Wonder if DME Tune would be willing to provide both burble+ and burble- profiles so one can compare.

How does your tuned car sound compared to a LCI 750 (presumably stock sport exhaust)?

Mine is even quieter since I don't have the m package. I plan to get an exhaust system this Friday. I'll post a video hopefully this weekend.

I have not talked to DME since they did the stage 1 tune but I swear this car has gotten faster after 500 plus miles. Don't know if there is a learning feature which takes miles to become fully effective. Flat out full throttle performance seems quicker than right after the flash. Combined with my change over to Michelin non run flats this is a different car. A side benefit is when driven normally there has been no change in gas milage.

The car does have adaptation and after few hundred miles it's adjusting so it's very possible

Glad you're enjoying it. It's a different beast all together

Just got my exhaust done two weeks ago. Sounds amazing. I'll post a link here shortly.

I am actually thinking seriously about the cat delete down pipes now. When I asked about the DME tune I was told that the stage two HP & TQ numbers were with a cat delete down pipe so I am wondering what tuning changes are in the stage 2. My information is that the down pipe alone is worth 25 to 30 HP. I know it is a disease I have had for over 50 years.

Someone on Facebook is doing the downpipes and stage 2

Keep in mind, I addition to downpipes, you'll want to change the plugs and gap them. I'm sure Mo will agree. I personally why would love downpipes, I didn't want to max out my turbos a bad push reliability. It's too tempting. Plus emission challenges.

Is this the standard exhaust that we are hearing the video? That's loud compared to my 750!

DME Tuning is having Black Friday Sale at 20% off all tuning from now until 12/4. You can get another 5% off if you order through Auto Talent.

Installing stage 2 tune with DME tomorrow.
DPs are going in on Friday as well as new 295 PS4s on the rear.

Unfortunately gonna have to run stage 2 for a couple days on stock cats but Moe from DME said I should be fine. I'm not going to Dyno but I do have a draggy so I'll try to do some before and afters.

I do have a draggy yes. Car is noticeably faster but I haven't really pushed it yet because stock cats aren't coming off until tomorrow. I'll get some times measured over the weekend.

Perfect let us know. My draggy comes in Sunday and I need to decide between DME and Bootmod3

I don't believe BM3 supports our cars yet. That was last I heard about 30 days ago when I started my search. DME seemed to be the most reliable and easy to use tune. 20% off Black Friday sale right now means the stage 2 is about $1400. Stage 1 is around $1200 I believe.

I'll get some numbers up as soon as DPs and tires are on
