    If you really want to feel an immediate kick; as you are driving and above 35-40mph use your paddle shifter (while in D) and shift down to 3 and give it a push, you will feel as if you are in a M/T.
    Food for thought :)

    I was able to tell by the obvious increase in torque steer at WoT that my tune had taken. Didn't need a data log to tell me that.

    But srsly do a data log.

    Flashed this morning with the 21 PSI dual tune along with some quick adjustments - feels very nice :)

    For whatever reason, looks like you need to update Ktuner software. Quick adjust should look something like this, Tune 1, Tune 2, Tune 3 etc.....

    Quick adjust can make your tune set and forget or as you move along here, there are ways to get unreal kick and lift. Study the default boost tables as they come in layout main and look at the graphs. Slight incremental changes can be made to bring out more power earlier in the lower to mid rpm's which then can surge to default final boost of 22 psi.

    +1 for KTuner and TSP Stage 1 Tune. This thing is a completely different car and so much fun. This is by far the best bang for the buck!

    BL55D, I've noticed you asking the same questions all over the board about the "safety" of the quick adjustments. As I've said before they are all "safe". Just avoid disabling ramp as it's hard on the CVT.

    If you want a good on the fly setup try this one. Enable early spool in the quick enables.

    Tune 1 - 21 psi - aggressive
    Tune 2 - 19 psi - moderately aggressive
    Tune 3 - 16 psi - moderate

    @BL55D I wouldn't chance the quick settings if I were you. Better to have peace of mind in knowing you are ok then take a chance and not be. Don't do it! You'll regret it if something happens not to your liking. :)


    So.....what have you chosen to do?

    I'm serious! He should trust his gut feeling. I mean...I'm one with what you are saying but if he has doubts, he should trust his doubts and leave it alone. It'll make life easier for him. On the other hand, I'm having the time of my life. He should trust his instinct and leave it stock. Maybe get some seat covers or something. :)

    BTW @BL55D I've been running my car with the aggressive settings for as long as it was available. I plan on taking the car to the track.....again.....for even further testing in just a few hours. I race my car a LOT. At a track of course. That's just me though.

    If you were worried that eating apples were bad for you and you'd get sick and a bunch of people around you are eating those apples for as long as the apples were available and they didn't get sick.......and you still would be concerned, I'd be that guy telling you to trust your gut and let me have all your apples. **Food for Thought** {Pun Intended} :D

    An easy way is to just adjust it for "1st" and leave the other "gears" alone. Depending on your tires, try something like 16-17 psi to start. Also, it's a good idea to set up Advanced VSA. Try the medium setting. See if those changes minimize wheelspin.
