Talking Overkill tune

So last weekend I just had my overkill tune installed (thanks to a vary big help!!) and thought I would write a little review.

Right off the bat you can feel the throttle is more responsive the faster you push the more it goes. But at the same time it isn't enough sensitivity to hurt anything on the car.

As I was warned you can easily outdrive you stock break package as well as suspension! I will be upgrading to the FE3 strut package this weekend and we will see how much better she handles the tune then.

In normal mode it is snappy, but the beast truly comes alive in sport mode! The harder you try and push the car, it keeps trying to give you more. From a stand still it is quite easy to roast the tires off the car now

All in all I am vary pleased with the tune and I know Will Overkill is working on some new stuff for the tune so can't wait to see what he comes up with this time!!

Nice right up. Amazing what a tune does for these cars. I haven't yet had the privilege or riding in a V6 so I have no idea how big of a jump it is from stock tuning, but I'm sure it must feel great.

It's nice to hear that there are so many good reviews about this tune. Jrokx is there anything you were dissatisfied with or disappointed with? Would you recommend getting the tune now or waiting for the update?

I would say go for it! If anything it will be for the ECU and if needed that is super easy to change so not to much to do there! But so far I love it.

I just finished putting the FE3 struts in the car so now to wear them in. If you get my drift

I got the tune as well and right away I felt a huge difference, Im yet to try the sports mode I was impressed already. I also noticed my gas mileage adding up and saving me fuel and money since i commute 75 miles round trip sometimes. Im really glad it worked thanks, Will Rishworth, at Overkill motorsports. I've order a cai and im looking into the exhaust and headers would love some feed back on cams... Please and thanks.

There is cam package available through MACE however there is no tune that has access to the cam settings to adjust them for our V6s to work properly/ get the most out of them. This is coming from Will at Overkill and Steve at MACE

Thinking about purchasing this tune soon...BUT
Currently I have this problem:

I am finding brake dust on all my rims. My front brakes definitely need to be replaced...they are not squealing yet but you can see the pad is not as thick as it should be. The steering wheel shakes when I brake from high speeds (75+), to avoid the shake I have to really slam the brake pedal


Do I simply need new front brakes? Or is it my rotors? Also, is the brake dust coming from the type of material the brakes are made of?

What kind of brake/suspension set up do yall recommend?
