Aggressiveness of tunes

I've noticed that after a couple of updates to fix surging issues, my car seems way down on power compared to the first (original) tune that I was sent. It's still worlds better than the stock tune though. Anyone else notice this? I was a little disappointed when I had the surging issues... But now I wish I had kept that original tune. Personally, I've decided that I'd rather have that extra 'punch' and live with the quirks. Ah well, live and learn I guess.

damn Wayne I should have went with your tune instead of that other guy. I ended up selling it since I could not resolve issues I was having with it. The new owner has no issues with it but his car is stock. Oh well like Spaceman said live and learn.

[edit] edited as to not upset the "other guy"

Wayne, I think you'll never cease to amaze me with your service!

If you would be so kind, please e-mail them to mwerth@affiliatedinc.com This is my work address and I'll be able to download them during the day. Will I be able to tell which one has the TC option VS. the one that does not? Thanks!


BTW, if you need any more info from me (for verifying who I am, etc.) before sending them out, just shoot me an e-mail at the above address. Thanks again!

Wayne's been on top of this since day 1. I got my Xcal overnight and had my updates all within hours of notifying him of an issue. If you have the means, I highly recommend puchacing from him.

Same here, nothing best the best svc. from Wayne. He even took care of a shipping issue to get my dads SCT to him for his Escape so we'd have it in time for our vacation. BTW, I can vouch for the latest tune...not one single ioda of a glitch..its 100% perfect! Also, my gas mileage on the highway was awesome...with 80mph in 6th, with some 4th gear downshifts to play around on empty stretches of road, I still managed a 29.9mph. Thats unheard of for my driving style!!

hey wayne, you should be sending everyone the tune you use on your car, it's actually the BEST i've had since all the updates, i haven't got around to trying the new 91 octane tune you gave me, but i will hopefully soon. anyways, the service wayne offers is next to none, top of the line.

Hey Wayne, will your tunes work with the Predator? The tune I have is good, but I would like to give something else a try, just for GP.

do you have a tune based on a car with CAI, 65mm TB, and ignition? Or is your tune only based on a stock car?
