Palm Beach Dyno Tune....no sport mode needed

Hey folks! Loaded my Palm Beach Dyno Stage 1 93 tune this morning. This tune is 93 octane only.

Shout out to the folks at PBD for putting together a tune that adds power, but retains the drivability for a daily driver! I won’t have access to a Dyno here in Belgium for a few weeks, but my grin and my wife’s “this might get you in trouble“ look are proof enough for me that I made a good choice.

They also sent a 91-93 octane basic performance flash that I’ll try out in the next few days.

I want to mount my nGauge on the left side of the steering wheel, possibly on the A pillar, so my son and I are working on something I can 3D print. I’ll post pics.

Cheers,

barnesy

Can’t speak for everyone, but after a day using the Stage 1 93 tune in normal mode. I don’t think I’ll be using sport much. I’ll report back in a week or so.

I will miss the red gauges. Might see if I can do something about that using Forscan...

Sport mode throttle sensitivity is whack. But Sport mode definitely has faster shifting. Do tunes improve shifting in normal? I wonder how they improve shifting at all but many claim to do so.

Can normal mode be switched to look like sport mode using Forscan? I searched high and low for about a week and found nothing that hints at such a feature exists. I too spoke to Palm Beach Dyno and may do their 93 octane tune.
