I think you have me mixed up with diesel but my fan is kicking on more but that could easily come from the way I'm driving it now..

That was me. BTW, I didn't use the tuner to datalog... I'm not sure if it has that functionality or not... I used the Torque Pro App on my phone and a Bluetooth OBD2 connector.

What are you going to be using for data-logging? I like looking at data

This seems to be the case, but of course it is in the 90s here right now. I am going to try the lower thermostat to see if that makes any difference.

It also fits in the center console both lengthways and sideways.

I just filled up with 93 again and should be good to go. I just loaded the 93 tune on my break and I will try it out on the way home today and while doing some school visits here in town.

The 87 tune is not going to show any huge gains at the top end right now (but they are still fiddling with everything and if you knew the sheer number of parameters they have to deal with you would be amazed they are even trying all of this), but the greatest gains so far are with drivability and area under the curve. The car is much more responsive and a joy to drive. Smoother too.

I can't wait to see what the 93 tune brings since they are telling me that I will see a pretty good difference.

And before anyone says that SCT got a 17hp gain on their tune, remember that their car was modified (mine is too) and their baseline was with 87 octane. The tune dyno was with 93 and they revved the engine out beyond the cut off for their baseline. I know _RED_ himself is being realistic about all of it and so should we. Both companies are doing good work we should be happy about. Compare apples to apples guys. Besides, like I have said before: different car, different dyno, different day. You cannot race a dyno sheet...

Thats cool to see that the test units are out, once you get throw the first tank of 93 and it settles in you will see the gains, but getting rid of the throttle delay is noticeable right of the bat. I cant wait to see your response once they are able to tune the DCT and change the shift pressures and points.
