Like so many of our customers, John from Texas loves his ATS-V but felt it wasn’t quite living up to its potential. John came to us to see if we could remedy the situation, and we had the perfect solution to unleash the full potential of the ATS-V, a Remote Tapout Tune!
Aside from AFE intake filters, John’s ATS-V was completely stock. He knew the filters had provided additional power, but it certainly wasn’t enough. We completed a preliminary scan of John’s car to see the current state of the engine and found that even though the AFE filters had helped him pick up power, the car was actually running too lean and was dealing with knock retard as well.
We recommended installing the stock filters, so we could see how the car would perform after its first initial tune. After checking the scans completed on John’s car we were able to determine the best course for tuning his car remotely. John is now running a set of NGK spark plugs and is making significantly more power than stock or with the AFE filters, all while keeping the drivability of the car intact. We want to ensure that no matter how much additional power we can bring out of your ATS-V, you can still drive it anywhere, anytime and any distance. These cars were meant to be driven to their limit, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable when they’re not.
On a side note, we’re curious what John is working on with that engine block in the corner of his picture.
