Yes it sucks to have had as many problems with mpt like you have had, id be upset also, but I'm sure your engine is just fine. That's why bama/mpt/steeda ect have data logging, to solve problems like this. I really like bama and have zero issues to date, but a few have had terrible experiences with them, sometimes thats just how the cookie crumbles. These are email tunes and will sometimes require some data logging to get it right.

Never had any issues with Bama tunes either.

I've got over 100 MPT data logs on my car and I'm a happy camper. Bama was only willing to give me 1, and that was still a half second slower in the 1/4 on back to back to back to back passes (Bama, MPT, Bama, MPT).

You have to realize they are pretty much playing whack-a-mole trying to fix an issue while only seeing a window into how the car behaves. That said, I've never seen the issues that you have experienced with pinging and loud noises. I had an AFR issue for months that turned out to be a vacuum leak under the intake manifold. Are they commanding an AFR at WOT that is too lean for your liking or is the car not getting as much fuel as it is asking for?

Get a real tune not a ghost cam tune.
You run ghost cam you're asking for it not to be perfect. It's just dumping fuel.....
I wouldn't bash all MPT tunes like you are because you had an experience with your ghost cam. Nothings wrong with your car, no damage, it just seems like you expected too much from a ghost cam email tune.

Exactly sir, not a DD tune. Its a gimic used for a car show or cars and coffee meet at most. Personally, I think there silly even for that but certainly not a daily driver tune.

Where did I ask for it to be perfect? Where in any post did I bash all MPT tunes? Nothing's wrong with my car because I stopped running the crap tune. Had I kept running some of the revisions who knows what would have happened. That's not the point here. The point is I purchased a tune that never did what it was advertised to do. I asked for a refund and was refused. Despite their Facebook page that says if your not 100% satisfied let us know, we will do whatever it takes blah blah blah.

Do you work for MPT? Seems like...

Well considering Grabber lives up north and MPT is down south Florida I believe, no he does not work for MPT. :what:

Trying to fake the funk makes you a punk!

I'm happy with my MPT 87 & 93 street tunes but I have given up on my ghost cam tune as well. None of the 3 versions I received are right & all 3 of them have issues settling and staying in the simulated lope. I guess 2 out of 3 ain't all bad but definitely wish I had gotten something different & saved the extra money

It's a ghost cam tune. It dumps fuel. You're not gonna get perfect idling or driveability with it. It's meant to be run without cats, so I hope you don't have cats or your complaints are kinda moot. The worst it could do is mess up your cats. Seems like you didn't do enough research into exactly what a ghost cam tune is and what it entails before buying it. Nothing bad was gonna happen to your car lol. Calling a tune "crap" is bashing. Truth is, nothing is probably wrong with your tune at all. You just have an unrealistic expectation of what it was gonna be. Do I work for MPT? Lol. Maybe if you read my tuner review thread you would understand how ridiculous that claim is.

There's a reason I don't run the ghost cam tune and its because it's for ricer teenagers and people who put it on for a show day. It's NOT A DD TUNE. It is basically impossible to get it perfect through an email tune and a few data logs.

Wait, that dude wasn't running the ghost cam tune with his cats on??????? Everyone knows you need the cats to be gone for that silly tune. I mean everyone that has looked into getting the ghost cam tune that is, knows the cats MUST be removed. I'm sure that dude , removed the cats for the ghost cam tune.

A tune that causes your car to knock and ping with a messed up AFR is not crap? I'm sorry why don't you run those "not crap" tunes on your car for a while... "Nothing bad was going to happen to your car". Really? How did you come to that conclusion? Using the same logic as above? LOL

Calling a tune crap, that is actually crap is called truth telling not name calling. If the shoe fits wear it. Its not bashing if its the truth.

Never said I wanted perfect idle any where. Where did you get that? I purchased a tune specifically to have a NOT perfect idle.

Unrealistic expectation? I researched quite a bit and have seen the tune in person on other 3.7 mustangs. I spent almost two hours driving another friends 3.7 with the same tune before making the purchase and after making several calls to MPT. I believe I had a very realistic expectation. Your assumptions are equally ridiculous.

When I received the first tune it was nothing like what I had experienced in person. When I called I was given the reason that their server had crashed and they sent me and old version which looked weird upon review. Then later after other revisions I was told I was probably using a winter blend of gas and that was the culprit. I live in FLORIDA and use top tier gas. They made excuses, they made revisions, they made some progress, they made me not want to do business with them in the end.

Idk why people keep buying these pre made tunes and expect them to be awesome? Its like buying a cookie cutter piece its not gonna work the exact same for everyone, honestly id say just find a good tuner and have your car dyno tuned that way its your cars individual best tune not some tune a guy made on a computer plugging in the parts you have on your car but real runs with atmospheric temps actually tuning your car just my .02

It might be that because to date, there is zero evidence to say anyone's dyno tune is better. All the fastest NA cyclones are tuned by MPT. But you are right that the car should be retuned for real conditions and that is what datalogs are for.

In the real world you drive with wind in atmospheric conditions not something some guy coded himself from states away, that is why a custom tune will be better, its tailored to your car its smoother not nearly as many issues as well as doesnt take you guessing with a map some dude jotted up damage your engine while you run it ie the piston slapping and wait for him to tweek it using data logs and guestimation, so yes its more real world you are in your local area actually using the car and adjusting real time, and at least the shop i go to cost as much as one of the mpt tunes if not less 265 an hour to be approximate

Not saying they wont get you started in the right general area but you cant expect some guy hundreds of miles away to be able to give you a perfect solid tune within about 3 adjustments and those 3 adjustments could seriously damage your engine, now if you put mods on your car get the tunes and use them to drive to a dyno i understand but wot on an tune like that is asking to damage your engine, your better off going to a dyno and getting it dialed in for your car and area rather than blowing your engine, theres a reason they dont offer a warranty for their tunes on your engine the shop i go to garuntees you wont have issues with the engine nor a blown engine for a year no matter how drastic the tune, just saying you cant really bash a tuner who is writing your tunes so far away with no dyno just maps not fair to expect so much from them, and i believe the fastest mpt cars were dynoed and tuned by mpt just saying

Haha sounds like someone is touchy haha i was trying to say you cant expect so much out of those guys given what they have to tune your car, seems like the remote tuner crowd is 'sensitive' on the subject hahah

Haha I just can't take ppl trying to shove their wrong opinions down other people's throats as fact. If you don't like something, fine don't do it. Leave the rest of us alone.
Build is almost done!!!! Hopefully this week . It's been finals so I haven't had much play time. I was making about 525-550 rwhp which was way too much so I had to switch to a much bigger pulley to be safe... We will see where she's at this week!!!

Idk how an opinion can be wrong thats contradictory? But when they write multiple threads about how it takes so long to get it write it seems like someone isnt getting it. If all everyone did on a thread is give eachother handjobs and high fives thered be no point in posting the thread at all different opinions progess eachother, so instead of mocking how a dyno tune is done or getting so sensitive just state how a remote tune has its advantages (not intending to sound like a prick but i reread it an it may come off bad to some)

Honestly i got mine because when i installed the cai and tb my car idled very high the rpms wouldnt return to normal as regular speeds(it took about 5 min to go from 3k to 1k in nuetral and if i dropped my clutch in second from a stop my car would pull itself all the way up to 30mph which its right hah so i didnt have time to get a handheld i took it to a tuner watched him tune it and we talked the whole time about handheld vs dyno and the benefits and disadvantages considering he uses handhelds to data log for the dyno as the best possible scenario

Except if you do a couple of datalogs for whatever tuning company you're working with, suddenly you have a tune that is just as good as going to local joe blow and running it on their dyno.

A lot of the tuners around here start at $500-550 for a custom NA dyno tune. For a mild bolt on car, you can't tell me that after a couple of datalogs & revisions from a company like Steeda or MPT that the custom tune will be worth the extra $400+. The tune will be dialed in for your fuel, your conditions, your exact car. This isn't the stone age anymore.

For most customers ... the mail order tune is perfect for their wants & needs ... and ... for other customers, they may want something more custom.

To Mariusvt's point, for $99.00 for a single tune & $150 for tunes for life it is a small investment for more power, drivability, etc.

It is all in the preference of the customer & the amount they want to invest.
