Anyone done/seen/heard of any tuning available for the 3.6? I have EFI live from my Duramax and was hoping to use the extra licence i have on our new Traverse. EFI live has the 07 & 08 3.6 listed as supported with the E67 ecm. Anyone know what ECM is in the 2010's?

Thanks, Eric

Not sure about the mechanical part of this, but be careful if you reprogram these vehicles and for some reason an error occurs

I've posts on other Lamba boards about tuning the transmission for better shifting. I'm sure the same could be done for the Engine.

GM has alerted dealerships about non-factory "tuning". If you put your vehicle in for warranty work (read: engine related) and they find evidence of after-market tuning, you are 'toast'. I can't find the link right now, but I know user GeoHawk on the Acadia site linked to it or posted about it. I'll try to find specifics... but you may end up voiding your warranty (B2B or powertrain).

They probably have likewise for other GM models as well. Too bad for those tuners that are going to be all over that sweet Camaro!

This is nothing new, GM has had this stance on "tuning" for many years. And they cant void your warranty for aftermarket equiupment unless they can prove it was the fault of the aftermarket equipment that cause the failure of part/parts to be covered under warranty. IE if you have engine tuning and you throw a rod, they will most likely deny warranty... but if you have engine tuning and your back door falls off, then they will cover it no problem.

So anyhow... Has anyone seen/heard/done any tuning with this engine?

Eric ...... you are dead wrong about how warranties can
being voided ..... if there is a modification, say to the engine, and the engine fails, nothing has to be proved .... the engine was modified above and beyond the specifications of GM/ Chevrolet .

For sake of brevity i didnt go into as much detail as i should of to prevent nit picking. Magnuson-moss act... within reason, covers consumers for mods/upgrades.

Im quite aware of what will and will not void warranties... so back to my original question... Anyone seen/heard of/done any tuning on this engine?

Thanks, Eric

The only thing I've seen was on the Caddy forum with the W4M (wait 4 me) tune. Not sure if that was on a 3.6DI Caddy app or not...

A modification, with emphasis on the mechanicals of the vehicle, may and can void the vehicle warranty, in its entirety, Magnuson Moss act or not.
