Jeff, Feel free to drop me an email with your serial number and I will have this feature enabled for you.The only "miss" by 5 Star? I selected the option to leave stop/start enabled and it is disabled in my tune. Not a big deal. I'm sure they'd send me new tunes if I asked, but I don't really care that much. Just figured I'd mention it here since this post is sort of a review of the product.
Fair assessment Hack_Actual. Had a heavy travel schedule lately and between it and developing new products have not paid all threads the attention deserved. We will be happy to respond to any and all questions.Is @5startuning ever going to respond? Personally, I don't think it bodes well when the same questions are being asked and there has been zero response. I understand a company gets busy, however, if you have the time to make a thread to sell your product, you ought to have the time to respond to questions that are posted therein.
If using an SCT device and the swpn was submitted prior to shipment the device will come preloaded. When flashing it will save the stock file into the interal memory.Got my setup today...super quick turnaround! Got a question...it says "we need your stock tune for your custom tune."
Since my device should be pre-loaded with tunes all i should need to do is backup the stock tune on the device and load whatever tune i want?
"Economy testing completed this morningYes, would like to see economy numbers.
Hi Peter,I see the performance numbers and that's pretty sweet.
I see a lot of mentioning of economy improvements. Can you share any benchmarks?
What is the lone ranger tune?
That is spot on, Jeff!I'd be interested in seeing performance numbers on the "lone ranger" tune myself, but all I have been able to find about it is that it is an adaptive-octane tune (87-93). It sounds like a "set it and forget it" tune with some benefits but likely not the same level of performance as the dedicated 93 Octane performance tune.
Most of the shifting adjustments that are noticed are in the auto-shifting modes. With the manual shifting on these, firmness can be adjusted and if you end up with a tuner and it is not as "aggressive" or responsive ( or it is too much ), just let us know. We are happy to work with you on revisions.I'm about to jump on this but have a question for @5startuning . Can you describe how the tuning affects the transmission shifting characteristics? I'm generally happy with the transmission performance, but there is one area where I find it a little lacking. When manually shifting through gears in S mode, for example when descending mountain roads, the transmission responds quite a bit more slowly than in any other vehicle I've driven. I can partially compensate by anticipating my shifts by a few seconds, but it is a bit annoying. Will tuning change this? Does the tuning just change the shift points during auto-shifting, or does it actually change the shift characteristic of individual shifts themselves?
Give us a call and mention the group buy, or just ask for Aaron. We can work out some type of discount for email tunes as well.
