Good things do indeed come in small packages!
I got my ECU back with it's new ZZP stage 1.0 tune!
Installing was literally a 5-minute task. Two bolts, 3 locking plugs, and I was ready to go. While I was hooking up the ECU, I couldn't keep from humming the Scarecrow's song from Wizard of Oz!
I must say that after I sent the ECU off for its tune, I had a bit of buyer's remorse. I'd seen other members here with turbos and superchargers, drooled over wokka 's build among others, had I made the right choice? Would the tune make a noticeable difference? I took Ruby for a little 60 mile jog out through Huntsville and over the upper Pig Trail along War Eagle creek to find out.
Disposing of worries and doubts took about 5 minutes! WOW! Throttle response, especially above 2500 rpm was dramatically improved. Passing power is tremendous, along the twisty Ozark roads I had several "Oh $hit!" moments as my slingshot surprised me over and over again!
They say 'know your limits, and drive within them", with the tune, I had to discover those limitations all over again. Roads that were old friends became a new and exciting adventure again! Down shift to 3rd at 40 mph and 80 is just a throttle blip away. Upshift to 4th at 80 and the engine snarls to let you know there is lots more where that came from! The first farm truck I passed, I went from 40 to over 90 so fast I couldn't believe it. The new Cooper Zeon rs3-s on the back did a great job transmitting the power to the road. I felt large and in charge!
Am I gonna get a turbo someday? I kind of doubt it now! I have all the power I need for country roads and highway driving. Can't really imagine needing more get up and go than this, but I can easily imagine getting myself into trouble with more!
Kyle D 's tune and exhaust package make my SLR what it should have been from the factory - a top of the line NA Slingshot! If you get a chance for a ride along in a sling with the ZZP package, take it! For about 1/3 to 1/4 the price of a turbo or supercharger, you get plenty of performance!
