assuming you have a turbo of course...

jugglethese Just a update on the 2 step. Tom sent me a tune with 2 step on. it did the same thing so i guess its a lost cause now :( Its to bad because it takes off very well at 3500rpm, no wheel spin and puts you back in the seat.
Thanks for the responses guys :)

ok so you use it like a trans brake or a torque converter with a high stall then. i was a bit baffled as to why anyone would need this. however it still sounds like a recipe for a toasted clutch or broken drivetrain components. then again i'm not a drag racer and dont mind waiting a bit for my car to spool.

now show me how to put an anti lag setup on the car and that's a different story.

focusmaniaczx3 yes. you might try to flash it back to the stock tune first and then re load the tune all together.

so this might either be a simple mistake on tom's part or your ecu might simply not like 2 step and you will have to do without or change ecus.
So when i got the sctx3 pluged in and tuning it. i click neutral rev limit in the options pick my rpm then try it again? Tom just sent me anothe tune
I hope this works because it does sound sweet :)
