talking Calling Out Houston M5's on Eurocharged Tune

Myself and other members would love the opportunity to do a "Mexico Run" comparison between the tunes from Evolve and Eurocharged

I am in Houston today until Friday afternoon. If anyone running the Eurocharged Tune or Pulley and Tune is down to meet me and have some fun comparison, I'm down to make it happen

My current mods are simply RPi Intake and Evolve-R Stage 1 Tune.

I'll also try to make my boss/friend bring out his 2012 CTS-V. Even if you don't have the mods I'm requesting, I'm still down to meet up and run. Be sure to bring your friends too if they want to roll

Understand that this is all in good fun. I have much respect for Eurocharged and don't intend to make this some type of silly shop war. I am 1000% happy with my current setup and love to play on the highway as our beasts were designed
PM me is you want to make this happen

That's the goal

I literally just re-loaded my tune last night and have yet to put hardly any adaption miles on it. I'll go beat on it after work today. Hopefully someone takes me up on my offer before I head out of town though.

All I can say is it feels like an angry gorilla on an adrenaline shot with the tune. Man I missed my Evolved Beast.

Take care Indy

Hope you find some takers - I think Eurocharged has their shop in Houston - must be a customer or two about.

I too would like to see the comparison. I suspect it will be similar, but don't know that. You have so many other factors involved (ex. Driver) which can affect the results. Maybe get the drivers to switch cars!

Post if anybody takes you up on it, for sure.

I REALLY doubt you will see a difference, it will come down to the driver not the tune, the potential differences are probably in the range of 2 or 3 HP this is not something that will show up in a driving comparison.

It would be nice to have a meet and do some comparisons, but unfortunately it's impossible for me during the weekdays.
The best performance comparison would be to register for a track day, and usually we have a few of the Houston folks participate.

True, I'd like to get plenty of runs in to give as solid of conclusion as we can gather. Switching cars is a good idea, it would be nice to compare the seat of the pants feeling as well

If your familiar with my threads, you know I'm going to post for everyone's viewing pleasure

I think so too. As stated above, I want to get plenty of runs in to gather the best conclusion possible. Remember this is all in good fun
