I'm sorry to hear that, Evan! This sounds like a crappy experience. You shouldn't be having pinging issues. Have you contacted the Bama team and let them know that you're still having issues?

I'm confident they can get this right for you!

Yes sir, it has been pretty crappy. When I first got the tuner it wasn't even working right, I had to have the people at inTune to get it right.
I have emailed them, but they never got back to me, it has happened to me a couple times.

I just about give up until it gets cooler out, because I read that it might actually be the summer gas causing the issues.

During the summer I have to pull 2-3 degrees at the 2-4K RPM because its so hot here but that's it. With a Dyno run it would be no different if I had a tune written any other time of the year vs the summer I would need to pull some timing anyways.
To be honest im not sure about right when it was tuned till now. I have owned the car about 4 months now and it has always done it since i have had it.

Sorry for late reply but i returned it to stock and now there is ZERO detonation. So it is the tunes for sure.
