Is it that much different?? I have heard really all the difference is is that the tc locks up sooner and shift points? not really a difference in hp

Do some mechanical upgrades and you'll be enjoying a new level of power.

Yes, very similar tune. Race still has more power. Mabye look into FICM tuning if your not lookinhg into such an expensive upgrade. youll get better throttle response. Or just get some nitrous. Fuel system and nitrous would be a good way to go too, just a little bit more of an investment

With more SMOKE comes higher EGT's, Poor MPG anf LESS POWER! If your not burning what your spitting out, your not getting the full benefit of a custom tune.

Do you have head studs? What other supporting mods do you have?

I have the 140 tune from Cale and love it! The power is great and the smoke is managable. It only puffs at the start of putting your foot in it and then cleans up to a light haze at WOT. I agree with everybody else here as well, somke is just wasted power. To each his own though.
