Quite skeptical about the progress of the Stage 2 tune.
Writing software and making sure it doesn't blow up your engine and also meets customer expectations is not an easy task.

This isn't like a video game. They have a goal they want to reach and they probably haven't been able to get the tune to that point yet.

Here is a link to the video -->



Nice driving.
Are you able to tell what the extra power can do for you at the track?
How many secs did it shave, etc?

I've just received my ESS flash tune.
My project is to install a Wagner fmic (already received) , ER charge pipe (ok),and the N55 midpipe (still waiting for it). I will let the car adapt to this mods and after i will do the flash tune...will see.

It seems logical that since the tune changes many of the parameters invloved in the operation of the engine you should install the mods and flash simultanously and then allow the car to adapt to the changes. To other way around seems like a waste of time. Of course, I'm no expert.....

I have not tried Stage II yet as it will require hardware upgrades as far as I know. I don't want to upgrade any hardware at this point, but contact ESS directly if you are interested in Stage II.

Thanks! This car is a little beast on the track. I did not track the 1M prior to my tune and suspension mods, so I'm not sure how much improvement it added, however I know for a fact that the ESS Tune provided added HP and TQ that you can feel in everyday driving!
