Utune has an option of 91oct and 93oct. So yes. You do need either one to have the car running right.

Great thread! Thanks for posting.

The UTUNE programmer is now available for certain 2013 Optima & Sonata vehicles.

There are currently 4 or 5 members with 2013 models running the tune. 3 of which are on this forum!

Also I think the HP gains in the two last tunes are not accurate. Unless I missed a dyno sheet showing those kind of gains somewhere.

Yea, got a message from someone on my facebook group Thetaii Turbo Performance.

Saying they were working on it. Also saw a post saying Diablo Sport is gauging interest.

Only a matter of time fellas. 12 sec ET's draw a lot of attention FAST!!!

2.0TGDI is about to enter the mainstream like the BMW/Audi platforms......Soo exciting

What VIN #? Or is it more if it is an early 2013? Mine is an early 2013, I bought it I believe July of 2012.
