Anyone who has driven a 2009-2011 and 2012+ enough to know the difference in automatic transmissions know how much improved it is? Also, is it something that can be done to any 2009-2011 as well through a tranny tune?

Scroll down to the bottom after the text and play the video to get a feel for how the 2012 shifts. Although the article and video reference the ZL1, it is noted in a couple of spots that this improvement benefits the 2012 Corvette and CTS-V.

so it sounds like its just a tapshift improvement. I have not heard any improved 0 to 60 or 1/4 mile times on the 2012+
