This is important, we'll worth a little extra money or trouble to get a tune from someone who is familiar with the platform

What they said- ecotec motors are different than a ls motor, especially when it comes to off idle running and getting a smooth idle. I would go with someone who tuned them regularly.

You could always buy hp tuners and get remote tuned by someone on here. There are a few who do tuning that know these cars quite well.

zzps pcm is a temporary tune until you can get a proper tune. It's like wearing a "one size fits all" t-shirt.
