You would think a tune written with advancetrac disabled would take care of a minor nuances like that.

Is yours always like that or is it intermittent!?
Intermittent . But yes the light is annoying

My mistake... That's great your able to get it. I've heard it sounds pretty good.

Ghost cam video

Hey guys sorry about the delayed post with the video, I held off on the upload because a car show was doing free dyno's. I tried to get in but the line was too big. Anyway heres the stage 2 ghost cam tune from MPT Performance. Those guys from MPT fricken rock. Their customer service is excellent. They happily answered all of my questions and concerns, and then proceeded to send me tunes that turned my car into a monster. It pulls twice as hard at 4000 rpms and added a good amount of low end. I now have passing power in 6th gear. If your considering a tune, DO IT, and go with MPT you wont be dissapointed.

Heres the short video, didnt do any editing yet but still a decent show of the tune. All I have is a borla s-type axle back exhaust, drop in K&N filter, and MPT Tune. Ill be hitting the track wednesday ill have a video with times. Best stock run is 9.20 in the 8th with hook up problems. Hoping to get in the 8's with the new tune installed.

That ghost cam tune sounds great. Just imagine it with headers and an off-road midpipe haha.

If you're on the mobile app, it won't show up. Try viewing it on a desktop.

I didnt know you could get a ghost cam tune with just axle backs. Sounds frickin sweet man. Have you had a Bama tune to compare to MPT? I always hear people saying MPT tunes are more aggressive. You should get an acceleration video.

before my SC I had bama and was doin 0-60 in 4.9 sec and switched to MPT and did it in 4.6. MPT is great. bama is good also but I think bama is more conservative

Yeah, 3.31 rear end, performance package 6sp MT. When really driving hard I don't let off the gas between shifts and now the tires break free shifting to 4th. This thing is a whole new kind of animal. I can't wait to hit the drag strip this week. If you get a MPT 93 Performance tune you'll love it, and the lope at idle sounds mean

Man I've gotta talk to my dealer and ask about tuning, I hope it's a green light. To anyone with the stock 2.73, what have you got your 60 times down to on a Bama tune? (91 octane is all I have here in SoCal)

Ya we got like the same car. You should definitely post a acceleration vid like 2nd gear or something so I can compare it to my bama hybrid tune.

So of all the company's that offer tunes, who do you feel offers the most powerful and aggressive tune? I keep hearing people say American Muscle is more conservative when making tunes. I personally am loving my hybrid tune from AM and there track record is excellent when it comes to tunes not damaging one engine or transmissions.

With a bama street tune as long as u keep ur foot off the gas ur mpg should stay the same maybe even increase 1-3mpg. If ur getting the tune mainly for increase mpg I don't think it's worth it but if ur getting it mainly for increase performance then it's definitely worth it IMO.

Been following this thread since it's start....I was up in the air as to bama tunes or the MPT; I've decided with the MPT, but it will be the 91 octane, none ghost cam tune, as 92 octane is all over in Florida, and I'm not a fan on the loping idle using extra fuel to do it. MPT offers this tune as well.

My basic 36K warranty is well over (have 49K now), and am ready to wake this 3.7 up a bit. Hope to make the order by Wednesday, and have the tune by the weekend.

Thanks to all that posted on this thread with their experiences.

Will certainly do! It may be next week before it's installed, but my trips from the Daytona area to Tampa two to three times a week should be a good test for it.

Yeah its amazing how much power can be unleashed by a tune on the new 3.7's. Its well worth the investement. I have an MPT 93 ghost cam tune on mine and I'm averaging right about the same maybe 1mpg more. I'm getting about 26mpg combined as long as I drive it real mellow. That's hard to do though because this tune makes it so much fun to put the pedal down. Ill post an acceleration video today. I got a 2nd gear pull from 3500 rpm and a 0-90 pull on video

Yea man a tune really wakes it up!!! Dam that sounds nice!! Can't wait for a video. I'm more than happy with my bama tune but now that I have LT headers & x pipe I might do a ghost cam tune for the track!

It's LOUD man!!! What exhaust are u running? I have it paired with the pype bombs & it's super loud!! I'm gonna tame it with some mufflers or resonators & see how that goes. I love the start up, idle & under 2.5k once u go above 2.5k it rasps loud but some mufflers or resonators should fix that! But I love them & they pull so hard!!

I think they would sound really good with borla s type because those aren't too loud like my muffler deletes! Haha. I'll let u know how it sounds once I tame it down with muffler or resonators!
