2014 #7 cylinder?

I have a 2014 gt/cs. My car was in the service job for an oil change the other day. The tech told me that he noticed my car had a tune. He told me to be carful because the 2014's with a tune have been running lean and it burns up cylinder number 7. Has anyone else heard this? I know the 2011-2012 had trouble with the number 8 cylinder.

All cars can have issues with the #8 cylinder from 2011-2014 not just the 2011-2012 cars. That is the cylinder that runs the hottest.

the tech should have noted the exhaust updates and assumed at the least. If he was tech and not just a grease monkey
