Tune throwing CEL, Help!

Hey guys, I've been running my MPT 93 Race tune problem free for about a month and a half now. Earlier this week i noticed a check engine light on, so i plugged my tuner in and the code was P0430. Basically this means that the oxygen sensor downstream of the catalytic converter on bank 2 is detecting that the converter is not working as efficiently as it should be (according to specs). I did some reading and figured i'd clear the code and see if it came back, sure enough it did still running the MPT tune. I then cleared it again and switched my tune over to a bama 93 Hybrid. It's been about 2 days, and about 50-60 miles of driving and no CEL yet. Why would simply switching tunes make this problem magically go away? Could it be possible if my MPT tune is running rich it could throw this code? and should i call MPT and let them know about this so they can send me a revised tune? I plan on running my bama tune the rest of today, and then switching it back to stock tune, just to make sure nothing quirky is going on. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated! thanks in advance

Hey,

That is quite odd. The only thing I can think of is that the parameters of their tunes are more fussy to conditions, such as possible changes in air temperature. It wouldn't be a bad idea to give them a call to see if this has been a common problem that has an easy fix.

If it helps, we do offer data logging services to pinpoint the exact issue, and we would be more than happy to assist you with it, but obviously we would not be able to change their tune.

I don't know how easy they are to deal with, but if we can provide any help we would be more than happy to do so.

I hope this helps, and if you need anything from us, feel free to get back in touch. Good luck!

-Dan

Yep. Call the guys over at MPT. They'll fix it, send you a new tune.

They're almost as good as Dan at AM!
