Good point. I'm in NC and it has been 80s for awhile. As far as fuel grade for me I run 93. When I had my 2010 mustang gt tuned a 90+ day would definitely be noticeable.
Speaking of those using to torque pro, what settings do you use? I'm using 3500 lbs, 2.0l obviously, 85% ve (the default), 0 boost adjustment, faster connection, using a bluetooth dongle.
Also I don't have a delivered torque pid, is that one I need to add and how do I?
Quick update. I just flashed my update from BNR and wow. My ATS IS A MUCH DIFFERENT ANIMAL.
Off the line she rips. I punched it in 3rd gear and wheels spin. I will update tonight with some cold temps.
This was a re flash update from Treifecta. Love it.
How did you get an updated File from BMR ?
Was this part of the logging program? BNR said I was within spec so I didn't get an update. Or is this something different where they are pushing the envelope further (like a version 2) or something?
Also bottom right tach now displays what gear I'm in even in Automatic only in tune mode. 2nd gear pulls
Like a beast very strong now! First gear spins at 3/4 throttle now and street roll launch love it now! Very
Linear push wooooh!
Does the transmission behavior change any? Does the tune improve the all the slip?
Possible stupid question: why do some of you want to tune or otherwise increase hp/torque in a sedan!? Why not just buy a car with more hp if you have the need for speed! After all,
if you start out with say 250hp and add 10%, big deal, you now only have 275! What is that going to get you in the real world? Why not start out with a higher hp car to begin with?
Is it really fun to beat on a family hauler that may be capable of taking a twisty or two once in awhile. Just asking here guys, no insult intended. I have owned at least 10 Corvettes and
still drive a high hp C6. No way in h**l are you ever going to tune an ATS to ever get close to me. A CTS-V, sure, but not some 4 banger with or without forced induction. I know about
driving high hp, but like I said, why not start out with higher hp. Higher hp cars are not that much more expensive than an ATS. And yes, I recognize the need for a 4 door car, but at least
start out with one that has balls to begin with...okay, flame me if you like!
I'm gonna guess they need or want 4 doors.why do some of you want to tune or otherwise increase hp/torque in a sedan!?
I'm gonna guess virtually nobody here wants to tune for more speed. Anyone who exceeds the car's stock top speed on the road is an idiot. I can tell you don't understand the concept of wanting to improve something. Buying a car with more horsepower, more brakes, more tire, or more cup holders wouldn't change the human desire to improve it.Why not just buy a car with more hp if you have the need for speed!
Why would you want to beat on anything? And a Honda civic can generates more cornering and braking Gs than your C6 does accelerating. So basically accelerating is a bore compared to turning or stopping. I spent a lot of time on 9 and 10 second street machines that did 2.x 0-60s. Even that was a bore compared to turning or stopping.Is it really fun to beat on a family hauler that may be capable of taking a twisty or two once in awhile. Just asking here guys, no insult intended. I have owned at least 10 Corvettes and still drive a high hp C6.
I'm not going to ask why you think ANYONE would want to get close to you.No way in h**l are you ever going to tune an ATS to ever get close to me.
No thanks, would be too easy to be fun.okay, flame me if you like!
