It doesn't work well on the 2011+ bikes, 2010 was still a little different so not sure.
I disabled the O2 sensor and SAI on the TOD and loaded it again onto my S3, Then I did the 12 minute tune and it runs very well. My S3 is a 2010 with a K&N filter and Arrow 3-1 low mount, This tune are very smooth and the power delivery are very strong and constand it seem to never dissapear.

Having read about the tune of death I decided I had to try it. I have a 2009 S3 with a Comp Werkes 3-1 low mount and had no issues loading the tune although I never got the TPS light due to no O2 sensor in the tune. SAI is enabled but seems pointless without the O2 sensor? My previous tune worked OK with the Comp Werkes pipe but it was prone to blue flame and alot of popping on deceleration. The obvious improvement with the tune is a major reduction in popping on deceleration and no flames when you close and then open the throttle. In terms of performance improvement, the tune is definately impressive with the bike pulling hard all the way through the rpm and gears and 100mph comes and goes very quickly. Even with the stock cans this bike would get the front wheel off the ground in first and second gear when you ride it like you stole it but with the tune of death it is not possible to hit wide open throttle in first or second and still expect the front wheel to be available for it's steering duties. In third it is very easy to get the front to pop up on the throttle with a little encouragement from a rise in the road. I suspect it may also be true in higher gears if you are in the right rpm range but the corresponding speed would be too high to be comfortable unless you have really mastered the art of keeping the front wheel in line when it is off the ground. On the downside, this tune has taken away alot of rideability at low speed. The tune is great if you are accelerating or running above 5000 rpm but when you are in traffic it feels like it is straining at the leash. With some mods and a dyno the tune of death could definately get the last drop of power and torque out of the S3 motor but for my needs I will be trying a tune with a little more low speed rideability and I would definately be more comfortable with less ignition advance. I will definately try this again though when the ambient air temp is higher as it looks like the tune has not considered cold running conditions (46 degrees F today). I am also planning a 45 tooth rear sprocket and I suspect that this tune with a 45 rear will be alot of fun.
