Why worthless? It's just advance information ... Again, we just started working on it.

You can imagine similar numbers to the Evora S Stages (to begin with ), several dyno charts around...

what is a tune.. 10-20hp? why not change pulley and tune.... would actually make a diff versus just tuning out the safety curve.

Who says it's "tuning out the safety curve"?
That's definitely NOT the fact.

Also the 2Xhp more without boost increase on stock hardware are not the only benefit, you can ask every Evora owner that got a tune. It's also about drivability.

Anyway, the pulley cannot be changed, PLUS the 1320 charger is already at its rpm limit... Otherwise it would be possible to build a crankshaft pulley but to change that, you'd need to take out the engine... Makes no sense on the 1320 for obvious reasons.

@kixo. You mean for the 2ZZ? It's available all the time, it's just a custom tune as nearly "everyone" wants or has a slightly different setup.

Good news! Looking forward to the results ;-) Maybe you can post some accelleration numbers compared to stock when finished. Is there a stage 2 in progress?
