I noticed right around 4000 rpm, the engine roars! Almost like how VTEC works on Honda. I eliminated the loud cold start; I didn't have the CEL light before doing the tune because I just installed the Akra Evo about 200 miles ago; the throttle response feels a lot more refined and tuned; and the impeccable service I received from Roman made it all worth it. Definitely, a mod I highly suggest doing. It really brought the v8 alive. Thanks to Roman at ESS and Johnny at JL Platte for making the whole transition worth it! Time to wait for more dry days........
Another great review! My cable comes tomorrow from IND. I will say that I was a bit confused on your posts with the E flash vs the Direct Flash. I thought they were the same thing. At this point, I'm not sure what is showing up in the morning. I'm only really interested in the result!
Congrats to both of you guys!!
