Bogging at 3K RPM

So I had the procal installed on my 2012 gt about 2 months ago. Love it. However, it's been recently bogging right around 3K. WOT and from 3000 to 3400ish it's like it just loses 50% power. Then it comes back on. Mostly in 3rd and 4th gear.

Any thoughts? Noticed it once before the procal but seems like it's not going away now. Also, oil life meter dropped from 100% to 0% in about 4 weeks. Noticed more black dirt on decklid and bumper-from exhaust?

Try checking you oil like your supposed too, you won't have that problem. There's no way you lost that much on a tank of fuel, unless your filter is not tight.

Dealer changed the oil 6 weeks ago. Not like 6 months has gone by here. And regardless, there's clearly a problem.

Yep only at 20K miles. Procal was installed by dealer. Service manager cleared the installation. Plus, Ford Racing has 36K warranty.

Nope was installed by dealer and precleared in writing. This is why I chose the procal over better tunes.

I would be shocked if they had to replace an engine for you and actually replace it under warranty. Just BC the installer said ford will cover it don't mean they actually will. Just my .02

There's definitely a problem, regardless your oil needs to be checked every fill up. That's how you detect something minor that becomes expensive quick. Doing the math on gas mileage is also a good way, when it starts to vary, somethings up.

Is it possible it was incorrectly filled?

Regardless that's why I do all my own work, period. I trust my ability over any Ford dealer.

His warranty is no longer with Ford, so your right, they won't pay for it. However he does now have the same 36k mile powertrain warranty through Ford Racing. As long as the Procal tune was installed by a Ford technician, he will be covered. As the OP stated, that is a huge reason people go for the procal tune, as Ford Racing offers the warranty with it.

Wait, so modifying a car wipes the warranty right off the slate? Since when did that happen? Are you saying anything drivetrain related is no longer with Ford, but with Ford Racing now?

I've read that when you modify the car, and by chance something on the car goes wrong, Ford has to prove that the modification(s) you installed are the cause of the fault (e.g. suspension fault, check engine, etc.).

For example; If you install a supercharger on Day 1, you drive for 10 days, suddenly your rear axle starts chattering/clicking. So you take the car to Ford, tell them the problem, they re-create the scenario and find the rear end to be faulty.

NOW, from my understanding, you aren't required to tell them about any modifications, so pretty much you pull the car in, tell them the problem, and sit down and wait. I read where someone had a major engine mod, and they replaced the transmission and the Ford Tech's didn't ask/see the modification and they replace the transmission, no charge, out the door. On the other hand, if they DO see/find the modification you've done, they have to prove the modification is what caused the, in the previous example, rear end to be at fault...

This is just my understanding and in no way how it will be at every Ford Dealership

You are almost right lol. If Ford says your mods caused failure, YOU have to prove that they didn't.

I thought I was. I know for sure that modifying your car doesn't literally just throw your warranty away. An explanation of the warranty situation should be a sticky for everyone to reference to and clear up confusion.

Actually, the standard Ford powertrain warranty is 5yr/60,000.

Yes, the standard powertrain warranty from Ford is. But the bumper to bumper warranty is only 3/36k. Im not positive, as i dont have one, but i believe ford racing only covers your powertrain for 3/36k with the procal tune. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. And then obviously with any tune, your factory powertrain warranty will be voided (if the dealer can prove the tune caused the failure).
