Your gonna enjoy it. If nothing else mine helped the fuel mileage but it did also give a decent power boost. You won't notice much on top power with your tunes though.

No, just won't be as noticeable to you since you have tunes where I do not have tunes and made a very noticeable difference.

The main benefit is low end power and fuel mileage increase

Stage two with those 190 injectors will be sweet! I wonder if anyone has done any testing to see if the ficm tunes help out with larger injectors vs stock injectors.

it'll turn your truck into a whole new beast, it did for mine at least and that's with running spd daily.

every truck/strategy is different I guess. I noticed a big difference up top, big, and of course the impressive throttle response. Seems like some trucks respond to ficm tuning more than others

I though you would like it. It def makes a difference. It's not like ECM tunning but I'd odes open up some great power!
