I'm a 29 year old male that's a very good mechanic and it's never been on a form before so don't know much about asking if I did something wrong I apologize all I'm trying to do is get my questions answered and my car fixed I'm I'm sure this question has been asked a blue million times on here and now I'm a blue moon and one again I apologize just don't know how to work forums

Duplicate meaning that's now TWO threads you started on the same subject.

You installed a tune vin locked to someone else's car onto yours. No can do. Return the car to stock as you've been told already.

Return the car to stock, have whoever sold it to you unmarry it and then contact a legit tuner to get a legit remote tuning session setup or take the car to a local dyno guy. Bama tunes are 1- **** to begin with and 2- only good for the original customer. If you want to melt a piston or run too lean or too rich because Bama doesn't actually tune anything you can go with them too... but you will have to pay them $150 to do it. I recommend Tuning by James (google it) for a real good remote tune.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

A locksmith came out for $20 and flashed a car's ECU? I don't even know what the hell he is talking about and I doubt he does either.
