trifeca tune questions

So i finally installed my tune.. it was really easy.. i set up agressive ghost cam... now the question is, do i need to drive so many miles to feel the gains from the tune? Idk if i am crazy or what but i feel no gains.. car actually seems worse performance wise. Like less responsive. The idle is rough as i expected cuz of ghost cam however today when i started coasting and took the car off gear, my rpm would go up and down up and down.. it was enough change to hear my car accelarating by itself and see the nedle go up and down. Normal?? Weird? Not normal? Finally, my exhaust seems a lot quieter now.. before i had lots of pooping when coasting, now it is barely happening..

What mods do you have the ghost cam may be causing the rpms problem

The trifecta tune seems to be more beneficial for the autos just because of the tran tune.

I don't think there is but if the only thing the tune does for me at least, is keep my car running good after the headers I'm ok with that, the ghost cam is just a bonus

Well it is definitely the ghost cam.. mean when i have it on nothing happens but when i disable it.by pressing the cruise.control on then the car goes all crazy and keeps accelerating itself from like 1200 to 1400. It doesnt come down past 1200. I am gonna deactivate ghost cam.

There may be less benefit of running a tune on a manual, but you should still have gains, even if they are not immediately noticeable. If anything, it may take more miles to really kick in, but then again maybe not.

As for the issue with the engine rpms, I'm sure it is the ghost cam as you have already mentioned turning off. I never really trusted the ghost cam as being completely safe, so I opted to get my tune without it.

It seems that you are not the only one that has said there are very little noticeable gains on a LLT with a M6 setup. The Boch ECM I still believe is the issue.

I felt the gains in my M6 - was a lot sharper with more pull.

I'd love to know what the IPF tune feels like though.

The ghost cam i stayed away from when a year or so ago, the thing was grinding when you would auto start. (i have an auto). The tune does not increase that much at peak, yet the mid range is where it shines. Stay tuned for the IPF, its coming

Grind was fixed when you use the ez flash to select ghost cam setting. It wont come on until about 170 Degrees now when set like this.

I like it when its always on and don't use the fix. I just turn on cruise control before starting when cold and you don't get grind.

Yeah i haven't had ghost cam on since 2011. It was brand new, and did not really care for it so much.

Hey, if I want my car to sound like it has a cam, i'll put a cam in it!

Oh and I'd watch out with the aggressive ghost cam. My car has stalled 3 times as soon as it activated: twice in a parking lot and once at a red light.
