That's exactly what I wanted to hear! But I need to read more positive feedback before I make the move.

Took some back roads on my way to work today. And it gets better and better. First gear goes so quick and smooth and it pulls all the way through it is perfect. Only 48 miles left on this tank then I can try out the 93 tune. And that's what I will use on the road trip Monday to test fuel mileage as well.

People, post up some videos!
How to flash, some WOT runs, take offs etc.
If y'all haven't by the time I get mine, I'll do some.

3-5% more hp throughout the range really won't show up in videos. Everything being stated is several individual small changes that give an overall good feeling to the drive post-tune.

A 25-30 hp change, or exhaust/intake noise change is tangible, and can be captured by video.

The video idea for flashing process is a good idea for those unfamiliar with the process, though.

I will make a video of the flashing process tonight! Expect it around 1130 when I get out of work! I will make a driving video too but you won't see much difference, it is all about the feel.

The flashing process is so easy I don't think a video is necessary.

This could be a placebo, but it seems that the engine and exhaust note is more sporty/aggressive post tune. Any body else experience this? I've been meaning to make a driving video and post it... maybe I will do a video of it tonight.

I actually feel the same way regarding the exhaust note, just figured it was just me.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. The intake sounds different. It sounds better, very hard to describe. And yea I will make a video of that tonight and tomorrow for everyone.

Here is one that I did a few weeks back for the snorkel-delete crowd-
YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


I snorkel and resonator deleted, 93 octane, plus tune. This is also accelerating up a relatively steep hill, so take it for what it's worth. I had shot the video for a bit of sound capture.
