What is the link to the AM threads? *maybe I will just browse around beyond the s197 forums... lol

From Bama this morning:

"Robert,
Iím not sure who the fellow forum member spoke to but the information that they gave isnít 100% accurate. Not sure if this is from miscommunication or not but there are a few things to set straight. You can switch from one custom tune to the next without going to the stock tune in between tunes. We do this all the time and have no issues. If you load the tune and things are not acting right sometimes reloading that tune can help or if it is an idle issue letting the car sit and idle for a good 4-5 min can help the car relearn its idle. This is because reflashing the cars computer will reset its learned settings.

When taking the car back to the dealership for any type of work we do recommend setting the computer back to the stock tune settings. This is because if the dealership does reflash the computer with an update it will lock your tuner out since the computer codes will no longer match up. This may require putting the factory CAI back on if you have a 2005+ Mustang. If you do have mods done that would require a tune to run is where things get tricky and you may have to talk to the dealership about not reflashing the computer this may bring rise to some of the mods that are done and issues with retaining your warranty.

I hope this helps explain things better for you. If you do have any other questions please let us know and we will gladly answer them for you.

So much for listening to advice and passing it on. I guess I should have spoken to more than just one Tuner Guy about this befor I added in this Post. What Ryan said makes sence as I have heard the same from others. But what do you do if your Computer is Flashed by the Delear? Ryan said if this happens that you would have to put back on your Factory Stock Air Box as your Tuner would be (locked out) as the codes would no longer be the same as the one you gave when you had your Tuner set up for your Mustang. So if you are Flashed and you do have to put back on your Factory Air Box and you Cant use your Tuner as it's Locked Out what do you do now???
Thank's for getting ahold of Ryan Ducatti20
Also Ryan only mentioned the issue of (Idel) being the cause, I know that the Computer has to relearn it's process after you Flash it with a new Tune, but did you mention that the Idle was'nt the issue with the Tune and that is was just not acting the same as it did befor?
