I'm sure it does. Both of mine have the MT-82. I really would like to put a tune in that would give me some lower end torque, but I don't want to loose warranty protection. It seems there are NO power mods at all that won't void warranty.

My wife's Mustang (exactly like mine, but non-California model) pulls like a freight train all the way through the RPM range. Mine is a creampuff below 3K RPM, then a sudden (explosive burst) increase that I would say catches up to her's. She also gets better gas mileage that I suspect is either power related, or because her engine is looser due to mileage.

I feel like a good tune would level mine out, but the damned warranty issue is power-blocking me. I just want some low end torque and throttle response, but I guess I can't have my cake and eat it too...
