Re: Performance upgrades for 06 V6

the best bang for your buck , at least in my opinion is a Tuner like SCT or Diablosport. I am running a Diablosport Predator 93 octane performance tune and i am very happy with it

gears wont add hp or tq but the performance gain is nice, you just lose MPG (not much but a little on the highway but you get a bit in the city)

if you have an auto, got a tuner. its a whole new car with a different tune. just a warning, if you decide to run the race tune, you wont be able to go back to the other two...the shift point change alone is amazing, plus free tunes for life. great deal. if you can, maybe get the gears/tuner combo from AM and then buy a tloc too.
