Ecutek visconti tune

For those of you that have done it, what kind of changes have you noticed? Power gains? Idle improvement? things like that. I currently have a trd drop in, ark catback, and ark test pipe. just wondering if any of that would help me as well.

Great mid-range torque. Highway accelerations in 6th are very much improved now. I highly recommend a @Visconti tune. I have been very very happy with mine. Whenever I go forced induction, it will be whatever John is selling. Despite what people may say, customer service is great. He just has a take no shit attitude which I like.

Thanks..

I support a number of different turbo kits that are on on the market and about to be on the market..so you really wont be limited when you go forced induction

Best mod you can do. Much better than exhaust/intake mods which add next to nothing you can notice and may even cost you some horsepower. Visconti tune will wake your car up in every way. I've got the pump gas tune and I love it. Now I want e85.

Steps in this order:

1: Wait for Kit to be delivered
2: Kit Comes, Grin like a mofo
3: install software and drivers for cable and USB Key
4: Pull info and send it to john so john can create your license file and tune
5: Go to update software to download your license file and apply it
6: Connect cable and flash your car
7: Go for a drive and enjoy!

No in order to generate a license file, you need to send him your dongle ID (the security USB key) and the last 6 or vin. This allows them to generate a unique license file only for your car basically.

Fixed. You can install all the software and drivers before you even get the kit. Then you will be more ready for when you get the info from john. Just make sure to update the program when you get the kit (it should recommend you do this when you connect the car). And pull info means you have to send John the dongle id (6 digit letter/number combo from the usb dongle) and last 6 digits of your vin so he can put together the actual tune for your car.
