My pleasure.

I don't believe they are signature required.

Let me know once it's in hand!

Working on that valet tune for you too. I will make a thread showcasing the features once it's done. It will be provided free to all clients that currently have the cable. Features I plan on implementing for 'valet mode':

I'm thinking..
  • 4,500 RPM rev limit (or should I make it less)
  • 40 MPH top speed limit (is this too low? May prevent freeway driving)
  • 2,500 RPM cold revving limit
  • Retarded ignition and camshaft timing
  • Lethargic throttle response

Anyone who drives it would say "Hey, Bring back my Civic, this M3 is horrible!!"

Yes, if you get coding. The tuning cable doesn't read freezeframe data but the coding cable can.

I think the 40 MPH is a bit low. For me atleast, main roads in Germany have a speed limit of 65 MPH so I think this is a good speed. As long as the people can't redline our car and accelerate fast with having a reduced rev limit highway driving shouldn't be an issue, just in case the person needs to move the car to another shop for some reason at least they can go with the flow of traffic if they need the freeway. I am not sure what your highways speeds are. What is the 2,500 cold revving limit?

Hi Mike, just wanted to clarify because I may have misunderstood. Does the cable from the group buy allow for remote coding? Or do we need a seperate cable?

Coding and tuning cables are separate and exclusive. You would need a coding cable in order to code.

Anyone that has received their cable and is ready to tune, please give me a ring/text/email/PM.

edwin_jo and Phanto//M are already tuned.

C17Moosedriver scheduled for Tuesday. Talked to a few others too. Let me know if ready.

(PS: I will be out of town Tuesday - Saturday for some business down in Vegas and the consumer electronics show - but I will have internet and tuning ability from there).

Thanks!

Hey guys !!! I received my cable yesterday, and later at night I hooked up with Mike so he could do the tuning. It took less than half an hour to do the whole process.

My car was updated back in June 2012 by a dealer, and according to Mike I was updated to the latest software. Well, back to Mike's tune, it is like driving a completely different car, the smoothness, the driveability, and the pulling power in every gear is dramatically improved, the car is much more enjoyable to drive now. I highly recommend this tune, I could not be any happier.

If you guys are in the fence whether to get Mike's tune, don't think twice, just go ahead and do it, you will not be disappointed.

The customer service that Mike provides is second to none. Mike, if you are reading this message, thanks again for a wonderful product.

Next mod, coding perhaps?

Since I work in NYC all the time and could not make it back home to tune the car, I asked Mike if he could allow my father, who is a big IT executive (52 years old at Altria Inc.) and knows his way around computers, if he could get in touch with Mike to do the tune. Mike happily obliged and I gave my father the phone number.

It turns out when my car was at the dealer this past September, it was updated to 240E. I had requested the update be performed and they told me it was going to be 231E, but when Mike checked my DME, it was actually 240E!

My father sat in the car while his laptop was hooked up and when he called me after the tune was done, he said it took no longer than 20 minutes which is amazing in itself.


He started it up and noticed it got much quieter much sooner. I have a custom exhaust with magnaflow mufflers and a custom made x pipe with turner test pipes. He will drive my car if I tell him I won't be back in town for an extended period of time if I am too busy in NYC. He knows how the car drives and he just recently sold a Shelby gt500 with 550 rwhp.

The first thing he said to me when he called me after driving it was "holy mother of god, what did this guy do? This is amazing!" He said the car just had so much more pep in the lower rpms and felt a much more useable level of bottom end torque. When he pulled out of my neighborhood and let it rip, he said it was literally fast as shit and sounds entirely more open and refined than it was before--and it sounded great before the tune.

I cannot wait to get home in a couple days and drive it for myself. I will post a new, separate review of the tune based on my experience. My father said Mike is a very smart and nice guy! Thanks Mike!!!
