Hello folks, just wanted to introduce ourselves on here as we just signed up as sponsors after learning of this forum from a member who we tuned recently.

We do custom GM LSx based tuning, and have been for 11 years now. We also port LSx intake manifolds and throttle bodies as well as supply high flow LSx injectors, and do performance upgrades here in our air conditioned shop in he Tampa area.

Jeremy Formato is widely known as one of the best tuners for LS motors and travels through out Florida and the North East. If you have any questions, or need anything please do not hesitate to call or reply/PM here, especially on what we can do for the A6 tune. We are also sponsors on many other boards and we may be familiar to some of the vette and other GM muscle car owners on here.

Thank you

Dan

Thank you very much.

These car's are absolutely stunning, and as soon as we can- will post a video or two of the 640 rwhp, 10 second - 130 mph stunner that Jeremy just tuned.

Copy and pasting (from other sponsored boards) some great new info on the A6 tune:

Hey guys, we want to make you aware of the enhancements available now as we have been developing our A6 program since the software came out a few years ago and slowly but surely refining it. We now have the most comprehensive A6 programming available for Cadillacs, Corvettes, Camaros, G8s, and Trucks. We are able to offer a personalized transmission tune to however you desire it. For example: The normal drive mode or D can be set up so that it has crisper and less time consuming shifts, yet still be the forgiving daily driver that is most enjoyable for less aggressive driving. Then in sport mode, make it as aggressive as can be done.

This is not for only the "RACER", this is for anyone that is looking to optimize the factory tune. We have tuned 100s of A6s and had no transmission issues. We recently had 2 trans inspected after nearly 2 years running our programming and both techs said the trans looked "brand new". We keep the OEM strategy of the direct relation of throttle input to shift time and firmness; more throttle, faster and firmer shifts. Less throttle light shift pressure and longer duration shifts.



-We can now offer a tri-modal setup (for everything except trucks). The factory normal "D" or "drive" mode is slow and sloppy, on a scale of 1-10 it would be a 1. Some ****s are over 1 full second. We have found that most customers like to take it to about a 4 or 5 (on a scale of 1-10) in terms of shift firmness and shift speed and torque management. In other words a very distinct upgrade over factory: about 40% faster shifts and a mild amount of firmness at lower throttle and moderate.

-We can also make the Sport mode and the Manual mode much more aggressive; able to chirp the tires in between gears even on a completely stock vehicle. We can SAFELY cut down the shift duration to about 2-3 tenths of a second, per gear under heavy throttle without any compromise to the longevity of the trans. This would be about a 6-8 (on a scale of 1-10) depending on your personal preference. The shifts are about 60% faster and the firmness is more aggressive to much more aggressive depending on throttle position.

Recently we had a customer with a unique request that we keep the Normal "D" almost completely stock or in a "Wife Mode" but yet he wanted the full blown aggressive shifts under the "sport" mode. We were able to deliver and both husband and wife were very pleased.


For those of you that play around with the paddle shifts and are unhappy with the speed or accuracy of the shifts we have the perfect solution for you. With what we offer, you will be able to hit your shift points much quicker, without having to anticipate the rev limit to such a degree that the stock configuration is.

We have heard many complain about the Manual mode not shifting back to 1st gear in stock trim, we have fixed that issue and we can select the speed where to shift back to whichever gear. We can also cut down the duration of the downshifts as well as set about a heavier throttle threshold for gear kick down.

-We can offer any shade of gray from mild to wild and any blend in between, having different modes (sport, Manual, and Drive) is a beautifully versatile thing!

We have tuned all sorts of power levels from completely stock to aggressively ported heads with large cam strokers with superchargers.

For those that have had their vehicle tuned by others, we have seen numerous opportunities for improvement, as the shifts can be way too aggressive and shorten the life of the trans. or just minimal adjustments that are insufficient and unable to reach the full potential. We have reprogrammed many customers vehicles, and they have been much more satisfied with how in depth we go and all the options that we can provide, by custom tailoring each tune to your specific needs.

In all that we do - whether it is porting or tuning we try to go over above and beyond what is expected, to go the extra mile and can bring the most to the table with over 11 years of experience tuning and modding LSx based vehicles.

Thank you
Jeremy Formato

Welcome. What do you recommend for an Atlanta based V owner?

Welcome. What do you recommend for an Atlanta based V owner?

He'll probably suggest you make a quick run into Tampa! :thumbsup:

Jeremy, welcome aboard! Whereabouts in Tampa are you? I get down there every once in a while...

Best regards,

Hey Jeremy,

Welcome to the V forums! I've moved up to the V...but I'm keeping it stock because its faster than both my T/A and Vette were.

Members,

I can personally vouch for Jeremy's tunes. He did my heads/cammed Trans Am WS6 and my bolt-ons Corvette. He spends as much time as necessary to get the tune right. You can drive it around to see how it feels with him tuning in the car. The best part is this gives you a reason to floor it. :lildevil:

Thanks everyone, please feel free to call us at 813 476 7364 to go over anything you are looking for or are curious about.

Ryan, you would be pleasantly surprised what just a tune on that would do....

Big welcome to the forums here as well.

I heard of Jeremy from the V1 forums and have heard nothing but good things about him, like, he's one of the best LS tuners out there.

Unfortunately, he's East Coast, which doesn't help us on the West Coast! :)

Thank you...but it's only a 3000 or so mile drive :-)
