3 Things that are keeping me away from a tune.
1. Loss of power train warranty.
2. 93 Octane fuel requirement.
3. Lack of actual measured acceleration time to speed or 1/4 mile times vs. stock, despite all the hype.
Once I have the tune installed, I'll measure 0-60 multiple times before and after. No 1/4 mile though :(

1) I still have my powertrain warranty after being tuned for 5 years and having warranty work done to my car.
2) The additional cost of premium fuel is well worth it for the added performance of the tune.
3) Since I don't race my car I'm ok with not knowing how fast it is, but I do know it's a lot more fun to drive.
l should have said
1. Potential and likely loss of power train warranty if any possible issue arises that there is a somewhat defendable position that issue could be result of the tune. I watch too may lawyer shows on TV.

What are you going to use to measure the runs?

Yes, please do. The only thing we have to go off of is someone who doesn't have the same drivetrain as us, or even the same platform.
A better test of power gain would be 40-90 or 40-110 if you are in a rural area with a good highway.
