Do it remotely, and go with Wedge. Just my opinion.

He co-founded PTF but has since branched off into a separate entity that focuses mainly on big-power hardware.


Regardless, his knowledge RE: tuning this platform is just about second to none.

Look up Motiv motorsports on facebook. He left PTF to open up his own company Motiv..... he's too busy making single turbo conversions. He's not going to have time for your petty little tune. He doesn't care about tuning OEM twins anymore

Thats not true at all. While Jake is doing big things he can still hook you up with a tune that you will love. Shoot him a message and he will hook you up.

Motiv is based out of the Rockville area, but Jake does dyno tunes at a few different shops around the area. I had my dyno session with him at Tuning Tech by Frank Smith in Crofton, MD.

For those running cat less with this kind of tune, do you get CELs? Or is there a way for them to code that out?

Cobb Stage 2 tunes and any tunes based off them such as these pro tunes suppress the code so it does not show up on your dash.

It may take him a few days to get back to you. I spoke with him about 2 weeks ago and he said it is taking him a while to respond as he was in the process of moving, if I remember correctly.

Dzeeno at PTF can also help you out. I'm working with Dzeeno right now and he has been great to work with.

Do you have power numbers before and post protune? Is it something very noticeable or is it more for just drivability?

You plan on adding an e85 for your protune or just 93?

Tuning on 93 will still be a noticeable increase in comparison to a COBB off the shelf map, however e85 is where its at in my opinion.

Ok cool, good to know. Can you run e85 with stock cats or is a DP a must?
