I know our AW car with ESS has it off but, who cares TBH.
Hidden Valley is long enough - I've hit ~250km/h on the straight. It's quite good as you can trail brake into the first corner and hope you've slowed enough.

Test drive & initial impressions:
The tune is apparent immediately. This is just brutally powerful!!

The power delivery is still very linear... the climb from 2-4.5k RPMs is more rapid. It is way more responsive low down, with clear torque increase. Traction control lighting up more so,and need to be progressive with the throttle and really can't even use WOT for more than a second or two.

M-button still works. Feels like the delta power increase is right across the rev range, as if the stock curve has simply been copied and pushed up 10%.
No codes, oil @ 120, water 107, after 30 mins of hard driving.
P3 gauge reading boost of 17.75

So far so good... needs more adaption time too. Thinking that I should have added a tune sooner now. It has definitely improved the car, while retaining the smoothness of factory tune.

Great tune Evolve

That sounds good. Do they only do tunes for 1M? Anything for the 135?

Would love to see how it goes after it adapts further and some figures!

Ok, I wonder how it stacks up now compared with others out there. They have probably moved on with the 135 onto bigger and better things thanks

Woah! Is it just the stage 1 tune? Or have you got the stage 3? Peak at 17.75 sounds good. Is your oil always around 120?

Oil sat on 110 for ages, went to 120 briefly. Definitely a stage 1

Ian obviously I can't comment on the Evolve but I know the difference between our two little cars is pretty significant , mines the lesser of the two in this area of course. I can't believe you guys have done this already either hahahaha

Steve, I will be very interested in your comments coming off the ESS.....

Joe, I appreciate your drive was very brief but at least you had the feel of it I guess... I am up in the air as they say as to what to go with, will be something for sure........

Found this whilst looking at other sh1t, may be an option Ian, I like it alot, may even get one for the BSM (I really like their CF spoiler too, with the VO stripe, CRT style).

Honestly, at stage 1 before other mods it would probably be less than 5% difference so I am not sure if my butt dyno will be able to tell the difference. I hooked up my car to the charger tonight and surprised that it was less than 80% charge after only sitting there for 1 week.

+1, think it will be hard for you to tell the difference from the ESS. That said, you are getting the S2/3 aren't you?

Will see if the car can go stage 2 with just FMIC - still only 20hp difference between stage 1 and 2 so I might still not feel much from the butt dyno. I have just flashed the car back to stock so if I got a chance, I will have a drive tomorrow to re-familiarise what stock file feels like.

I think that you need DP's for the S2. Evolve do have custom tunes for various mods... sure that there is one for just an FMIC.

Did an error read after drive last night and zero errors. Drive to work today and the car is definitely adapting after 30km's now. Just way more eager to accelerate ... I SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS MONTHS AGO!
