He said he has 200 bucks lol.

Mark @ MPRacing is doing a good sale right now, for that 200 bucks you could get a cold air intake and a pcm tune.

Thats what I'm running with, PCM tuned for premium, and I have to say one hell of an improvement. Even with my slipping trans I love it.

NOTE: Slipping trans not caused by mods, slipping before they were installed.

Check the stickies and search. The how do I make my GA faster is a good place to start.

FEATURES:

*Speed limiter removed
*Raised rev limiter
*Raised shift points
*Fan on at key-off (this feature activates when engine coolant is 185 degrees or greater)
*WOT fueling richen to reduce KR
*Correct VIN number programmed into the PCM
*Torque converter lockup tables modified to improve transmission life and help eliminate ‘converter lockup hunting’
*Electronic Shift Kit v1.2 (or newer) service. (increased line pressure and decreased commanded shift time)




Our PCMs have shown the abilty to drop anywhere from 1-5 tenths of a second off quarter mile times when used in stock vehicles.

on the site it says send the part in first? what does that mean? i need to send it in before i can get mine in??

also my friend says that if i get this tune i have to run on premium fuel, is this true...

so with CAI, and a PCM tune... how much hp would i be adding... and does anyone have this and can actually feel the change??

You send them your pcm and they send you a tuned one. Since i'm assuming this is your daily driver you can order the pcm then once you receive it in the mail you can send your old one.

You can have it tuned for whatever octane fuel you want just contact them. And yes you will notice a gain but theirs no way to tell how much hp you will gain.
