Hey all, in the interests of science and the community as a whole, I have decided to pull the trigger on a tune from MTD in Greece. This will be the second one in our community I think (Deyeme Racing has the MTD tune as well), so I will try and share my experiences with you all. With any luck, I will have the opportunity to provide some more data for us in the form of dynos.

I chose the MTD option for two reasons. Firstly, they seem to be pushing the envelope hard with some interesting results. Did you know they have a 1.4MA car that does the 100-200kph run in 7.8 seconds? Secondly, there are enough EC, Tork and (some) Open Flash data points, I thought I would try and add a newer one to our data set. I am not sure how it will work out remotely once mods start to get heavier, but we will see!

At this stage I am still stock engine (with Record Monza) and I have a Madness intake sitting around waiting to be fitted. I will spring for a full exhaust next.

Just waiting on final price and shipping details from MTD now, hopefully we get some movement soon.

OP edited to reflect @Deyeme Racing tune. Deyeme, chime in with your thoughts if you have some! How are you finding the tune so far?

They never got back to me after our initial conversation, I contacted them a couple of times to check up and nada. A little disappointing to say the least.

I have decided to move the car on after spending some time with the C63 last week. I'm a little tired of waiting for a good tuning set up and the C63 was a barrel of laughs! Different beast of course.

The Abarth is a great platform though, thoroughly enjoyed it!

Wow, I totally missed this thread when it was active. Sorry to resurrect it now, but just to verify, yes, I am running the MTD Stage 1 calibration. The language and location issues make things challenging, but I already owned the PowerGate 3 handheld unit since I'd bought it as part of the OpenFlash tune. Performance feels equal to the OFP Stage 1, but I haven't been back to the dyno yet. I wanted to wait until about the same time as last year, so I don't skew the results with a much cooler air charge. I'll update my build thread when I get back there. I've been focusing on our Wrangler all winter (Project Creeper, named after the Minecraft character by my boys). In the coming months, I plan on stocking more MTD stuff like cams, too, and getting one installed in our ride.
