Dinan Stage 1 question

Just installed the Stage 1 tune on my 540 and now my HUD is acting up. Probably just a coincidence but would love some feedback from anyone that has the Dinan tune installed!

HUD issue likely not related. Do not know of any connection between a tune and car display options.

Agreed, can't imagine it causing a HUD issue, unless something has happened to the electrical system which would be odd during install. Where did you attach power/ground for it? My box is on the driver side covered brake fluid/cylinder, and power/ground run across to the passenger side. Power is tapped on the main post by the exhaust side, and then grounded further down by the passenger headlight at a main grounding post.

I've grounded it at the same spot. I'm sure it's a coincidence. Thanks!

Curious, what is the HUD doing? Also, what do you think of the tune so far? Certainly adds a kick!

HUD is disappearing while driving. Really strange. LOVE the tune though! Really makes a difference, so much more fun to drive.

I love the tune. Really happy with the performance now. Easy passing power and pulls so much harder all the way through to redline. You thinking about it?
