    Winter Tune????

    I have been thinking about this for some time now and must ask the question. Before anyone gives me a bunch of crap, I have sold my DD and now rely on my poor GTO to get me through the tough Michigan winter. That being said, I have a set of Blizzak's on her and can't put much power to the ground anyway.

    SOOOOOO, has anyone here de-tuned their car to save on Gas? I have a Diablo tuner. Anyone, anyone.....
