stock gt's that have been tuned ONLY!

I'm thinking about having my stock gt with cai tuned, how did your stock gt respond to a tune?

I run 93 race rune 24/7 and there is a little difference but nothing what I expected. I thing the clams are a little over rated but thats their selling points. Personally I think you will feel more from tuning after you have already done some mods but thats just me. I also haven't ever run on a dyno to see how much a tune will help over stock set up either .... but 10-15 hp isnt gonna be very noticeable

I run 93 race 24/7 as well, and trust me I know when I put it back on 87street that it has less mojo...

Well I dropped my stang off at the mustang shop this morning to get o/r h pipe with flowmasters and tune. I already had cai so my stang should be pretty bad *** I'm thinking! What are your thoughts?

Re: stock gt's that have been tuned ONLY!

i agree. all i have is a CAI and tune, its badass bro. my car spins so bad in second on the race tune that my back end slides a little til the traction control kicks in. shift points are much firmer, and it sounds louder even with stock exhaust. i tested it one night and my car threw me into the seat shifting at 85 mph!

I wanted a stick too but I just had a baby so I figured an auto would be easier. Can't wait to pick it up. A definite upgrade bro, from a civic to a bad *** stang!

Re: stock gt's that have been tuned ONLY!
