Whats everyone's experience/ impressions
« on: May 08, 2016, 06:32:02 PM »
I am still using ACES, though I am still stock it is difficult for me to produce quantitative data.  I did see a jump in gas mileage, though that has seemed to decrease slightly.  I still see a significant amount of soot at the exhaust tips. 

Has anyone pulled plugs after using ACES for a while? 

I am still hoping that ACES is an option instead of meth.  To be clear, I do not think ACES will be a complete replacement to meth; I have no illusion that a 'fuel catalyst' is going to compete with a secondary fuel source.  However, if tuning allows for a "watered down meth tune" or an "increased non-meth tune" then I think this is a great play.

Time to get yourself a boroscope, J-Will, and seek out the truth :)  glock-coma's got a pro unit (lucky guy ;) ), but a good USB boroscope should work as well.  X2 on plug condition check ...

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

All you have to do is take plentiful, clear pics, and let us decide by committee ;)  We do have some samples from BG, glock-coma, and others.  So not a huge database, but not barren either.
