  1. Tuner

    Of course I would recommend us, we would tune your vehicle via our AutoCal (EFILive). You keep the hardware, it will allow us to see your vehicle data, and provide the custom tune files via email. You can also use it to go back to factory settings when you need to, and receive tune updates via email, we update the tune as for free as long as you own the vehicle. Not sure if you mentioned, do you have a 6 speed, or 8 speed?
  2. Hello, Justin is the tuner here at Black Bear Performance. We would be happy to help with a tune. For your year, model, and engine size we would tune your vehicle via our AutoCal. It is a handheld device that is yours to keep. It will allow to see your vehicle data and provide your custom tune files via email. Give us a call 877-809-4070 or email [email protected] Thanks
  3. Anyone flash their ECU?

    We are able to tune some 2019 vehicles, if you would like you can email us your VIN number, [email protected] and we can check and see if it is supported.
  4. Who Runs BlackBear? How do you like it?

    With AFM enabled for that year, engine we see on average a 1mpg improvement depending on fuel quality, octane, and driving style. People still disable the AFM all the time, it really just comes down to personal preference on the 14 and newer vehicles.
  5. Who Runs BlackBear? How do you like it?

    AFM is typically a fuel saver on the 2014+ models, so we would only suggest disabling it if you have heavy wheels/tires or can't tolerate the sound with your exhaust. Also 2014+ engine and transmission Torque Management we do not remove it we remodel it to improve response and performance. The stabilitrak/traction control system is primarily controlled by the ABS computer, there is nothing that can be altered within the ECM/TCM that can affect its operation. The only way that you can override it would be to remove the ABS fuse. Also for your engine you would want to run 89 octane (even with stock tuning), or higher. If you wanted you can have separate octane tunes 89/87 and 91+ and you would be able to run E85 on both as long as your vehicle is flex fuel capable. We tend to see a little more power running E85 with the 91+ octane tune.
  6. We still do not see EFILive being able to unlock the 8 speed TCM for the 2017 and newer vehicles in the foreseeable future.

    In general with our tunes we strive to get all the available power out of your engine. We can also improve throttle response and shift patterns. Your fuel quality, octane, and the condition of the vehicle prior to the tune will be a factor as well. Once you data log and download a copy of your stock tune files, you will email that to us. As wforrest08 said you will want to let us know modifications, any tune changes you need, for example disabling AFM, and let us know if you have any concerns with the vehicle, and we will use that to build your custom tune and email it back to you. Let us know if you have any questions.

    We would tune your vehicle via our AutoCal, it will allow us to see your vehicle data and provide custom tune files via email. If you are doing a DOD delete kit we will have you read out your stock tune files on your vehicle first, you can do that without starting the vehicle, and email that in, we will use that to build a base tune to get you up and running. Then we will have you data log, and email that in and we can fine tune it. Here is the link to our AutoCal on our website. http://store.blackbearperformance.com/EFILive-AutoCal-Tuning-System_p_8.html Let me know if you have any other questions.
  9. We would be happy to help with tuning. We would tune your vehicle via our AutoCal only, it will allow us to see your vehicle data, and provide your custom tune files via email. With the 2017 and newer 8 speed vehicles it is engine only tuning, not the transmission. You can call 877-809-4070 if you have any other questions, or here is a link to the AutoCal on our website http://store.blackbearperformance.com/EFILive-AutoCal-Tuning-System_p_8.html

  13. Disable Fuel Management System?

    The 07-13 models with AFM had the major issues, oil consumption, lifter failures. AFM is typically a fuel saver on the 2014+ models, so we would only suggest disabling it if you have heavy wheels/tires or can't tolerate the sound with your exhaust. It really is a personal preference on the newer vehicles, how it feels to you, what you are experiencing, if you want to disable it or not.
