Have you been sending your info in when you get new mods and having them write you new tunes?!? Every mod you get you're supposed to have them wrote you a new set of tunes for man.

And just so you're not mislead. A tuner does not disable the governor. When you're tuning the car and it has you look through additional options, that's where you can take the speed limiter off. The tunes don't come written that way

Rough idling as well? Jeez so many possibilities. Roll your sleeves up and go ahead and start cleaning your TB and MAF sensor. PCV valve may be a good idea to replace as it is fairly cheap and cut be causing air circulation chokeholds. When is the last time you replaced the wires and plugs? And is it sputtering at idle or when you drive it does it misfire. Could also be an incredibly clogged fuel filter as stated before. May want to try seafoaming your vacuum system to clean out all of your hoses and things like that. List of what I would do goes in this order

Fuel filter
Plugs and wires
Clean tb and maf
Exhaust gas recirculating valve would not cause that significant of problems.
Replace 02 sensors.
Pcv valve
And then end by seafoaming your crankcase and vacuum lines
Change oil 500 miles after seafoaming crankcase

This entire list can be done in about 5 hours and 200 dollars later, and it is all incredibly worth it. I cannot stress enough how much maintenance like this contributes to saving a cars life. Most expensive thing would be the wires..

Well, the diablosport predator has many options of tunes for almost every type of CAI, octane and you can also modify it if you know how to, so there's no need. Also it automatically disables the speed limiter but you can enable it manually if you wish. It's a bit different from the bama one but it's awesome!

Maf sensor n TB I cleaned about a month back. Plugs n oil n air filter changed about 1000 miles back. Fuel filter changed about 200 miles back. Wires, not done. O2 sensors, r about 150 dollars here. Each. Haven't got around to that yet...

This is what my obd2 reader is saying. Not that it makes much sense to me though.

Check your wires. Ignition points on the coil pack as well. Not getting enough spark it sounds like it had to be an ignition problem. Fuel pump would just make it impossible to start the vehicle. A pcv valve is like an overflow for air I believe, although I do know that if it's restricted or kinked it can cause the vehicle to choke off and not run properly, but that's more of a subtle issue. If you're rough idling it probably isn't that. I see that your idling at mid 600 which the vehicle might as well be shut off gotta be wires or atleast connection points with the coil pack. If their stock wires you need to change those suckers now. Pull em of on both ends and check the metal points, see if they're burnt? Also were the plugs put in correctly? Gapped too much?? Sounds like you're missing to me

Hi guys.. Can you post a few pics of your engine bay? So that I could see if I can notice anything wrong with mine or anything out of place? Or maybe mail me to me? Thanks...

Hahahah told you man. That pcv valve will mess you up. Replace it and tell me how it runs after. Their 60 dollars at O Reilly's. It's worth it if that's what's giving you problems
