to me it is a waste of money. IMO you should buy a tuner! stuff.swf has them as well as many others. They will write you a custom program for the 33s and you will get added HP!

I know tuners are very simple to use. Buy the tuner. You will DEF not regret it. I know I didn't. I got power and when I upgraded to my 33's I was able to calculate my speedo.

normally you can get 3 tunes with the purchase of a tuner...

id go with something like this...

87 octane torque tune with 33s
93 octane torque tune with 33s
93 octane perforamnce tune with 33s.

something like that. or you can buy my supercharger and it will come with an XCAL2.

I have the same tunes but for 87, and 91 octane. I love them. Makes such a big difference.

dont get the SL true speed. i bought one for my 99 and it didnt work. All the wire colors in there instructions were all wrong, and their customer service department never picks up the phone. Get a tuner, its worth the money and you dont have to go tapping into wires.

I prefer Rogue....Fred actually replies to emails sent to him.



Just as Beard said, the Superlift Truspeed is a waste of money and for about a hundred bucks more, you get a tuner with tons of parameters you can change yourself, including tire size. Does everything the TrueSpeed does and then some. Plus more power and better mileage.

My tunes from Rogue Performance are 87 econ, 92 perf, 92 torque.
