This product is a performance tune to suit the VE & VF 6.2L LS3 V8 series of cars including Commodore and Calais models. Unlike some others available on the market, this tune has been developed using data collected from numerous dyno and street tunes that we have performed to provide a significant power increase for these engines.
The tune is provided to you via a miniature programming device we send to you in the mail which once the process is complete you return to us for a refund of the required deposit (see below). Alternatively you may keep the programming device to enable you to switch between standard and performance tunes with ease. Other options include sending us your ECM for us to re-program or purchasing a replacement ECM from us.
Huge Power Increase!
When used in conjunction with a good exhaust system, typical power output that can be expected is between 275-300kw at the wheels with significantly increased torque across the rev range. This equals over 385kw at the engine. The results are achieved through the recalibration of both ignition timing and fuel mapping. The end result is a greatly noticeable performance increase that pushes you back in your seat and reduces acceleration times greatly. Fuel economy should not be affected through the use of this recalibration and in some circumstances an improvement in fuel economy can be seen.
Tuned For Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF).
This tune has been set up for MAF operation which enables you to keep your air flow sensor (MAF sensor). If you wish to purchase a performance tune to remove your MAF sensor please see our other items for a Mafless Tune (recommended when running an OTR/Over The Radiator Intake).
Customised For Your Car!
When you purchase a tune from us we first discuss what modifications your car has and modify our base tune to best suit your vehicle. This increases performance and reduces the risk of damaging your vehicle. When using the handheld programming device we can also further adjust your tune based on log files you send to us via e-mail.
Optional Automatic Transmission Tune.
For an additional $100 a tune can be provided for the vehicles Transmission Control Module (TCM). The performance is noticeably increased by raising the RPM at which the transmission shifts at keeping the engine in its optimal HP range for longer. Through increased shift pressures we have improved transmission shift time & firmness therefore improving the performance and feel of the vehicle.
Dyno Tuning & Installation Service
If you require dyno tuning for increased performance or for a heavily modified vehicle we can provide this for an additional cost. We can also offer installation of our off the shelf tunes for an additional fee (Sydney based workshop). Please contact us at for more information.
A deposit of $650 must be made on top of the final price to ensure the safe return of the supplied programming device. Once this is returned the $650 will be refunded. You can choose to keep the programmer if you wish although the $650 will not be refunded. The $650 deposit is available from our other items.
When running these high performance tunes we recommend you try run a minimum of 95 Octane Premium Unleaded and where possible 98 Octane. Although it is safe to run standard 91 Octane unleaded if other alternatives are not available, it is advised that you should avoid heavy acceleration to protect your engine.
