Default C7 Tune

I saw Doug at Carlisle and we discussed a tune for my car using the Diablo InTune. The beauty with the InTune as opposed to HPTuners or EFILive is that there is no "tell" left when reverting back the stock tune at dealer time.

I got my tune from Doug this morning and installed it this afternoon using the InTune. I've been running the 93 Octane AFE Diablo tune with the Firm Shift tune. AFM turned off and throttle +15%.

I had ARH LT's installed by Steve Doten at Carlisle and was getting the subsequent CEL light from the hi-flow cats not heating up fast enough to make the ECM happy.

When I installed the ECS tune I left all the above parameters the same but changed to the hard shift to check that out.

TEST DRIVE: Firstly, no CEL. Secondly, the car jumps now! it feels stronger everywhere. The Hard Shift tune just seem to make the A6 shift faster with no noticeable jerk when shifting. Overall, I am extremely happy with how the LT's and tune turned out and I can put the stock tune back in in about 10 minutes for those trips to the dealer.

Thanks Doug!

Kevin

That tune won't be good for long after the winter modding season.
