You nor the tuner from that point will have absolutely 0 idea what the car is actually doing and how it is responding. Far from ideal, far from tuning support. See my point?
    Hmmmm... I don’t know, I’m tuned stage 1 with pops, so fun, no lag...
    Long road trips, hill climbs,(TORK oil pan)
    runs like a champ
    It would behoove me to clarify, I have more than 3 parts that add power..
    1-intake
    2-Exhaust
    3-Downpipe (catless)
    4-LPFP
    5-Upgraded core FMIC
    6-NST Pulleys
    7-Stage 1 tune
    8-60mm throttle body

    While I’m here I also want to plug for the Pierce Race oil cooler, since bolting that in, my VT power delivery is so consistent. Also the TORK EBCS works great for reducing lag!

    Cheers

    I own a 16' DCT everyone says beware of & yes i can confirm that the issues with the DCT are the only issues i've had. (3 flywheel's & 2 new transmissions within an 86k mile period) but that 100k mile warranty has blessed me indeed. Other than the transmission the car has given me no other issues mechanically or major.

    I have to say though, I turn out every manual Velo out there due to the DCT shifting quicker than a manual driver, but some will argue otherwise

    Did the dealership give you a hard time about your mods when doing the warranty repair?

    not until my 2nd transmission / 3rd flywheel replacement in which they claimed my 75a motor mount caused my transmission to have issues due to no slack & constant pressure on the Tranny?!?!?

    I didn't argue, I went home, searched everywhere for my oem mounts until i came on here & asked to buy someone's oem motor mounts lol luckily TyBardy came through and sent them to me for free.
