Stratified just came through with my E30 tune in 24 hours flat from the time I submitted my tuning form.

So frickin excited!
Amazing service from the peeps at Stratified!

THANK YOU!!! [twothumb]
Then you must be someone reallyyyyy important or Jesús because that never happends with them, the 24 hours turnaround, ever
 
i guess you speak for every Stratified customer? because my tunes always came within 1 business day.

Flash tune or custom tune? If it is a flash tune, then that is a 1st. I have heard a lot of people waiting 5+ days to get theirs, including myself
If it is a custom tune then, that explains it
 
It was an E30 flash tune.
I also have waited up to almost a week before as well, this time they came through though.
There's probably times that are busier than others and I just got lucky.... that or I am Jesus apparently [rockon]

I am now running a Dizzy set of tunes, 93 and e30 and both are freaking awesome. The 93 tune drives just like stock, but faster, a good bit faster. Even averaged 34+ mpg on a highway troll this weekend.

Then there is the e30 tune, holy jeezus amazeballs. I LOVE it.

How about HPTuners? I noticed it's not in the list. Does nobody use it on here?

dizzytuning.com... He has sales for just about every major and minor holiday to where you get the e30 for free when you order the flash tune... his tunes are amazingly smooth and refined, absolutely adore his e30 tune, it literally feels exactly how a stock turbo car should just run and feel at it's best, but his 91/93 tunes I feel are a little flat and too conservative compared to like a Stratified tune.
 
Just installed my DiabloSport 91 octane tune. I'll give it a few days and report back. I know some folks have had mixed results, but I couldn't pass up an i3 tuner for $169

thanks for the tip currently running the stage 2 dizzy 91 oct , very pleased with the feel and speed the car is also more responsive makes the car feel like this is how it should have come from the dealer.

i was also very impressed with the eco map still plenty to get you around but i love it for heavy traffic makes driving a bit more laid back [perfect10] cant wait to try their e30 tune next

Glad you like the Dizzy tune, his e30 is just amazing, you won't want to go back to any less! :)
 
Update on my DiabloSport tune. After 2 months of back and forth, I still can't get either tune to work without throwing codes and going into Limp Mode. The tunes work, kind of. You can see and feel the difference, until the P0234 code pops up. I'm about to give up on this product.

Find a used Cobb AP and get a very solid real Pro Tuner flash tune for $75 and zero headaches my friend... Sorry to hear that in this case that you got what you paid for. :(
 
On the stock turbo I was using a Stratified off the shelf tune. Now I've got an MRX and I am tuning with Tune+ with good results.

We've had some great discussion with some tuning experts on the FB groups about this and here I am, a full year into ownership and this idea finally makes sense: If you have the stock turbo and run pump gas, then Cobb OTS stage 2-3 is pretty much the same as a Stratified flash tune and not much reason to get a Stratified tune in that case (pump fuel, stock turbo). Ignore Cobb's BS "requirements" and you'll see that all stock turbo tunes has about the same WGDC, boost, timing and power overall. Cobb uses less base timing and adds more while Stratified has higher base timing advance and adds less and a bit different throttle input mapping... Now I'm a fan of Dizzy because of just how smooth he makes it in comparison to Cobb or Stratified, it truly gives the car a much more refined feel so it's worth the $75 cost alone, on top of having an E30 tune. But dead honestly, I don't see why anyone shouldn't just run Cobb Stage 2-3 instead of Stratified with a stock turbo now, the main difference overall is throttle tuning really, some people may feel that and the other options like traction control set to what you want at startup every time are worth it to them and that's fine, but power-wise there isn't too much difference at all.
 
I agree about the "BS requirements". I ran the Cobb stage 3 tune almost from the moment I installed it. I happen to like my canned Stratified 3.1 V tune better than the stage 3 Cobb tune. I have gone back and forth with these 2 and like was said the power is about the same but delivered a little differently. I might try a Dizzy tune one day but I can't imagine it being
that much different than Cobb and Stratified.

You are 100% right as far as power levels, with a stock turbo there isn't much more power between any decent tune. like I was saying above the biggest factor is how throttle response is programmed. But after trying Cobb, Strat V4 and Dizzy, the level of refinement and smoothness with Dizzy is clearly superior and a big factor to consider. I'm happy to have spent my money with him and have no intentions of go with yet another tuner... Now I'm not sure I posted it here or not, but Dizzy beat Stratified in torque and lower RPM HP by a bit in my case too. Blue is Dizzy, Red is Stratified V4. Dips in boost are from traction issues too, I need to get some new runs in to compare. I like how with Dizzy I had him set the Cobb TC to default to on at a setting of 3, works just as good if not better than paying extra for Strat's TC, but others have found Strat's TC to be superior for them. Of course still have to hit the TC button once to "Sport Mode" to override the lousy Ford fuel cut system, like any other tune, there is a guy here in the forums who sells a gadget to have either the "Sport mode" or "Race mode" enabled at startup.

Running a JST tune. The car runs great. Can we get a bubble in the poll for this?
