This is definitely the most convincing factor for me. For 99.9% of the year, the car won't see a track and while I'd like to see some plots, I could live without having put the car on a dyno and while it's debatable whether or not I can shift faster than the thing is somewhat irrelavent because I still occasionally make mistakes, this won't; however, I will undoubtedly want more power... Come tomorrow, if I find out that I can't get a tune for the car because of this, I will be making changes to the order. :wink:

Thanks for the info. Stay-tuned for findings.

I'm highly considering doing this. After seeing your setup in action, I may need to pull the trigger - it's definitely impressive.
