Street you'll get better gas mileage. Performance you get just as good mileage with better performance. All depends on what you want.

You won't be able to tell much of a difference. Race tune is where you'll feel the most

Go with the Race tune, trust me, you'll love it, and never want to go back.

I am running a Street tune and the throttle response is incredible. You will notice that your fan will run more often, since Bama tunes it to come on at a lower temperature. This can be changed, but I have not seen an issue with it and have read plenty of threads as to why you would want it to come on at a lower temperature. It is more of what you want out of your car.

Enjoy the tuner, because it makes a huge difference.

I'm on 93 race all city driving. I go like 2 miles to school and back so 4 round trip. And occasionally food run. And I had like 12 mpg because I like to be obnoxious. Lol
