It is hard to explain. It is these little things here and there that make this tune very enjoyable. It is certainly nowhere near as strong as my custom tune but it is smoother, the throttle input is perfect IMO, the way the revs climb and drop, specially in 2nd and 3rd gears (where I spend most of my time), is also perfect. It sounds different too in a better way, hard to explain really. The car just feels happy and not over stressed if that makes any sense. It does register knock a bit more, but that is to be expected for an OTS tune but on the other hand who knows how much the sensors are desensitized with etunes...So the actual difference may not be as big as the AP screen would make you believe. I also think that there is a little more room left on the table in terms of power, which maybe easier on the clutch in the long run.
