    Stupid consistent so far. The DFCO patch is still stuck in there. It feels like a keeper for now.

    It feels all the same. I am trying to be blind about it, but it just feels consistent through every gear and while shifting.

    any errors, issues, lack of throttle, if it feels weird from gear to gear, etc.

    If it's overall driving smooth, doing well, not super quirky or throttle acting odd that's great

    It is all of the latter. For me, the original Betas could be called linear. Just a nice form of linear, which was killer compared to stock.

    This tune, I would say that it is linear with a huge helping of consistency and what feels like a cable throttle in every gear.

    Lately, I have been hanging on to 1.05 FOB because I liked that low rev punch. While this test tune lacks some of that in 1st and 2nd, it has more in 3rd through 6th. Those upper gears feel the same as the lower gears, which is stellar.

    For a while, I wondered about FOMA, where we would have FOB in the lower gears, but some Atkinson for MPGs in 5th and 6th. But, after a few runs with this tune, I think that One Map and full consistency trumps all of that.

    Thanks again for putting this tune out there to test.

    Other notes:

    - The DFCO patch is still there. :woot:
    - The Rev Limit was about 6,300 or so? But unlike FOB, it snuck up on me and was still pulling hard.

    Sorry! But, you can get in on this.

    What were you seeing with TS and the update tries?

    This patch is pretty easy to make, just took a long time to figure out.
    So I'll release for 2019s tomorrow to test

    That's easy! Don't hit the TiS button. You want to stay offline for diagnostics and monitoring.

    For the TSB tune once you have TS installed, just double click on the CUW file without launching TS.

    Please do follow the tips and cautions in the MT Update thread since the TSB flashes can temporarily brick your ECU.

    I snagged this from a different thread. Is the link in the TSB pdf go to the CUW file?
