    One of the discussions to come up in recent times in the ATS-V market is with regard to a feature called “Lean Cruise”.  This article is meant to explain our position on it, why we won't be offering it, and why the ATS-V engine can neither take advantage of it nor needs it.

    In recent years, we've taken to pushing the boundaries on what's possible with factory part swaps on the Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Sonic.  The ultimate dream of most Sonic owner-enthusiasts is to make their cars into the legitimate hot hatch that Chevrolet never built.  To us, a hot hatch is four things:  all wheel drive (AWD), lots of power, manual transmission, and exceptional handling.  This article is about how we're tackling the AWD challenge.

    The “Gen 1” 1.4L turbocharged engine (RPO:LUJ or LUV) can have some spectacular power gains from upgrading the OE turbocharger wastegate actuator, when combined with proper tuning!  This article goes into how boost control works on these engines (and turbocharged engines in general) and discusses the observed power gains from upgrading the OE wastegate actuator with a high quality aftermarket actuator.

    Certain models of the 2011-2017 Buick Regal vehicles are equipped with additional mode buttons – one is labeled “GS” and the other is labeled “Sport”.  Depending on the features of the vehicle, these buttons may change the way the suspension operates, the way the accelerator pedal responds, and/or the way the automatic transmission shifts.

    We've been fans of the Buick Regal ever since the days of the Grand National.  We were thrilled when, later, it was reintroduced in 2011 as a performance-oriented family sedan - it was on this platform that we established ourselves as the premier tuner for the Regal!  It is an honor to continue that legacy by yet again extracting more power and performance out of the NEW 6th Generation Regal!

    Thus, we proudly present our calibration for the 2018--Present Buick Regal Sportback, Avenir, and TourX, equipped with the 2.0L Turbo (LTG) engine!
