It's probably the pessimist in me but I think running it in normal mode is for the purpose of saying "hey look at these great gains". Regardless, that 235 whp is not bad for running in Normal mode and on a Mustang dyno.Yeah and if you noticed, they didn't run it in the N mode either. Sounded just like ours in normal mode. Hence the lower whp readings. Eco, Normal, Sport and N Modes have different fuel maps in the ECU along with other notable changes. The exhaust note was a definite give away. Sometimes this is purposeful for a tuner to show great gains later on and sometimes out of shear ignorance. Could be a bit of both. they also used a Mustang Dyno which is notorious for lower whp readings.
Blessings and Peace
There are dyno's showing the different modes on the same car, same dyno, same day and eco was the most powerful (not as overly rich afr as the more aggressive modes). I think it's mainly throttle response that ramps up.
I've been tuning vehicles for 15 years, it just takes a basic understanding of how the ECM being used works and what causes anti lag, power curve changes, and ramping in boost. You achieve all this by modifying the parameters that I listed in the last post.I understand what you're saying, theoretically, but I'm just not sure it applies in this case. Unless you have something that shows the actual differences between modes all I have seen so far is Post #40 of this build.
If you find that compelling and reliable with as much monkeying around he did and the talk of heatsoak and nothing actually logging the ecm direct then go right ahead. Go on the highway right now and from a decent rolling speed get on it in both modes at the same speed and you will find a hard time agreeing with him.Ok but the Eco dyno shows no less power anywhere in the rpm range, and more at higher rpm's. I would expect sport and sport+ to increase power but the only data I can find says otherwise.
These are not "fictional dynos", as you called them.
Was my only point.
I fully expect (hope) to eventually find proof that the "engine response" settings increase power.
