heheh. keep us posted..
Hey Dale...just seeing if there are any advances on the SIDI tune...any hints on numbers yet? Will you be able to change shift points etc as part of the SIDI tune?
still working on it,.. if someone had a car and could pop in for a hour it would make like easier.. ill be more than willing to tank this person with a great deal...
Yeah Dale I'd be keen but would have to come from Canberra and I guess a local car would be better? But if you are confident it would be OK for a day turn around let me know and I'll ring ya to organise.
For those technicaly minded this is interesting. Don't know if I misread this but sounds like this guy has pulled down a SIDI engine and is rebuilding it to throw in his ALFA to race.

I'm pretty sure that Holden is selling versions of this engine to alfa. Unless i've read something else and confused it...
yeh local car would be better only need one for half hour if anyones around!
manual 3.6 SIDI ready to go.. auto still working on
Any figures Dale?
More importantly how is it to drive? Big gains in the midrange??
confirmed, have both the omega's sidi 3.0L and sv6 3.6L Sidi at work .... (AVIS car rental) omegas have one exhaust port per head. sv6's have 3 per head.
the 3.0L is 190Kw from memory.... 3.6L is 210Kw. and there is a rumour that the series 2 is 225Kw,,, can anyone confirm this?
The exhaust on the SV6 is probably as good as you are ever going to get. it is a mandrel bent stainless steel exhuast.... Why would you change it. I'd love to supercharge one of these motors.
a VZ alloytec can make around 440Kw supercharged, but the ve series motor's only do 310kw according to CAPA's latest magazine ads. any reason for this?
Please do keep us updated on any additional information for a tune on the SIDI, i have the 3.6L, apparently there are businesses willing to experiment only with the 3.0Ls (omegas etc) for the time being!
I can't wait to do my exhaust, tune and air intake,
they go pretty good in my opinion!
So VCM/ Hp Tuners have finally released it?
Please keep us updated.
VCM have nothing to do with my software.. we are the only shop in AUS that can custom tune the 08-11 v6's
SIDI gains are in line with the previous models of 20rwhp gains in the top end..
EFI live and HPT will both support the 3L SIDI engine shortly as the PCM in that model is the same as the new range of V8s use.
neither will support the bosch controller in the 08-10 and SIDI 3.6L engines any time soon! LOL
Holden isn't but GM is under it's "Global platform" endeavour.
Ok...so about 15rwkw. So guys does that mean 15rwkw without CAI and exhaust mods? (now for some wishful speculation) If so could you hope for a further 15 or so with these mods? Giving a total gain of possibly 30rwkw? That would be nice....approximately 190kw at the rears? What sort of torque gain might this equate to? All these questions...where's an oracle when you need one
15rwkw up on a car with exhaust and intake mods.. havent dynoed a stock one yet
I have a stock auto ute, im about an hour away from you guys
A 15rwkw gain is nice but what about the twist? What was the number on this?
