I had a sample tune from a Bully Dog recently... sucked! It was supposed to give me 80 hp for 3 days. Well I got the 80 hp, but I had to push and hold the cruise "ON" button to see it! Then after the 3 days the 80hp tune would go away but I'd still have the 2 "power settings", just in order for me to see stock power I still had to hold the cruise "ON" button! Lol, ended pay $80 at Ford to reflash my PCM
