I decided I would share my thoughts on my torqued performance stage 1 map I just flashed last night with tactrix.
First off, I am not a guru and the tactrix came in the mail last night so I had no experience using openECU or romraider. The tactrix is pretty nice and windows recognized it immediately. I did run into some problems with ECUflash and had to tinker around with it for a few hours because it was not recognizing my ECU even after reading the instructions that came with it. I had to uninstall and reinstall the ECUflash with a previous version and then everything was Gravy.
The tune is incredible. I sent some logs to Eric and he said everything looks great and that my boost is just a notch on the lower side (nothing outside normal).
When first driving it around I noticed with just partial throttle that the small power bump that we usually feel at around 3k now held on rather than just a bump of power and then gone. My roomate immediately noted "wow thats a lot smoother". The car pulls MUCH harder after 3.5k rpm - redline.
1st gear the car is one strong smooth pull. The car definetly gets to redline faster and the front end lifts quite a bit more.
On the road in 3rd through 5th gear the car feels like it has some top end now which is nice, as it has a lot more grit. I reccommend this map to anyone, especially because Eric will have you data log your driving and send the results to him for fine tuning.
Let me know if any of you have questions about it!
