Hi Craig,

No one seems to agree with me but you are not the first one to have a betty tuned at ASG and not be happy, mine is crap, yes i said it, CRAP!

Same thing happened to me in that no-one told me what the go was and i was chucked the keys andshoved out the door only to find that it had a bit of go up top and nothing below 4200 rpm (very strange for a 2.5L)

I phone then to talk about it and got blown off, i won't ever be going back there so i feel like i can tell you the truth!

My advice to you is take it elsewhere!

That lag is ridiculous for a TD04 on a 2.5L! The peak numbers are sound, but the idea of a TD04 is to punch it up nice and early.

I wouldn't worry about a boost figure as such. Let the tuner find the best combination of boost, fuel, timing etc etc etc. I would get a figure of boost and a copy of your baseline dyno result. Figures are great for wanking over on a forum, but you should use a dyno to look at where you are making gains.

i.e. this is off my evo. As you can see the baseline result was farked! (explains my lack of love for the car for a long time).



It also lets you see if the tune is worthwhile. I.e. you don't want to smash in 2 bar for a 10hp gain.

Hope you get it sorted.

Amusing thread, a+, would giggle again

My Opinion - wrapping looks a little gay, unless you get it done by a pro. Should look ok in flat black though instead of the gay fake cf everyone loves versus the red body

my08 STI intercooler won't fit without changing the inlet manifold and turbo - i did the swap to my shitter, its not simple

Hi Craig
Firstly good work with the driveway thread and mods. Its taken you awhile but no doubt you feel like you have a new car again.

With regards to the tune I think you might want to establish a few things up front with Sean. For me these things are:

1. What boost levels am I comfortable with running and what are you looking to achieve with the tune ? ie...I want a torque monster that peaks early at the expense of some hp.
2. Can I be here when you do the dyno power runs?
3. Can you go for a drive with me in the newly tuned car?

As far as the TBE does yours just have one muffler?

Your VF52 should get you to 300 hp with the right supporting mods and tune.
Sean will be tuning my VF52 next Thursday so I am very interested your tune.

I read it that the TD04 was still on?

If this is with a VF52, that's crap. 50hp is missing somewhere!
