Just read, so if you come back, i can tell you quite a bit more than those duramax boys pertaining to this particular car. I have 2, had 3, one got totaled on thursday. Is it a auto car? If it is, there are several things that you can do to liven it up.
1. Have the transmission tuned, in the computer. The car is designed to be quick smooth shifting car. This means that the computers cuts fuel on the beginning and the end of a shift. In fact, it cuts it to somewhere between 70%-75%. Tuning this out of the trans, will cut .2-.3 of a second of your quarter mile times.
2. The drive by wire on these also ramps into throttle even when you mash it. There is a company that can sell you a chip to put in to make it operate more like a pedal. Meaning it will ramp exactly like you push it. When you floor it the way that it is now, it actually takes quite a bit of time for the throttle body to respond. The performance chip will react nearly instantaneously. This will function for either a manual or auto car.
Just a couple of things to look at, i have many many more things you can do to wake these up.
