My questions with the tune is how does the tune actually install (I understand it plugs into obd2)? Can u revert to stock? And back and forth (warranty concerns)? Iíve searched and havenít found much other than people pegging 7200 rpms. Just looking for more in depth actual insight on UI.

Yeah RR has a handheld device which plugs into the OBD2 and can flip between tunes pretty easily. They could or someone with more knowledge than me could provide further details

+1 back in my sportbike days, there was always at least one person who would boast outlandish 1/4 mile run times after their tune (or carb kit) and new exhaust. They never showed up to the drag strip for a meet up NOR did they have any video or drap slips to verify their claims. That being said....

The power to weight ratio would be way off for the claim....unless he ripped a bunch of weight out of the car.

Yeah, he is an obvious troll, so lets get back to topic....
Sounds like most really like the tune, my only reservation comes from some people reporting the shift delay/tc slippage (causing the brief bouncing off the rev limiter in auto mode) when the 7200rpm rev limit is enabled on the 8 speed trans. Is there any way to get rid of that?

Im interested in this. It's not a huge deal to me if theres any shift delay or tc slippage but Im sure its pretty harmful after a while. Can someone from RR comment on this whether or not a fix is coming? Or was this an isolated event? Worst case scenario just dont use the extended rev limit.

I have an is300awd with the tune. Different car but same engine.
Aftera few emails back and forth with Simon he sent me a file with an aggressive high rpm tune that will bounce off the 7200 limiter and not shift in automatic, a less aggressive one that sometimes shifts in automatic at 7200 and sometimes bounces off the limiter once or twice and a third tune with stock rev limit that shifts basically just like stock in automatic and bounces off the 6600rpm limiter with manual and TC off.
I've only really used the stock shifting one but it's nice to have options.

I bought the headers for retail from RR. The headers are worth it more than any other performance upgrade (supercharger is bad ***, but super spendy). It will make your exhaust quite a bit louder and add some rasp (depending on exhaust).
