    Don't forget that by letting the exhaust flow better doesn't do much without more air going in.
    Every once in a while are you taking the car out for a good run, especially if you are a daily driver in traffic for the most part, quality fuel with 89 octane is a must as well.

    I believe the Diablo Sport Trinity Tuner is compatible with the 2012 5.7L, just do the 91 "canned tune". It made a big difference on my 2010.

    5.7

    Sorry for the lack of information. Its a 5.7 . The car is a 2015 but the control panel only went as new as 2012. I have read some numbers that the cold air intake is not worth much but sound. Very disappointed with the performance. Great looking car but what happened to the go ? I think I ran a 14 .4 in the quarter in the hot summer months. Its great on gas for a daily driver but if I keep this car past its warranty .... I guess I should have bought the scat pack. The diablo tuner only works on 2015 if you combine it with (ECM ) ? I may have that term wrong. Bottom line is I would be happy with the car If I could get another 75 to 100 horse without voiding the warranty.
    Sorry for the long babble. 93 octane always.

    14.4 sec. is "in the ballpark" for a stock 5.7. I have seen better times, however. How is your launch? Are you getting a lot of wheel spin?

    In order to get 100 more horses, you will have to install a supercharger or nitrous system. Simple bolts-ons or a tune will not get you there. You should have bought a new or used 392 if this is the amount of power you want.

    Anyone have experience with the 3.6? Looking at adding a HC airbox and a higher flow cat back then doing a tune?

    Tom , the launch was terrible. I hadn't realized traction control was taking away power from the engine. The car was packed up with a weekends trip supplies and girlfriend in the car. Guess I could try leaving her home ! Wow , big bucks to make these things go.

    Traction control off, empty the trunk including the spare, less than 1/4 tank of fuel.
    I ran a 14.0 with an actual elevation of approx. 3200 ft. bone stock, no mods at all.

    Thanks Drt , To and others ! I will try that in the spring . Our local track is at sea level. I am having trouble with my launches on the street or track , leaving the tire behind. Manual trans. I think If I could get it into the high thirteen's I may be satisfied for a while. Just odd I don't know which rice burner is going to make me look silly !
    Maybe I should leave it mostly stock till the warranty is up ....... Trade for scat Pack.

    Lots of practice to get the launch down to a science is what is needed.
