Tuning question

When tuning will you notice a big difference right away or does it take time for the car to actually adjust ?? Thanks for the help

It can be hard to feel the difference from a tune for mostly two reasons.

a) The tune just sucks. It's pretty hard to screw up the wide open throttle part, but I've seen it happen.

b) The gains from a tune are such a small percentage compared to how much power the car is already making. When you have a 450hp vehicle, you probably won't feel another 25hp.

With a good tune you will notice a difference right away with throttle response, power and torque (especially off the line performance)

It does feel more snappy but its funny how lots of people on the forum make it sound like it made the car so much more powerful

Did you get a tune after you installed all of those? If not then you need a tune. I don't have half of what you installed but with my Predator tune and especially the ******* tune it was like night and day.

Yes I got the tune after maybe that is why I do not notice much difference with the tune I did feel a lot more power with my kooks headers and high flow cats that for sure
