Will a tune up stop your car from running?

What is included in a full tune up?
Generally, a tune-up consists of checking the engine for parts that need cleaning, fixing, or replacing. Common areas under inspection include filters, spark plugs, belts and hoses, car fluids, rotors, and distributor caps. Many of these only require a visual inspection or a simple test.
How often should a car get a tune up?
Typically, if you have an older vehicle with a non-electronic ignition, you should get a tune up about every 10,000-12,000 miles, or every year. Newer cars with an electronic ignition and fuel injection can go from 25,000 to 100,000 miles before needing a major tune up.
What is done for a tune up?
The tune-up should also include cleaning or replacing the spark plugs and, on older cars, the distributor cap and rotor. Tune-ups may also include replacement of the fuel filter, oxygen sensor, PCV valve, and spark plug wires. If your vehicle contains platinum spark plugs, they may not need to be changed as frequently.
Are tune ups necessary?
Whether you have a car with an older ignition system or a new one, it’s necessary to have a tune-up done when your vehicle’s owner manual requires it. If you don’t, you run the risk of having your vehicle run poorly. A properly tuned vehicle will run smoothly and perhaps even see better fuel economy.

Can you run 10psi on an Acura TL?
Since our TL’s are 11:1 compression (high), you can not run 10psi. max PSI is 8, anything higher, you will sling a rod through your block, and/or detonation. Also still have the problem with the tranny holding up. Chances are, anyone that attempts to run this will destroy the engine.
Can You reverse engineered an Acura TL Turbo?
The whole tuning issue has been beat to death on these cars and I still have yet to hear of a company who has sucessfully reverse engineered the PCM and come out with a good tuning solution. You cant just bolt a big turbo, supercharger or nitrous set up on a car without considering a way to fuel/tune it. I WANT YOU!
How many exhaust pipes does an Acura TL have?
Your RL is dumping a crazy amount of fuel into it. The TL has a very restrictive exhaust. 3 cats, 3 mufflers, and 1 resonator, plus the 2.25″ piping. Instead of messing with the air/fuel on a STOCK car, start doing SOME MODS then play with the air/fuel.
Can you change the fuel ratio in an Acura TL?
Most likely its the GReddy emanage or AEM FIC. In the TL you can only change the air/fuel, neither of these are effective, only had success with the greddy, it only allowed the changing of the air/fuel ratio ONLY. Everything else probably will be reverted back to stock hence the need for a piggyback.
