I'm curious if the SuperChips tuner can be used for other tunes.
It's half the price of HP Tuners.
Since alot of us here are pretty performance oriented [Hence the forum name]
I would guess our tunes are more aggressive.

Hi Scott.   I recently purchased the Cortex for my 2007 GXP...I am impressed with the extra performance....I was wondering if and when there will be a 93 Octane tune available....

Scott how comes there's difference in gains between the solstice/hhr/cobalt when they're all using the same engine? Seems like the hhr gets the biggest gain of 60hp while the cobalt gets 40hp and the solstice gets 28hp.

Scott, what are the differences between the Cortex and the Flashpaq other than price?
Are these to be used on stock tuned cars only?
Will you develope a tune to work with the GMPP tune for the LNF turbos?

They had mine as the test vehicle and I am impressed with the results.  I had to take t back to the dealer and I was able to reflash it to standard and then reflash it to performance when I picked her up.

How about turbo'd or supercharged 2.4's?

Most of us here want power.  My car (2.4)for instance is running and intercooled Supercharger at around 14.7 lbs of boost producing around 270 hp and 280 torque at the wheels, got anything for that?

Thanks for all of the questions everyone. We will be working on becoming a suppporting vendor to this forum very soon so I hope that providing some product info will be ok at this time?

Due to the major differences in PCM's and the amount of detuning you will see quite different results between the models covered. The HHR SS was the worst of the bunch being detuned and as a result we were able to increase quite a bit out of it by just fine tuning what was already there.

Current models covered: 07-09 Solstice GXP and Sky Redline, 08-09 HHR SS, and  Cobalt SS

Here are the current options available in the product:

91 Performance
User adjustable WOT shift point adjustability
User adjustable shift firmness adjustability
Rev limiter adjustments
Speed limiter adjustments
Throttle responce and overall driveability improvement
Internet updateable
trouble code scanner built in
Advanced Data logging (free download online)
Works with most common CAI and Catback kits

The differences between the Cortex and the Flashpaq is the addition of a Powertrain warranty that is included in the Cortex model. All tuning levels and options are the same between the two products.

These products not only tune the 2.0L turbo cars but also have files for the entire GM line we cover so if you have another GM in the family that is covered you can return your car to stock at any time and tune that vehicle with the product as well.

If I missed anything please let me know.
