Received the CP i-Flash kit on Monday with Level 1 Mrk2 RS tune.
After a little bit of an issue with the driver for the OBD2 cable as I am using Windows 8 64-bit, tune loaded and ready for some fun.. Big thanks to Jonny for his help in helping me with the driver issue .. 🙂 . As I’m all the way in OZ it was sorted out with some emails and FB chatting but was sorted in about an hour.. (– we have updated the install process now – TFD)
The process was really simple and took no time. I was running a stage 2 tune from another tuner that required an ECU unlock however the i-Flash easily over wrote that tune and the Level 1 CP370 was on and ready to go.
What can I say, the CP tune is just great!!! So much more torque and smoother than the other tune I was running.. Power is delivered in such a linear manner and my first boot full coming out of a roundabout in 3rd has me grinning like an idiot.. 😀
Many thanks to Jonny for making this a great experience and for some fantastic support and service. After running another tune for over 12 months I was a little hesitant to go ahead with this but I am now so glad that I did after driving the car for even this short time all doubts have been blown away by this tune (oh and the power!!!).. 😀
Now to put some TFD stickers on…
I took the car for a run today for abut 300kms.. Some highway driving then back home via some back roads. The RS has always been great on trips but I have to say that it’s even better now after the Level 1 CP370 tune has been loaded. I think it’s mainly down to the addition of the extra torque.. Overtaking is even more effortless even from low revs and the times I did open it up a little, the power delivery is just so smooth and linear and just keeps building ..
For those playing at home the car has the following hardware additions:
- Mountune air box with pipercross filter
- Airtec stage 1 Intercooler
- Autospecicalists large bore hose kit
- Elevate plenum
- Mongoose turboback exhaust
- Forge recirc valve
- Elevate HD boost solenoid
Coming from a stage 2 tune from another tuner, I would highly recommend this tune to anyone that had a stock car or a similar level of mods to mine, as it has improved the drivability of the car considerably IMO…
