Novitec Upgrade to Levante

Interesting, but pretty happy with my stock S in Verde Ossido. I'm a;so not sure what real use lowering the ride more is.

Lowering it more could probably give you some better handling but I don't find it necessary with a Levante. Yeah it looks great and all but I can do without it. The wheels don't look too bad though.

I'll never understand the need to lower an SUV or crossover that was designed to sit higher than the average sedan. The cornering should be more stable with less body roll, but getting a coupe will have the same effect.

Lowering is for suspension and handling adjustments and also adds to the overall "look" of the Novitec offering. I'm curious if the upgraded HP/Torque settings make the stock suspension and settings feel off.

I'm pretty happy with the current suspension setup and look of the Levante as far as ride height etc. It's handled some gnarly runs so far, including some canyon carving here in Colorado without any issues.

It's for when you want to have coupe like performance with the space of an SUV

To anyone here looking for a tune, what would you say is a reasonable increase in power and torque?
I figured this would be a great question since many members here had enough seat time to know how much of an increase they want, even where along the power band.

Something around 20-30whp perhaps? I think that's a decent number for just a base map tune and the average you typically see?

I had the ECU remap done with my car (Diesel)
before 275 HP 600Nm
after 305 HP 660Nm
I can feel a significant increase in performance after the remap. However, if you want to look different here's an alternative: Mansory

cheers.

Novitec released another Levante edition called the Esteso. Also released ecu upgrades.

Diesel goes from 275hp to 322hp and 680Nm of torque
Petrol 430hp reaches up to 494hp and 660Nm of torque

I don't like the rear wheel fender flare, it is too low profile, it should look more gradual like the front wheel fender. I understand there are design limitations due to the fuel cover but they could have pushed it up further and it would have looked more balanced. Not a fan of this.
