    Torque Gain on 2015 ATS and ATS 2014

    Since the additional torque is provided via timing and software changes (or at least thats how it reads) will owners of the 2014 be able to have the dealer upgrade their firmware on the car to also benefit from the additional torque?

    Fwiw, and based on a conversation I had with a family friend who has been a cadillac tech for years he says no way gm will release a gm performance tune for the ats. He said he remembered that after gm released a tune for the cobalt/soltice/sky/hhr ss there was an increase in powertrain warranty claims.

    I say no chance on them doing it for free and the PR of trying to charge for it would make it too much trouble to deal with it. See no benefit to GM to give it away and even then someone needs to pay the dealership for their time.

    I asked my dealer if they could do the upgrade to CTS torque specs. They said no.

    No way they will do it but I know WHY it happened. The manual transmission was upgraded for 2015 and in order to pass all the durability tests and requirements they detuned it for 2013/2014 for all transmissions.

    I thought the auto transmission held back the power since on the dyno the manuals made more power to the wheels and also gained more torque when tuned.

    The motor makes the same power in both applications, you just see less at the wheels after the auto eats some of it up.

    Sorry, what's this about the manual being upgraded for 2015?

    RPO code - ML3 6-SPEED MANUAL TREMEC TR3160 TRANSMISSION with revisions. I stand corrected.

    I thought they just updated the bushings to improve feel. Would be nice to compare the two but my dealer never has RWD/manual on the lot.

    I heard there were shifter improvements, but nothing about transmission. I'd love to find a manual 15 to compare to my 14.
