    Default Anyone Tune a GM 3.6 VVT V6?

    Wife bought a 2008 Saturn Vue with a 3.6 VVT V6. Has anyone wrote any tunes for this engine yet? Anyone have a stock tune for a Saturn Outland, GMC Arcadia or Buick Enclave they want to share? The Vue puts out 257hp and 248 ft/lbs of torque stock while the bigger vehicles with the same engine are tuned to 275 hp.

    Thanks,

    Did an 07 Buick Enclave with the same motor.
    There is potential to improve for sure. I'll see if I can find the original and modified tunes on the laptop, either way, the vehicle did drive much better which is not me bragging, it was just tuned very conservative and soft, we only did one flash with some timing, fuel and torque changes and that was it, no cam phasing mods at all, though that would have been interesting.
    The TCM was untouched but that needed help too, the horrible mode where they change down a gear coasting down hill (without fuel cutoff) would have to go if it were mine.

    Have you read the tune from it yet?

    Cheers,
    Ross

    P.S, we have an IdahoRob on here already, now a BoiseRob!!

    Well, I can't find the tuned file from the Enclave, but, the trick was to enable PE mode (the timer was at 10 seconds or something like that), the timing wasn't too bad for low octane fuel, also reducing the torque reduction helped.
