    Thanks. Can you send me a link to gearhead and maybe a list of mods and where to buy them. This is all new to me. Thanks

    I would use the search function and do some diligent research before just randomly picking a tune. There are numerous posts on this website all talking about different tunes.

    Also Matt from Gearhead is active on this site. He is doing some fantastic work on these platforms and trail blazing performance parts. His tunes are top notch as well.

    Also, since you have a 2013, I would highly recommend changing all of the fluids. Oil, coolant, PTU (Power Transfer Unit), and RDU (Read Differential Unit). I would also start cycling Mercon LV trans fluid for the next 5 oil changes as well.

    I have everything documented and how to do both the PTU and trans fluid cycling documented in my build/ownership post. Post 1 gives a overview of my car (mods, tune, ect) and everything I have done to it, and plan to do it. And post 3 talks about the PTU and trans cycling.

    Just like SM105K said, do the fluids. You might be shocked about what comes out of your ptu. PITA but incredibly worth it.
