    I have heard a lot about this as well but it seems Powercihp wanted to test before releasing it in the USA. Also, the universal view seems to be that this software absolutely takes things to the next level.

    I'm curious how you even heard about it?

    Oh I see, that is how you heard.

    Basically, the new tune is just better all around from what I hear. It performs even better.

    I don't have any hands on experience and haven't seen dynos for it, but just word of mouth says that they can't wait to release it here. The testing has been taking place in Europe.

    One other thing I wanted to tell you.. the faceoff will be taking place. The Stage 3 software is something they want to be a part of it. There results will be reported here.

    I am not sure where you heard this as I have heard the opposite from a direct source.

    From what I have heard, the software alone has provided incredible gains that are unmatched in S65 tuning. PC is going to stay quiet until testing is completed and some North American testing would have to take place as well.

    There is no better direct source then who you and I know. Someone who has tested it 3rd party and wrote the original and reversed engineered first hand the US S65 hex software is a good start. Click here to enlarge

    I too, was excited for this, until I heard further details about what it entailed.

    I will hold my breath for 3rd party dyno results.

    Hmm.

    I guess we will wait and see what happens. I'm excited to see what comes of this.

    you mean you wouldnt hold your breathe for 3rd part dyno result(s), right? because im assuming you believe that this tune takes it too far...

    but i know of one person who had the tune and did a dyno and he witnessed the 40rwhp on a stock car....

    the tuning takes it to a new level and lets see what happens!

    Slow your roll, son. I've tested files for PC for almost 3 years now. I've known about this file for almost a year now. I know all about the development, seen the in-house dyno graphs, and what S3 does and most importantly doesn't do. Do you know what's been changed?

    Do you still think I don't know anything? Click here to enlarge

    As an S2 customer I'm interested in more info on the S3 stuff. How is it they're able to possibly squeeze so much power out with this new version? I just find it hard to believe there's so much left on the table.

    Keep in mind, that even if true, those gains would have been obtained using 98 ron gas = 94 US gas.
