Gs fastworks tune review.

First of all I would like to thank my two friends here on club4g for their knowledge and support. If any of you feel lost on what to do, these two will help you out. Sabretooth^2 and Pcfreak4.

GATHERING WHAT YOU NEED.

To start things off you'll need a few things to get a Fastworks tune.
2.0 openport Tactrix cable. Those are around 180-190$
Any laptop with windows 7 and up.
Cheapest is like 200$ at walmart or try a pawnshop.
Next is the type of tune. My build is NA so i paid 350$ but there is also a forced induction tune which costs more.
Keep in mind you also pay a small USD to CAD fee if tuning from USA by paying with Paypal.
Everything is done online so obviously you'll need internet connection.
Last but not least you'll need patience.
This is not AT&T big so dont expect quick customer service or to tune in one day. These guys do this on their free time and have a job for a living. Besides good things come to those who wait.

READY TO TUNE?

When ready to tune contact Fastworks. Alex K. will be your guy to get started.
He takes the payment from you then he gives you a link to download Fastworks into your laptop and you have to register. Then Hackish has to authenticate your log in info so you have access to Fastworks. This took almost two days for me and no, im not complaining.
After that, Alex will guide you on the next steps to get the ECU data from your 4G and start working on your tune. This takes days as Michael (Hackish.) and Alex work on your tune.
While you wait, let them know the list of your mods and what you would like out of your car. I went for lots of pops & crackles and of course, power.
I would like to add that while I waited i bombed poor Alex with several questions and he happily answered them all.
After a few days, Alex contacted me and sent me my tunes. I got two tunes. 87 Eco and 91-93 octane tune both with lots of pops and crackles.
By then i was eager to tune that i decided to explore Fastworks and tuned on my own. But if you're nervous about it Alex will guide you and you're all set.

WHAT DOES THE TUNE DO?

From my understanding 87 Eco tune gives you exactly what the name implies. If catless the ECU is tuned to stop dumping that extra fuel cats need to perform their purpose making your car more economically. Besides that it increases power throughout all the rev range. How much? Maybe 8-10whp.
Now 91-93 octane increases power by another 4-5whp but keep in mind that those gains come only from 91. Going 93 will increase power but the gains past 91 octane are minimal and arent noticable. Besides power, your tune will have launch control. A must for alot of us.
Fastworks has more features allowing you to raise your idle, get rid of your SES light tripped by O2 Sensors and alot more tuning options that my knowledge limits.

IS THE TUNE WORTH IT?

In my opinion? Yes. Best bang for your buck as one of my friends would say. But dont let me talk about it and go find out yourself. With that said I hope this helps many other members that want to tune but dont know what to expect.

EXTRA INFO.

Here's a little extra info.
Our stock GS makes 140whp.
Our cars over time lose HP with compression loss.
Full bolt ons and tune will yield around 160whp.
GS is better than GT as our platform has alot more aftermarket support than a GT.
A Forced Induction GS can easily yield GT numbers on stock internals and is lighter than a GT.

Good post man, only thing I have to mention is your talk about the octane ratings on the tune

It’s the couple extra horsepower when going from the tuned 87 octane tune to the tuned 91 octane tune

93 octane can be used on either tune, obviously will be more powerful on the 91 octane tune, but will not increase the power of your engine more than that tune is designed for *unless* your engine was knocking on that tune already, which shouldn’t be happening

For example, running 93 octane on the 91 octane tune is perfectly fine, all it does it provide more knock protection to run higher octane

Don’t ever run lower octane however, engine will knock, and it’ll kick you into the low octane maps

Full bolt ons and tune is in the 180whp area on the manual GS actually, using a 2.25" exhaust and RRE header. I estimate a 2.5" and 4-1 header may actually put you in the 185whp area, if not slightly better.

The 180whp is dyno confirmed on the forum here

Thank you for the extra info. This will help and most definately motivate all 4G GS owners who are seeking more power out of their engine and havent tuned.

Tactrix is the main one. ELM327 is being experimented with.

It's not a matter of fitment and pin count as much as the device driver's, and device being capable of working on an encrypted ECU

Id stick to Tactrix, don’t wanna brick your ECU trying to save a few bucks, then you’ll be spending way more to get that fixed
