VY SS Ute
Im keen to hear from anyone who has had a mafless tune. I had my VY series 2 SS ute Mafless tuned. Already had K&N airfilter, Extractors, high flow cats, 2-1/2"cat back system, car only done 12k. Pre tune only pulled 180kw post tune 212kw. I drove car prior to getting figure and was blown away how good it felt and the responsiveness and pick up but :supersad: when i was told only got 212kw, good gain but still a poor figure i reckon. Any 1 else had similar or have i been jipped! Car does have low kms and still tight but 212kw from a GEN3 is almost laughable!
Any feedback at all welcome!!!!!:bang:

thats 212kw at the wheels which is somewhere in the vicinity of 265-270kw at the motor which is a total of 20kw gained over std, that is a bit lower than others i have heard of with similar mods but maybe with the higher output already from holden the mafless doesnt gain as much, but the proof is in driveability

Thanks for the heads it was certainly a shock, guess i was thinking of all they hype around the 300kw magic figure and hoped to come close.

I had my SV8 auto tuned with no modifications at all and still got 205rwkw! (Dyno Dynamics Shootout mode) I know there's a bit of difference between dynos but that does sound a little disappointing. I know I would have been a little disappointed if I'd spent that amount of cash.

Perhaps try a different dyno - even if you don't pay for additional tuning and just do a few runs to compare.
