher power / torque + even heavier steering than Sport)? Also, please describe your tunes affect on throttle response & fuel economy. Thanks for your consideration.
This was also on an awd vehicle with greater drive train loss. Rear wheel drive will have higher final numbers!!!
Ok great! Very impressive numbers! And this is without supporting mods like intake, exhaust, intercooler etc.. Right?
Very impressive gains.
Could the tune be transferred to another ATS? For example, if the current car (one with the tune) gets traded in or lease expires and another ATS is purchased, could the tune be used on that car also or would another tune need to be purchased?
Very impressive. Although I am curious if in stock form, whether the sport mode already makes more power than the tour mode, since you are comparing before and after in two different modes, not in the same mode.Originally Posted by BNRacing
Can you post the dyno chart? I noticed the tune changed the power pattern a lot, not just the peak output. The power curves are smoother, TQ curve is flatter throughout the band, and HP goes up all the way to near redline, though difficult to pinpoint with the video.
The tune seems to turn the 2.0L F/I engine into a higher powered 4.0L N/A engine
Since it was run in manual mode, how does the tune work in auto sport mode? I am curious if the tune also changes throttle response and holds the gears even longer.

Any provision for summer tune vs winter tune? It doesn't get that warm up here in the D in the summer but our Texas friends may need it.
No, sport mode doesnt make more power (stock). That's a feature we added to the tune (select-a-tune). The car may perform even better in auto sport mode because the TCC lockup strategy is different than in manual mode (no TCC lock in auto sport mode until 3rd gear, but TCC locks in 2nd at WOT in manual mode). Our tune does increase throttle response and we did extend the shift RPM with our tune.
slightly off topic but I'm curious what the difference is between this Caddy 2.0 Turbo & the Buick GS 2.0 Turbo.
Trifecta tuned that one too but got nowhere near the results from what I could tell....
I would like to get the tune, but i have a few questions.
1. I am planning on getting a custom exhaust made, should i wait to get the tune until after i get the exhaust done?
2. Since the tune requires the EZflash cable thing, if i don't buy it and rent it from you(BNRacing) if i need work done on the vehicle, do i need to remove the tune prior to taking it to the dealer for any service/maintanence?
