This is precisely why I am always skeptical of real world performance changes because a dyno test said so. There are many ways to manipulate a dyno test. There is no way to manipulate trap speed...

Yes, they do. It isn't inexpensive, but it definitely can do some fun things, like remove the top speed limiter, change base throttle response curve, and produce more power with a sharper tune. ...

Yes, and at one point Novel was working on a tune for LHD cars. It has not made it to market.

iCode, Novel, and SARD offer a compelling tune for RHD cars. As has been true for many years, there are no other options for LHD cars.

It doesn't look like the kind of impact likely to significantly alter lap times for something like Lightning Lap. Giving more room to pass and not changing the racing line means any car in a time...

Lexus needs to do the same thing they did with the IS-F. A road show driving event in major cities around the country. Even better if they can offer a full day as they did with the IS-F so...

We all know Lexus knows how to make that engine sing. They proved it in the CCS-R at Thunderhill. Providing a detuned version for the media is just asking to get Kerriganed.

Not exactly. ISF001 has is right here:



The 2011 IS-F Lightning Lapped at 3:05, and with the subtle changes between 2011 and 2014, I would expect the 2014 to be another second or two quicker. ...

C&D Lightning Lap showed up in the mail. The RCF release was far too late for inclusion. I look forward to seeing how the RCF stacks up in the next one. C&D had high praise for the IS350 F Sport,...

I have PSS 245s on the front now. 275s are showing up at the door tomorrow. They're all going on a set of 2014 wheels. I doubt I'll have any issues with that.

I wish I'd done it myself even though it qualified for warranty. They did such a poor job of cleaning up the engine undercover, I thought it was still leaking a week later.
