What part of CO are you in?

Do you have gauges or a monitor yet? If not then I would get that first and then look into an SCT with custom tunes. It will increase performance for sure and believe it or not will help with economy, as long as you can go easy on the fun pedal. I have a tune written from Chris @ TSD that he wrote for me to help out with the elevation we live in and it is working well for me and another buddy with an 05 that is also in our chapter.

Darryl already posted a link to our chapter section, check us out if you are interested.

Divide is some gorgeous country for sure!! I would start looking for gauges or a monitor like and Edge CS or CTS before anything else.

I will share more ideas with you over in the CSP section you just introduced yourself in.

Again, welcome to the ORG.
