Got My XCalibrator Tuner Today!!

I got it today in the mail and put in right away and started driving I already can tell the difference especially in the shifts, I'm using the 89 Performance, but I cant wait to try the 89 Torque and 92 Performance that I got too.
I just thought I would share.

I kind of like the fact of tuning it and taking it out, but when i bought it for soem reason i thought you had to mount it in there, i think that would have been sweet, like a banks tuner for deisel trucks...

I just got back from a road trip and just got between 24-25mpg, I never gotten that before. I could have probably got better if I wasnt going between 75-80 the whole time.

Was this bama tuner the only thing that was added since that 20-21 figure?

What kind of tune were you running?

Thanks.
