Garage List
My 93oct ESS tune treats me perfect. Flawless AFR #'s mean they've taken their time getting it right. I'm not sure how 'conservative' it is, as you review what you want out of the tune with AJ ahead of time (based on ur mods, fuel availability, & how much u want to push the envelope).

By conservative I meant the AFR! Which is critical IMO

Some of the mysterious silent parties from the first group buy may not have even gotten their tune yet. I'm one if those. Too many other things going on.

That will be the deciding factor for a final commitment on this for me.

Thing that I find strange is that there were about 18 guys in on the first GB
& so very little in the way of feedback.
if anybody's interested, i posted my experiences with the tune in the original GB.

i'll preface this by saying i might have been a freak case where my car just did not like any of the files i was getting from evolve and that their customer service is absolutely top notch. plenty of e46 guys couldn't be happier with their tunes.







my baseline that i checked right before installing the evolve tune was 286whp/225tq on a dyno dynamics on OEM flash. you can't really compare a dynodynamics to a mustang...but AFR was way off/ hp disparity to baseline was insane/and it didn't drive pretty at all.

anyways, i'm back on OEM flash and it's driving superb. i'm sure a custom dyno tune might clean it up a bit, but it behaves great right now. and i mayyy have found a way to pass emissions :whistle:

Nothing to be sorry about. I just mean I have been too busy. My car is up and running. I will eventually get the tune and hope my car likes it.
