What up all, thought i would give a little update. Witht he COVID vaccinations ramping up its been a little busy in my world at the hospital.

The tune, well its still pretty great, and after a couple more revisions its even better. The customer service is still same day or next depending ont he time I send the data log throught he cloud portal . Should be hitting the track soon as the local track is now open and every wednesday night is street drags.


Just for giggles I wanted to see what Vroom would pay for my truck, I filled out the online forms and they came back at $37.100. Lol, before taxes and fee's I paid less than that for it new........ Crazy how the used car market prices for certain vehicles has stabilized and the prices are up.....
Seems like the EPA is trying to go after everyone right now, I have the Cobb Accessport for the Stang and the latest firmware update had something to do with tunes that aren't CARB approved yet or something along those lines.

Not surprising. they shut down Idaho Rob a pioneer diesel tuner a few years ago and some others. This is why you see so many tuners with emission compliant tuning and keep al factory systems operable. Whipples tuning for the 2015 and up is 50 state legal.. If they can do it others will follow.

EZ lynk, and any platform that allows for a tuner to defeat or create tunes are vulnerable to action by the watch dawgs

All in all we need to start watching what we say on forums. The fact that the EPA went into forums and Facebook groups to grab evidence for the lawsuit, makes me weary.

But this RPM act may have potential. Just more so getting the word out.

Totally, they did the same thing in the diesel forums too

Trucks running amazing.......... and I finally made it to the track yesterday.......

but not with the truck. I took the Audi because my buddy called me out in his Jeep SRT-8 and my other buddy in his Challenger 392.... great news I took them both.

Best pass of the night was a 12.359 @ 111.82 mph with a 1.842 60ft. Got 8 passes in

In tech

When I get back from vacation the truck will hit the track, two weeks probably from now

Went ahead and started toying with the E40 Since the E30 seems to be pretty dialed in..... Will run it on their base tune and after a few days of learning and settling in, will data log and send it off. This way when I hit the track I have options....

Always great when folks want to play, but even better when they’re good sports.

My brother has a lifted 2014 D-Max with a bunch of stuff done. He was at around 700whp and I could still inch him out. I'm pretty sure his wheel/tire combo is like 180lbs each though, lol.

opted not to get the msd coils, even if I had good success with them on my 15. Just to much info out there that they are not necessary.

But, I did get some NGK 90945 LTR6BHX Ruthenium HX Plugs....... Time to change mine, so I am hearing good things about these........ Hope to get them in sometime this weekend,,,,,
