At what point is it safe to put tuner on car

How many miles until you reach the break in period. Ready to start tuning however only have 1100 miles on my 2012 Gt. How long should you wait and can a tuner void your warranty?

You can start anytime. I did mine at 46 miles and have been issue free since. However......it will void the warranty.

They say these engines are already broke in. Many have modded these cars right from the go as above.
