With 95 members now, surely someone lives near Auburn, Washington. What an offer!

Edmonton, and yeah I'd love a free tune but I don't even own the car yet. Signing papers tonight and maybe pick up in few days. But also tight on funds right now too. Just bought the wife a sorento a month ago and we had to buy winter tires now 2nd brand new car and will probably need to buy winters for it. I have 15" studded tires from out old mazda 3 that I don't think will work but going to try mounting one to see. You probably miss the alberta weather hey? I am hoping more stuff happens with tuning so I can get something next spring. But at this point figuring out winter tires is number one on my list.
I had similar issues years ago with my cobalt ss. I was planning on running smaller pulley and getting tuning but wanted 3" exhaust first. Everyone laughed at me. Oh I'd only put 2" on a 4 cylinder. 3" is for the V8 mustangs. Well the factory exhaust is 2.5 I think and my car is faster than a lot of V8 mustangs. I have cash and want 3" exhaust to help support my mods. Can you do it or not? Still argued so just left.

How far can this be pushed at this point? Stage 0, 1, 1.5 what would we be able to have access to?

Already have some mods to support more tunage FMIC, CAI, Exhaust, 3" catless DP (will be done shortly but will need downstream O2 disabled if possible).

What is pricing?

and would data logs for the car being tuned help you? if it would what PIDs do you want logged? may even be able to provide dyno read outs with the logs during pulls
We can go crazy with the tuning it is a very familiar file very similar to the 15 vt's, You guys got much better tunes then the Velosters factory so it will start with a stage 1 tune. Stage 0 really wont do much from your guy's factory tune. Datalogs always help but are not absolutely necessary. As with the way this ecu works what we command is what we get and we have found what we need to make the ecu do the rest.

Any luck and numbers?
I was planning on posting up some results this coming week but It looks like i will be a little behind schedule. I am getting a custom exhaust fabbed up and we are planning to post results of pre and post installation.
The pre exhaust dyno will consist of the tune i am running, with the addition of my current bolts ons which include:
Intake/Catless Dp/60mm tb/FMIC
The post dyno results will be Full bolt-ons
Reason why i say we are behind schedule is because the mandrel bender took a turn for the worst while they were bending my 3in. They has roughly a day of down time trying to fix the rod that broke on the bender.
So even tho they are back u and running they have to take it easy and take there time so the rod does not break again. They have another one on rush order just incase it happens again. With that being said we are crossing our fingers and hoping to have it finished up by monday
