About 6 months ago I thought my tune of about 347whp was good enough...but then I added hks intercooler and pipes and the intake...fast forward to now and Kineticautoworks tuned me at 383hp and 398tq. Or should I say 404tq lol...just saw the 2nd graph. Tuner is amazing!

Mods that matter...sort of lol
Flashpro
HKS intake
HKS Intercooler and pipes
HKS Legamax
RV6 downpipe and front pipe

Yes I'm running the HKS bov...have for a month. No issues so far.

Check out my vid below how the HKS intake is untuned lol. Hard to hear with background traffic but sounded like it was running modded cams...thanks to kineticautoworks for tuning that out.

Here's before the tune when they were pulling it in

Loving the setup man. Was there a reason why you went for the HKS intake specifically? Or were you just going for all out HKS?

That's a nice fat power band. I'm guessing it's just out of fuel up top?
Maybe...they don't push it anymore than it should...as in making sure the injector duty cycle isn't maxed out

Nice numbers/dyno chart! Do you track your CTR?

I want to tune mine but worried about how much faster engine would overheat while running HPDE events. I'm sure I'll eventually do it anyway because I want to try out Hondata's traction control and the temptation to tune would be too high.

I wouldn't go above 350 for tracking imo...but no..I'm not close to a track where I'm at

Nice!
Do you have any video of the dyno pulls?
Oh as for why I don't have a vid of the pull...it's just due to MD laws and this COVID. So I can't chill inside while they record. Sometimes the owner will make vids...but as for sound probably sounds the same over all inside the shop :D as far as sound like any other fk8 in there. They have a bunch of vids on their Instagram:

Loving the results and setup. Appreciate the Dyno sheets bro.

Can you post logs from your tuner? There is so much debate on the BOV because it's a MAF car. You say no issues. But we would like to see logs to back up that claim. Not saying your wrong or anything. Just would be nice for someone that makes that claim to back it up with logs so we can see if it runs a tad rich between shifts or when letting off the throttle.

So my tuner doesn't want me to share datalogs. Apparently people can steal some of his tuning from that. Sorry

Do you know if it was tuned by sweep testing or steady-state? Your tuner should know this question. Is there a baseline dyno?
