General upgrade question: Can I drive a heavily modded motor w/o a tune?
I am looking at a 1st gen ford
Lightning, and it has a new motor,
cams, lifters, supercharger, bigger tb,
etc. Guy says he hasn't driven it bc
there is no tune on it. Would driving it
without a tune hurt the motor?
if he means he HAS NOT OPENED IT UP>>>PUSHED IT>>>RAN IT HARD>>> if timing/curve,fule,curve are close and it starts and does respond.. baby it ...YES.. BUT IT NEEDS TO BE CHECKED ALL OF IT>>is why hes selling it...messed up?
He needs a family truck. I'm just trying to figure out how to get it 4.5 hours home.
tj..have a uhaul dealer around there>???
Driving it without a tune could damage the engine if the mods were significant.
come onnnn bob.....
It is going to need a dyno tune done by a competent tuner.
Bob, where can I find a place to get it done?
TJ, where is this vehicle located?
