I doubt the cars will even be released without the tune, they're simply playing the CYA role until it's finalized what vendor they are going to go through.
Which is more idiotic? believing the hp numbers from the official press release or claiming a borla exhaust will add 48 hp?

If there are engine modifications that are being added latter for the 15k price range, great (if you believe this, I have some ocean front property for sale in arizona). when they are announced I may change my opinion. Thats not a great marketing strategy, but they might change my mind about this waste of money.

but until that happens, all I have to base my opinion on is pictures and press releases. Not wishes and fantasies.
