    PCM for less?

    Just want to know what yas think about them? Does any of you have one in your car and really think it's worth it? What change when you installed? Thanks.

    I've bought 2 tunes from them, great company, customer service is awesome too. I didn't notice a massive change in power through the seat dyno, more what I needed back then was adjustment for the 4.10 gears, had them remove some codes, etc. If you have an auto they can make some changes that will make a noticeable difference. Overall, back before I had hpt they were awesome to work with.

    Im considering getting a tune from them too , I havent read anything bad about them , soo I'm hoping they'll do a good job tuning my computer for 3.73's and bolt ons .. and yes auto's seem to benefit from better shifts , I guess we'll see ..

    Plus I now have the s-converter @ 3000 stall. I read something about duty cyl? I don't know anything about tuning. So sounds good to me. I'm just going to keep my stock PCM and order a new tuned one from them.

    Get the s-coverter! It's awesome so far.... My car is scary right now with that coverter wheels break loose with 1/4 throttle especially on turns!
