Good to see you are working on the revisions very quickly and bringing the HP/TQ for Tyron.

The torque peak at around 5500rpm fits with all other results so far.

I am impressed and I like to hear owners view of the V 9 :mrgreen:

Edward is the v4 tune result plotted on that graph based on raptor headers and exhaust mods with stock intake, or stock everything including exhaust?

It's the tune before the intake was change to Raptor cai. So yes. All mods were committed on v4.

I have pounded my Liberty up the Gillies Range - Far North Qld - (20mins of continuous action) here a few times testing the RAM, headers and tune combo - I haven't ever posted about it. The combo of mods now means the motor is more than what the chassis/suspension can put to use - and that's a good thing, no gutless feelings at all

Just looked up pictures on what the Gillies Range looks like - looks very similiar to what I'll be driving tonight! :-)
Will report back on the weekend on thoughts.

That's pretty impressive then Ed. Roughly 10% increase in peak torque and 11% increase in peak power. I guess the headers may contribute to the ability to get this much of a gain? All from 'just an intake'.

The gain that you see there is from the intake. The car came to me with Raptor headers. The car is running poor gas.

Take a look of my tuning if the Raptor headers here:- viewtopic.php?f=53&t=25591

I believe this same car most likely with out the headers etc would most likely be way under 170whp. I would love to see this same car on better gas.

Here's some thoughts after having a decent drive:

- I didn't think I'd feel it, but yes, you feel the torque. I can leave the car in I drive in 6th gear and climb inclines I would have to stick into 5th previously.
- I drive is even more usable than before. Running the car totally stock, I probably spent about 25% of time in I drive or not use it at all. Now I'm quite happy leaving the car in I mode.
- I've taken the inserts out of the mufflers - the exhaust does sound different - car sounds unbelievable now, really, really good.
- Fuel wise - Before I drove the car harder, I was around 8.0l/100km. That's after about 60km, I'd say on a longer trip, it would be around 8.6ish.

Overall - I'm tickled pink and extremely happy with the mods and the tune. I'm still maybe thinking it could use a little improvement, but that's mainly with idle, otherwise running very awesome.

I got the wife to drive the car - she last drove it before any modifications (so stock). She drove it yesterday whilst I was standing on the road wanting to hear the car. The car sounds amazing now - I do believe that intake has changed the tone and def for the better.

She really noticed the difference and thinks the car is the bees knees now, she loves to drive it.

By the way - with running better gas, that is a tricky one. I know I'm not putting the best gas in, but as an example, where I gassed up today, they only had 91 and 95. My only option was to put 95 in it. I don't really want a tune that is dependant on a really good gas when I don't have that option on refueling the car sometimes. You can get 98 from Gull and BP here and you can actually get E85 - but only in Auckland.

In just 8 days time this product has its second birthday since it was a concept!!

The amazing results it is producing are a result of a solid R&D program just like with the headers.

Having a completely upgraded exhaust is a must if you want 10/10th of what his product can give.

STAGE 4 RAM INTAKE - to the world :mrgreen:

Tim, any chance this kit would work on a 5th gen H6?

I'd love to give it a try.

Thats fine, as long as the intake piping would mate up, I can make my own airbox.
