Thats why you do custom tuning and datalogging to check and make sure the tune you have is safe and doing all it can do

The DCT part is a little firmer on the shifts , slight diff in shift pattern , the DCT I am still working on and learning on my DCT

There is no way to use L for S shifts

How about using the hill button as S mode? I read somewhere that they were functionally similar

Tom, wasn't able to find the answer in this thread, unless I skipped over it by accident. Would your custom tune be different if we were to run 87 or 93? Would you create separate tunes for each octane?

Yes there would be a

87 tune

91/93 tune would be the same tune there is no need for a 91 tune and a 93 tune in my opinion

These would be custom for your mods and the MPG tune is built into all my tuning trying to get you the best MPG even modded

Tom, will you be able to get me a 95 and 98(E20) tune??? because thats's what we're using for our focuses over here. I usually fill mine with E20, which has about 98-99 octane.

95 RON = ~89-90 AKI(US octane rating), 98 RON = 93-94 AKI (US octane rating).
