That's also how stock tune and every other competent tune works unless you turn the engines nannies off.Given the advice from my forum friends, I contacted Trifecta to let them know I track my car and they responded with assurance that the car will be safe.
Here is what I sent them:
Hi, I have a question about the tune I just ordered.
I regularly track my car at desert road courses where the temperatures sometimes reach over 100 deg F. I want reliable performance through 30 minute track sessions of hard driving and will sacrifice some performance to ensure reliability. I don’t want to be throwing codes and going into limp mode like my friend’s tuned BMW 335.
So, would it be possible for my tune to be configured as follows:
Tour Mode – near stock performance.
Sport Mode – max performance street driving on CA 91 octane premium gas.
Track Mode – high performance with bulletproof reliability on 91 octane CA gas with RoyalPurple MaxBoost added to each tank of gas, suitable for desert road courses in summer heat.
Here is a link to my YouTube channel. You can see the RPMs and throttle I use while at the track. I use Track/Race mode when tracking my ATS-V.
Thanks. I’m really looking forward to my new tune.
Have a great Christmas!
Here is Trifecta's response:
Thanks for the follow up. The calibration is issued with stock Tour mode. As for Sport and Track, we can't customize each driving mode for different fuel types or additives. Those are global tables and will apply to all modes.
That being said, you don't have to worry about the vehicle going into limp mode etc. Our calibration has many custom programming features. One of them is that it'll automatically adjust performance, no matter the mode you are in, to keep the engine safe. These aren't hard coded values like on other tunes, that the engine will try to achieve no matter what, leading to issues. It'll adjust itself on it's own. So if after a few pulls temps are too high, fueling isn't where it needs to be, etc, it will simply pull power to keep the engine safe and the vehicle consistent.
We do offer specific high output calibrations for boostane etc. That would be done via a separate calibration. You would flash and use that for the specific settings, like using boostane in the tank for your track session.

All they're telling you is that you're car won't blow up on the road course.
