    Sofa KingTuned Vs Everything

    Hey folks. Started an account just to post this - Long time lurker, first time poster. - 2016 Eco Bighorn - 60k miles.
    I've read every forum post, FB post, Group Post on this tune - Mostly because I found it hard to believe the claims people and this company were making.

    So here's what I know - or at least what I think I know based on what I've read and researched.

    Sofa King Tuned has been business for about 6-8 months or so - reselling someone else's tune (optimum tuning)? - Unsure about the Transmission tune or it's claim to produce "20+ Rear Wheel HP"

    The website claims "EVERYTHING is mapped from complete scratch" - Just not by Jimmy.

    The tune appears to tamper with the EVIC readouts to make it "appear" as though it's getting better MPG. One of the forums users admits the hand calculations were 20% off of what the EVIC was showing.

    Dyno numbers posted are produced on an Inertia rated DynoJet and don't have a stock run to compare them with. (the average person should know DynoJets produce a readout of 9-12% higher HP)?

    So what makes this tune better than a PPEI or GDE or Banks? How does 1 single person, pop up out of the woodwork to produce a tune that (safely) beats companies in MPG, HP, and TQ, who have more funding, more experience, more people and more knowledge?
    - Before you answer that - or before anyone answers that, I'd like to see Banks, PPEI, GDE and Sofaking all send their tune in to be; dyno'd on the same day by an independent 3rd party and analysed for all to see what's really there. Why hasn't this been done before?

    I'm posting this in the hope the average consumer does their research and finds out the truth of what they are actually buying.
    Always remember - If it sounds too good to be true, It usually is.

    Fever , I don't know , I don't see bashing , just a big warning , about the Sofaking tune maybe not being all the advertised product it is claimed to be ,
    -possible deceptions :
    - evic display modification instead of actual modifications ,,,Ouch.
    -Inertia rated DynoJet Dyno used because it gives false higher results ( new stuff to me ).
    ..
    and an invitation to test all PPEI , GDE , Banks , and Sofa K tunes in one place with same equipment ,( never going to happen ).
    .
    AZmavaz may turn out to be a knowledgeable guy , hard to say with one post ...
    ..

    But the tuner can adjust it like GDE did. They now have theirs extremely accurate.

    This isn't going to be another of those "he said ... she said" schoolgirl threads is it?

    Maybe instead of letting accusation and rumour run rampant, there should be some requirement for people laying claims to post actual, verifiable evidence? Otherwise this is just a gossip and bashing forum .

    Just my $0.05 (no pennies up here)

    Opinions are always okay here as long as they're not presented as facts.
