Excuse me "throttle lag"

The whole tuning section is a war between uprev and ecutek, the fact that uprev maps didnt address the throttle response/lag...

Thats just what ive read

Also i know for a fact my own Z has that lag. Takes a few mili seconds to actually catch on when flooring it, or even not flooring it... Still takes a min to get up

They just recently put out an update with launch control, VVEL timing, closed loop stuff, and plenty more. Its in the ecutek thread somewhere on here.

The throttle lag is just a characteristic of electronic throttle control cars. Ive heard of dudes having better response with either uprev or ecutek though.

Mike, you might look into ecutek since you track the most out of all of us. Several members have seen 20whp gains over uprev, one guy even had +100ftlbs of torque (he was FI though, if im not mistaken).

I don't really notice it if there is any lag there. It's not the same as a throttle cable car that's for sure, but I'm just used to it I guess.

Justin are you talking base maps? Or actual custom tunes that people have gotten done? I had a professional tuner dyno tune my car so I don't' know if another software would necessarily would change how much power the car made. It would depend on if ecutek has more variables that you could change.

I'm not going to go back and have my car retuned though, that was a significant amount of money that I don't want to spend again lol.

Basically, they differ like this:

UpRev modifies your maps...but doesn't replace them. Meaning that the UpRev maps are more of a "suggestion", and basically lets the car decide. From what I have read, UpRev doesn't do anything for VVEL timing either.

Ecutek changes your base map completely, there is no choice for the car to make. Also, ecutek maps have complete control over your VVEL timing.

Its been a minute since I read up on this, so you might wanna fact check me or ask more people, but im fairly confident about that. I am 100% confident that people who have had UpRev have had gains going to ecutek, its all I ever read about when people go from one to another. But I don't blame you for not wanting to blow more cash on it, I just cant wait to pay this car off so I can start modding the **** out of it lol.

Its as if it has to rev an extra 3000 before it actually kicks in

Yeah when you try to mash the accelerater you'll notice that you don't launch immediately it "lags" then kicks in a half second to a second later...

Thanks fellas. I got now. You guys are talking about from a "dig". I noticed lag in my car a few days ago when it got up to 100 degrees. I'll be talkin to a tuner in Seattle later on
