Well i just got my tune done today and was very happy with the work that Dale did. I was a little unhappy that my SV6 only managed 167rwhp standard but with a end result of 192rwhp i was very happy with the gains. 25hp gain!!

On the road the biggest difference is the off the line torque that is now available, only a fraction of throttle and it pulls hard off the line. The 0-100 time seems very similar but the changes are alot more aggressive like a shift kit has been put in (5 speed auto). Up high it does rev a little bit quicker but nothing major, the midrange though is very good now. Over all it makes for a good cruiser with a little more poke off the line. Will report back after i do a fuel consumption comparison.

Yeah im happy with the gains but i think i need to get a compression test done as 167rwhp standard is quite low as it should be about 190.... Though Dale did say the alloytec's are hit and miss and he has seen plenty of sv6's only pull 150rwhp stock.

$880 includes before and after dyno printouts. Well worth the money if you want down low driveablity and better fuel consumption. Just don't expect it to turn into a v8 lol.

that sounds about right, remember the 190 is at the flywheel, not the wheels as it was tested

yeah i know but RWHP is usually the equivalent to FWKW. This means if the engine puts out 190kw at the flywheel it should have 190rwhp.

Well i got there at 8.30am and was out the door by 10.30am. It could take a little longer depending on how busy they are i guess.

After driving the car a little more in Active select mode i am even more impressed!!, it is revving out quicker right though the range and when i launch it off from a standing start it squats down spins both wheels for a moment off she goes. Sooo much more torque down low :p Now i just have to stop having fun and see how fuel consumption is affected as the car was sitting at about 13.5:1 stock though Dale richened it up to 13:1 right across the rev range under full acceleration. Im guessing he leaned it out under light throttle loads???
