Jose what does the car do when you're at a dead stop and mash the pedal to the floor? Also does the throttle body open fully unlike the factory tune? And is power retarded by the ecu when launching from a stop?

At a dead stop and mash the pedal, it is only a bit hesitant. Not as much as stock. I believe it does open fully but i havent tried the brake launch with this tune yet

Interesting. The Injected tune has little to no lag and spins the wheels through first and chirps second.

I have toms tune. I have chirped 2nd just not very often. I think it helps to have a stiffer RMM. I also have busted loose on a downshift once. The summer treads are usually so grippy wheel spin isn't a huge concern. I think this has to do with the level of clutch disengagment on shifts built into either tune.

I have my customers do 3rd gear because it is less abuse on the engine and it juts the job done at a lower MPH for the ones tuning on the street , safety first

Yeah but most have manual transmissions, if you go WOT in an auto it down shifts to second and in no time your doing 80+ MPH

Ive been trying to do a safe WOT for you for 3 years with little to no sucsess because of the auto transmission.

Ide love to be able to lock it into 3rd and accelerate up an onramp at WOT tiill i got it up to the speed limit but ive yet to find a way.

You dont have a MK3 or DCT

Just do the wot in second then when we get closer we will start the wot in second then short shift it to 3rd
