DCT shifts post tuning (video)

Thought I'd share a short video I made tonight with my Galaxy Note 3 on the improvement of the DCT post tuning. I never really got to experience the Injected tune on my last DCT before it took a dump on me. I've been running the 93 octane tune for the last 2 weeks engine only while Aric worked on the DCT portion. Received the files today and did the easy break in for the TCM to calibrate this short 1/2 throttle pull was right after the 15 mile mark post loading. Also tried a full throttle dig into 2nd and man do I need the efocus rmm, the engine banged from the speed of the shift just like the manual did. I also made this video as I had a hard time finding any on post tuned focus period. Anways.......enjoy.

Nice video. Off topic but I noticed on your center screen that you had a L instead of S. Do you not have the select shift dct? I thought that was the only way they came on the '14.

Mine has L. The SS came on some upper trim packages, the Appearance package I believe. And the Ti cars.

as he said, its standard on the Titanium but only certain packages of the SE have it. I actually have a new package for 2014 which has the usual 16" wheels but they have a gunmetal paint and a polish lip on them, i also have 4 wheel disc's moonroof, sport interior w/ leather wrapped steering wheel, fog lights, and spoiler. basically i have everything the sport pack comes with aside the 17" wheels and select shift.

Okay makes sense. I have the 201A package so that would explain why i have the SS then.

I don't know what the hell Ford was thinking. My DCT is now worse than a slushbox.
This is...interesting

Can The DCT be tuned not to auto shift in S mode. I do a AutoX and I would like it to stay in 2nd with out shifting to 3. All I would like is it to shift when I want it to and not when it wants to.
Thanks

Got my DCT tune. Gave it a bit to teach in. Did a full throttle 1-2-3 run. Red line is moved to about 7k. Shifts are super fast, scary hard. Don't want to do that very often! Other than that, very nice.
