Sounds strange but I feel like I've heard of this problem before I'd contact your vendor direct.

I think my truck does the same thing but not sure if it is within the tune. Never even thought that it could be from that though. When at idle my a/c blows nice and cool but when I take off a/c instantly gets warmer.

Cant be the tuning. Could be an AC unit that needs recharging or blown headgaskets though.

Yea I think mine is more in the a/c unit but could never find any leaks with the sniffer. Had it recharged and if I I can remember it worked for 2 days then started doing the warm to cold thing again. Must have a leak somewhere.

are you taking off normal?there is a point where the a/c is cut on wot.first place to look is the charge of the system.could be tuning,could be a pressure switch,could be airflow across the condenser,but most likely the charge.what is the ambient temp?was it recently worked on(cab off)?for leaks ive always had better luck with dye than the sniffer.

Tunes dont effect the AC performance they cant.

If the A/C does actually cut off on WOT (IDK if it does or doesnt) then I would submit to you that it is probably something electrical that controls that and is probably something in the ECM when it sees the TPS or PPS at WOT it tells the A/C to cut off. If this were the case, then I would think it coud definitely be something in the tune that is causing the ECM to see WOT and cut the A/C while he is driving. Just my $.02 and IDK if this is even possible but if it works correctly with other tunes then it must be in the tune and he needs to contact Innovative.
