How much more warranty do you have? Also I am currently asking and debating on the same thing of what tuner too use and am actually ordering tonight... I think... I am debating on selling my 06 GT or keeping it is my hold up other wise I would have ordered earlier.

Bama through AM is who I am ordering from if I do it. Bama, Brenspeed, and Steeda are your big three Mustang tuners.

Even some Ford tunes are questionable and really depends on dealer...

Also, some dealers are mod friendly, and won't make a big deal over things like CAI and tune.

That is actually questionable as they can tell if a car computer has been tuned as it will show it has been flashed. Many threads on this myth. If you tune your car warranty is 99.9% out.
