Ryland from Florida recently had his ATS-V tuned by a competitor and very quickly he realized that something was not right. Not wanting to take any chances he began working with Tapout Tuning to alleviate any concerns.
As it turns out Ryland was right to be cautious because after Tapout looked over his vehicle’s tune, it was clear to see something was definitely wrong. We found that the previous company desensitized the knock sensors to the point where his ECM would have been unable to protect his engine in the case of bad gas or rail pressure drop. That was in addition to the boost being poorly controlled.
After implementing our Tapout Tune and eliminating the problems from the previous calibration, Ryland could immediately feel an improvement. “I could tell this tune was superior on the very first iteration. The boost control felt much more linear and smoother, and yet still faster than my original tune.” he stated.
Throughout this whole process we made a point, as we do with all our customers, to thoroughly explain the changes we were making during the data-logging process. This is so you can completely understand the changes and why we are making them. It is of utmost importance that we not only provide a great tune that brings massive amounts of power, but also one that can be safely implemented into your vehicle to provide years of driving enjoyment.
