These are in no way the opinions of injected!!! These are my opinions as a customer.
Any time you put the word "but", it technically negates everything you said prior to it.

Well how about how your first run ends before 6k making the gain look bigger than it probably really is...

Only thing we can do is wait for it to hit the market and get unbiased dyno graphs. I also raised the question why they used 87octane for the 1st pull and 93 octane for the final. Someone stated that it was because that's what the car was dropped off with. Either have the owner refill it up with 93 or run the final pull with 87. Maybe it wouldn't have made a huge difference but in testing certain variables should always remain constant.

This arguing is moot. Once tunes are out I assure you that no matter what the device they will all be within +/- 3-5hp of each other. It's the tuning options, area under the curve, and drive ability mods that will matter.

I just want a tuner soooooo bad.

First run was before the tune in forth gear, so it hit the speed limiter at 118mph in forth gear. Second run is with the tune where limiter was moved up there for able to ride forth gear to around 130mph. Not misleading, believe the same discussion took place in the injected tuning thread.

Being objective both companies did the same thing, dyno'ed in forth gear before and after tune. So can't say one is misleading and the other isn't.

That was a very reasonable response. I'm wasn't trying to argue. What I'm not a fan of or happy with is SCT. I don't like how they kept us in the dark. I really don't like how they try to discredit another company working on a tune for us and make blanket assumptions of how that company is doing their tune. When I stated that FSWERKS couldn't tune the 5spd that came in, that was fact and is on their Facebook page. Blivit and others have made a lot of assumptions about injected's tune that come off as bashing.
