Tuners & Gears

Alright I've done quite a bit of research,
but i'd like to know your opinion of which tuner you like or would be best for me.
I have a v6, auto, Cai, and might get 4.10s with the tune.

I also make road trips about 2000 miles on the highway though, what do you guys think about me getting 4.10s will my revs be too high?

Re: Tuners & Gears

well I run 4.10s and still get about 17mpg. as far as tuners I'd go with SCT. their are far more people that use them than any other.

also when you go your gears you need to install a t-loc while your in there

Re: Tuners & Gears

Here's pricing for a t-lok it a little high you'll do better on price shopping around T-Loc FMSM4204C75 94-03 3.8L V6 Posi-Traction (Traction Lok) 7.5" Differential, 28-tooth spline $238.95

makes both rear tires spin instead of having only the rear passenger tire spin and it gives you more control and better more predicatble handeling If your planning on going S/C or turbo I"d save the t-lok money and get a 8.8 rear
For the tune SCT

Re: Tuners & Gears

yea the Tloc and gears takes pretty much 90% to 95% of the same work of just doing gears so get one put in as well and dont let them charge you much more for the Tlok if anything more.

4.10s will rise your rpms by a good bit 26% overall vs 3.27s so for all the highway you do I wouldnt do it~ a 3.73 might work a bit better.

the tuner its all about what the shop uses that you want tunes from~

a T-lok is a Positive Traction differential. It allows both wheels to distribute equal force rather than a one wheel peel. It will help your acceleration as you will be able to make higher powered launches from a dig or slow roll. The gears will help you dramatically. I would look anywhere from $1000 to $1500 including install and all parts if you let a shop do the work.

Re: Tuners & Gears

Is that not what the trac-off toggle button does, or is the tloc just designed for that? couldn't the tune be tweaked so that button stays toggled all the time? bc i don't really have the money for the tloc and gears, is the tune worth it without the gears?

Re: Tuners & Gears

The Trac-off button just turns off traction control. Traction control uses the brakes and retards the ignition when traction is loss. Basicly it slows you down when you spin a wheel. A T-loc or LSD actualy makes both rear wheels spin at the same speed.
