    BNR when can we expect further detail as far as Dyno sheets etc? Also what kind of mileage do people have that are using this tune? I currently have about 2k miles on my car but fear if I encounter any gremlins this may interfere with warranty coverage

    To shed some light on the reason the dyno numbers are off are b/c of 2 things.

    1. A 2nd gear dyno pull
    2. The baseline dyno wasn't on 93 octane.

    The baseline was done with a stock tune on E85 as shown on the video. The stock tune isn't optimized for E85 hence low numbers.

    So the huge gains showing b/c of a car designed to run on Gas 91-93 octane and not E85 on subsequent pulls in 2nd gear.

    The data does have some merit in the fact that on E85 with a tune in 2nd gear the car will put down some nice figures.

    If you tune it for E85 can you run other grades? Probably not as tuning for E85 would require more fuel due to less energy in the fuel. It would probably run too rich with that tune.

    Hence the low dyno #'s for the stock tune in the video. If you buy a GM flex fuel sensor and wire it up to the ECM it could be possible if the tune parameters allow for it. EFILive has done it in the Cruze turbo they get in Australia.

    I haven't personally seen an ATS tune file yet to confirm this though.

    Probably waiting to get a 3.6 TT V6 in an ATS or similar GM car to do some of my own tuning and tweaking on one. For now I'm still working on my 2004 CTS-V with a TVS 1900.

    Any updates on a dyno with 93? I would like to see the results as I live in FL and that's all I will run here.

    Good to hear. My car only has about 75 miles on it right now so by the time I hit 1000 you should have that info up. I am leaning towards buying from you based on all the information I have been reading. For Audi and VW I always used APR Tuning as they were known for all their R&D. It looks like Bad News Racing is similar.
    BNRacing and BNRacing like this.

    I may contact you early next week to discuss purchasing the tune for my car. At this point I want more power and it appears this will give me plenty.

    Make sure you note the type of dyno you use. Mustang, Dynojet, ie.

    Also it would be nice if it was done uncorrected.
