Tune question

If the battery was disconnected or replaced. Would it erase the tune you have? Would it reset the computer to stock?

Re: Tune question

i don't think so. i just recently got back from some military training in california and i had to completely replace my battery and it seems that my race tune is still on. couldn't hurt to retune it though i suppose.

I didn't think so. I recently had the clutch and flywheel replaced and it seems to be a little sluggish. I don't feel the same power as before. It was a Ram clutch and was replaced with I'm not sure. I was low on funds and needed it done quick being my car is my daily driver. Would the clutch make that much of a difference? It used to stand up and go when I let out the clutch.

It's been so long since I've had a clutch replaced, but I know they need to go through a break in period. Not sure how many miles that is, hopefully they told you this. You might go easy for how ever many miles they told you. After that, it should grab good for sure. Maybe cable adjustments are in order? It should start to grab around an 1" to 1.5" off the floor. Then, on the highway, you should feel it start to slip after about 1" pushed in.

Re: Tune question

It would feel different if you had an Aluminum flywheel and they replaced it with a steel.

Yeah is going to feel different. I noticed mine is slower out of a dig but I think it's cause your not getting to momentum that a heavier flywheel would give, but it should rev quicker and feel faster thru the gears if that makes any sense. Lol

That certainly does happen! I don't know how cold it gets in the winter where you are, but in Feb-Mar around here, my car felt like a rocket. Soon as the temps and humidity set in, your could definitely feel a difference.

Well, I'm in Houston and it never gets cold. Always humid and nasty.
