Turbo Tuner Installed.

Installed my Turbo Tuner today. No dyno yet, but will have one pretty soon.

All I can say is WOW! The power difference is very good. The car pulls very hard now and I feel like my 4th gear pulls now as hard as my 3rd gear used to before the TT.

I am impressed and very happy with this product. Also the installation was very simple and quick.

I do notice a little turbo lag, maybe it's just because the TT makes more power at the higher rpms...

They told me at the shop that the car with the TT should make full power in a couple of days once the ECU adapts to the new settings. Whether that is true or not, I don't know, but I could feel the power immediately after installation.

have fun playing with the added power. TT is great more than enough power for the average daily drivers like me.

Glad you are enjoying the power. It's a lot of fun for sure!
Be safe!

If you drive aggressively you will get less fuel mileage. If you do a lot of cruising or part throttle loads then no change or better fuel mileage.

There is a 7 day return policy if you're not satisfied with the product.

Stayed up with a new Porsche Cabrio today with the TT. Clear street...no cars...at a stop light. Edged him up initially for about 3-500 meters....then I slowed down. He sped on. That was enough for me.

So far I don't think anybody knows how Procede or Turbo Tuner will impact reliability over the years, but I hope everything will be ok.
