Over on Solstice forum, Moms said that Gm was building up the stock or something like that.....Sorry, too lazy to go find it again. I was led to believe she was refering to the sensors. Over at the HHR forum, a guy from a Chevy dealer posted an email he got from GM Parts saying "2 months", and it was dated mid September.

I'm just the messenger, and have no info myself....

I think the CARB cert stuff proves that there is a tune. As for performance numbers and a timetable, most of that is mostly speculation. However I am hoping the rumor that the manuals will be getting 315 hp/310 torque is true.

Living in the North and given that it is already mid-October, I will probably be waiting until the Spring to buy this tune anyway. So at this point the exact release date doesn't matter so much to me.

I'm thinking the same thing...getting ready to put "her" away for the winter. Spring fever will set in and then the tune will be that much more exciting

Is it real or is it Memorex?

My gf called the Saturn dealer near me to ask about the ECM tune for my '08 RL MT; the part number (posted somewhere here) didn't work, but the guy went on about how he thought they'd have to send out the ECM etc. etc. as if he had heard all about it.

Methinks that's some sort of admission it is real....one can hope...

LOL The last thing I want is some dealer tech pulling the ECM out of the car. That is how things get broken.

When I spoke to the parts guy at my Pontiac dealership, he said that the "kit" comes with a certificate with a code than enables them to download the tune off of a GM website and load it onto your car. No need to remove the ECM from your car - they just plug a tool into your OBD port and download the tune onto the ECM.

That's the number circulating for the new upgrade. 315/310 for the manuals and 290/290(?) for the automatics. I think they're afraid the auto transmission can't handle the power, but I'm certain I'm over 290 crank and driving fine (maybe not warranteeable though). Those numbers are crank numbers not wheel numbers though. There are several folks doing 330+ crank but again without warranty.

Yep, that's how they did the Stage 2 install for my Ion Red Line. You will also have a unique number should ANY work on the ECM be required that the tech will have to call in for authorization.

Ask Don Knowles or Bill Ziegler if there is a tune .... ask PhoenixPerformance Racing if they have worked with any of the GM Performance engineers.

Just because it hasn't come about yet doesn't mean it does NOT exist. There ARE legalities that MUST be met (thanks California and CARB)

Well, thats a number someone found on an HHR website where they were discussing the tune. Since the HHR has the same engine as the Redline and GXP, some are wondering if the rumor is true and if the numbers would be the same for our cars.

All of the rumors that I have heard of through the Solstice/Sky communities have said 290 hp/310 torque, with no differentiation between manual and automatic transmissions.
