    Diesels gain 100hp from then. But alot of times they advertise those gains on the gas versions too which is complete bull.

    I read on here a while ago someone bought a Hypertech tuner and ran his car on the dyno without it then put it on set for "max performance" and gained 2 hp at the wheels. Seems like a waste of 350 bucks to me.

    You are literally 20 minutes away from me. I will be out of town next week (honey moon) but will be available SOMEWHAT by email. I can do a basic tune (mail order equivalent) or anything up to full tuning on the street and dyno. Check out my sig for a link to my site.
