8. Why isn’t this done by the manufacturer?

There are several reasons for this. Firstly, because of the many different fuel grades available around the world and the level of service that is given to a vehicle’s engine during its life. Engine manufacturers needs to warrant engines in countries that have 50+ deg cel ambient air temps in summer, and where the engine doesn’t receive the necessary amount of oil change it should and owners literally drive in an abusive manner. We here in Australia are servicing engines as per the manufacture’s requirements and are usually more mechanically sympathetic towards our motor vehicles. Thus, we can afford not to have our engines factory de-tuned from.
Secondly the manufacture develops engines with that mutch gap for tunes so they don’t have to create every time a whole new engine in the newer models.So we are basically one step in front of them.
