Mine hunts when cold, drives like a dream the rest of the time.

Also, some cars are just spuds. I can attest to that with my '08. Other owners with 08's with the same mods as me were getting 10-20hp more than my car on the same dyno, by the same tuner. Some were running 18/19psi but the maximum boost my car would safely take was 16.7psi. Not every car is the same nor will react the same as others after modifications and tune.

You might just be driving a potato unfortunately.
trolley you are our local potato.
my 257 made 250whp at 5300rpm before tune 284atw @ 5100rpm
torque also up over 80nm. id be a bit head scratchy and dissapointed too.. maybe its just been tuned really safe and for reliability.. trollhead had a point about the summer day too but!
