493 torque (42 lbs gained)
468 whp (20 whp gained)
Very nice numbers! I need to be careful around you... next thing I'll know my fuel system will need an upgrade!
Synergy charged me $578 dollars to do the install and updated my tune.
I was calculating to pay less than $400. But, whatever.
Labor at Synergy is a bit more expensive, but Rick does good work. You will also find that he does a very good job keeping-up on the tune.
I've stopped-in to get some extra work done (installed BMR sway bar end links) and he had a new tune to put on my car (updated transmission settings) and didn't charge me anything (I don't think he even charged me to install the end links).
Rick spent about 1 hour of dyno tuning. I thought he would have spent more time tuning but I'm guessing it was dialed in pretty good already and all he had to do was scale the new injectors.
Rick has tuned quite a few supercharged G8's, so it doesn't surprise me it didn't take much to get it dialed-in.
I honestly think there is more there.
I can feel the 40 lbs of torque gained. Runs pretty strong! Close to 500 lbs of torque is fun.
I felt like I should've cracked 500 rwhp though. I know I'm being a dyno queen
Rick is known for not pushing cars just to get numbers. Both in the tune and on the dyno. How are your tires feeling about the nearly 500lbs of torque?
Now it's time to hit the track with some Nor Cal folks
Sounds like it is about time!
Thanks Ike. Let's do it. I have to warn you, this will be the first time I go.
Just as a heads-up you will need a helmet (running faster than 14sec) and a SFI single layer jacket (due to the aftermarket supercharger). The last time I was at Infineon I didn't have a jacket, but they let me go because I had a long sleeve shirt on.
