What do I win? I picked it!!!

Congratulations, can't wait to see how it performs.
What made you decide with Evolve, I'm in the midst trying to decide myself.
ESS or Evolve, PM me if you like. I'm not wanting to start a tuning war!

You win an empty black box

It took an hour to read the ECU last night. I sent it off to Evolve & I should have the new tune file soon.

My criteria were:
- improved driveability, throttle response, reduced lag
- DIY
- focus at lower rev range where most daily driving takes place
- fairly conservative tune
- not HP driven. Don't care about the dyno numbers at top end
- customer support

Evolve meets all of these. It has got great user reviews on the 1M forums Not sure if any other 1M's in Oz running Evolve as yet.

Cobb: may be another good option, but too few reviews on the 1M application. I'm sure it is a great tune.

ESS: As Sparoz & Alpine said, ESS no longer developing for the 1M. Also not many raving fans with the ESS tune... it seems to be just 'OK'

Can't believe you beat me to it! Anyway, mine is coming tomorrow. Except I will have to wait for the charger to come in as I will need to flash ESS back to stock first.

Tip: download the software from http://www.evolvetuning.us/about-us/...n-manuals.html , rather than the link provided in the box. The USB drivers would not install otherwise (at least not for me).

Who else is running Evolve on here?

Actually won't have time this weekend, but the charger is in transit as well, so might see if I can hook everything up Friday. Do you know what's the redline of the tune?

redline & speed limit removal are optional. I opted for speed limit removal, not revs though. Think the limit is 7,200RPM if you opt for it

Good to know, the extra 200 is useful for someone who's too lazy to shift <-- that's me .

I'll wake the neighbors if I start ZZZ up now

Also, not sure if battery is fully charged as ignition was on for over an hour last night copying the ECU. Don't want it to die on me while upload new file as then I'd be in a world of shit.

Will take for a drive tomorrow evening then and load it up.... can't wait

The upload is much quicker, but all those fans and errors do scare you a bit.

Happy to see more Aussie 1M's getting the Evolve treatment!

There are a few 1M's over there running Evolve tunes including Beric Lyntons 1M race car :-)
