OTS maps are very good, but if you're trying to extract the max, I suggest going with a custom tune regardless of the fuel type.

Even with the car not performing optimally at first due to stock plugs and filters, Cary didn't hesitate to reconnect for another dyno session and perfect the tune. So anyone that is looking for stellar custom tuning with outstanding customer service, I highly recommend JordanTuned.

Hi! When you say stock filters, do you mean the filters in the stock airboxes were a limiting factor or did you use any other intake system? And if you just changed the filters, do you have the Before and after numbers?

Correct, I'm running stock system with BMC drop in's. Filters definitely helped, we've seen at least 10+ whp before further tuning. Remember there are two filters in each box (paper and charcoal).

This!

Not just extracting the most power, but also fine tuning the driveability for YOUR specific car and YOUR specific driving habits/preferences/conditions

OTS tunes are fine, but are inherently generic to appeal to the most number of people but offering nothing specific (obviously)

It's really incredible when I think about it, I gained 175 whp and the car still feels smooth as stock.

Yes. Best $500 I've spent on this car...a custom tune
