tuner?

Ive got a 2004 3.0 with underdog performance pullies and headers with a drop in filter. I am also a 5spd does anyone know if the tuner will make a difference?

To tell you the truth, I didn't really notice THAT much out of the tuner but I had the bamachips xcal2. I felt more of a difference after the UD pulley set. From what i've read, it is more noticable on an automatic equipped ranger. But the plus side is that you get that pesky 90mph limiter removed, and you can actually get tuned to run premium if you desire.

I agree with Bwester, but in my auto it really sharpen up the shifts... but in the engine performance didnt really notice much, the torque tune tuned the engine for more low end to me that felt really strong compared to the performance tune

I would get it after the gears...you aren't going to notice too much, I did get 2mpg more and a lot more torque (seat of the pants)
