Hi guys. Im wanting yo tune the boss with an AED tune. Ive talked with Shaun Perry but id like to hear from anyone who is currently using an AED tune for street use. I dont track the car. What id like to know is the increase in power/performance noticeable? I dont want to spend 600+$ and be left with a "i think its faster" feeling. I currently have just a few mods. Accufab 84.5mm TB, Airaid PJ CF Intake (using the insert to keep air/ratios) deleted cats and roush axle back. With the Airaid intake would i remove the insert with a tune? Anyway, any feedback on the wether the tune for street is so so or significant in terms of power/performance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks everyone
Richard.

Can't help you with the tune question but you should have it tuned without the Venturi insert you're running on your Airaid CAI.

Hi guys.

I currently have just a few mods. Accufab 84.5mm TB, Airaid PJ CF Intake (using the insert to keep air/ratios) deleted cats and roush axle back.
Richard.


Richard:

I see your currently running the OEM Tune with cat deletes. Does this set up cause CEL issues?

the CEL comes on occassionally. i have a code reader and just clear it. it wil come if driving at hwy speeds for awhile. this is one of the reasons im considering tuning it. but dont spend several hundred dollars just to turn off a sensor. lol. i bought the car used and the cats were already deleted.

I have the AED tune on my stock 2013.  No engine or air intake mods at all with only GT500 Mufflers  The previous owner had the AED tune done by Shaun and delivered the car to me with the stock tune and track key loaded and with a SCT tuner loaded with the AED tune.

 

I drove the car for about 8 months with mostly just the Red Key.  Then last summer I emailed Shaun and we chatted about the tune.  Shaun remember the previous Owner from Oklahoma (member here) and walked me through the upload and what to expect.  Here is my "seat of the pants" impression:

 

The AED tune is just below the Red Key in terms of track performance.  The car is much easier to drive than with the Red Key.  The Red Key has much more engine braking which I found annoying for street driving.  The Red Key lopey idle was not for me.  The car accelerates much smoother and more linear with the AED tune.  The mid range especially just pulls and pulls.  The exhaust sound is amazing.  While not lopey idle, it is much better with the AED tune.  Nice rumble on deceleration without the car pulling back from engine braking.

 

Now granted all this is "seat of the pants" as I have not dyno'd the car.  While I don't believe you will see any significant HP or Torque gains from the tune alone, you should see drivability gains and a smoother power throughout the RPM range.  At least I did.

 

The best part about the AED is you can data log your car and Shaun will adjust the tune accordingly.  I have yet to do this though. 

 

For me the Red Key was too aggressive for a weekend driver.  If I was going to the track the car, then the Red Key would be perfect as it was intended.  The AED tune (for me) is the perfect blend of performance and drivability for my weekend canyon carver.  Shaun is about 3 hours away from me, and at some point I will drive up to him for an upgrade and to meet the guy.  I have not heard of anyone unhappy with AED tune or Shaun on any forum.

 

You should be able to get your tune tailored for your mods, and see some nice gains.

 

Good luck . . .

Calif boss302, have you been over to see Shaun yet? I was intrigued by your posts I too would like a one key solution somewhere between the silver and red keys. Do you need to revert back to stock tune for smog checks? I only live two hours away from AED and am considering a dyno tune on my stock Boss except of Corsa Extreme axle backs.

Have the Trackey and Corsa Xtreme mufflers. Just me, but I don't find the TK that aggressive and it is 50 state legal so can't be that advanced. The lopey idle feature can be shut off with those also. I would go with an advancement at least equal with TK but not so much that it would be an emissions issue.... It is a Boss 302, now my Buick is a different attitude.Attached File  image.jpeg   182.9KB   0 downloads

Rich B, the lopey idle is the part of TK I like the best! Being an old time wrench like yourself, it takes me back to the 60's with all the fuel-rich goodness that went with high lift/long duration cams and overly jetted carbs. M-mmm- can almost smell it and my eyes are starting to tear up.
