Mi03svt, First off, I'm sorry you were put in this situation, I have no doubt it's very frustrating. Lets see if we can clear the air a little here, I feel there's a little miscommunication possibly.
All our tunes are custom made by hand for each car and not off the shelf canned tunes. However, we're unable to see each cars personal characteristics or traits they have, which can be corrected easily on a dyno. Without this information, tuning has to be limited to more minor bolt on cars with factory sensors so they're more consistent with their "reactions" to other similar stock cars. This way the base tune can only be so far off when uploaded in multiple bolt-on cars and stay in a safe non threatening range (before tweaked for certain bolt-ons).
The reason we're unable to tune your Termi is because the maf calibration has changed once you installed the BA MAF you bought. We can't count on the same consistency like the stock MAF and write up a tune. Bama Performance's main concern is SAFE TUNES for all of our customers. Without tuning on a dyno, it's impractical to write a powerful and safe tune based on characteristic assumptions with an aftermarket maf.
I wanted to give you the full details of the situation so you didn't think we are unable to tune your car "just cause." I don't want to lose you as a customer over this either. Let me know if there's anything I can help you with or if you would like to know a recommended Speed shop to tune your car on a dyno with your new BA MAF. Either way I'd be happy to help out!
