    Dyno Tune question

    I have a question in regards to Dyno Tunes at the various performance shops. Do all performance shops get you to sign a liability waiver that pretty much excludes them from all liability? This pretty much covers them even for negligence on their part. What if they were using straps on the dyno that were frayed or completely did the tune wrong that blew up your engine, etc?

    I am part owner in a customer service oriented company that supports business with their Information Technology infrastructure which includes missing critical data and availability. What if one of my guys accidently did something that caused loss of data. This very well could happen and that is why we carry 2 Million Dollars of liability Insurance. Why wouldn't these performance shops have the same thing? Why not cover themselves but instead give a blanket liability waiver that doesn't cover them at all. How can this be good for the customer?

    I'm pretty sure if a strap broke and your car got messed up they would fix it, if it's a reputable shop.
    If you keep telling them "MOAR POWER" when you're not happy with the results, that they're going to tell you to pound sand.
    You need to TELL them to be conservative on the tune if you're not willing to bear some risk.

    As always YMMV, and always seek out forum sponsors/reputable shops.
