Anyone out there offer an engine warranty with a tune? I would pay an extra few hundred for that.

TJ, does Steeda have a military discount of any sort or any type of forum discounts? Thanks.. I was waiting to buy a tuner when I got back from deployment, and was gonna go with AM, but now I'm debating again..

Also is there a Hybrid Tune through Steeda? What types of tunes are covered through the tunes for life?

Thanks

Should it be determined that indeed the tuning was the cause of the engine failure and not abuse, over revving, improper fuel octane, etc, then we would work with the customer on resolving the failure.

TJ, is that backed in writing somewhere? Not saying Steeda wouldn't help but that is a hefty statement to be putting out there. Defining what "work with the Ford dealer" really means is important here. I would like to know what we can truly expect from Steeda if something did go south.

Its actually been proven its not bad. They've tested it by running the tune as a dd for months and ripped apart the engine when doing a forge kit and it had normal wear to cams springs everything. U may not like it or think its bad but yet again its not your car so who cares if its bad or not so long as u dont oay our bills. Not being rude just saying u know.

Lemme try and find up the link. It was a performance shop employee that ran it for awhile and when he boosted his car he wanted to check if it actually hurt his car or not since no one has actually shown evidence that it hurts the car. So when he ripped apart his car for the engine mods to support the boost he didnt find anything besides normal wear. Give me some google time haha

The warranty response that I provided is on the forums and is our stance on the subject.

Basically, the run-down is that simply installing a part (or tune) will not void your warranty, the problem comes when something goes wrong and you take it in to have the dealership fix the problem. The dealership is able to void your warranty if it sees that you have an aftermarket part related to the powertrain, according to the law (Magnuson Moss Warranty Act). But just installing the parts will not void you warranty.

The dealership has to prove the part(s) (or tune) caused the damage.

Steeda has a close relationship with Ford via their Technology Transfer Program and we also sell our Serialized Performance Vehicles at select dealerships.

So most dealers are not going to give you any troubles over your Steeda parts.

The lope tune is a very hard tune to dial in. Some cars respond very well to it and others do not react well to it. Management has opted not to include it in the tunes for life program.

Best Regards,

TJ

Well stated and that sounds great. Seeing a Steeda CAI and tune in the near future. What kind of gains are people seeing. Stock 13 BBP, TP, with Roush exhaust.
