    Exclamation Tuning is in process!!!

    I SPOKE WITH THE GUYS FROM PowerAXEL and they are working on tuning as we speak. They're almost done with the Sonata 2.0t and will be starting on the Optima shortly. Even though the Sonata and Optima have the same engine there ECU's send out different data. Hopefully it wont be long. They will be making tunes for stock and upgraded cars. I cant wait and I now y'all cant either... Just thought I'd share this with everybody....

    Not sure but they are making a tune for stock cars and also for upgraded Optima 2.0t. Stock tuning probably wont be as as much or as sufficient as people with upgrades. For instance; TurboBack Exhaust, Charge Pipe w/ Synchronic BOV, NP Intercooler, NP Intake and K&N Filter. You can get all these parts at...

    im betting they will do a conservative tune at 18-19 psi which will probably make a 30hp increase and then do a 20-22psi tune that could make as much as 60-75hp and 80 trq increase. Its a guess, whether the motor can handle it or not is up to how you guys drive and what material the motors internals are made of.

    link>?

    Is it the one that was posted in July? If so is that with a tune or without?
    I cant tell from what they said. It looks as if they just did a baseline and then threw a ton of bolt ons on and re ran on the dyno to see if there was an increase.
