Don't waste your money on hand held tuners. They are one size fits all. You need a good custom tune to get the most out of this car.

There are many threads here on chips, mail-order tunes, and dyno tunes. I think you'll find most quite interesting reading. The only chip I know of is from D3, but its not a "power" chip. These motors being hand-built respond differently to standard mail-order tunes. So most here would recommend you get a dyno tune. A side benefit of many dyno tuners is they can also tune the tranny which makes a huge difference for our cars.Snake Bit Super Chilled Black Raven 2006 Cadillac XLR-V aka Elwood (Jake's brother)

No, the STS-V isn't listed as a vehicle that the JET is compatible with
I'll echo Giz and say get a Dyno tune and have them also tune the trans for you
that's the best way to go
or don't tune at all... that's still better than any other option (imho)Chris Heath (RippyPartsDept) is an ASE Certified GM Parts Consultant at Rippy Automotive
