Good point, and I agree with you. Just thought I wouldn't be surprised if GM tried harder to protect these new engines. I will be very interested to see what a tune can do for the new LT1 V8

Valid point. But the ECU is written by a human, which means a human can break it. IF we were talking about the V6 then I'd say we might see the same issue as the 2010-2011 V6s. However the big V8's will have adequate attention focused on tuning it, I think.

Just looked at a few Mustang V6 videos with root and centri style chargers and they don't make much more power than the C5's. Only one i seen make 427rwhp with a procharger. Cant wait to see the numbers for this kit.

Yes and no. Yes, every code can be cracked but you sure can make it hard as hell for someone to do it. The challengers use a random encryption and I think they are barely starting to be able to get into those

Yea they might make almost the same amount of horsepower but they seem to put up drastically different times than out v6s
How I wish our cars could do this

I agree LSC, It's the rear end on the mustangs that makes the difference IMHO. Also since they have factory option gears is a plus.

Another factor that kills us Camaro V6 owners is the fact that mustang was never discontinued. As the mustang always has had the non stop support. When the new V8's start to hit the streets tuning our V6's will become easier.
