FAMS is running a special on tunes

Picking up a set of BE bearings from FAMS and they are running a special on s65 and s85 tunes: $599.00

You can email him at [email protected] for details.

Just thought I'd pass along the information to the community.

I’ve been running his tune for the last 20,000+ miles.

How does the tune fair generally?I've got eventuri and rpi scoops and changed my bearings and actuators 5k back. What gains could i expect on the FAMS tune?

I may get supercharged by end of the year... But not decided.

He can tune for the scoops and intakes.

Gains were noticeable over my previous tune.

No, I didnít dyno.

Our cars appear largely identical but for the FAMS tune I have on mine. Your seat-o-the-pants dyno will appreciate a subtle difference in power delivery. Mine seems to spin up faster. But, what you will notice most is the improvement to the gear changes. Smoother and what seems faster. Its all good all round tune. Worth the investment imho.

Cheers,
Matt

A video of when I recently installed my FAMS tune in 2016.

Sitting shotgun is @Revo , our designated driver, when ďThe PackĒ gets together and has cross-driven more of our s85s than I can remember.

The video proves nothing, other than another memberís reaction to the tune.

I was spinning my, then new, 305 PSSs.
