Ok. So no flash tune yet. But under WOT they are probably getting most of what they need to be changed actually changed. Boost levels, fueling, timing, and so on.

I have used a few piggy-back style tuners on several different platforms. They have their drawbacks for sure. I am sure the flash tunes for this will be smoother and safer. But not sure they will see much more power other than in tweaking the tune more.

The LAP3 is definitely not as refined as the JB4 is. So I am glad they are in the mix. There have been some overboosting issues and plugs/coils causing problems on a few cars. Nothing major with the LAP3. As for power Im guessing there is a little more out there to gain. We shall see. I would not be surprised if they hit the 500HP with a flash tune.

Those are pretty stout number for sure.
I bet they are more interested in making intakes and FMIC's than piggyback tuners if the are not showing the boost graphs. It's impressive what the car can pickup but I agree they have to be pushing more boost because I can't see factory crap being that restrictive especially when they say "91 mode and 93 mode"

Oh I am sure they want to push parts te sell for sure. I bet at the larger numbers both would be beneficial anyway. Stock stuff usually isn't designed to be efficient past stock. Plus people like to bolt new parts on the car. lol

So eventually tuners will show the added boost to get those numbers on their tunes. Just have to wait for the info to come out eventually.
