    My car runs really good with a Lito tune and the Howard rattler cams. Other than the loping idle and the added power if you drove my car you’d never know it was cammed because it drives just like it did before the cams from Ford. Every now and then and I mean every now and then the idle will hang around 1300rpm when I’m rolling to a stop with the clutch in but soon as the car stops the idle drops down where it should be. But I’m not sure that has to do with the tune it’s probably something to do with all the other mods I have done to the car or the countless pounds of nitrous it’s ingested over the last year lol.

    Glad to hear you're getting it dialed in. Just wait until you've done some datalogging and Manuel has worked more of his magic!
    You should expect some bucking at low speeds; it's part of the price you pay for the cams, as they have a pretty narrow lobe center angle ( more valve overlap), and VCT only helps offset that to a small degree. I have a similar setup on my car, and yes, the headers have helped me to create new ways to cuss.

    Mine does that too. I read something about it some time back, think it has to do with emissions (what doesn't?!).

    rolling idle is higher. That's by design.

    I was raised in Semmes, just to the west of Mobile. Still have a lot of relatives down there.

    WTF does any of this even mean? Astronaunt? French born in LA? WHERE in Louisiana? And what the fuck does that have anything to do with anyone understanding you? Be real specific.

    How did we go from being disappointed with BAMA tunes to Louisiana, French Astronauts eating dicks?

    Definitely a strange vector to be on.

    Apparently, we have some French Acadian Louisiana members who like to eat astronaut dick? Or astronauts who like to eat French Louisiana dick? Or just some dick members who wish they were a French astronaut in Louisiana?

    You will find Lito is the best out there when it comes to tuning a 4.6 3v...
    any lil issue that he notices in the datalogs he will correct, and make the car even better. It is a process that may take you doing a few datalogs, but the end results will be worth the time spent.

    Maybe I missed it, but did you get Lito to update your base tune after header/CAI/etc. Install?

    Yeah, Lito's base tune sight unseen was way better than the Bama canned tune that came with the parts.
