Do I think ANY tune on an NA motor has enough of an increase in HP to be a problem? Not even a little. But as PG said, if the rev limiter was raised then you're screwed. But push comes to shove, you modded the engine and you have to live with the consequences. I mod all of my cars and I accept that some of what I do may void the warranty on some things.

Ya gotta pay to play.
Fully agree. Our transmission is capable of handling 600nm of torque while our engine is only generating 400nm of torque. Tuned or not, nothing is going to ever hit close to 500nm with just a chip tune with normal mods apart from stroker and S/C. Thats why i find it weird they took this chance to void that as well.

I am paying for this for sure but am absolutely sure the rev limiter was never touched. Pretty freaking sure abt that.
