Re: Raptor ECU Flash

OK - So I loaded it up.
My tune is optimised for 98 RON, which is what I normally run.
I didn't take it far on the first run, but here's my first impressions.

1) Seems more responsive in low revs - driving slowly around the neighbourhood.
2) The transition thru 4000 RPM is smoother - less frantic. I think this is due to more power/torque below 4K.
3) Seems to have more power between 2 & 4K RPM
4) Rev limiter is set higher (6250 RPM at a glance). pulls smoothly all the way to the limiter. In gear acceleration is less effort.

All improvements are incremental - this is not a supercharger, just a refinement on the stock tune. I can't comment on fuel economy, because I gave it a bit of a flogging tonight & that run averaged out at 26L/100km (9MPG). On a run to work I'll usually average 13L/100km (18 MPG). My long term average is 15.2L/100 (15.5MPG) but I'm certainly no hyper miler...
Let's see how it goes over the next week or so.

Re: Raptor ECU Flash

Great to hear there’s clear differences even with the MT, was wondering how much the transmission tweaks factored in so now we’re getting an idea. Very cool keep us updated.

I'll get more of a feel for it over the next few days. Then maybe I'll downgrade it to see how that feels.

Hi Amaclach,
Are you in UAE? I got mine in Abu Dhabi but didn't get the chance to do sand off roading due to work.
Thanks,
Mohammad

Hi, yes I am, but I've not really been offroad since I've done the upgrade.
I'm overall happy with the tune. Might need a small tweak once Tim gets back from his break.
