The majority of Chevrolet Volt owners aren’t interested in extracting more performance out of the little plug-in EV. If they wanted a fast car, they would have bought a Camaro or something of the sort, but there’s always a few outliers.
We’d consider GM-Volt.com poster sja177 an outlier. He was hoping to make his Volt a little faster, so he contacted Wait4Me Performance and inquired about a performance enhancing tune for the Volt. After it was applied, he claimed to be “burning rubber,” in his Volt from a standstill, completing 0-60 mph sprints in 7.5 seconds and skipping the tires through to 30 mph.
He says the tune is not “earth shattering,” but is a good deal for the money and makes his Volt “a little more fun to drive.” There are some forum members who are skeptical about his claims, and others say its simply a bad idea as the Volt’s powertrain was not designed to handle more power or performance. Personally, we think the idea of a faster Volt is pretty cool, so long as his claims are true.
