I was smoked on the highway by a new range rover sport. We were rolling around 65 when I got on his bumper but he pulled away and kept pulling away even when I had my floor flat down. I stopped chasing around 100 but he was still going.

Re: Holy Schitt - RR SVR Ring in 8:14

Cool video, fast truck for sure (and I don't hate RRs with the same passion as A-kon), but let's not get carried away with 'Ring times.

Saw a post on a local forum showing a link to the same video, and the poster (also the forum admin') takes his Porsche GT3 to the 'Ring several times a year, and his question was (free translation):
"...Is the time on the 20.6, the 20.83, rolling start or from a standstill?..."
I don't get exacly what the 20.6 and the 20.83 are (never been to the Nurburgring myself), but I gather that we may not be comparing apples to apples...

Ok. Maybe your wheels are too heavy

Ok, good to know. I religiously kept my Trinity when I upgraded from the WK1 to the WK2, but I thought uploading tunes in the '14 was not possible, I understand from your post that it is possible but not 100% fail proof...
How much of a difference did it make? It did a big difference in my '07 Jeep SRT8, I can barely imagine how your '14 feels now.

My guess would be a Wayne model, since apparently it is not an SRT8...

Honest answer here. The can tune from diablo was a bit noticeable. Maybe placebo effect but I did pull off some decent zero to sixties. The johan tune is more noticeable as it feels different when it climbs through the higher rpms. It used to feel like it lost some power but now she pulls hard all the way up. Its still crazy hot here in Florida so my zero to sixty times suck. 4.7 to 4.9. I did pull of a 3.9 in december when I got the can tune on but then again it was 40 degrees out and no humidity. Supposedly johan said he tweaked my torque management and timing. So until I get some cold weather there is no apples to apples. But I am one of the few with no problems so im not updating my pcm software with any updates from stealership.

Re: Holy Schitt - RR SVR Ring in 8:14

I have the Diablo 93 canned tune loaded on my 14. I just loaded back to stock while the dealer updated all the PCM, TCM and body control modules. Should I be concerned about loading the Diablo tune back on now??!

Brother that would be a call I can't make. Email johan at diablo or call their customer service but I would just make sure before you locked something up that their update doesnt effect their software
