So surprisingly my tuner came in while I was off at dinner so I promptly loaded it and fired her up! According to the info sheet that came with it from VMP tuning it says I have a MAC intake but it's actually a BBK intake. I sent him an email explaining this to Justin from VMP. Do y'all think it will make a big difference?
I definitely feel much tighter shifting and better response and less lag time which is great; when it shift between 1st and 2nd it chirps and sometimes also between 2nd and 3rd haha. So far overall I'm quite happy with the results though I only drove it for about 20 mins.
I did take it to a closed road (where people usually race) and I did a couple of drag runs using my obd2 diagnostic software ( I don't know how it compares to the numbers from going to a track) but I did two 1/4 mile runs as follows:
'60 2.204 seconds
'60 2.014 seconds
Both times my (stock) tires spun in place for what seemed like an eternity ugh =( ; however I think the software takes that into account and doesn't start until the car actually gets moving =)
I haven't had any time to look at what other people are getting in an s197 v6 automatic with a CAI and Tune but I'm ecstatic regardless; it feels so much more powerful!
