Ok, so I installed the tune last night. went pretty well. car drives pretty different.

I like the throttle response, second gear start still works and the downshift from 2-1 in manumatic mode is nice and smooth now.

When in M mode or manumatic mode the shifts are alot more aggresive I'm thinking maybe too much. If I rev it up to 5k rpm in manumatic then upshift (say 3->4) i can hear the tires break loose .... much better than how loose it was before but I think somewhere in the middle would be nicer :)

M mode is supposed to be "all out, balls to the walls" type sport mode. You can ask vince to turn down the pressure on the TCM, I remember him asking me about this early on and even though I loved it, we agreed that some people would want it lowered.

hmm, you know i actually have not tested that :) but... i haven't run a 0-60 stock either ....
guess i'm getting old:uhh: 31 years

trust me the manumatic working properly alone is easily worth 350bucks to me

you guys are crazy. you mean to tell me noone anywhere has made a turbo manifold for the LUW? after it has been used in the:

Ecotec DCVCP engines are used in:
2005-present Opel Zafira
2007-presentOpel Astra
2008-2009 Saturn Astra (1.8L LUW)
2008-present Chevrolet Cruze (1.8L LUW)
2009-present Opel Insignia
2012-present Chevrolet Sonic (1.8L LUW in North America)
not to mention, the 1.6l turbo uses the same exhaust pattern. do some more research, im sure you could turn up something
