WTB Red Line with manual trans

Hi,
I'm new to the forum and currently drive a 2010 Camaro, but I always wanted a Sky Red Line, preferably red, with red/black interior.
I think it's one of the most beautiful cars on the road.
I also want to find out about HP upgrades like the GMPP software upgrade for 290HP. Is that still available?
Thanks,
GK

i have a 2008 sky redline with a custom hp tuners reflash by byt tune, dejon intake, and custom single tip exhaust making 285 whp and 325 torque. With the 20% loss from the flywheel to the wheels, my car makes around 356 at the fly, compared to the gmpp 290 at the fly.

I have a 09 Red Redline all black interior 5 speed with just over 32K on it, no mods. Would be willing to sell for the right price. Yes you can still get the GMPP tune.

That's a rare combination, as it was only available as a $500 customer-order only (dealers couldn't order lot-stock cars like this) option in the U.S. It's a fantastic combo though, and it's how I ordered my Sky.

Your custom center console cover is a great touch which tops off a beautiful interior!

Alex, a 15-18% figure is most often used on these cars so you probably have more like 335 BHP if you dynoed at 285whp (although as we all know, dyno numbers vary hugely anyway, so....)

Not sure you could get to 350+ just on a tune without changing out (or modifying) the turbo unit anyway.

No, the Kappas show significantly higher drive line losses than the Cobalts, and although the tunes with alcohol added fuel will indeed produce much higher power, I didn't see that you were running that fuel. Be happy with whatever you have and don't get sidetracked about claiming specific numbers - unless you have actual dyno plts for the car as well as the make of the dyno, they don't relate to much anyway.
