Not really. A good shop might be able to do this though
Yeah I thought so. The shops that I've done different builds with have tuning software to tune other cars but nothing that works on ours.. bummer 🙄

I'm probably going to get royally flamed for this but I've been running with for a while now, PLP+ stage 4 handheld tuner, and it works. I was surprise to see that after about a week, there was a decent jump in power for sure. Might be something for others to look into cuz it worked for me.

Not sure what that is

Since OV is out, this was a last resort, one time thing. Going to the Dyno soon to test: 3 on, 3 off, take averages, compare results.

So does this do anything? Do you notice a difference? Does this have to be tweaked by the owner to extract any power or does it do it by itself?

I have headers, CAI and exhaust so I'm wondering how it works to get the most of the mods. I looked on their website but it doesn't say much on how it works.
