I never tried the econ tune... I run around on the street tune all day long. It handles and responds like pretty much like the stock program unless you get on the throttle, then it comes to life with almost as much power as the looney... And I mean almost, it seems to be an almost unperceptible difference to me. Also with the street tune I see about a 2 mpg increase if I drive it reasonably, and with the street tune I see 150-200* lower EGT's on a good hard acceleration compared with the looney.

Have you noticed a change in your EGTs? Do they stay lower since it is econo?

I don't know about my egt's, I don't have any gauges yet. But I am happy to report that my around town milage went from 12.5 - 13 mpg's to 14.75 mpg's today when I filled up. And I check it with a calculator, I don't have the lie - o - meter over head display.
