Off road x question
Hey guys, first post!
I have a quick question for y'all, and I did try searching, but apparently I couldn't find anything relating exactly to what I was trying to ask, so if there is already a forum on it, please post it because I didn't find one.
So I just bought a 2012 GT 5.0 a few months ago. It has 5k miles. I also purchased a Magnaflow tru x off road x from a guy I knew. So before I go to install it, I figured I should look into a tune as well to maximize gains and to eliminate the CEL that is sure to follow. Well I started reading horror stories of cylinder 8 issues so I backed off of the tuner for now, hoping that if it is a tune issue, that it'll be straightened out soon. So my question is, if I were to install the X and didn't tune, other than the cel and lack of extra power if it were tuned, would it damage the car in any way? I will eventually tune, but for now what would be the consequences of installing w/o a tune?
Thanks again guys. And I hope to become a very active member here!
