QV Tune

Has anyone actually gotten a cloned ecu for a QV? I've searched the forum but not found anyone's experience. I know euro compulsion claims that the guila tune and the stelvio are interchangeable. I am concerned about the differences with the transmission.

I called about it on Friday the 12th and their voice mail message said to leave info and they would call back. Nothing so far.

I've been watching EC posts etc on the giulia forum for a long time - they are as straight up as it gets, no hype, etc.
ask them - if there are any trans concerns with their tune, I expect they will let you know.

EC quality has been nothing short of IDEAL!!! Their tuning is actually fully evaluated by FCA engineers! My TiSport has no tranny issues and the ZF unit is profoundly capable. For the occasional power blast a nom issue IMHO, if you track the car at high levels???? as would be the case anyways. If you drove my car, you would just think it was a better Stelvio that shifted better, had 80-110 more HP and felt like it was factory perfect.

As long is it doesn't cause any failures, no tune will automatically void your warranty. My Range Rover dealer knows and loves it. My Alfa dealer knows and loves it.etc

Maybe, but something seems wrong or incomplete in the Quad Tune (from EC or anyone else) when No One will really advertise it or discuss it.

I was told by EC in an Email that they were tuning one about a week ago and would report back the results. Nothing Yet and that Makes Zero Sense in my view.
Fortunately what the factory delivered is nothing short of Amazing, especially considering the 25 - 30 MPG Potential and its ability to go from 6 cylinder operation to 3, unnoticed.

Tell me more about this potential, please. For cross country trips I can get close to 22mpg but my typical daily driving is around 14mpg. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind, I didn't buy this car because I was worried about fuel efficiency. But, if there is a way for me to get a balance where I can choose to play or choose to cruise at a higher efficiency, I'm definitely interested.

Are you saying the factory delivered Quad does not have the Potential to get 25 - 30 MPG or are you saying that when you drive it the way you want to drive it at the speeds you want to drive - it gets far less?


I think the fuel economy threads support the fact that 25 to 30 is possible if you can keep your foot out of it and there is a direct relationship to HP demanded by the driver and fuel burned to deliver it.
