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.

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.
