93 race tune ? Your warranty is already voided.

LMAO. You will already beat the 08gt (assuming it isn't highly modded). I took an 08gt that had a tune an 4.10 gears by a nose on Saturday night (legally of course). I have the same setup as you, 93 mpt tune and steeda intake.

A UCA will make a bigger difference compared to LCA's.

Simple LCA control movement front to back. UCA is movement up and down.

Putting the power to the ground, a UCA will he needed.

I went awhile without one and could not hook up from a dig to save my life.

While that may be true, I think the zero warranty issues with Steeda tunes speaks for itself as far as safety. Also, considering their relationship with Ford, it's pretty safe to say that if you want a safe and conservative tune, they are the ones to go to.

I think you need to understand that one said part will not void the entire warranty of any vehicle.

Exactly. If you tune your vehicle and a problem goes wrong with the motor and Ford diagnostics point to the aftermarket tune as the problem, you'll have to replace the motor yourself.

However, say a minute later after Ford tells you your motor is blown and they won't be fixing it, your window actuator breaks and won't roll down. Since the tune obviously did not break that, it'll still be fixed under warranty.

Make sense? Your mod has to be the cause of the problem for warranty work on that specific part/parts to be denied.
