Diesel Race tune : Went to the Dyno!

Following this thread :

And after chatting with Corbin Murphy @ Fleece, i wanted to know how much power my car was making and if the 50hp tune was indeed stronger then the Race tune. (The tune you get when you delete)

So Corbin made a Tune that "should be the 50hp tune scripted over what you had." (The 50hp tune is one of the 3 tunes you get when you just tune a stock Diesel)

So here are the results : Land vehicle Vehicle Car Chevrolet cruze Motor vehicle
Line Text Pattern Design Architecture
Electronics Technology Font Electronic device Auto part
Technology Electronics Scoreboard Display device Electronic device

1st of all, if you look in the picture where you see my car, on the blue shield its writen Mustang Dyno, so these are good numbers. The guy there never did a Cruze, didnt know Diesel existed and was quite impressed.

I was right! The 50hp tune is indeed more powerfull then the Race tune, but the amount of BLACK SMOKE you get is ridiculus, lol. The guys at Fleece did an incredible job on the Race tune to make it this powerfull with almost no smoke. On the Graph you can see the difference between the two tunes.

181hp and 296lbs of torque at the wheels for the 50hp dirty tune. The torque punch earlier too, its quite violent and funny when you drive.

173hp and 286lbs of torque at the wheels for the Race tune. Smoother driveability and no smoke.

Conclusion : I will use the 50hp tune only when i go Drag racing or to do stupid things. Its not worth it on the street for the difference with the Race tune.

Incapable? Autocals are linked to basically the 'master' tool. You save your file "For Autocal" and then any Autocal linked to yours can flash it (no one else's Autocal will be able to flash it). I have done it far too many times now.

So long story short you'll have to buy one from me then. Or convince them to send you the unlock code. If you wanted to.
If you claim your tunes are better than other tuners that sell them and you want to prove it in a challenge that you have issued... Shouldn't you send a loaded AutoCal to @Poje to install your tunes in his car and run them back to back on the same day. Then if your tunes are superior you have great marketing to sell more of them, and if they are not, then he can send you back the AutoCal and run his current tunes. I would imagine that Poje may even buy them from you for a prearranged discounted price if they perform as well as you claim...

Whenever I am doing an installation article the manufacturer or tuner sends the tuner/module/programmer to me to install on the given vehicle. In fact one arrived this morning for a future article...
