    Hi heeheehaahaa,

    for better response should be no problem but to improve FC abit tough..................

    1) use lighter rims
    2) use 5w to 30w engine oil
    3) better plugs


    cheers

    Re: OBD Tuning

    Regardless of who tunes your engine, it is important to dyno at a location that does not know the anything about the car history. Not what's been done to it, what's going to be done to it, who did or who will do the work, etc. The dyno operator is only supposed to dyno it, period.

    Ideally the dyno location should be a place neither pro nor anti the garage where you got your work done. This way even if they do hear of the car's history, they are the least likely to inflate or deflate numbers.

    If you want an accurate idea of % gain or loss, never dyno your car where you tune it, and never use a location that your tuner specifically recommends. Use other locations that are blind, objective, and repeatable.

    Through blood and night, to light.

    They don't do customized tuning.. just flash some presets onto your car. Over in 20 minutes. Which is complete nonsense if you ask me.

    Boss takes at least half a day to get your car to its peak, on their dyno. For around the same price.

    So seriously.. go to Boss. I had excellent experience with them.
    Mods to date- Boss Motorsports: Eisenmann Sports Exhaust, BMS ECU tuning, Nology plugs, Gruppe M CAI, Weitec Hicon TX "plus" coilovers,H&R sway bar, Liqui-Moly 5W-40 engine oil. J4C: Selectable Sprintbooster. R2D: Ignition Upgrade.
    Mods in the pipeline- Boss Motorsports: Steel braided brake lines, carbon brake-pads, slotted rotors. R2D: 335 motor-mounts.
    Mods dream list (i.e. will never happen) - Paddle shifters, Style 313 rims, supercharger, CF boot lid, CF bonnet, BMW Performance Seats.

    Not cheap, but Subaru in Toa Payoh... dyno dynamics dyno on the top floor in the coolest dyno cell in SG.. nice knowledgeable operator, plus since it's not a workshop, there's almost no chance of workshop to workshop politic-ing and messing around with numbers.

    Do a before and after dyno to look at % gain. At no point should you express excitement or speak / hint at/of what was done or what you're going to do, where you get your work done etc. Just dyno it.

    And don't tell your workshop or tuner when you're going to dyno it or even that you're going to at some point. Just get the work done, and get the dyno done, completely separately, no info/hints/lead-ons/expressions of expectation, excitement, etc. at either location.

    Cool, thanks and noted.

    “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
    “And most important, have the courage to follow your heart & intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
