What is a tune

Can someone give me the 411 on a tune, yes i did try a search and didnt really get anywhere....What i think it is - a chip you plug in somewhere and it messes with your timing and what not for more performance - QUESTIONS - how do they install - do i need "tom" or someone to do something to it or do i just have to plug it in and do its work - Are any tunes better than others - What are my chances of running into problems - If i just disconnect it does my car return to stock - more questions will come, thanks for your help

Agreed. And depending on the tuner, you can update your PCM's new flash as you add mods, for example I downloaded a new tune into the car after installing my 65mm TB today....

Best damn mod, period.

Basically a tune is a set of optimized guidelines for the ECU to follow.

check out the tune review thread here:

SVT owners: Post reviews of your Tune!

talks about installation, results, good source of info. best thing you can do though is talk to guys like Wayne, Tom, FS, Amazon Racing, or McNews and get the information from them.
