Went from 13.70's at 101 mph to 13.40's at 104 mph just playing around with the tune a little. I'd say I already got my moneys worth from HP tuner.
    Keep in mind that my factory tune was not that great,,,,datalogging on the car was the first thing I learned and the Fuel trims were all over the place,,,and mostly in the +10 range,,,then after driving a while the right bank fuel trims would turn red and just lock out. This thing had a terrible stock tune,,,running very lean just cruising around. After dialing in the VE tables both banks of the fuel trims looked pretty even and didn't turn red anymore. Car actually drove perfectly though with stock tune,,,you couldn't tell things were out of wack.
    Now the modding has begun and I should see much more benifit.

    That's good news but is not the norm for a 6-speed car that is stock. I have tuned several on the dyno (against my own advice to the customer) that only picked up 5-10rwhp, and it was work to get the numbers out and not have the timing too high for the real world. I have seen one or two that picked up 15 or so, but it's just not the norm for a bone stock car.

    That 94 is unsupported. Look at Tunercat for the 94.
