My bad, thought he was talking about the 2 not the 2 plus.

The car is a beast now... I've only had it for a day and the weather was crap, so I still have to thoroughly bash it like a redheaded step brother...

I put it on mine just a few days ago. On 2nd gear it felt great on a lower rpm and responded a better vs the stock tune. The shift light indicator is a cool feature.
Earlier in the day I flashed my car with Adams 93oct tune I just literally put it on and it feels like the stock tune maybe a bit better. 2nd gear doesn’t feel like the Cobb tune. Going. To give it another 30 miles maybe it needs a break in period to learn the car I dunno. Is still need to datalog this tune. Hoping it feels better and faster when its revised.
Anyone experience both tunes and what are your thoughts?

I've had 3 different custom tunes so far. I've datalogged/vdyno'd each of them. The cobb 93 actually is my favorite, I feel it has the best drive-ability but you give up some power, not a whole lot though.
My v-dyno results:
Could you elaborate on what "best drive-ability" actually means?

Yes, I did 3+ revisions with each tuner. I feel like it may be contributed to most tuners just wanting WOT pulls to tune, vs partial throttle pulls, etc.
I'm also running COBB Stage 2+ with all the required supporting mods, while waiting for a custom tune. I am genuinely impressed with how this drives. Like
mentioned, it drives like stock with the torque targeting, but just with more power. I like it to be more "punchy" so I'm stoked for the custom tune.
I tried the cobb stage 2 , dont know why but it felt terrible and sluggish. Went back to my other which was much better. Their claims of 22% hp and 20% tq increase claims defiently didnt surface in my logs. Maybe it needed more time but left it for 100 miles then gave up.

It definitely has an effect on sound, as the exhaust is noticeably quieter in normal mode compared to the other modes. What effect (if any) does having one side of the exhaust closed have on performance or economy?
