im not sure a combinaton of things i think. my computer was giving me a failure notice at the end of the install but he just bypassed that and said it was loaded okay. still in the car working on getting things right. they have been helpful. said something about giving me the first tuner protected tune. not sure what that is.

probably referring to not having to back date you file.

Hope everything works out!

I will post my setup and reviews when I'm done.

just did a quick run around to see if things worked okay. feels much smoother in low rpms from what i can tell. butt dyno hasnt kicked in yet. sounds faster as it is louder but need to get back under the car and retighten the xpipe as it is making a weird sound like maybe hitting the heat sheilds at some points in the rev range.

weird sound from my pipe continues after all the messing around under there yesterday. its actually a leak at the connection between the center section and the axle back. the stock axle back has a little crimp in it where it sticks out a little due to the clamp crushing it i think same place on each side. im gonna try and rotate the clamp so it covers that area and see if that helps. took a drive to rtc meet today so got some seat time with the new evolve tune. feels smooth still unsure of the extra power as it sounds louder hard to say without before and after dyno work. at all cruising freeway speed the mpg is up slightly but down substantially around town. ah the downside of a tuned car.

any updates? Strange, you seem to be the only one i've seen with a tune that doesn't feel any power increase

yeah have tried a second tune and it pulls harder in the upper rpm range for sure. it already did that with just the cat delete. just trying to be objective and not give an overly optimistic review until im sure. i feel like most people want it to be faster so they think it is like people who get a drop in filter and swear they fell all the extra power. its in their heads.
