Dealer tune!

Can the dealer do anything to computer to help with a slight hesitation when taking off from dead stop ?

Re: Dealer tune!

When was the last Tune up on your car? What all was changed?

Re: Dealer tune!

I wish ford would offer a supercharger option. you would be seeing stripped GT's roll right off the truck brand new...... no ac, no radio, no backseat, no extra options, ...just a big supercharged V8, upgraded suspension package, the heavy duty Tremec 3650 5-speed geer box 2 seats and some paint!

Re: Dealer tune!

You can get the Ford Procal Tuner installed by the dealer. It will give you a 1 year warranty from FRPP but after that's over your factory warranty will be worthless most likely.

From everything i read the tune doesn't give much horsepower on the top. It does, however, greatly increase low end torque and automatic shift firmness. Because of these two reasons i'll probably get it when i have 1 year left on my warranty.

Re: Dealer tune!

you can have the dealer check to see if there has been an update compared to the tune you have (if you can find a dealer that knows what they are actually doing.... good luck) and they can update it.

The hesitation right off from a stop is probably due to the drive by wire~ its probably not going to change.

Re: Dealer tune!

Ford programs a little lag into the drive by wire system. Other car makers do as well. Its so the pedal isn't too twitchy in reaction for the average driver. The Ford procal tool will take that out and crisp it up. Not sure if the SCT tool does.

Depends on the tuner, but generally, yes.
