We're ready to start tune development for the popular 3.6 ATS and CTS models.

CTS will likely be 2010-current, and ATS is any 13-15 with the 3.6.

Anyone local and interested, please post up or email vehicles@diablosport.com and let us know!
We'll tune the vehicle for free, provide a loaner vehicles, and give you a FREE inTune once they are released.

Thanks!

Why do you think there will be gains for these 3.6s when the Camaros showed none?
I am not employed by DS & can't help you. :p

Kill the manual. Antiques belong in museums, not cars.

I've pondered the same question.
There are others offering tunes for the 3.6 Caddys and they show gains in the 20 ft/lbs, 15-20 rwhp range. We wont know for sure until we start testing, but it looks like there is some power left, maybe even in the VVt stuff.

Another issue was at the time, we had no TCM support, and all these new applications use torque limiting in the TCM so there are gains to be had there for sure.

Once the ATS/CTS is done, how hard would it be to unlock and do a tune for a Camaro? The amount of people that would love a hand held for this car would easy justify the time to do a base line "canned" tune.

Camaro uses a bunch of different PCMs, and requires some extra engineering on our part, whereas ATS/CTS 3.6 will drop right in.
