I did a lot of researching into the new Mustang GT's before I bought mine. Mostly it was for what were things to look out for or expect for normal quirks. The talk about cyl #8 has got me concerned. An equal amount of research shows people claiming stock tune, and, ALL early tunes causing engine damage. My car is a 2012GT and the previous owner put on, so far as I can tell an airraid CAI and Borla exhaust, I am assuming just axle backs for now until I see the car on a lift.
Since there is a general consensus that if you make pretty much any changes the car will need a re-tune I'm concerned with my car's setup. I don't have enough time in these cars to have a good feel if one is tuned. So far as I can tell, since the dash tells me at odd times to shift 1->4 for fuel economy combined with the mpg I get it appears there is no tune on the car. Or if there was the dealer/ previous owner returned it to factory?
What is the best way I can tell if there is a tune on the car? Do I take it to the dealer and have them match the flash counter against their records? Should I be worried with the CAI install and running the factory tune? I have been looking at Ford's procal to get rid of the skip shift nonsense but I don't see how I would have easy access to data logging with their handheld. Or do they use the SCTx4 that seems to be popular now? I've looked for videos showing a data logging session on the SCTx4 and I have not found anything. Is there a way I can, without buying an AFR gauge read my AFR's and or my EGT's realtime?
I feel like I've got too much information to parse in making a choice here. I've never taken a car to a dyno before but I am wondering if that would be the best thing to do in order to gather all the data on what the car is doing.
I did read this thread, but can anyone chime in if the app allows you to record any of the monitored perimeters?
OBD II Bluetooth monitors
After more reading these obd ii apps do provide data logging
