If you haven't already you can try tweaking some of the throttle response, turbo response, early spool, and boost ramp settings. Really changes up the feel of the base maps.

Stay away from anti lag. Not really worth it in my opinion

Thanks. I’ll run the tune no tweaks for a week and change them this weekend

Also I was trying to store tunes on the slots. After storing with a label where do I check to see if it was actually stored on the slot?

If you have tunerview on your head unit you can do this there. If not then you can download it on your phone.
Open the app and then drag from the the left to pull this menu out.

At the bottom of this menu you'll see ktuner menu. Click on that. Once loaded in, drag from the left again and you should see your list of tunes.

I'm not currently hooked up to my car but when you are you'll see them appear there.

Honestly if you bought the ktuner new I would return it and buy it from two step performance since they offer the tsp tune for free with the purchase of a ktuner. If you bought it used then yeah you will need to buy it, but trust me you want power the tsp tune is the way to go. Base map tunes are power increases but very very conservatively

Question to see if you'd know, is running map 2 as a daily a good idea?

Absolutely. It's a very mild tune and perfect for reliable daily driving duty.

Cool, I was questionable at first but now I think I'll pull the trigger buy the Ktuner with TSP and run map 2

The TSP tune is a notch up compared to the KTuner base tunes. It just has a smoothness to it that's just about perfect. Tune 1 is basically stock boost. Tune 2 has some tweaks that make it a bit more fun. Tune 3 (the full on Stage 1 tune) is eye opening, especially the top end power. I've seen 26+ psi on that map. Needless to say, I save that for "special" occasions. ;)

I look at the TSP Stage 1 as a sort of a semi-custom tune for only $80 or free if you buy your KTuner from TSP. It's a great bargain.

I've looked at that menu but I just don't see the names of the tunes I made for it. I don't see my customized names for the tunes anywhere on the ktuner software or app

Bought it used on a good price. I'll probably end up buying it

You have to kind of remember which tune you put in which slot. That's why you should name them with a good brief description. Basically, when you go to upload to the ECU, the software will actually show you the name of the tune in that slot before you OK the upload.
