Skip to minute 6...look for porsche and then gain slowly on ferrari. Minute 22...hot lap.

Ecutek tune on 91 octane.
99 octane using same tune as above.
On Rev 6.3 tune at 91 octane:
Total Gains: 16.3whp and 24wtq. 25whp/wtq gained at 5250.
My baseline was: 204whp, 208wtq, and 193x.
Intake/Exhause: 217whp, 225wtq, and 215x.
Revision6.3 91: 220.5whp, 232wtq, and 218x.
Revision6.3 99: 231.5whp, 240wtq, and 230x.
Factory rated 256HP 247TQ. Now around 276HP 275TQ on 91 tune.
Baseline was done with upgraded wheels and 255 tires.
Latest run was done with same wheels but 275 tires.
Tuning: EcuTek can't connect to my ECU as it is too new. William of Delicios tuning is asking them for an update.
There was an issue at the dyno with my transmission temp waring light coming on. Was advised by a member (Perscitus) that it may very well be EcuTek having a high pooling rate and messing up with the EMC to TCU connection and throwing that light.
I will schedule a base dyno run without EcuTek to eliminate that possibility.
((Edited March 3, 2014:
I sent an e-mail to Mann Engineering who provided the dyno to set up a time to do a base tune to remove the possibility of the software causing the error. I was replied with the following from Gary at Mann:
After internal discussion, due to transmission heating issues and since the Legacy's automatic transmissions are not built to withstand long pulls using precision based dyno systems, we will not be tuning your vehicle. We do apologize for the inconvenience as we want to put preventative measures to protect our customer's vehicles. Thanks for your understanding.
This means I can not get an EcuTek tune unless I can find someone else who is set up for at least an e-tune for EcuTek, or do custom road tuning with an EcuTek tuner, or go opensource.))
((Edited April 8, 2014:
I have Ecutek cable and key. Have not yet downloaded software, but hoping to have William of Delicious Tuning do a custom tune at the end of April.))
((Edited May 14, 2014:
I have been working with Rob at AMR Performance on the East Coast
to get my car EcuTek tuned at 91 octane. He did a bang-up job tuning. In fact, he tuned it so well that between 91 octane and 99 octane, I got 11whp using the same map! ))
