    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.

    Welcome to the forum.

    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.

    Re: Chip

    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)
