    ATS 3.6 power upgrades

    You saved me a lot of wasted time and expense. There are so many adds claiming increased horsepower and performance with after market chips.
    Any advice on increasing engine power for real. I have 3.6L RWD.

    Oooh, you got an ATS! Welcome!

    For that, I'm not entirely sure. Being the ATS is a new vehicle, the aftermarket platform may not be up and running yet.

    You could go to the CTS forums and snoop around, given the CTS has used (I THINK, don't quote me) the same 3.6 for the past few years, to get an Idea.

    BNR/Trifecta has a tune for the 3.6DI. I had it in my '11 coupe before I traded it for the ATS. Get an intake and the tune and you will be happy with the results.

    We super charge, single turbo charge, or twin turbo upgrades for them.

    Our CNC ported TB is a inexpensive bolt on, stall converter for acceleration from a dig, but BNR/Trifecta tune is amazing for the $.

    Correct. Even our stall converters. Just no headers yet.

    That's excellent news! Jesus that would be the perfect powertrain if they simply offered a damn manual! *poutty face*

    The stall converter for the 6L50E improves 1/4 mile times app .3-.4 seconds on the V6, the cams are 50 rwhp avg gain NA, and heads on top of that help even more, then you have single or twin turbos and front mount SC for around 500 at the crank.

    yeah if you have an N/A engine<V8 and want a decent power upgrade just skip the bolt ons and go for boost. The amount of money you'll spend on headers, Intakes DP's tunes etc etc you could have almost had a supercharger, then you're laughing

    Forced induction. That's the only way to go. Spend thousands to save thousands.
