What intake do you have roger? Yeah I heard there is no flash counter either so we should be able to tune our cars without a warranty issue since all you need to do is flash it back to stock before you bring your car in for warranty work. Did you get to ride in any of the cars?

I have a LMR/CAI When i put it on I went for a test drive and it turned on the check engine lite,I called LMR and they said the tune may need to be tweaked a little,so I called the guy that tuned it.He messed with it and said the MAF sensor was acting crazy,he got the lite to go off for about 10 miles.The car kinda surged while driving in town,but it ran the best ever at the track.But talking back and forth with LMR and my tuner I went to Houston tue. They worked on the car 8 hrs., 1 hour after we left it was running the same again,So now they say the MAF is positioned wrong in the tube I have and they are sending me another one.So we'll see

Yes they did 348 hp 368 tor. thats the same as the first tune I got from EPS here in town. They ran at least 8 WOT runs and it still didn't run good,I have the stock airbox back on it now. Cars runs and drives great, but check engine lite is on.

Well the stock airbox is back on it now,I talked to them today and they shipped out another tube today so I'll try it when it gets here.Kinda POed about the whole thing,I thought they could fix the problem with their product,but they filed and gouged on the opening where the MAF goes and left it like that,kinda like they were hoping it would workKinda makes me wish I'd waited on Vararam.

Well I've used 2 different speed shops on this car and I have not been pleased with either.First Thunder Racing sold my parts to someone else and I had to wait for more headers and exhaust to come in. Then I get a CAI from LMR put it on and the car runs like crap go back to the tuner, no luck, I go to LMR because they said they could fix it...8 hours later the car still ran like crap.They sent me a new tube today, put it on and so for car does not like it.Not sure what the final outcome will be,but I will put some more miles on it Sunday,but if it doesn't get better the stock airbox will go back on.So right about now I wish I had gone to Futral. Check out this picture of what LMR did to this tube they sent me home with.
