You have to remember that a custom tune over mail order isnt always going to be dead on the first time around. But tweaking and datalog checking are ALWAYS free and so is our support on making the tunes the best they can be. If you dont feel a difference on a BamaChips tune then you need to contact me or Doug, because something is probably wrong!!
I contacted Doug about at the same time I came on here. The reason I came here was because I thought I was expecting too much from my previous experiences with tuning, most of which has been with various tunes for my Lightning and Mustang. Thus, I figured I was just jaded and expected too much so I wanted input. But after driving it more I realized something was amiss.
I am more satisfied now. I have what I expected for a 4.0 V6 3,800lb 4x4 truck. LOL I was more concerned with shifting, etc. than power production.
I still don't know why it revs to 2500rpm and holds that for a while (on cold starts after having been ran a couple of hours before) before settling down to 2000rpm (the normal level on cold starts after it sits overnight). That is 500rpm more than it ever reved on a cold start and while it shouldn't hurt anything it still scares me in this cold weather. Is it because I raised the idle RPM? I don't see how they could be connected, but ECUs can be strange...
