Not to be cynical or anything but I would have to ask how many of our 3.7's have over 100k on these "hot" tunes from MPT or Steeda that they are using at the strip? Maybe I am wrong and there are lots of 3.7s out there with tons of miles on these same "hot" MPT or Steeda tunes.

But I am pretty sure that almost all of the tunes BAMA has sent out no doubt are on the "safe" side for DD considerations. I know that I (like many) run the BAMA 93R tune in my DD but I am not going to dream it's going to be the "best" when running down a strip that's just wishing to have your cake and eat it too IMHO.

If you are getting tunes just for your 1/8th or 1/4 then sure I am betting there are lots of tweaks that "can" be done the question is how is it going to be if you leave it in there long term?

For instance running mildly lean short term would be more performance, long term... well don't expect to have much of a long term. IE you are not going to be able to use it as a DD.

Hell you know even just going lighter weight on your engine oil will increase times too right? but who's going to go there, and then expect it to function as normal for their DD?

Just tossing it out there
