When are you going to the everything install? i want to see what numbers you get with the IM install and from there i will see if i want to onder another one or not..

Am sure TSI will send you the tune tomorrow, jus talk to jason.. he is a cool guy and he will send it to you, if not i can send you the lates one they send me...

Have you seen the new IM they have for the R18? wepon R is making a new one for us, and it looks alot better, but it might not be as good as the one available right now for us turbo people..

really, a new im? everything was installed friday night into saturday morning and it looks sexy as ****.... me and ed (jdmreddy) installed everything and even put in a secret fujita intake (from the turbo to maf and filter) you will see when pics come out

the problem im having is that the car starts, and shuts off after 5 seconds... if I gas it I can keep it on but it only revs to about 3k then limits it... I have a feeling it has to do with the afr and it being too rich... when its in boost it runs and whenever its not it doesnt... so im hoping the tune that came with my fic (blackendskys old tune that was for an auto) is just a bad tune and thats why the car isnt running...

When do you plan to take it to a dyno to get tune? i really want to see how much power you make at around 10 or 11psi witht the IM install.. i was expecting about 230whp, lets see if i was right.. even 220whp will be good, since the torque will be about the same..

Is this just a matter of getting the latest version or is it tailored for an individuals set up?

its a base map... its set up to run safley... tunes can vary depending on altitude and alot of other factors, you can run it off the base map but tuning is reccomended....

Hey guys!

I did install the kit in Russia. But we got the problems with the tune - it seems, it was corrupted when I did copy it to my laptop because of the tune encoding depends on regional settings in Windows. The engine did not even start as all the fuel maps have the positive values, instead of negative as it should have (as the injectors are 50% larger). The tuners in Moscow did a new tune (the car gains 205 whp), but it is not very good as the car gets falling in different conditions. Would you please send me the tune supplied with a kit? And tune you are using now so I could try it. I did write a request to Turbo Specialties, waiting for the reply now, but I will be very thankfull for your tunes as well. Thanks!
