I didn't video the boring stuff. If you're a car guy or gal, this will probably put a smile on your face. If not, don't click:

Go full screen and turn up the sound. :)

Yeah, you could have taken a longer video, us nerds would appreciate it.

I'm sure the tuning would have proved worthwhile, so now let's see the result on the track.

Shortened the video to expedite upload. You didn't miss much. Results:

Street tune (93 octane) HP=635 Torque=682.
Race tune (117 octane) HP=692 Torque=689.

Max horsepower numbers are down uptop from last time tuned but that doesn't tell the whole story. I had a nice horsepower jump in the middle of the powerband, which can be a very nice place. Max torque is up. My tuner thinks the difference is probably a result of the resonators I added between tunes.

Brisk throttle response!

That's just where you want it to be for road use. Mid range is where you get to annoy people that pick a "fight" lol.

Good to see your tuner had nice air flow through the front. Always amazes me how many shops with a rolling road neglect this.

Air flow up top was for radiator (OEM) and at bottom was for heat exchanger (larger capacity, dual fan after-market).

I turned two screws and switched to a synthetic chain lube. My Jamis 27 speed bicycle is powered by as many frijoles as I can eat (for jet propulsion) and the unit is now stealth quiet... unless I squeeze out the jet exhaust for a power boost. After this tune-up the Jamis achieved 0.8/hp at 150/rpm for the short haul (about a quarter-mile), however, at higher gear and lower rpm the mileage per frijole rose 9%. Adding a tortilla and blackened pork to the fuel source I get 9-10 hours of travel at medium-high rev on flat terrain, about 150 miles per fueling.
