2016 Camaro 2.0L Stage 1 Tune


The stock Mitsubishi turbocharger on the LTG engine is by no means an impressive piece of equipment. We have found that a combination of a restrictive stock air intake, and turbocharger performance leave a lot lacking in the performance department compared to what we have been used to for the past 10 years on the LNF motor. In addition to a mechanical limitation, the stock tune that the car comes with is also very conservative. Often times when a driver floors the pedal and expects performance the stock tune actually opens and closes the throttle body due to the sensitivity of the stock calibration, and this results in either hesitation or inconsistent performance from pull to pull.

The RPM-Motorsports Stage 1 Tune was designed from Day 1 to eliminate the hesitation and inconsistency of the stock tune. Even before the performance potentials were realized from the tuning, that was Mission #1. The stock LTG motor, for lack of a better description, was just nowhere near as satisfying to drive as we would have expected. One would think that a motor rated at 275hp and 295tq would outperform the expectations of someone who was so used to a 260hp and 260tq motor, but it just didn’t feel quite right.

With the Stage 1 tune, not only have we corrected the hesitation at Full Throttle, but we have improved the turbochargers spool time and response at low RPMs, as well as tuned it to retain much of the improved boost at higher RPMs. If you have driven a 2016 or newer Camaro with the 2.0T you may have grinned at the 7,000 RPM stock redline, and then been let down after the poor engine got past 5,000 RPMs. The stock tune just doesn’t deliver, and leaves you wanting more. It also becomes quite apparent why the 8-Speed automatic is programmed to shift at only 5,600 RPMs unless manually overridden. The Stage 1 tune makes a much longer usable powerband, well past the 6,000 RPM mark, and with some aftermarket parts like a cold air intake, charge pipes, and more you can bet that there will be a lot more fun on excursions up to the 7,000 RPM redline.

Our tunes are delivered via our proprietary and industry leading V-Tuner network.

What makes our V-tuning network different from other tuning companies:

  • Other companies require you to mail in your cars ECM, this causes downtime for you as your car can not be driven during this process.
  • Other companies use hand-held flash devices, these devices simply force a “Canned” non-vehicle specific tune file onto your cars ECM, this is dangerous for both the ECM and vehicle and can result in a dead controller not to mention the tune you are getting is not engineered specifically for your car.

Why is our V-Tuning network the best option out there:

  • Simplicity, we mail you our V-Tuner device, you plug one end into your cars OBD2 port and it connects to your homes broadband internet…push power and our device creates a digital bridge that allows our master tuners to “Live” tune your car as if they were standing next to it!
  • We begin with your factory ECM file and Operating System, this allows us to back this up in case it is needed later and it also is safer as we are writing a file that is specific to your car.
  • NO CANNED TUNES HERE: All our tunes are specifically written for your vehicle taking into consideration your “Bolt-on” modifications as to maximize the tunes efficiency and HP/TQ.
  • We do all the work… Plug in, connect, and sit back letting us do all the work… it can’t be simpler!
  • Once finished we will email you a prepaid outbound label to send out the V-Tuner equipment. Its that simple.
