Opinions on atlas 40 ficm tune by ficm repair.com

I am about to send my ficm out to ficm repair.com to be repaired.

I am looking for reviews/opinions on the atlas 40 ficm tune. I think about having it installed while its there. I do tow on occasion 3k-12k. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Mike

With the mods you have I wouldn't hesitate to put the atlas 40 on and tow whatever.

Don't get anything over the Atlas 40 though. I have the Atlas 80 and it adds a sh1t ton of heat to the cylinders. Need to get it out and the 40 in.

Just drove to Atlanta from Daytona and picked up about 3 mpg with the atlas 40 & a whole lot better throttle response. Was well worth the $$.

I guess I didn't answer you question so here goes. I have the Atlas 80 and it really reduces spool up time alot. I can't say that it helped my MPG as I did a few a couple of mods at the same time. It improves thottle response significantly. I do get 17.5 mpg @ 75 mph in my truck with all of my mods.
