Hey Everyone: I'd like to vouch for Doug's tunes...! I actually just sent an email to Chris at ECS about my car. I had the chance to drive my friend's H/C '01 C5 recently. Great car and it's fast, but my car actually pulls harder on the bottom end. Part of that is the movement of the torque curve with his cam, but I know a lot of it is this tune as well. My buddy also drove my car and said, "I wouldn't do anything else to this car," as he knew I was thinking of putting in a H/C setup. The car is really that fast. All I've done to date ...
