So I finally got my Evolve Tune installed... Everything is great, you can tell a huge difference! The butt dyno definitely feels a big difference! Wish I would have gotten a baseline dyno when I first got the car...100% stock


Now the bad part... after I installed it I was driving around ~10 miles, got on the highway and as soon as I got on. An X5M pulls along side of me and blows my doors off

An EPIC tune is in my sights. This is my baseline with an aFe intake, AP Gen 1 headers, a Magnaflow cat-back, Evo-sport power pullies, a lightweight flywheel, and a clean MAF...

That baseline seems a bit low with all those modifications. I would have guessed right around 300 give or take a few...

I was actually going to buy EPIC at first, but to be honest... I felt as if I received poor customer service. They tried forcing me to buy the Race Tune which is obviously overkill... and they seemed to be irritated by my number of questions... so I asked the same if not more questions to Jamie at Evolve and he seemed very helpful and a good guy.

...Guess customer service just goes a long way.

Here's the cobra's dyno sheet, for kicks and giggles. I expected it to be a little higher I guess. And yes, the carb needs tuning. I know. Those afrs

Its a basic 460, those are good numbers. Stock they are like 250...and that afr is fine too.

Was at a shop all day with a buddy's 67 mustang with a 468ci, baselined 411hp, and got it tuned to 542hp with some things left to fix. Then theyc an throw on the 350hp fogger setup and hope for about 900hp to the wheels.

Also got my truck tuned today, 10psi 4x4 launch spun a bit and took of....20psi launch spun alot and started hopping so i backed off, im excited to get more done to it!

its not a basic 460. Its got super cobra jet heads, 10.5:1 compression pistons, an insane cam, a holly 850cm 4 barrel, and some pretty nice engine management hardware.

Customers service is great but I'm paying for power not a tug job.

Meh... Its all here say... They are all similar in the end. Take it to a dyno and get it tuned specifically for your car then possibily. I think out of the box its apple to apple.

Its like saying one 600cc motorcycle is better than the next. In the end they are identical and comes down to the driver

Negative ghost rider, thats a basic 460. Last video i heard of it, it had a smooth idle, scj heads are production heads, and how does it have a carb AND "engine management hardware"? Talking about an MSD ignition box?

Anywho, cool car and decent motor, just dont expect much out of a tractor engine without 6k in heads alone.
