For those with the Ghost Cam

Just wondering how long it took for yours to work after flashing your car. I've put about 100 miles on it, and its still not working. Vince said sometimes it takes a bit, just wondering how it went with you guys.

Mine was instant, just needed the car to warm up. Do you have your cruise control off? won't work if it is on

Yea, I toggled it between on and off a few times. Come to think of it, I had it on when i flashed the car. Perhaps that's the problem?

Instantly have the flash it worked.

Is this the first time with the tune?? I first installed the tune in March (without Ghost Cam) and it took about a week before I noticed a difference.
After I installed the Ghost Cam last week I noticed the Ghost Cam right away.

Vince got a new tune file to me, so it works now. Hated to do it, but I bugged him to get it to be more agressive.

If you are just asking about the ghost cam it is just sound at idle. He adjusts the cam phasing to run rough idle basically, but you gas it it goes back to normal. The tune itself has other positives, auto tran tune, 13 hp gains, and optimising existing mods. The ghost cam is just something you can order with it. It has a switch that you can turn it on and off by turning on or off your cruise control.

Ok ollie, thanks for reply. I am still trying to see the $400 cost , but i know in my head that is fine, (gulp) LOL but to get my tranny a bit tight and possible 13hp gain. maybe it will be worth it,,,ghost is fine i guess for tone, i will think on this. later ryd,

Well, I feel like mine has a little better throttle response. I can tell its just a bit quicker in the midrange, but it all depends on the mods you have. The tune will optimize them and squeeze the most power out of them. I'd say its worth it. The ghost cam was just an extra for me.

My Ghost Cam didn't seem to be working when I installed my tune either, but my exhaust note was so much deeper than it used to be. I gave it a few hundred miles then asked Vince to tweek the tune since I couldn't tell a difference toggeling it on and off with the cruise button.

When I installed the next tune, I instantly had a VERY aggressive idle... even on the cold start(the first cold start only). But now my exhaust note when driving the car sounds alot more like it did before the first tune. I'm wondering if maybe he had a milder version of the cam tune in the regular table or something the first time, making it sound so much deeper then. Earlier today I looked back after shifting into 2nd to see some nice black marks. I could make it bark shifting into 2nd before, but I never actually laid down rubber like that before. I definitely have more power with this new tune.

Wohoooo. That sounds great sterling. Now I'm more excited about getting this tune. I'm hoping for Thursday delivery. I can get a second gear chirp but would love to lay some ruber down.
