Speedometer will be off and you'll be racking up more miles on your odometer faster than you actually will be

My understanding is that it will put more stress on your tranny. You shift points change if you have an automatic. If you have a manual then don't worry about it

With a manual, your odometer and speedometer will both be wrong. If you had a manual, shift points would be wrong too.

30 days shouldn't matter. I doubt your the first in this situation. If you got a code, then stop! Codes will burn in over time and you will never get rid of it. Definitely get the tuner. Diablosport works really well.

I'm curious how it would hurt your transmission or cause it to shift any differently...never ran into that problem before...

Codes don't "burn in over time".

Some people really need to check their information...

Yea I'm with you, he stated he has a manual so the tranny is fine, only the odometer and speedometer will be the important things to worry about

My guess it is might be a misunderstanding between "pending codes" and Hard codes that turn on the CEL. Both can be viewed or cleared in the Andriod App "Torque" with a USB dongle.

Hahaha

OP I wouldn't, especially if auto,
Your transmission and engine won't like it.
It'll say 3k, and you'll actually be turning 5k.
Shift points will be off.
It'll throw your entire system out of whack.
Just play it safe and get a tuner.

Look guy, I'm going to be blunt. Don't take the cheap way out on your $30k+ car. A tuner costs 1/100th of what you paid for your GT.

A speeding ticket would be a negative affect. just get the tuner ASAP or bring it to a dealer to change the axle ratio in the tune if u never plan on doing any mods that require a tune ever.

Dealer will only be able to do why comes in stock cars.
For a v6, they can tune for 2.73 or 3.31

Actually, completely the opposite. The 3:73 gears helps the transmission work easier NOT add stress. Its better for your transmission.

I personally bought my tuner first so that I wouldn't run into this issue, but I've got an auto, so it's a different situation haha. Also, you don't know what might happen in those 30 days. Something could come up, that doesn't allow you to buy the tuner, so now your car is still racking up extra mileage for longer than you planned.

I'm not sure about this but its something to think about. I think your 'Advance Trac' might go crazy. Since your speed and rpm will be miss matched, your 'Traction Control' 'might' start applying the brakes and all kind of crazy things. Maybe?.........

I believe traction control looks for speed difference between individual wheels, if all the wheels go the same speed you should be fine
