On my tune I have the throttle responsiveness option turned up to the max, but I'm finding that with sport mode engaged there's still an improvement in response over regular. Is there any way for Ktuner to give me the same responsive pedal in regular mode that it does in sport?

Is there a technical explanation?
Sport mode will always affect certain characteristics both internal to the ECU and externally in other modules. We have no intention of taking that away. The options to alter drivability are global adjustments.

Does anyone know when/if any of these calibration adjustments with any of the tuners make the throttle act 1:1?

It never will, as by design it opens the plate to help spool the turbo etc.

Sport changes overall feel. That will never change.
Okay. I'm just talking about throttle response. Is that more than one parameter?

Are you telling us that no matter how much a tune improves throttle response globally, activating sport mode will always make it a little better?

I genuinely wonder how these things would drive with a more conventional setup, 1:1 throttle ratio with a completely shut waste gate and blow off valve that are just actuated with vacuum/spring pressure. I know this isn't possible but I just wonder what they would drive like......

Slower spool up at lower throttle. It's a 1.5L!
So the techniques to reduce "pumping losses" are why we don't have a super narrow rpm window to make power with.

Their torque capability knowing how small the internals are feels abusive though! Lol. It's unnatural for a 1.5...I want some lag back

You can always ramp boost in slowly! :)
I did that once and it actually worked pretty well but you could tell the little bastard wanted uncorked. Hell even a stock boost table combined into the canned tunes is redonkulous.

The computers just make the dam thing do what it do I guess!!!

I need a 30r is what I need.... that or a 5858 precision.

I promise a 30R will be a lazy, laggy monster on this engine.

A GTX2860 narrowly rides the laggy monster line.

10-4. WOnder how well a good ole fashioned mhi g wheel variant would fair on these motors. Maybe a s16g....probably would support plenty and spool should be in the 3500 range.

Its down right difficult to keep these cars from making torque below 3k and I dont need it there lol
