I've seen a couple threads that ask this question, but can't seem to find the actual answer. On a 2011 CTS 3.6 liter with 5 wire MAF/IAT sensor, which two wires do I connect the GForce chip to?

NONE

that 'chip' is basically a legal scam

I'm gettin that impression. But has anyone installed and got feedback to share?

As a calibrator all I can tell you is that there is NO one chip that is universally applicable that can make the claims this product makes and actually work. This devise is electronically no different than the old IAT timing tricker resistor mod used on early LS motors. A few degrees of timing and reduced MAF frequency values will generate a false lean condition and will eventually be trimmed out by the fuel system monitors.

Return it while you still can!!!! It is a scam, basically, it's just a $3 resistor from RadioShack, it's makes the car think the air is always at xx degrees, which the computer will read and end up adding more fuel than what it normally would. Your car will probably throw a code. On top of your mpg going down, you won't really notice tat much of a difference if it is successful.

Get rid of that thing! Do a search on the forum if your looking for more hp. I think the vmax isolator fits your year and its reviews have been positive

Unfortunately it is true. Sad but true. Somebody should meet the seller and show him the good old 0.45 ;)
