    Tune With BNR, Jerry makes custom tunes using EFILive and will tailor it to your needs, I've worked with him 2 weeks with mine now and I've got +40WHP (according to the torque pro PID). However you do have to pay a bit more than trifecta at $550 USD.
    They use EFILive for alot of diesel tunes, so I would imagine it has the ability to bypass emissions.

    Is the P0420 code showing because of the muffler delete? Nice work, BTW...

    Absolutely not. The P0420 code has always been on, since bone stock.

    Was it under warranty and did you take it to the dealer to get it fixed?

    Just curious but would you know if emptying a cat out would give similar results? Curious if I could run that without popping codes.

    If you empty out a cat your gonna get a code on a stock tune. Deleting just the muffler you shouldn't get a code.

    As stated earlier in this thread, I have only had this car for a year. So, no, i didnt have a warranty nor did the dealer fix it. I did take it in to make sure all recalls were performed, and they checked the VIN, and they have all been done.
