Alright, I think I'm ready to load a tune on my 2013 GT/CS w/ Auto trans
, mainly because of the trans
, although I do have some concerns.
First, I do like the way my tranny shifts for the most part. I live on an Air Force Base and most of time time I just tool around to work and wherever else just barley touching the gas. I like how the trans
shifts at a lower RPM with light throttle and how it shifts VERY smooth. I have no real complaints about the transmission from a daily driver stand point. What can I say, when I'm not jumping on the gas I really enjoy the smooth operation of the car.
Here is what I am looking for from the tune. I'd like it to shift "firmer" at WOT, but at light throttle I'd like the trans
to pretty much behave the way it does now. Again, unless I'm looking to "play" I love how soon the trans
chases O/D and how smooth it shifts. I'd like to retain this type of operation even with a tune.
I hate that I can't do a power brake with the car. I guess in 2013 Ford started making it so the car won't rev over 2K RPM if you mash the gas and the brake at the same time.(Brake Over Accelerator or BOA "feature" I assume?) Can AM fix this with the Intune? Sometimes, a guy just wants to smoke his tires
Last thing is, out of the hole the car isn't really that quick. If I mash the gas from a dead stop on black top, it won't even chirp the tires most of the time. On concrete it will a little, but it still doesn't seem to rev high enough right off the jump to develop any real power. Maybe this is a throttle response issue??? Anyway to fix this?
I've ran several BAMA race tunes in the past with good results, but never with an Auto trans
vehicle. Honestly, I'm just a little scared to spend 400 bucks and than want to put the car back to stock because the "daily drive-ability" of transmission is not good.
Also, you guys still offer the 3yr/36K BAMA number 8 cylinder warranty right?
Could you please explain to me in some detail how you calibrate the auto transmission on the newer GT's? THANKS!
