So for the past couple weeks i have been secretly working with MACE Engineering.
2 Days ago i received my tune in the mail!
The tune they offer changes TCM (trans) and ECM (engine)
the cable from them is made by trifecta and it works on our G8s.

So far with my tune, I can rev in Park and Neutral upto ~6200RPM and my new driving redline is at ~7000 RPM, yes thats 50MPH in 1st hehe
car runs a lot smoother now and the pick up is much better. I'm going to re-do my exhaust and send them more data logs so they can work on making a better tune.
There tune also offers a Ghost Cam so it sounds cammed via the VVT and valve phasing..

I paid about $545 shipped def. worth it for they are MASTERS with the Alloytec/SIDI 3.6 Engine. They are developing a cam set up for our engines..

^ Nice find! There arent alot of tuning options out there for the V6 folks. If you can attract enough people to MACE see if they will make you their free test dummy for future updates!

Awesome job Hazer!!!

Question: what made you go with MACE as opposed to Trifecta. Both are mail order tunes and you are even using Trifecta's cable? Trifecta has the ghost cam feature too. The price is now $260. I don't mind spending the extra money. I just want to know what I'm spending it for ;)

Thanks again for paving the way forward for us v6ers.

MACE Engineering because,
they know our engines best, They are working on cams for us, they made plenum insulators for us, they are well known in AU for their tune and Steve is just the best person ever! he walked me through everything never gave me an answer for no!
plus I'm waiting for my tune to break in, for E85 capability :)

I could say i own the World's Fastest G8 V6 :)
