most tuners add their own flavor to the tunes. Using SCT value files is asking for trouble.Sounds like the type of gas imo. Keep us posted to see if the Brenspeed tune makes a difference. I know the AM tunes are the same program as SCT though.
If multiple well know tuners cause detonation on your car then the problem is probably your car. Maybe some carbon deposits on the valves? Do you drive the piss out of it on a regular basis? Do you have the right plugs in there?Where should I go from here?
See the guy who posted above me, you should have spent your money with him. Anybody who can put up with tuning MY car over email can put up with anything.$75 more dollars down the drain.. the Brenspeed tune came today, and my car is still pinging.
I don't know what to do. I suppose I'll email Brenspeed and see if they can adjust it, but I'm not sure if that'll help.
Where should I go from here?
Interesting. Maybe I should have gone with a different company... I'm kind of disappointed, I've heard nothing but good things about Brenspeed.by the way i have the same mods you have but the only diference is i got a 93 octane tune.
Im using a 87 tune from Ortiz and my car is running great. I also know that justin at vmp is good too. Have you checked your plugs and wires recently? fuel filter?Hey guys! I also have the same problem as well. I just received my SCT Tuner in the mail yesterday, and I added the 87 strategy tune (everything else as is) and I am hearing pinging noises. I did had a little bit of 89 in the tank when I tuned the car, but then I filled up the car the next day with 87 (along with SeaFoam) to help with the pinging, but no good. Reading these past postings it seems that no one had find a solution for the problem unless a good custom tune was added. Can anyone recommend the BEST custom tune company right now? I will add back my stock tune until I find the good solid custom tune. No sense in harming my baby.
Yes, actually they are all recently new. Like only 2 month new. I converted the tune back to stock and everything is fine. I talked to another guy that ran the 87 preloaded tune (and he have added mods), and he did not get any pinging sound. So, I'm leaning more towards the bad tune. I emailed VMP and hopefully sometime next week they can get in touch with me to see what they can do.Im using a 87 tune from Ortiz and my car is running great.
