Bama Tune ?s

Hey everyone, as some of you may know I recently had a problem with my bama tunes suddenly starting to ping after a year of use...I eventually got to a full tune up and the pinging was still there, I retarded the timing by 2 in the 0-2000 range and the ping has dissapeared thank god. I do think its a bit odd to begin with that it suddenly started to ping after a year and retarding the timing fixed the issue, its got me thinking that something had to change but could not find the problem, swapped plugs, fuel filter, seafoamed it, all coil packs test fine...anyway I'm trying to set up the 2 step style rev limiter that I've heard of people using with success...well I set my rev limiter neu to 3000 rpm and my rev limiter drv to 6000 rpm, when I load the tune and put car in 1st with clutch in and floor it, it bounces off 3000 and works great, but when I hit 3000 rpm when driving the revs stop at 3k. I've heard of some people having this issue while others have no problems with it, I did tell bama at the time of tuning to add the feature in as well...anybody have experience with this? Thanks

Hm.. this sounds very odd. I've never seen someone run the tune perfectly fine for a year and then randomly start getting a pinging issue. Sounds like you could have gotten a bad tank of gas or two?

Either way I do apologize for the headache! Shoot me a PM with the order number included and I'll look into this for you. I can have our head tuning specialist give you a call directly and make sure your tunes are in good shape. We can set you up with a "rev limiter/launch control" as well!

Hope this helps.

-Dan
