    Key Fob gives more power

    Im not crazy.

    One of my key fobs makes my car run better than the other:

    One of my fobs needed a battery so I stopped using it and started using the spare and I noticed the car was not as responsive and the ehaust was quieter. I got the fob battery replaced and like magic she ran better and had a deeper tone and I thought what the F.

    Test
    I have a little mark on one and while driving I would stop turn my head and let the wife switch them up, 7 times, and I got it right every single time. I did this again with my buddy and 6 times I got it right.

    I'm stock with a GIAC stg1 flash which by the way has been a great tune.

    Anybody experience anything like this?

    Could the "learning" done by the ECU about your driving style also be associated with the key fobs (just like your seat positions)? Since you never used the other key fob, it would still be set to a "default" or less aggressive driving style if that was the case.

    The fast key fob may be illegal (in US), it is meant for Autobahn runs in Gernany only. Be prepared to switch fob's if you are stopped at a checkpoint so you don't end up in foot-iron Click here to enlarge

    So how do we know which fob is the more powerful fob?

    I once heard about a guy who mixed gatorade with his fuel, said it made him go faster or something....Click here to enlarge

    But in all seriousness, the fob may save driving habits so that could be something.

    It's just a guess but it seems logical given it stores other specific information. I cannot confirm nor deny it stores driving styles.
