I would say it was about the same amount of power difference from a street tune to a performance tune. I noticed mid and top end was a good bit stronger.

I thought it felt like a completely different tune. Stronger all the way through. It pulls alot harder I think, then again its supposed to. I did go straight to the track file once studded and with some tweaking on the shifting end of it, its a great daily driver.

The Looney Wild Track file is a completely different tune. It is night and day difference in power over the standard looney tune. I run the track file daily also. It has about as much power difference over the looney wild as the looney wild does over the looney. Lol hope that wasn't too confusing.

As Vivian mentioned on the phone with me yesterday the regular Looney(non-studded) is approx 140 hp over stock as compared to the Looney Wild (studded) tune that is approx 190hp over stock. I would think you could feel ~50hp.

If the stud job was done correctly with flat heads and OEM gaskets then there is nothing to worry about running the Looney Wild. Just keep an eye on fuel pressure for injectors sake.
