I am actually a trifecta distributor. You can even specify how much tq management you want in each gear. A little bit is good in first gear tapering. lift it in 2nd gear and up. I am very curious on what vince will do with the ATS.
I have always owned VDubs and GM's here and there, the tuning community is so much better on the GM side of things. I still do not understand why there is not any easy available/affordable self tuning kits for VW's. The things I could do with my 2.0....
2010 CW 4 DOOR GTI: Neuspeed CB, APR Carbonio S2 Intake, NT-05's, APR V2 Software, AWE K04, APR v.2, GoodSpeed Catless DP, EuroJet FMIC 348WHP/360Ftlbs
Revo and APR are crooks. I have asked Chris from Revo numerous times why they do not provide a software backup with their 2.0T tune, and their answer is always, something to the effect that, the customer is too stupid to load their software onto the ecu. I guess we have to be stupid to be paying $600 for their software and they don't allow you to program your own car or keep a backup copy of the tune so you don't have to drive an hour to one of their dealers and be charged a shop fee. I'm sure he'll chime in here, again with the same excuse.
My feeling is that it'll be vurra interesting to see how the pricing on a Fusion 2.0 Ecoboost, with or without AWD, stacks up in comparison to the Regal Turbo and GS....because having poked around both at the Denver Auto Show, I think the Fusion is easily as nice a car as the Regal. My dad thought it looked like a $40-50k car, and while I might not go that far, the Fusion is every bit as nice as the Regal (or, for that matter, an A4 or any number of other entry-level premiumish cars). Assuming that tuning potential is similar....it could be one hell of a shootout.
Still only front wheel drive ?
Thanks anyways GM... i'll keep saving for a Z06

Buick needs to put the GS on a weight loss plan and a tuned AWD version with the 3.6L would be a better offering at 35K price tag imo. If I bought a GS in current form, I would go MT and drive it as a nice every day cruiser - not a light to light sport sedan racer.
Buick Regal GS V 1.0 is decent - now go back to the engineers and give us a better effort for V 2.0 a year or two out.
No, better - bump to 3.8L Turbo like the old days!
