ATS 2.0T MANUAL Trans

Post by mikel »

We are close to releasing support for the 2013-2014 ATS 2.0T and 2014 CTS 2.0T and we really need an ATS 2.0T manual in here for a couple days for calibration testing.

So far we're seeing huge gains, 50+ rwhp and 60+ ft-lbs of torque on 93 octane on an otherwise stock 2.0T Auto.

if you are local (south Florida) and interested, please feel free to post up or email me. We'll dyno tune the car, and give it back to you tuned, and then provide you with a Free inTune tuner once they are released for this application.

Thanks!

I'd just skip it. According to GM less than 3% of ATS's sold have the manual transmission. Why hold up releasing a tune for the smarter 97% just because of a few morons who can't get with the times and insist on playing with a shifter? This is the 21st Century, manual transmissions belong in the annuls of history along with manual windows, manual steering, manual brakes, manual mirrors and 8 track players. Everybody sees it besides us stupid Americans.

Its not really that surprising. Its only available with the one motor, the other 2 are automatic only. And even through the entire industry, manuals only account for 7-8% of North American sales, including cars that have no automatics available (which I'm sure jacks the number up).

Yup, I bet a big part of that 7-8% are GT500s, Z06's and EVOs, etc.
