Hi. I would like to be able to limit the performance of my car when others drive it. Eg reduce boost, lower rev limit etc. Basically a valet mode. My car has been tuned already. Is there a way to simply do this?

If you had an sti with si drive maybe, but I think you'd need a different ecu?

I believe throttle happy can. Well at least it was an option on my gt for two different tunes.


I suppose you could get an electronic boost controller to run hi and low boost setting but not quite the same.

Ecutek has dual maps which can be switched on the fly.
With mine its foot to the floor and press the rear demist button to switch between maps.
I assume one of those tunes could be low boost, low rpm limit etc.

I assume I could plug in Tactrix. Open Ecuflash and change specific tables for rev limit and/or boost and then change back again once done. So a manual type valet mode that required a laptop. Would this work?

Do you know if you have the later Ecutek with have dual maps?
Your dyno graph would probably show it.

If you have the later Ecutek depending how it is setup you should have launch control, down shift blip and flat floor shifting.
You can switch modes by pressing the demist button when the accelerator is flat to the floor (either load the engine in a high gear if traveling or do it with engine off but ignition on). When switching, the CEL should either do 1 long flash for Mode 1 or flash about 8 times for Mode 2.

setting a maximum throttle angle would probably have a big impact to create "valet mode".

Eg a tune where maximum throttle angle couldn't exceed 30% would keep the silly stuff out of it while still giving the driver a perfectly usable car.

From memory, max throttle angle (in the 30% ballpark) is a feature of the economy setting on an "SI Drive" vehicle.
