Given they said they did not connect the up stream o2 sensor because the wires weren't long enough it sure sounds like the wideband was either not connected at all, or it was placed in the down stream position where it was useless.

This combined with the abuse did the car in.

I should have said it would run like shit. Bu you get my gyst

Given the fact that they were already abusing it, I'm not sure they would care if it was running badly until it went bang, but yeah it wouldn't be efficient, or powerful at that point.

On our test car? I think we are pretty much taped out at the moment. We've been working on loading a file into a manual car this week. I should be able to post a graph of it later today............fingers crossed

The manual car coming in today has a FS werks exhaust, and intake. He will be getting the 87 octane tune to try. Tomorrow I plan on bringing in another manual with basically the same bolt on's+upgraded rear engine mount for 93 octane tune. We will have those guys give us numbers on fuel consumption, from different gas stations, highway/city driving, and we'll even post some dyno numbers. I want our comparison's to be clear as mud.

As we get rolling on this I will try and elaborate as much as possible. If anyone has questions, feel free to throw them out.

DCT controls.... What may we look forward to having control over? Be as specific and technical as you want. I NEED to know.

Being able to control that crazy box is a huge priority for me.

How about a modified dct did you guys get one yet? And as for the stock was the tune like night and day with it as well as improving issues people on here are having and don't like on their dct?

That's a pretty broad question, and I wouldn't be the person to answer it in a technical manner. My answer is that we can control the DCT at will, and hold a gear till we desire it to shift.........up or down whenever we please. Until I get a offering out to the guys wanting moar powa, all this is just talk between 2 guys who like moar powa, that the masses get to see. I think I'm gonna get the 87/93 tunes out.........then I'm gonna start posting some youtube video's of the DCT in action.

If anyone has other idea's or ways that will help me make comparison's throw them out, and I'll try and make it happen.

Here is the only video I have of our test car. DCT, with factory air box, and exhaust. Pay no attention to the engine light illuminated
