Fast Attack Motorsports (FAMS) Tune Review - Dyno & Datalogs
I must say i was amazed to have my tune load on the car in 30 seconds
Beats the hell out of waiting 10 mins and worry my unstable laptop with windows might restart at anytime for no reason (it frequently does!)
It was a pleasure using the pod, really easy and no misshaps.
My previous tune i had a very hard time due to no manual or info on the driver signature issues and pc software.
I will wait till i get more driving time for a comprehensive review but i found the following:
Shifting at lower throttle slightly quicker and smoother
P500 sport feels like 0-30% throttle quite touchy, compared to stock where it feels touchy the whole throttle range. This reason i prefer p500 only with dsc off
Acceleration, its very refined and smooth, it is more powerful but deceiving because of smoothness
Idles best it ever has
Smg shifting at full throttle, well its pretty crazy.
I always drive my m mode with dsc off and shift 4 in manual (smg).
Now 4 at wot shifts like mode 5-6.
Ive backed it off to shift mode 3, its quicker and firm but not brutal.
Its definitely got a better balance of shift speed and brutality. Something stock did not. It was either slowish or brutal s6.
Also jim informed me im the first production euro tune with vanos and smg improvements
Jim, does the pod allow error reading and clearing? I didnt want to play around too much
Also does this ecu have a count and lock the ecu if too many tunes loaded? Thanks
