Re: Cadillac Engineers please help us!
Very well said.
Now, to answer some other questions, at least the way I see it. There are so many and I do mean many attributes to monitoring and controlling the N* system it would be insane to think we could engineer a better program than GM. Over all they gave us more than 1 HP per CI in a highly drivable and reliable engine. Not to mention it's completely smooth and totally silent when running. That's a huge accomplishment in itself.

Yeah, stuff like that, which most of us would never in a million years think about. So what's happened over time is we tune the things we know as hot rodders, like fuel trim, increase airflow, etc. But GM was one or several steps ahead of us in protecting the engine and drivetrain from self destruction.
There's way to much time and effort involved in tuning such a system for such a small audience. I'm afraid to say that I don't think it will ever happen. I don't think you'll ever see a real tuned N* in a street car.
