I am very tempted by the DreamScience Xmas/New Year offer that runs out in a couple of days.

I have the 5 tune handset currently & run Performance+ in the winter and use Race or Race+
when it's not so slippery. I never really liked the DSCI tune, I thought the power delivery was quite aggressive.

I will lose the Race tune in the upgrade and gain Mod B, B+ and C (and my handset gets reset to all 5 lives, currently 4 at the mo.)

The engine mods I have are:
3in down pipe, 100cell cat. & mongoose cat-back.
AS Gen1 CAIS
Quaife LSD
RS Clutch

I have to stay with the standard intercooler until the end of April, my insurance won't allow it.
When I change insurers a code:red intercooler is going straight on.

I really like my track days and can't honestly say that I need more power, smoothness of the mapping is really important.
What do you think? Would I be upgrading just for the sake of it i.e. the additional tunes are really just for bragging rights
on a rolling road day & what I have is fine (and I can't resist a 'bargain'). Or, do the later maps really bring something to the party?

Thanks in advance for all your advice,
Jon

Sounds to me like your insured with elephant? I was the other year but with Chris Knott(highway) and its £500 cheaper, all mods declared and mods insured like for like.

I would go for it mate, I run mod-c and its great!

Mod C is an animal mate. Smooth and pulls a lot more than DSCi. It was almost like getting a new car

Yep mod C is great, compliments the mods nicely.

You will need the big intercooler as the maps generate a lot of heat and the car will back the power off.

Running ModB+ at mo and again a great map , loads of power that just keeps going and going.

Yep, Admiral actually, they're the same company tho.
I was with them anyhow when I bought the ST & the price difference to change the car was much cheaper
than buying a new policy from a specialist insurer. At the time I had noooooo intention whatsoever of modding anything.
Damn STOC forum

Thats funny! But it really is!

Then I went and bought a Dreamscience induction kit and its changed the whole car again. It now sounds like an old skool turbo sucking, hissing, whistling and dumping!!

its still in development.
standard oil cooler will only just cope with the heat generated.
Ok for normal road use but an oil cooler (again in development) will be required for track/race use.
Says it all really about the map!

Its more powerful than modc , will produce same output figures every run and apparently the more you want the more it gives up the rev range!

Unless the DSCI map is still not running the maximum boost and fuelling im not sure where else they can go with these maps. You'd have to uprate something for sure


Where are the technical discussion on development?

apparently DS have found some other hidden parameters in the ECU.
was something they found on the new RS and then they found the same on the ST I'm lead to believe.

I thought there wouldn't be much of a difference between the DSCi map and Mod C.

I was wrong

It's obscene
