Do you know if this tune will work with the 1600?

The 1600 has different cams so you don't want to do that. Of course nearly any T bird tune will "work" in most any T bird, but how much risk are you willing to take? I definitely wouldn't do that.

would love to see a print of the dyno, 10/10 is a significant increase and seeing where the power is and if it matches my riding style, getting more performance has been important to a lot of us and your generous to share it so if i'm out of line asking for a pic my apologize.

My Bike.
2012 1700 Storm
No O2's
No Cat
Short TORS

Ran like crap, was ok on freeways, not so good on twisties. Normal problems at idle to 1500/2000rpm.
Marc started from low rpms as I do most of my riding on back roads and worked his way up to rev limits. 2 tanks of gas and nearly 300 miles on his dyno and I think he has achieved a near perfect map for this bike. It pulls hard and now can be riden as hard on the turns without the jerky, stumbling throttle response. The bonus is we gained 10hp and 10 more lbs of torque. On the twisties I can now keep up with my son on a FZ09.
I have a hex file of this tune if anyone would like to try it.
I'd like to try your tune. Do you have the O2 sensors removed or just turned of in tuneECU? My OBD2 cable should arrive next week so I'm trying to get some tune options ready for my '13 Storm that I just put BC Predators on. I sent you a DM, thanks.

Is that NAH's tune or a different one?
