Ok, I have finally gone to a stand alone ECU and away from the UTEC. Phil from www.elementtuning.com tuned my car this week. Holy crap, what a hell of a difference it makes. I'm not sure if I really gained any peak hp (I certainly didn't lose any) but I gained mid-range hp, spool at 3800 instead of 4500 and maintain that level all the way to redline.
I was at 286 whp running 22 lbs... now I am at the about the same power (if not more) at 18 lbs. It doesn't matter what the load is... it drives like a champ. I hope to go in the next couple weeks and hop on the same dyno at Agile to see what the power difference is. I'll let you guys know.
I'm about to go out for a little bit, but if you have any questions about the Hydra, let me know and I will try to answer them all.
Oh, BTW... this also means that a UTEC is for sale . I don't have the version number right off hand, but let me know if anyone is interested.
