Imo, the more a vendor is involved with this ats community the better chance a member will buy or use their parts. That's one reason diablosport got my business, was because Mike and nyinstaller are always on talking about their own vehicles not just what's for sale from them. My thanks to actively participating vendors, who are not just looking for a dollar but enjoy sharing their ats knowledge.
    Well done, hawk.

    Really? That's strange I've done 143 on mine 2013 2.0T and it felt like it might do more, just didn't want to push my luck. LOL

    Re: I'm pissed 138 mph

    Wait I have had my 3.6 around 140 last spring on stock tires. No tune or anything. I see a cap here of 135? Is my speedo off or something. And no this wasn't down hill. And no drugs involved.

    I forgot this was on private property

    I made a run with mine ( on a closed course ) and swear I hit about 145 on the stock tune but the tuner showed limits at 135 so idk what the real deal is. I was closing on 150 and I swore I felt it power down but I was out of track and had to slow down and that was the only chance I had to try it stock

    Re: I'm pissed 138 mph

    Some cars are limited electronically because of what the tires are rated to. Is it possible certain versions of the 3.6 are limited more than others (Premium gets summer tires and some others get All Season tires)? I think the liability of putting tires that are good to 130 and then not limiting the car to this speed would be asking for problems. Just speculation on the ATS.

    Many years ago I had a company Taurus that was limited to about 118 even though the engine could have gotten the car to a higher limit.

    Re: I'm pissed 138 mph

    a friend of mine who works for a Cadillac, dealer was offered promo tune 6 weeks ago from trifecta for his CTS V-Sport i'm guessing so the dealer and or dealer customers might have a peek.....they said they would visit him to confirm that he worked there, they never did visit..after a few emails they sent him the cable and he borrowed my laptop to do the tune only to realize they never sent him a login or code to download the tune, and now they won't return his emails....he's over it and gave up...lol

    That seems to be the norm with them. They talk a big game but are no where to be found. Idk what's up with them. I've emailed them several times with no response

    certainly NOT the case with DiabloSport, as Mike was in contact with me at all times before, during, and thus far after the tune...they are extremely accessible! and they also drive Caddys themselves so they know wtf they're doing! and they love their cars!! I'm a huge fan of DiabloSport!

    I've seen on here how involved he is and it's awesome. But I already have an hp tuner because I thought my guy was able to do it but apparently he's gonna leave me hangin and I'm looking for someone else that can tune the trans now. Otherwise I would have dealt with mike

    Re: I'm pissed 138 mph

    My buddy is a finance manager there and the funny thing to me is i'm sure they offered this to get good word of mouth at his dealership, but might have instead won themselves the opposite, we'll see if anything happens for him, i think i will tell him about diablo

    Re: I'm pissed 138 mph

    i'm now going to eat my words...trifecta came through for my buddy, so i tip my hat to them....stuff is being done to tune my buddys V-Sport....they ran into a hickup though the engine is having some issues....(issues were pre-existing...bad gas is suspected)...but they're working through it and i'm pretty sure my buddy is going to be super happy (now where he was driving and what he was doing to get that dirty, dirty, needs penicillin gas is curiosity provoking )

    on a side note i got to drive a trifecta tuned ATS 3.6, very nice...it's not crazy slap your sister over the top but it felt really nice....if i had to nitpick and this is so small it's not even a negative, just a personal preference, the tune made the throttle tip in really really sharp, car liked to chirp the tires.....i like a gradual tip in, but again thats my own tastes,...either that or i'm not used to the V6 and have gotten used to turbo lag, either way its my tastes not the car..... overall it was nice, and i swear the car sounded growlier, love that....looking forward to playing with my buddys car when done
