THIS IS A GT5 TUNE.
ignore the figures in the fields, as GT4 used different values. Use these for GT5 instead ...

Aero: 70/90
Trans: 249mph or 400kph
LSD: 20/45/50
Height: +5/+5
Spring: 17.2/17.5
Ext: 7/8
Com: 7/7
Anti-Roll: 7/7
Camber: -2.5/-1.0
Toe: -0.15/0.0
Brakes: 4/2
Tires: Racing Soft

ASM off.
Skid Recovery off.
TCS 5.
ABS 1


This setup is for most circuits. But adjustments need to be made to the gearing for slower tracks like Cote d'Azur - try 205mph or 330kph.

Note: this tune is hard core and unforgiving to those drivers that mash the brake and accelerator. So learn to control your braking and throttle smoothly.

UPDATED: This setup is alot easier to drive than my previous settings.
Changed LSD, increased springs slightly, increased dampers compression, rear camber and toe. Increased TCS as well. I'm able to punch out of corners much faster now without the risk of oversteer.

Thanks for posting a GT5 set up. I know the creator of this site has said he will not support GT5 and I can understand why. But I hope more people will post set ups like you did, trying to find set ups in a forum is haphazard at best. This site is great for finding cars and set ups.

Thanks again, will be trying your set up tonight.

Hi GT Vault

I have updated the GT5 FGT setup slightly.
The car is alot more controllable now, even with DS3 users.

Any luck on the Ford GT 06? Since I've been using your tunes for a few years now I've come to rely on your tuning "advice". With that said, I'm trying to determine what would be a good cold air intake system for my 2005 BMW 530i, any suggestions? Just kidding... no, but really... any ideas? Actually I just wanted to say thanks for sharing your knowledge and hard work with us.

Ford GT 06 tune is still in progress. I've been forced to do the GT5 grind to get more money last few days. Disgusted

Without knowing what you have already done to the 530i, I'd suggest a Dinan cold air intake.
Dinan's quoted hp gains are true figures, not rounded up like some.
They are also true cold air intakes. Not hot air intake.

BMW NA engines in general are tuned up pretty high on performance already. There just really isn't alot out there for BMW NA motors to gain much HP.

Are you planning on an exhaust system, then pulling all your mods together and maxing them out with an ECU reflash?

The ECU reflash was next after the intake. I started with K&N but they don't make an intake system for that model/year. I looked a little on Dinan's web site and wasn't sure if their stuff was expensive and worth it, or just expensive. Unfortunately the more I think about making my daily commuter a little quicker, the more I think I should just buy an M5. What type of racing were you involved in? I was fortunate when I was younger to be friends with a family that brought a young Dutch driver named Ari Luyendyk over to the US to race american Super Vee and then Indy series. Got to attend a couple years worth of Indy races here. Is it possible to PM or is this the only method of communicating here?

Maybe try AFE if pricing for Dinan is too high.
