    This is all I've ever seen. https://mirageforum.com/forum/showth...-control/page3

    Though there was a post claiming that some guy oveseas got 100 hersepowers from just a tune but never could come up with any proof.
    These aren't exactly fast cars.

    It was 115 hp. And it turns out, it was 115 hampster power, and was measured on a dyno made in Taiwan.

    Not saying you can't do those performance mods but just be careful. The Mirage has a history of throwing up weird codes and dash lights with any tweaking of its electronic systems.

    It's hard to tell but it kinda looks the car in the op's sig has considerably larger than stock wheels. That or I'm huffing too many fumes again?

    No, I agree. They look frickin' huge, like they're 17" or something? You see the monster Mirage yet?

    You gotta admit, the front fascia design of the 2014 & 15s are the most unique.

    Any "performance chip" is usually a hack at best... as far as I'm aware there isn't anyone around here that can do a custom tune for these things... nor would you want to because you want to play nice with the CVT. I'd suggest go towards improvements in handling.

    How can you tell they are 18" wheels?

    He's done one post on the forum, and the pics does't look that clear to me.
