I have a question on my 02 svtf.
My idle sticks at 2k when coming to a stop at a light. Then after a few seconds it drops to 1k then to 900. And ideas?

Check for a Vac leak , then clean your IACV , if you have installed a new TB the idle may need to be adjusted but you CANNOT just set the idle screw

You would need a tune for that and aia can help you with the tire size change as well as more performance , if your a ATX also help with the trans psi and shift points

"aia" is a typo, he was saying "and i can help you".

The Flasher is also a scan tool & logging device, but a scan tool can't load a tune (more limited tool).

You need the tuning from a tuner like Tom to go with the tool, more expensive to buy the capability to do some tuning yourself plus spend the time to learn how & experiment.

Tom would you be willing to help me with the tunning I have no idea where to even start looking for runners that can do tires I don't really need for hp would be a nice bonus but not really a big deal I just don't want to mess up my trans within a couple of weeks of driving the car my plan is to strip the inside and put some soacers/conversion from 4x108 to some 5x114.3 and cut the finders to be able to fit some mud tires on im not sure what size tires yet

I have two MK3s, a 2012 Gray Hatchback SEL and a 2014 Gray Hatchback Titanium. The 2012, I put the Roush CAI on it and had an FSWerks cat back stealth exhaust installed for the sweet sound. The 2014, I have not yet touched, but I am looking at the K&N 57 or 69 CAI, but maybe the Ford Racing axle back muffler. MPG is of interest here. Any thoughts?

Hi there. Tom are you still doing tunes? I am interested in getting a custom tune for my '14 Titanium. Wanting better throttle response. Will the tune also help with the shuttering on slow starts? Thanks.
