i like the free reburns saves lots of $$$$. they can be on the smokey side. tony can be hard to get a hold of, and it is understandable, but cary (ct performance) and raul (stealth automotive) sell TW chips.

i think any of the custom chips would be good PHP, Gearhead, Beans, Swamps, Etc

The Extreme tune pedal is too sensitive for me. Otherwise they have been pretty damn good. Great auto shifting. But i have only other ran DP Tuner.

And for some reason, both of the tow tunes (on my 97 auto and now 2001 6 peed) suck. The 97 tow tune had a miss in higher gears, and the 01 tow tune is a smokey bastard. Tony is quite hard to get ahold of, and Cary only has preloaded tunes and it not able to tweak them. I have an email in to Tony, we'll see if he ever responds.

If you were closer I would give you a cookie.

I sent another one. This tow tune is embarrassingly smoky.

If you would like to go for a ride sometime let me know...

I'm not running stock injectors of course, but currently have No Limit, Gearhead and PHP tunes on the chip... Waiting on Tony to get some of his stuff...
