Yes it says above it can.

Removing cold start is the reason why I am going with the Gintani tune over the VF Engineering tune that also came out.

what about switching between tunes??? What kind of procedure is that? Say I want to run a pump gas tune 90% of the time and then switch to an e85 tune when I am running around with others or go to the track? Is that possible? Will it max out my "counter"?

If you own multiple maps you can freely switch them anytime you want; you would just need to have the cable on you and a laptop or tablet with the files. No "counter".

What do you mean "no counter?" Are you saying the flash tune does not increase the flash counter?

Damn. Depending on real world reviews. I might ditch the JB4 for this. Killing the cold start is HUGE for me as it wakes my new born up.

450 wheel seems low with tune and DP's though, no?

Edit: read it was on a mustang dyno (nvm)
