1. If you can please take a look if the 6dct shudder problem can improve? Very bad on 1 to 2, and 2 to 3rd. Sometimes 3 to 4 too.

2. P0141 CEL code always on each time I start car, can it be turned off on your end?

3. For several random times I've experienced some snap/crackle/pop from exhaust (not as dramatic as on boosted cars of course) and I have no idea when it does it nor could I replicate it at will but it does seem to happen when I accelerate and let off throttle while on highway. Can you purposely make it DO MORE? I WANT it to flutter and pop at will (ST friends mentioned fuel table being lean or rich?)

4. In Sport mode can u please turn up the DCT responsiveness to shift even quicker than it is right now?

5. In Drive mode 3rd gear almost always drops to 2nd gear too easily when making slow left and right turns... can you make it less susceptible to downshifting gears, or better yet, make all gears not to downshift so easily by themselves?

6. Is it possible to have more low end torque, will it mean sacrificing a lot of high end?

Oh THAT! Haha right. Before I start, tuning is a bit of a back and forth trial and error so don't be disappointed when things aren't corrected first try. But I haven't the time to ask Tom again yet for some updates. So far:

1:drastically improved in the first week but now starting to have a bit. Was going to ask about this again to get tweaked up.

2: Done. Not sure if it shuts off that code only or all CEL code entirely.

3: haven't noticed more crackle pop

4: haven't had enough time to try

5: seems less but still happens so will ask for more

6: haven't had much chance to try launches

To answer # 2 , I shut the codes off individually , your CEL still works for all other codes but the one listed

I just got the tuner. Do I data log first or wait for a base tune?

Second step is to check your "strategy" to E-Mail it to Tom for a base tune.

Datalogs and comments on operation/preferences are for fine tuning once the process has started.
