I have a 2011 v6 auto and a month ago I purchased a bama sct tuner from American Musscle online for 379.00 dollars . I currently have loaded a 91 performance tune. Dude, it f ing rocks. The best $ 379.00 spent. Huge difference. The tune makes all the difference. It transforms your pony into a stallion.
I was leery about it when I was reading up on it. I finnaly decided to pull the trigger and buy one. So worth it. The stang pulls way harder. No more delay from the throttle when you juice it and give it go baby. No more speed rev limit. 145 is gonna happen on open road. No more skipping over gears when accelerating slowly. Dude, so worth it. If you lived near me, I would tune your pony up for free just to show you how sweet it is.

You can't use a tuner from one car on another without unlocking it. A practice our forums main sponsor would not like... The bama tunes are great. Can't wait for my Mach 1 tune.

Yes, but my understanding of that is if the dealer can show proof the issue was caused as a direct result of the Tune. If not, I think you have a case against them and they should fix the warranty issue. I called American Musscle and asked them. They guarantee and stand behind there product will not cause issues with your engine and other parts. They told me if a dealer wont fix the issue with your warranty work because the dealer claims the damage was caused by the tune then American Musscle will pay to fix the problem. So they told me when I asked them the same question as you gave about voiding the warranty.

It is nothing for a dealer to have probable cause that a tuner caused an engine malfunction. The reason is that everything is controlled by the computer. By going in and changing the factory "Safe" tune, it's easy for them to say that a combination of change to the timing, fuel load, shift points, air monitoring ALL led to the failure. If you engine fails after a tune, regardless of what caused it, they can and most likely void your warranty, which can and will most likely include the entire power train (motor, trans, rearend).

I agree totally. They find any excuse to void warranties. I had a jeep dealer try an tell me that they wouldn't cover the navigation system in my wrangler cause there was dried up mud on the under-carriage therefore I was off roading and made a wire come loose. There argument was toasted when I showed them the factory brochure of a jeep offroading.
Unless your dealer is an authorized FRPP dealer, we ain't gonna get to much leeway, and even then it ain't much.

Anytime, glad I could help. Reality you could have an issue with your dealership when it comes to warranty work if you use a tuner on the car. For me I'm glad I got to tuner and my car is just a year old. With that said hopefully I will not have any engine failures during the warranty or even long after that.

If there is an issue and the dealership will not take care of the problem that I will be calling american muscle for help.

91 and 93 refer to the octane rating in your gas. You can tune a car by adjusting the air/fuel maps and a wholr bunch of other parameters. Tunes also sharpen up throttle reaponse a lot and that is largely what people feel. A good tune will go a long wayd to optimising everything. Stock tunes leave a lot on the table.
