Xcal2. will it compensate for power loss from 32" tires?

Hey guy, i put a set of BFG AT's on my truck a week or 2 ago. I love the bite offroad and they should be deadly once the snow flies up north here.

The only problem is i have lost alot of off the line torque.

I have 4.10's and a 5 speed. i went from 255/70/16's (30.0") to 265/75/16's (31.7")

Im curious will the Xcal get my performance back?

looking at a 89 or 91 performance tune.

I did an identical tire height upgrade , w/4.10 and automatic, 4.0sohc.
Got an xcal3 from Henson performance , and it jumps off the line , and pulls hard to 5700. ! I use the 87 performance tune daily. (also have 87 mileage+ 93 performance tunes)

You will also be able to reprogram for the larger tire size.

Just increase the timing in the 0-2000rpm area and it'll "jump" like it used to.

4.10s aren't a bad ratio for 31.7" tires.

IMO BAMA. But I've had great difficulty in getting him to return e-mails or even speak to me on the phone. (returning phone calls too)

I use lasota racing. Don is not that experienced with rangers. However he is a guru at SCT tuning and he specializes in fords. Don is a *teacher* that the "tuners" go to for thier classes. He's even made DVD based classes (I have them)

IMO I'll never go to anyone else.

I have had both Rogue and Bama, I think Bama has a little bit of an edge over Rogue but both are great.

I like supporting Wayne because he is a great member and has a good business. He sells Rogue Performance stuff.

I have a Bama Tune for my Charger which he has been known to have the best plug and play tune for the EE kit.
