Excellent bump in power
BNR reports 300hp/340tq was managed from his tune. You wouldn't know it doing day to day things, but as soon as you lean into the pedal everything changes - for the better. Power is even, predictable, and plenty. The car had good performance before, now it's "look down and see you're going waaay too fast" quick. I have the Auto transmission (opted not to program it although it was offered) and started toying with launching from 2nd gear with the shiftronic last night. The power is so immediate at mid throttle the tires easily spin in first. I've never been to a track but I'm going next Spring when they open to get some times. I'll practice a bit until then. I'm thinking easily high 5s 0-60, low 14s 1/4 mile. For me the benefit was passing and merging power, I soar past traffic at will. 40-70MPH seems to only take a couple seconds. Otherwise this is my daily driver so most of the time its abilities are tempered by traffic or cruise control for longer stretches. It's just nice to know the power is there, and that its running at its very best.
MPGs may have increased a bit, as I've had some fun with the car and averages haven't changed. Haven't done any paper calculations but my computer estimates were real close anyway.
