I had the ECM tune performed by Vector Motorsports a week ago and wanted to give you all a quick review.

To me, there are 3 very noticeable differences.

First (and best) is initial acceleration. When you press the gas it “jumps” immediately. There is no longer a hesitation or that bogged down feeling before it gets moving. Even someone riding with me who didn’t know I had this done noticed enough of a difference to ask me if I had something done.

Second is engine temp. (Without A/C) normally on an 80+ degree day my engine temp would run about 210-216 in stop & go traffic. I have not seen it above 206 since the retune and it regular traffic it now runs about 192.

Last is gas mileage. Since I punch the gas every chance I get, my previous high in gas mileage was less than 21 mpg but usually right at 19. Now, it never falls below 21 and is usually close to 23. To add to this: I have not changed my driving style, my average speed is identical to what it was before and I have always used 93 octane.

Big thanks to Chris and everyone at Vector!

Did you do a chip exchange or drive over to get it done?

Do you have any other mods? CAI, Headders, Exhaust?

Ballpark price?

Thanks~

I drove over to get it done. I have the factory installed GM CAI. Here is a link from the Solstice forum I used to get all the details (w/pricing & everything).
