do the pdx ap maps modify the TPS at all?
if not, is that service available?

you mean the throttle maps? I would imagine so. You just have to tell them what you want and what you have on your car.

In some of the maps we do modify the TPS tables, but not all. If you want it, or dont, please specify and we can accomodate your desires.

is there an advantage to this on a 5 speed?

PDXTuning 03-07-2007 06:28 PM

That is more a matter of personal preference, and perhaps turbo size, than it is on the transmission. BTW, technically they are both 5 speeds......

:icon_mrgr ya but i meant the REAL 5 speed :icon_wink

OHHHHHH, that 5 speed! In that case the answer is 3, or was that 42?

Are you saying this:

If I have a 2006 LGT 5MT while a huge throttle opening delay (i.e. I can mash the gas quickly - and RPM's won't raise at all) that you can remove that delay?
In addition, how are your maps on the infamous 5MT "studders" at 2000-2500 RPM?

Please let me know - I am interested in a map.
How much do your maps typically cost? I am an AP 1.0 user.

I am saying that we can alter the table that controls how much the throttle body opens with respect to how much you push down on the gas pedal. If the only problem that is causing your car to not raise the RPM during that delay is the throttle plate not opening, then yes, we can fix that. However, I highly doubt that is the problem. The best thing you can do is show me a data log of what the car is doing when you mash the gas and I can tell you if the problem is related to that table, or something more likely like the tip in enrichenment table.

Our maps start at $150, for a basic set of 5 maps, and goes up for race fuel or autocross specific maps if available.

post again mang you have 666 posts! hurry!

lucas569 03-08-2007 11:52 AM

btw ill be getting a PDX map soon as i was not impressed with those OTHER guys who are no longer here... i fell for the hype.. waste of $$$ imo.

PDXTuning 03-08-2007 12:23 PM

We are not perfect, but we are not going any where either! I would love to get our response time down a bit, but we are still averaging about a week before the maps are able to go out.


hogmeat 03-08-2007 04:11 PM

Thanks for the reply PDX!
I don't know how familar you guys are with the LGT's - but they all have a throttle opening delay "built in" (for that "luxury feel"). Nothing is wrong with mine - all the test drive cars were the same. Many people have complained about it here too.
So - this could be taken care of? What about the studdering? Any noted improvements there?

PDXTuning 03-08-2007 04:33 PM

Our maps do not have the stutter in them. I would say we are very familiar with the LGT, but that is just becuase I know we have made the fastest LGTs out there, and we are one of the top reflash tuners for both EcuTek and AP.

Much of the "luxury feel" comes from the dual mass flywheel, although the TPS to throttle angle map is less aggressive than in the STi, or DBW WRXs. If that is the only problem you are looking to have fixed we can definately fix that for you.


hogmeat 03-08-2007 04:35 PM

Yup. That's pretty much it. I'll be PM'ing you.
