Thumbsup to Velos Designwerks Tune

I jumped on the tune special Velos designwerks is having for the Diabitec research foundation. I take my hat of to you guys for a hefty discount in return for a small donation to the foundation.

I opted for the personal tuner option since I like the option of switching to stock flash when i wanted to.
First impression was that the exhaust quiet down, don't really understand why but it did. I'm running ACM exhaust with AA Race X-pipe, this thing is loud but after the tune it quiet down a bit in the lower RPM. Throttle response is improved in normal mode but in M mode it's even more noticeable. I also opted for the cold start removal which is handy since i live in an apartment complex and my car is parked right in front of the window of the board president. Theres definately more power throughout the entire rev band but down low is where it's most noticable. Car feels great and very responsive, the tune is definately worth it and for the price it cannot be beat.

My gintani also ended up a little more quiet. Idk if it reduced some drone or the overall loudness. Makes it easier to see an xpipe installed in the future.

Yup. Took a 50 mile trip today on the turnpike and car is very civil. Barely any drone while cruising. I love having such an amazingly sounding exhaust yet quiet enough to take trips and daily drive the car.
