for a ghost cam you will most likely burn up your catalytic converters if you have the catted x pipe. and sometimes your car may stall, if i didnt live in Cali and have catted x pipe i would get a ghost cam tune. Lund supposely does a way better ghost cam tune then MPT.

Your cats won't burn up, it has a fail safe to disable the lope if it gets too hot. You do need a high flow catted mid pipe not stock. Lund is the best tuner hands down but not worth it unless ur full bolt on.

Is that with the ghost tune or performance tune from MPT? I have seen it in cars with the ghost. Your SCT tuner can modify fan turn on settings BTW. But best to ask Mike at MPT to see if he can feather it out for you.

I only modify my Revs per mile on tunes so far to get GPS exact MPH speedo readouts; and add back in factory rev and mph limiters so I don't get over speed events in the black-box section of the ECU. Mike worked with me to feather the shifting times on my auto to keep stock rev limits and in the few dry days I have had in the past 4 months it seems to auto shift very very well, and firm.

No Worries, they will fix you up, I did the same thing with my old age eyesight. I turned a 2 into a Z, or a Z into a 2; I cant remember...oh what day is today?

I sent the email about it being my fault, asked for forgiveness, and I think it was about a day and half later.

Yes, you just have to express what it is you really want. They are not fast food. Really, really write out in a document just exactly what you want and paste it into the comments section.

If you want a ghost cam tune, and stock cats make it very mild if you want to use it often, or otherwise the level 2 ghost cam tune on an auto is for car show entry and exit bling only

So I finally got my updated tunes in the other day and I love the ghost cam, it sounds great. There is one thing though that bothers me, when I'm slowing down to a stop sign or speed bump, my car will jump forward with the loping of the ghost cam.

Say, didn't ArtU post recently about changing a 6 into an 8?

Wait, that was an engine, not a serial number!

Most likely because the "lope" idle reflects on the shift points of the transmission.

My MPT tune forces the shift point to be a bit firmer (I like due to less slipage on the transmission...a good thing), and you most likely feel it more because of the idle characteristics of the ghost cam.

I really don't get the reason for the ghost cam...add extra fuel to force a lopey idle, which in turn wastes fuel. Just so that the engine resembles that of a 60's muscle car with a "hot" cam?

Even though I love the sound, I'm probably just going to switch over to the regular performance tune because yea I do hate the crappy mpg

Man, I just don't get the imitation cam lope tune for modern day cars. Its sounds kind of silly in my opinion!

I will say this, though, growing up around and eventually driving those cars and hanging around with friends who had them also, a nice lopey cam sounds like heaven.

I would agree for the muscle cars of the 60's and 70's. The old school cars that had carburetors totally works and sounds awesome. The modern day fuel injected muscle car, The fake cam lope just doesn't do it for me.

Oh yeah, not saying I would want one on mine. From some of the things I have read over the last several months, it sounds like it comes with quite a few negatives, and some people were even saying it was more for car shows than actually using in day to day use.

In the days of old, you installed a cam, based on the RPM range you wanted the power band to be in, and this usually caused the lopy idle.

With our 3.7 and 5.0's, and Ti-VCT (variable timing), we get a great power band in all RPM ranges.
