2014 GT and Bama tune

How many miles do you think before doing a tune ? Can you run a street 93 octane on a daily driver ?
Thanks.

The warranty is all you need to worry about. So I waited to about 8000 miles. If anything was going to fall apart or have problems. I figured id seem the in the first 10,000 miles. But I couldn't wait that long. I would at least wait till after your first oil change.

You can run the 93 and race tune as a dd. I do either 93 race or performance.

It was explained that

Street: More lowend grunt but less high end HP

Performance: more high end HP and better throttle response

Race: most powerful tune with the most high end HP

Hybrid: combination of Street and Race which confuses me... Why would the race tune's low end power be less than the street tune? Hybrid should be the race tune because its their most aggressive tune but you have to ask for it.

Ask yourself this. Why would you need or want more than one tune? I understand if your running nitrous or e85. But wouldn't you want the best all around tune that makes the most power, is drivable, and is relatively safe? I just don't get why the need to run a 93 race, then a 93 performance, then a 93 hybrid, for what? So your butt dyno and your mind can play tricks on you? And people wonder why their handhelds and PCMs brick all the time.

Yes, a 93 Race tune is perfectly fine to run all the time. I installed my 93 Bama Race tune on my 2011 GT with 1,200 miles on it and have put about 6k on it so far and have absolutely no issues. The car runs great and still pulls like the day I got it!

Go ahead and tune her. The stock coyote internals are junk so I would do whatever you want to it.
