Does anyone have information on how to get our ES tuned? Any information would be appreciated.

Tune creation is still in progress.

Tork is working on theirs. Shark racing offers a tune, but it requires sending yours in and waiting 2+ weeks to get it back.

We are getting closer and closer as the days go on, we are most likely much less patient than all of you have been, we can't wait to see what the ES can do!

STOP WRITING AND TUNE LOL
really hoping to see soon a stage 0 tune, with higher octane timing, stiffer steering, better pedal respond!!!!

We are working on tuning as well.

Currently, the only way to do it is to send your ECU out of your car to the tuner to get it flashed.

This is another reason why I will be flashing a spare ECU along with safety reasons. My car is my only car, can't have any down time.

The only way you wouldn't be down at all would be to buy the spare ECU and have the dealer match it to your car (which costs $$$).

Otherwise, you'd have to mail your spare and your original so we can make the spare match (using your original ECU info).
This would save you the dealer labor of matching the spare, but then comes the downtime :)

We will be working on purchasing an ECU with a tune already on it, no promises that that will be a thing. But it is something that we have been working on getting dialed in. If that ends up being an issue or not something that is feasible for Quality Control reasons we will be doing it the way we always have, send your ECU in, we tune it with our patented "neck breaking power" technology, and send it back to you for you to enjoy!

Hey Tyson do you have any update on this tune or any other tune you guys are working on? Just curious!!

At this time no, we should be getting something soon, the waiting part is the worst. As soon as we have something I will let everyone know. We are dying to see what the ES will make with our tune!

Tyson
No worries at all, we appreciate what you guys are doing for us! Keep it up!!

Can someone explain to me what the difference between the dyno tune vs. the ECU flash. Will the gains from a dyno tune be more?

I'm a 13 hour drive to the nearest shop, do you think it would be worth the drive?
If you're talking about getting tuned by the Tork or 6EE folks, then yes. I made the drive from Austin to Phoenix, which was about 13 hours, to get my VT tuned by Tork after having run a bench flash from them for a year. Massive difference and well worth the time. Plus, road trip!!! Who doesn't like a road trip?

I will take your word for it. I was leaning toward that anyways. I just wanted to know from someone who has been there. Has anyone on here done the dyno with SxthEE? This is where I will be going to get the tune once it's available. Tork is a 3 day drive I'd rather not go that far.

They're not done developing their tune for the ES yet so, no, no one has yet.

Yes I know, I was referring to people like you who may have had a tuning done with them in the past with the VT. I can check other forums too and see if there are any reviews. Thanks for your time.

Theres some guy I follow on Instagram who apparently already has his ES tuned. He's up in Canada and is touting a LAP3 ecu/tune. Not sure if thats any different from what were talking about here.
