New to the forum but have been following it since summer '09. I bought my 08 QP GTS in Sept after much research and searching for the right car. I was coming off of a MB CLS55 and was initially impressed with handling/styling, but power and torque was a little disappointing considering my previous car. After reading the forum, I decided to go the forumula dynamics route. I had Jeff install the ECM and DBW on my 08 QP GTS. I thought I would see a small increase in power and a little more throttle response. Boy was I wrong. The car is a beast now. It doesn't have the shear torque of the AMG but it definitely feels the same with the added responsiveness. Everytime I get in the car, it amazes me how much deliverable power it has. Combine that with the already great suspension on the car and you now have improved upon the best 4 door sedan on the market. The BMW and MB just is in a lower league to the QP. My 2 cents worth for those of you considering the FD mods. Thanks again Jeff!

Thanks for the review! Glad that we were able to help you unleash the beast!

Best Regards,

I heartily agree-

I also have a 08 Sport GTS, and I love my car. But when it was just in stock mode it was kind of too sluggish for me, as I know the car is set up to be a luxury saloon and not as a sports car. It should have come this way from the factory since it was a sport gts model. Even with the automatica, the throttle response is instant, and power is on tap whenever you need it, and with the ECM, after 4500 rpm, its like the car gets a boost, with the proper air/fuel ratio mixture being burned. Its just great. Jeffs products from FD are amazing, and really kick it up a few notches, I am very happy with my car. You should also look into a larini exhaust for the QP. It sounds amazing, and its not obnoxiously loud at all.

I really need to drive the automatica with Jeff's mods. I drove a stock one and left the dealership completely unimpressed. Then I went and bought the duoselect. I put Jeff's mods in my duo and they made a big difference, so I like to close out on the automatica sometime.

Too bad I live in the middle of nowhere (Kansas City) and am unlikely to come across a fellow QP owner out here (let alone one with an automatica and Jeff's mods)... :(
