Thats the exact kind of intel I'm looking for, thanks. But I really dont want to have to reset my car via battery every week or two either. Pulling fuse 47 wont mess with my tune, correct? Could I just do that?

Not 100% sure. You dont have to do it every week or two. Once every 1-2 months is probably fine. And that is only if you notice the car becoming "Tame". If it still drives fine, then you shouldn't have to worry about it.

What happened to all that recent discussion that most tunes alter the effects of adaptive tuning, like Bama and MPT"?

The following thread, I believe, mentions that both Bama and MPT do not recommend it.

Had a strange occurance after pulling fuse #47

EDIT: This may not apply to the base SCT tune, however.

Yea that is why I wasn't sure on just pulling the fuse so I did not recommend it. But usually for most performance mods and electrical stuff you have to disconnect the battery any way. So I don't see why unhooking the battery would be an issue.

Of course, like many topics, there were many people that were strongly against pulling the fuse after being tuned and then there were those that swear it still makes a positive difference. In fact, many have added the relays that do it automatically every time you shut the car off.
So we're back to the beginning again. LOL

Yea, I guess every car can be different so this is something the owner will have to test out and see what they think is best.

I doubt an sct tune touches the adaptive learning much like the others. It would be a question for sct themselves.

Well if the adaptive learning is controlled by the transimssion computer (which is what I understand fuse 47 resets?) and a tune only changes the ECU settings, then wouldnt logic dictate that resetting the TCU(pulling fuse 47) would simply kill any bad "learning" the teansmission did while not touching the tune?

Unhooking the battery sucjs vecause it resets everything and is prob not good to make a habit of doing.

Well, all I can say is you are the owner so you will be the one to know best on your end what you can handle/deal with doing on that portion.

Mpt and Bama do something to change the "adaptiveness" of the transmission. I would send them an email and see what they say specifically though

Mpt is probably best for your car. They know their stuff when it comes to cyclones.

For older history:

The 05-10 V6 is called Cologne
The 05-10 V8 is called Modular
The 99-04 V8 is called Modular
The 99-04 V6 is called Essex

That's just the name of the engines. Of course, their body styles and such have their own names.

Good to know I dont have a boat anchor! Lol

Im going to contact MPT and see if I can get some solid intel on the adaptive learning. If they can shut that crap down I'm sold!!!!

They don't shut it down as far as I'm aware. Just change the "adaptivness" I believe
