1 Answer

For the power lag, you have delayed throttle response, I had that on my 2012 GT and on 2014 Camaro SS, the solution is easy, get a performance chip tuner, I got the BAMA 91 OCT tune on my GT and I specifically requested from them to include an improved throttle response tune....never had any issues ever since.
