Idling issue

About 2 weeks ago I put a 93 octane bama race tune on my 2010 v6 and whenever I stop driving and put my car into park theirs a small shudder that comes from my engine for about 2 or 3 seconds then it goes back to normal. Any ideas on whats causing it?

Is it idling higher then usual?

Maybe you should Data log and send your results to Bama so they can fine tune your tune.

It seems fine until those 2 or 3 seconds come and then it makes this shudder noise and the car kinda shakes and the rpms slightly rise. I think ill try the data log since this wasnt happening when I didn't have the tune. Sorry I'm new to tuners but how do I do the data logging on the tuner?

Hmm, I have seen some Automatics do some odd things when throwing them in the park, stock or tuned! We can definitely look into this for you and make sure it's not within the tune and if it its, fix it quickly. We send out thousands of tunes and build them all from the ground up for your PCM code and your mods. They're not just "canned" tunes, they're built custom by our team, so every once in a while it's possible we mess one up! We'll definitely get it straightened out for you, though! Give one of our Bama Tuning Specialists a call and they'll work with you to figure out exactly what's going on.

Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST

Check your TPS (throttle position sensor)

Check the CAI install for any unmetered air leaks, such as around the throttle body connection, the cone filter connection, and the mass air flow sensor. That should only screw in one way on the tube, but remove it and check for damage anyway.

this is what was going on with his. leaking air led to unmetered air going passed the censor which was most noticeable when he was idling but sometimes he would also feel bogging while driving I believe. can't hurt to check
