Kem tunes for my mini max???

Would like to get better fuel mileage and if I gained more power wouldn't be bad either! Just wondering what kind of tunes were working for people??

not many people liking them, I ran them and the shifting is sub par and so is the power compared to the hd300 tune. save your money.

He may have been referring to his dash reading, which many people do. But they are not accurate. You must hand calculate. And this is why some people get discouraged and go with the dash reading.

I love my kem tunes,I have the 7 tune chip, i have had it for 2 years.In my opinion the 310 race has more power than the hd 300,i admit the shifts are a little harder but it is a race tune and at the track the 310 race was faster than the hd 300.The 345 tune is way better on mileage than the hd 300,I have gotten 21mpg hand calculated on the hwy running 75 on cruise,around town it gets consistently 16.5 to 17 mpg.My opinion mike tunes are top notch and he has great costumer service.But i must admit the tune i have with mcc tunning right know is getting the best mpg out of all.
