Yeah that was crazy by a car for its performance claims and then the detune it because its breaking to much for there liking. Only caveat I would say is from what I have heard and from what the calculations on power to weight to gearing those cars are substantially under rated on the spec sheets.

If it's a recall, it is more likely emissions, FE or safety. Those are what usually lead to a recall.

Haven't seen the letter, but if the car is not calibrated to what it was certified for emissions or FE it would be a recall.

If it is a "voluntary" recall that is a different matter.

Guessing, but if it isn't making FE or emissions, it might be making more power. That is the trifecta of balance with durability.

I can feel more power than stock. Not sure on horse power gain. But I do feel the difference. That's why I'm worried that it will hurt it. I don't want to feel like it lacks power after they do that.
