    Comparing mine to my wifes...

    Her TCM program coasts as much as possible for max mileage & it does help.

    Mine holds in a gear with clutch engaged so that even at low speeds I can lift my right foot and slow down. Mileage sucks but it's a great driving experience.

    Report details of your 'tune'.

    If you had a new Cadillac that shifted like that you'd be jumping up and down like a jackrabbit at the dealers.

    @ Echas3
    I told the guy what i wanted.
    1:I had him move all the values in sport mode to normal mode
    2: Had him increase sport mode by 30%
    3: He found the tables for manual mode and increased by 60%
    4: I had him remove ALL torque management.
    5: I had him shorten up the time between gears ie making the time from releasing one gear to engaging another faster.
    I think he said it was .35 to .55 seconds in all modes, i had him put everything to .25 seconds.
    You should get your returned!!

    @1badcadSTS

    My car is a 2006 V8 STS4.
    I found this guy by accident. I started calling random tuners off the internet. When i talked to him, he said funny because i am in the development stage of cracking the PC's and told me to check with him in six months. Sooo i did and sure enouph he is in the testing stage. I took a gamble and paid my money for a TCM and he shipped me a TCM with the tune on it and Yesterday i put it in and went for a ride.
    I noticed everything i asked for!! Took my girlfriend and neighbor for a ride and they noticed without me telling them.
    It woke the car up!!!!

    @dkozloski

    I am jumping like a jackrabbit!!!

    And Finally
    He is a month away from testing the ECU tuning out. I might have to drive to him 15 hours so he can do some dyno tuning with the ECU.
    This is all bata testing. Im not sure if he is ready to start selling yet. He does do tuning on other cars.

    I like my tune. I'm glad you like yours.

    I think a lot of members will have interest; probably ECM more than TCM. Cadillac offered a lot of different TCM versions, just no way ti revert to previous versions.

    That's her car. She is the frugal one in our family. I rarely drive it.

    Cool. I can't wait to he cracks the ECU. Ill get rid of any other torque management. And hopefully change fuel and timing if needed.

    Camaroes are heavy. What's their V8 torque?

    I'd bet some of the V-guys are surprising the boys.

    ss vert, even if i had no governor i bet it wouldve been the same outcome, me infront for a second then him flying by. but the sts has a good topend and if you wanna be fair camaros have us by 100 horses so i say nice job for the small cubed dohc breathing v8. i dont mind kicking my car around i think its only my 9th or 10th caddy so if it tears up i'll just go get another one.
