Yeah, they had 1.5 out, but John I believe discontinued that to develop it all the way for Stage 2. I have all stage 2 mods right now and he said just keep running stage 1, and wait for the official stage 2 tune. So the 1.5 is no longer available, neither is stage 2.
Hopefully, that makes sense.
@Chainring. I think your car has had some issues on EC & Tork? What about Tork stage 1? My car hasn't had any issues with tunes, so I'm optimistic that my car will work a bit easier. I know some of these cars just have weird issues that take time to sort out, and mine hasn't been one of those (yet). Maybe I won the FCA lottery? lol No oil consumption that I can tell yet, my dyno chart looks almost identical to the one on Tork's website too (minus variations in power levels because of different Dyno's). I also do not have the U76 recall done on mine, so hopefully, that means my car will be more consistent/easier to get working properly. I offered to test some beta versions of the tune and dyno them & provide logs, but he said they have their own cars to do this and didn't want to do it. I assume so I wouldn't post on the forum about how bad it was if it didn't work haha. Understandable, I'd just like more power at this point.
Overall, I've been happy with my car, just looking for more power. I know Brett's car is working well, but it's still a beta tune.
Oh just FYI, the aFe fiat turbo dropped quite a bit in price too, it's like $932.23 shipped now, including the BOV. So if you're considering buying the Forge Motorsports BOV for 1446, it may honestly be worth getting the aFe if it is in fact more efficient. It's probably about $692 more expensive to upgrade to this, than to just do the BOV upgrades on the 1446. At this point, it's cheaper than the intercooler, and not any more expensive than the v4 intake & coil packs, but probably ads more value. Now that it's below $1,000 this turbo is looking more interesting, I just really want dyno charts to be released before I commit to it, honestly. I'm just not convinced that it will make more power across the powerband. Maybe the spool will be a little quicker, and maybe it'll drop off less above 6000, but I just don't think it'll add more than a few horsepower across the powerband. But if on E85, it can add 10-20whp across the powerband, it may honestly be worth it. Figure with Tork Stage 2+ aFe turbo could make 240-250whp, I'd be in.
I think making 240-250whp on a turbo with stock (or quicker) spool is the absolute perfect option until they develop more efficient stuffed turbos. G25-550 seems like a turbo for the drag strip, or possibly HPDE/Track days if you could develop Anti-Lag.
