Yeah, Madness say up to 16% gains, and we're seeing 10% here. Who knows if that's natural variability of the engines, the dyno, climate, or what. 444rwhp baseline seems about right, though (from the perspective of drag time calcs and benchmarking QV 12sec times). An extra 45rwhp will shave half-a-second off the 1/4 mi time, though!
I'll let one of the resident drag strip experts chime in (e.g. @AlfaPhilly) but I think 45WHP on a QV is good for maybe a 10th or so.

Yeah, I certainly don't know, and just plugged the numbers into an online calculator, but the baseline dyno numbers did coincide with real results both based on AR engine power rating and multiple drag time results, so I reckoned the calculator had it figured correctly and would be accurate factoring in the 45rwhp gain as well.

Yes I ran a complete adaptation , using the tune for a bout a week
Before the dyno. I will say the base line was run by bypassing the piggyback tune with no adaptation as we were told no adaptation is required when reverting to stock

The power comes on earlier because they got on throttle earlier/lower rpm. Look at the graph on the far left and it's pretty obvious.
Is that right??? The way it looks to me and was explained the power bands "dark colors being tune + exhaust " blue, red and green. Start climbing right after 1900rpms, while tune alone doesn't start creating power until 2440 rpms

QV is all about getting tires to hook. I would think adding 45whp would give 1-2/10th improvements to most semi-skilled drivers. Keep in mind when car is tested by Alfa it’s a professional with a specifically prepped surface. PerfectDA. Temp. Race gas. Heated tires etc. I thought the baseline of 444 whp was very high for a stock qv. I think most are only putting 405-420at the wheels stock. I’m no expert but IMO you would need about 460-480 whp to shave .2-.3 off. And 500+whp to get in mid to low 11s. Again tires are everything. I’m sure a stock qv that hooks can run an 11.8 maybe 11.7!under certain conditions. The power is there. Unless you put it in dyno mode at drag strip there is no way to eliminate whatever safety nannie that kicks in on a hard WOT launch. Many qv owners will tell you there is something at play. It’s sudden but it can absolutely account for .2-.3 in 60’ times. Maybe more.

Any future Max Power Pro software updates for the 2.0?
Hello beta2alfa,

Thank you for reaching out about the MADNESS MAXPower PRO.

At this time there are no software updates for the Alfa Romeo Giulia 2.0L MAXPower PRO.

We have been using the MPP on our Giulia at the shop and haven't experienced any issues to warrant a software update for the MAXPower PRO.

As always if you have any other questions please feel free to contact us directly and one of our Team Members will be happy to help.

Thank you again.
