There was a thread that was posted last year about everyones tunes and what it helped, But no one really said anything about how much it helped


Ex: Horse power went from ____ to ____
Gas mileage went from ____ to ____
1/4 or 1/8 mile runs before tune and after

things like this is what would like to find out, mean better shift points and more horses are always a plus, but to a certain cost.

How much did it help your truck? :somb:

On my current truck my gas mileage went from 24.5 to 26.5 mpg with a 93 octane tune.

I'll have some 1/4 mile figures soon.

by running the higher octane with the tune are you getting any hp and (or) torque increases?

yes, its a very noticble increase. Its most notable on the highway where there is more torque down low to get you moving rather than downshifting.
