    Free Performance Tune from Bad News Racing

    We'd like to get a few guys (ATS 2.0) running our tunes that are willing to do a couple write ups on the forum, product reviews so to say. We'd be willing to give away a couple of tunes to members with high post counts or members that are respected on the forum. Let us know in this thread who to give the tunes to and we'll hook them up!

    I am interested in a tune regardless if its paid or free. Have you guys had a chance to put this on a Dyno yet? If I'm correct the HP/TQ figures are coming from the ECM, so are these considered crank values?

    We haven't put one on the dyno yet- these numbers are flywheel as calculated by the ECM. We're going to hop on the dyno asap but we need to find an AWD dyno since our test car is AWD

    I've got a 2.0T MT. Would love a tune (whether or not I have to pay for it). When is it expected to be released? Have had the car for two months and I can't wait to get my hands on one.

    I will be working with Shawn and the guys at Lethal Racing here in Lafayette to put some baseline runs on the Dyno prior to getting a tune. The hard part is deciding on which tune to get. With all of the action between the two recently has left me with a dilemma. Trifecta or IPF?

    IPF doesn't have any way to data log so they can't adjust your tune unless you tell them what you want changed. Trifecta software can create data logs that you send in to us and we adjust your tune based on what we see

    Well I neither have a high post count nor am I respected in the community but I'll throw my hat in the ring.

    I have written reviews and even been a forum moderator on other boards. I was a member of the Miata community for many years and understand how important user reviews can be to a company that deals in aftermarket products.

    I do promise to be honest and fair.

    PS 2.0 turbo, manual

    Ahh the thread is back....I was under the impression that the select-a-tune was via the mode button.
    Tour=Stock tune
    Sport=trifecta
    Snow=stock tune
    ???

    It would be via cruise control as far as I know. I talked with Trifecta today about it and they aren't 100% on that yet with how they will do it.


    We did discuss another feature exclusive to Trifecta though- Smart Octane will come standard on all ATS 2.0 tunes. It will adjust boost and timing on the fly for whatever fuel grade you decide to run, and it's been extensively tested with 87-93 octanes over the last couple of weeks. We've got it showing 0 knock on 87 octane, but the power level drops to near stock. Would be great for road trips though, you can run regular and save some cash.

    Sine the tune will have octane adjust on the fly, is there plan to tune for racing fuel, or for higher octane than 93?
