    I think you were expecting something else from the tune that no one promised.

    Yesterday, I placed my order and received the tune file within the hour. I loaded up this morning and from what I can tell there’s a SIGNIFICANT difference on the top end. Yes, the bottom end torque is similar, but no one suggested it would pull harder. I’d put my otherwise stock Si above my Stage 2 DSG GTI in regards to the top end.

    Edit - I opened the thread and your last post wasn’t loaded or I completely missed it /shrug

    Yes I agree I didn't really notice it until I got on the freeway. With such high numbers advertised I was just anticipating an instant boost but overall I'm happy with it. Either way it's $65 big deal right!

    The tune has Boost by gear set up.

    I believe it's 18 lb's in 1st.

    2nd...... i'm not sure what its limited to, but I know it's not 24.5. This is normal to help traction amongst other things.

    @ParkwayDrive13 , where can I verify the boost by gear?
    This tune may help preserve clutch life over Vit Stage1 if this is the case

    It might be best to contact Derek Robinson, or TSP to confirm.

    Derek mentioned the BBG in the 10th Gen Civic Si Owners club group on Facebook.

    Just grabbed mine!

    Can't wait! It really sounds like a very well polished tune with all the quick adjustments, OTF map switching, launch control, BBG, and some power up top!
    Very excited to test this setup with a 2500 rpm launch & BBG at the 1/4 mile in a few weeks!

    Hopefully the drivability is spot on as well with part throttle and loads like A/C. Sounds like Derek takes his time so I'm prepared to be impressed.

    I don't keep my KTuner in the vehicle with the heat so bad currently so the only downfall for me is I have to start in "Vallet" mode and will have to switch to map 3 everytime! Not so bad! Still take the KTuner when I go out fishing though and when it starts to cool down.

    Paid last night around 8:00PM CST and I have an e-mail with an attachment by 8:10AM CST from TSP!

    Outstanding guys! Will report back once I can get a good test on this tune on the weekend.
