Recently, we worked with Timothy, who had just purchased an ATS-V. It was running a competitor’s tune and was only making 6 pounds of boost. Before making the trip to our shop, he installed our Intercooler Fill/Bleed Kit as a first step. That resolved the low boost issue, however, the car then started to misfire under boost.
Timothy knew he wanted to bring the car to us for a dyno tune, and he scheduled the trip here so we could resolve the existing issues and see what kind of numbers a genuine Tapout Tune could put down. Upon inspection of his plugs, we found they were gapped incorrectly and were not installed with any dielectric grease. We also found the intercooler fill valve/port was leaking, so we replaced it with a new one. We always keep these in stock as they are a common failure point. So with new plugs and fill port installed, along with another fill/bleed session, we got Timothy’s ATS-V on the dyno where it made 502 whp. That’s up from the 458 whp that we baselined the car at before making any tuning edits.
After the test drive, we knew Timothy couldn’t have been any happier with the results. Though he did say he will be back next year to upgrade to the Purple Belt Package!
