It's simple (once you see the trick to it). The curve that goes from 70 to 140 is the horse power curve (use the left hand y-axis to read the HP). The curve that starts at 120 is your torque curve (use the right hand y-axis to read the torque). Maximum horse power occurs at around 6,000 rpm. Maximum torque occurs at around 4,400 rpm.

how much is your piggy gonna run cause if its a simple tune more than 150 is not worth the money for 4 hp and 6 tq imo. also are there not other ways to simply change the a/f ratio?

429$ on their web site!
I must agree that it can do more them just remap the fuel table.... but for 4-5WHP gain on a stock or litely modified Koup it's a LOT of money.
I was expecting at least 15WHP.

RRM- how about the gain with 91 octane fuel???? and how easy to go from one tune to another???

Am I correct in thinking this was run on a 2.0? because those numbers are less than the stock WHP of the 2.4

you guys do realize this is something you can use to tune for further mods.. it's not a 1 and done thing..

not to mention the AFR still look like they're in the 11s at the end of the run.. which is rich so theres possibly more that can be pulled out of it .. further more.. peak numbers aren't the be all to end all .. you're gaining at least peak gains throught the whole power band

Wow. Reactions are not quite right. These gains are good for just adjusting fuel. People can use this further but it will help all other mods and the difference is significant for a stock n/a motor. Maybe guys here don't really understand. Not sure what to say really.

ROAD/RACE

What would the hp and torque improvements be for a 2.4 with cai???? If it were a true gain in both depts I would def be willing to consider buying
