Why is everyone caught up with total HP? All that truly matters is the delta before tune and after. I get it might have been a "sick" RX8 but is one to assume if you had a "healthy " RX8 there would be no gains?
I pick my R3 up this week with a brand new motor, RB header, BHR ignition and BHR midpipe. Once engine has a few miles I will dyno on local dyno with these bolt ons, then later with Versatune.

As I have mentioned elsewhere here, we had our brand new Mustang MD-500 AWD dyno delivered Friday. We are in the process of installing it. Once it's installed, we will start grinding out pre-built tunes. Each tune will come with a before and after dyno sheet done on a healthy car and on a properly calibrated dyno. No BS. No smoke and mirrors. Just real HP gains.

That's great!!!! You might beat me to it, the local dyno is a AWD as well ( linked) had to use it on my Fiat Abarth when tuning that little rocket!!!

Smile fuel map for 25 pounds of boost

Any way you are able to create a 25 pounds boost fuel map? Our Cobb Accessport got stolen and we use 800cc x 4 with 2x 380cc injectors. Please let us know, thank you and best regards, mark angelo

Our new dyno mule!
We hope to have a performance tune for stock cars published in the next few weeks.

any data on this yet? Interested in seeing some healthy numbers! I've been running versatune for a while and it definitely pepped up the cars response and enjoyability of driving

We just got the car on Saturday. We need to do a health check and fix any issues, though it seems to run well with only 8k miles on a Mazda factory reman engine.

Would it be possible for you to include compression test results with the dyno charts?

Second NotAPreppie's request.

In case you need a compression tester: https://rotarycompressiontester.com/

So does Versatuner require flashing an entirely new tune or can you modify only certain parameters of the stock tune? For example, increase the rev limit and leave everything else stock.

IIRC you can copy the stock map so you can roll back when needed. Then you can probably make another copy and go wild with it.

No point to just increase the rev limit without modifying anything else, unless you just want bragging rights. Torque starts to rapidly drop off after 8500 RPM stock and it falls off a cliff after 9k RPM. You also risk apex seals coming into contact with the housing(usually you have some oil film between the two).

It might be pointless on the street/track, but it beats riding the limiter or having to shift up and right back down in autox. The extra few mph in 2nd would be helpful on many courses with the shorter gearing on the series II cars. I still have warranty through 2019 so won't do anything this year regardless but I'm looking at options for 2020+ if I keep the car.

You can edit any of the exposed tuning parameters, like fuel, spark, oil injection, rev limit, etc, You can make changes and save tunes just like you would edit a Word document. You need to flash the changes to the ECU each time you make a change for them to take effect.. At any time, you can roll back to a previous tune or to the complete factory stock tune that was backed up when you installed VersaTuner. Check out the demo to see what tables are exposed.

The first thing I did with mine was just to block the reoccurring CEL caused by the missing cat. Nice and simple.

Also I just happened to have a Versalink cable for sale 😁

I got rear oxygen CEL since I have a decat, should I just block it or install a new rear oxygen sensor?

What is the code? Is it catalyst efficiency or something specific to the O2 sensor? If it's catalyst efficiency, then just mask the code in tune customizer.

If it's P0037, then there's an electrical problem or failed O2 sensor. You can try replacing the sensor to see if it fixes it.
