How many calibrations will it provide? And can you personally modify a calibration?

They usually come with 3. and they give you simple options to modify i believe. like tire size, gear ratio, just the stranded crap.
If you really want a tune, I think theres a guy at Bamatunes who does good work.

the flashpaq is a decent tuner, Not much of a difference in the fuel economy mode & performance tune in mileage so you might as well get the extra power.

You get 3 options of mileage, tow or performance, then it lets you choose your shift points & such.

the tire size, gear ratio, reprogram rev limiter, speed limiter & maybe some other stuff I can't remember.

I like mine & you can find them used for 150 pretty much all day

what do I run on what, the tuner?

If so performance all the time unless I was going to tow something then I would change it to tow. If I was worried about mileage I would own a car

I like, thanks for the reply. Is it possible for you, the end user, to tweak anything, such as timing curve?
