Torque Performance?


Recommended Posts

@walshmaine there is also a dude who goes by the name An Lal on the subaru facebook page give him a PM not sure if he is floating on here now or not, but he is a good tuner but road tunes that is, he will possibly be able to check your tune out without making any changes and tell you if you are running rich/lean...only downside of it is, that you are on the roads unless you know of some back roads that is safe..

I have kinda heard of that Tauranga tuner before, but never looked into them, but good call thanks.

I think a wideband is a good idea and is next on cards

 

Which end is it smoking from? If it's from the front then your rocker cover gaskets are leaking onto the exhaust manifold and it's not really the tuner's fault nor his problem - although as you say I would have expected them to mention it/at least have a look underneath. Chances are on the dyno with the heat and fans involved it may not be noticable.

If it's smoking from the exhaust then it's either so rich I would expect it to be running like a bag of S*** or you have a serious mechanical issue like a headgasket or piston ringland problem; again I would expect this to affect how it drove?

Strange that you didn't get a dyno printout at the end though. For peace of mind it wouldn't be the worst idea in the world to take it to another dyno and have them do a power + AFR run on it, should only cost you $130 or so.

Just had the rocker covers done a couple of weeks back. Still smoking. It's white from the exhaust. Only noticeable in stop/start traffic. Not using any water or oil. Fuel economy isn't the best (I figured STI's have terrible fuel economy anyway). Wideband is my next thing then likely another tuner. Only got a dyno print out the first time I took it there, not for the 3 times after, but was told is was re-dyno'd, so taking their word for it.  I haven't had a compression test (since first tune), but will look at getting another one thanks

      You are absolutely right. Declaring past debts to government agencies, even those that have been repaid, can be an important part of the application process for a variety of reasons. It shows financial responsibility and transparency. The same can be said for gambling, even casinos, which you can read about at https://www.slotozilla.com/nz/minimum-deposit-casino/1-dollar should also operate transparently. Of course, there are black casinos on the Internet, but they are not popular, because you never know whether you will withdraw money or not. If the form asks for information about past debts, it is usually best to disclose it, as this reflects honesty and can help establish trust in your financial information. Always read the specific instructions on the questionnaire carefully, as they will tell you what you need to specify.

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
       
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
       
      Cheers Shaun
