If the Custom features are something you NEED. Then tell your tuner you want THAT version.
The Off-the-Shelf tune, does NOT include all features.

===============================================
- ECUTEK Tips -
===============================================

Make sure you have a good working relationship with the tuner you select.
  • Sebastian @ Specialty Z does an excellent job of tuning and customer service.
  1. Take advantage of the Adjustable traction control option, via Temp gauge hi-jack.
  2. Take advantage of low / med / high tune for different temperatures
  3. Have the throttle response changed to linear (stock is wacky)

just wondering if you can transition from " Off The Shelf Tune " to " Custom tune " by just paying the difference in price and using the same tuning software kit?

Let say I am all stock now with Off the shelft tune, then after a few months , I decided to modify performance hardware and want a custom tune.

I am curious what they mean by adjustable traction control. I wonder if they are able to adjust it to allow a little more slip? Would be nice for those damp cold mornings since right now it is so invasive the first thing I do when I get in the car is turn it off.

yeah, I'm not boosted and anytime I drive hard my lights are flashing and it slows down the motor. Even if there is very minimal slip. Seems the VDC is VERY conservative.

You're right, it is.

And yes, if you get the custom tune version you can have an adjustable-level traction-control system. Seems almost worth it just for that. *scratches chin

I will def let the group know how the e-tune goes, presuming i find the $650 anytime soon. Just hope i'm not another beta tester for products.
