A must have for Bolt Ons!
I have a 2011 2.0T R-Spec with full bolt ons. Those of you that have full bolt ons without a tune probably felt some increase in gains (like I did) prior to this tune. After this tune you will be amazed at what the car can do! I will go over the main points that I was extremely happy with.
- No rev hang!..... those with a 6 speed know exactly what I'm talking about. When the rpms hang while shifting to the next gear, pretty annoying. This tune gets rid of that!
- Perfect A/F ratios..... prior to tune my car was running on the lean side. It has perfect A/F ratios now.
-1:1 and launch control (if you have a 6 speed and get it)...... If you don't know what it is look it up on youtube, AWESOME! As for the 1:1, I noticed it right away. Shifting and acceleration was much smoother and the cars throttle did what I wanted it to do unlike before.
-The power.....Yes this is why most of you would and should buy it. There is a night and day difference between the stock pull and this. Like it says, a PULL THROUGH THE WHOLE POWERBAND. Boost goes to 20-21 psi and back off to 15-16 psi, stock 14 peak then back off to 10. I get on it at least once a day on my way to work just because I'm that impressed with it.
That being said I would recommend two things.
ONE, you're gonna need a new clutch for this power to avoid slipping. I already had a CC stage two installed.
TWO, I would recommend newer spark plugs or regapping your existing ones. I had a little bit of pinging up near red line from either my plugs being too hot or not gapped correctly. Bought some NGK 1 step colder, problem is sloved!
P.S. - I took my dad,(who has a tuned 08 Pontiac G8 6.0 and a 1987 Buick Regal Grand National), for a ride the other day and he said he felt like he had just gunned it in his cars. WHAT?!
