    Yeah I hear you, don't fix it until it's broken kind of deal.

    Do you know if the tune messes with any of the abs, traction control, or stability control settings, I love the stock setup that tries not to interfere with you until you're about to die and pulls you back from the brink or until you're about to grab traction again anyways

    Well, I assume it interferes right before you're about to die, I haven't gone that far yet, just have gotten close

    The Whipple Tune was calibrated by Ford's Tier 1 engineers.
    The Whipple Tune has all the safeties enabled even the speed limiter but it's set to 110mph.
    Both the stock exhaust Tune and then later on the LT Header Tune.

    Actually it's a different project, Shelby American is doing their own thing like Roush.
    Their just going with the Whipple.

    I have inform Whipple about the HP numbers, if it's rwhp then that's good! It's up there like with Livernois.
    But if it's fwhp then something is not right.

    Yeah I heard John was out sick and everything got backup.
    They had mine in about two weeks, it's a dealer they fix them in order.

    Did you get a loaner car or you didn't need one?

    Can you get rid of the speed limiter with the Ford racing tune without messing anything up? I just wanted to make sure Ford racing didn't change the tuning for the traction/stability/abs to help with keeping the increased power in line, does offroad mode still work, did they do a seperate tune for that as well?

    I think shelby dialed the tune back deliberately to get more people to get on board with the project, people that wanted a supercharger but not a whole lot more power, ie: the general public

    Did you ask for one before dropping off your truck?
    I'm sure they would have set it up for you.

    How are you like the new Tahoe?
    I told my wife to trade her 2006 Tahoe in but she's being cheap. LOL

    The Whipple Tune can not be altered, it's highly encrypted. And yes off-road works as well.

    I don't know much about the Shelby Raptor yet, so I do not want to comment too much on it as of right now.
