    If you are asking for tuning advice you should also take the time to make a DSM Profile. The above tasks may not be enough to solve your issue and if we need to look at your modifications we should be able to click on a profile to do that not spend wasted time asking for them.

    Don’t forget to post (upload) your log in question. It is imperative that the answers to the above questions be truthful and accurate in order to receive the best and most helpful information about your tune. We look forward to helping you in the near future.
