I'm curious to see how well this system actually works. I already have a Predator tuner but I'm always open to suggestions.

Yes I too want to see the results and maybe a Dyno as well.
I have been told that the generic tunes do little or nothing..And that a licensed custom tune is the best method...To get air fuel mix flatlined based on driving elevations etc. And with Cai systems like Fast Lane the suggest a tune how can the generic fit that bill. Dont get me wrong cause I have a hypertech programmable tuner for my truck and for the most part love it. But it isnt a ls3 and I dont just want the codes turned off...I want active sensors and a properly tuned system that has a little more oomph to it.,

All of our tunes that Kirk and I develop in house on our Mustang Dyno are done using many different test beds and are CAI specific. Unlike most tuners our Powerflash system uses tunes that are tailored to your exact needs, this is what sets us appart from the rest.

There fast

Well I got my tune package way faster than I could learn to send it back to them. lol.
I'm not real good with computers . Just good enough to get myself in trouble clicking to many things.

They have been great to deal with so far.

You can get laptops VERY cheap these days, but if you doing it Just for this, you might just borrow one from a friend. Just a thought. Course, this is a good excuse to buy one if you've been wanting one and the woman has been saying no!

Oh and I'm anxious to hear some real world reports on this product....especially since I ordered mine yesterday! lol
The FREE upgrades and custom re-tunes after adding other mods are a bargain I just couldn't pass up. I'm as excited as a fat four year old on the playground that just found the free ice cream bin.

Just ordered mine today. I am dumping the Diablosport, which is also pretty good itself. You just cant beat the TCM tunes. I also took advantage of the deal on the New Era CAI. I was on the Vararam list, but I am a little too impatient.... I also have Kooks headers, cats, and SOLO catback. This car is going to rock....

Just wondering how much louder your exhaust is with the Kooks headers. I have the Mach-X with Doug Thorley shorties and I'm thinking of going with Kooks. Then I'll order the Vector tune all at once. Thanks!

You know, after putting the Kooks and Solo together, I honestly did not like it. It was just a touch too loud. I was even considering putting some type of mufflers in the system just before the tips(stock location) to quiet things down.

Now, since the roads were dry and clear today, I took the car for a ride. You know what, the exhaust did not bother me at all. I think I will give the combo some more time. I can always add the mufflers later...

I dont think you will be disappointed. I just like my cars quiet......

Just finished the install.
Talk about customer service ! Kirk called me today on his day off.
The weather is shit here right now but I will try to get it out for a test ride when the roads dry up .
It sounds smoother than it did before. That's all i can say about it right now.
Believe me if I can install this tune anyone can Right Kirk.

Ok , Just went for a 20 mile beat down on my car.
The Vector tune made a hell of a difference.
It pulls all the way to the redline now where before it seamed very sluggish from 5 to 6 grand .
So far I really like it. So don't be afraid to order a tune from them at all.
Now I have to sit and wait till spring

Excellent!! I'm really excited about it!! I think this tune is superior to all the rest, not only because it's a custom tune, but it's also uprgradable for Free. Handhelds just can't beat that. I'm hoping to have my header/exhaust system in the next few weeks so I can do it all at once as well. I might get impatient and go ahead with it before the exhaust though since I can retune after the exhaust for Free!
