Thanks. I asked for quotes and they introduced Revo and MTM.
Both are not approved by LTA. What are the chances of it being detected actually?
Also, it mentioned extra strain on engine drive train, and recommended better brakes and suspension etc as well. I think a stage 1 tune shouldnât be that bad right?
Also, will insurance be affected?
Not approved by LTA doesn't means it's illegal.
Cos if it's illegal they can't even sell it to you.
Engine tunes do not require LTA approval.
Recommendation of better brakes and suspension
is just fluff for them to milk consumers pockets.
Doing this tune and adding more horsepower is like putting more money into your wallet
Having more money doesn't mean you'll spend more. It's just that you have more buffer and flexibility during exigencies, and having more money makes you feel good.
Coming back to motoring speak, doing a tune ups the power yes, but it doesn't mean you'll change your driving style right. You won't be redlining Everytime or break the speed limit blatantly right. So with this tune, and you continue to drive normally, why need to upgrade suspension
More power and torque makes the drive feel more responsive and enjoyable (make u feel good). It gives you the confidence to overtake safely when the need arises (exigencies). All these is analogous to my more money in wallet
So, if you can afford it, it'll be worth it. If I'm not wrong, getting this done at PA preserves warranty so why not right. 😎
