Updated Track Cal is installed, no more issues.

Update on my car, all is well, love the Track Cal and will never go back to stock. Occasional detonation under the right throttle "roll-in" conditions but not enough to make me want to activate the octane adjust feature just yet. I have noticed also the occasional "re-set" of the lopey idle back to the smooth idle for another 2 minutes if I'm "lugging" the car in a parking lot too much. Probably a default in the program or a "my-fault" for lugging the engine too much.

I got tired of the pinging and activated the octane adjust feature. (In CA we only have 91) The car no longer pings and it runs a bit snappier, runs better all-around. I'm sure this has everything to do with detonation causing the knock-sensors to remove timing. I'm not going to lie I thought the feature would have made it slower but it feels like it did just the opposite. ...I'm curious if anyone else can chime in on similar results??

Anyone have any dyno numbers or track times with the octane adjust on and off, when running 91 octane? I imagine with 93 octane it would definitely make a difference.

Better video than the last.

~SOUND IS VERY QUIET, TURN UP YOUR VOLUME AND THE VOLUME ON THE VIDEO ITSELF. Sounds best if you have an updated sound system on your computer.

I held the gears longer so you can hear the difference in the engine braking on decel with the Track Cal Tune. You can also hear a hint of the lopey idle before I take off.
