    Since you have the tune, how's the top end power? We keep hearing about how the power drops off which seems to be the real weak point of these engines. Does the tune keep the power coming till redline or is there still a noticeable dropoff?

    I'm not sure about that. I usually shift once it hit 6k. But never went more than 6k. I'll have to try it tomorrow and see what happen.

    The power stay stable from 3k to 6k rpm.

    Im going to another dyno day on May 2 so wait until next weekend! I wish I could get it sooner.
    The e85 tune is way more powerful trust me

    Tuning a NA engine with Tune only will yield pretty small results.

    I had a Trifecta/BNR tune in my 2011 3.6DI CTS coupe. It made a very noticeable difference in acceleration. It could get second gear rubber with the traction control turned off. I would recommend a CAI with the tune.

    I find it 91/93 tune runs much faster than E85. I will post the video when Im running 91/93 tune. I could be wrong. Im going to dyno day next weekend and I will upload the result. Probably less than 400hp.

    I have heard that without an E85 fuel sensor in line (as in flex fuel vehicles) you really don't get the benefit of the E85 tune. Our turbo cars are not set up for E85 and just a tune will not work properly. I am waiting for advise on what it takes to add this sensor.
