interesting..i'm using my jb4 to register boost pressure..and it usually peaks 23-24...guess i should invest in an actual boost gauge to connect to the ecs tap im using already for hobb switch with meth system

Different companies running different files, but I’m tapped, real boost gauge, and spike 30 on 93 oct pump gas and bleed off to 27-26, rarely do I actually see 30 but it seems to live around 29-28 almost everywhere. Probably part of the reason ya see UM cars throwing down slightly higher dyno numbers all other things being equal. I’m actually surprised giac’s canned tunes are running that little boost, thought apr was around 28 spike and bleeding off a few lbs near redline assumed the other big companies canned tunes were the same unless customer asked for less.

It’ll be interesting as the Cobb tuners become more popular and dynotuning becomes more prevalent on each customers individual car. I suspect you’ll start seeing more timing less boost and basically the same power. The tunes will just be dialed in better for the specific car, mods, gas quality etc. not that I’m complaining about the canned tunes, they do seem really well sorted out, but ya know if your car was on the dyno and the tuners good there’s probably 5-10 horse that’s left to be extracted if ya wanted it all at the razors edge in my experience on other cars and imo

Sorry just saw I quoted wrong guy, meant to quote the guy u quoted

yeah since I'm stacking my peak is 26-27 now..but even with just the giac tune its pretty torqy lowend.
