GM has the code, and the ability to change it, that's all we're missing to tune it ourselves, so GM just made a tune like trifecta would since they have access to all that already

no, I am helping trifecta, not GM, but I know GM has free reign with their own code and they can come up with tunes at least very similar to how trifecta comes up with tunes, and have the code already, they just use a tech 2 to flash it instead of the GT tuner

Default Re: On the Auction Block: 2003 Saturn Ion QC/T Concept

Whatever, I would give my left nut (since I won't need it anymore) to have that car. That is mean looking. I always wondered why they just didn't supercharge/turbo the 2.2 for the R/L instead of using a 2.0. I figured it would be cheaper to keep the same application for both.
