That's the only difference I can feel. But then again, my butt dyno might need calibration.

Minor differences in torque and shifting w/ autos. Street tune tends to focus on improving lower end torque while race is more for top end power and quicker shifts.

That's right, tunes have more options when you drive an auto. But men don't drive automatics.

Street focuses on more lower end torque

Real race tunes require race gas..100 octane or better.

Street is low end and fuel economy. Takes less throttle to get to said speed. Just have to pay attention to that and you'll save gas.

Race tune is high end power. Never tried it. But I have tried the hybrid tune. According to a bama tuner I spoke with earlier this week, the hybrid just has a more sensitive throttle response like the street. And that's what gives it the feel it is better. Also race tune turns off your rear o2 sensors to run more exhaust out since our exhaust valves are the ones that are variable

I agree. Street tune is slightly better gas mileage (1-2mpg) and thats about it.
Race tune seems like it hangs between shifts a little; So set it to race and forget it.

Besides the difference is so marginal, a driver mod would get you more hp/tq

I'm currently testing a GT tune on my v6 from bama. It's a 87 street tune. So far I get 22-23 mpg city and 34 hwy @65. I've been playing with the setting of it though. Gonna let them know at the end of the month and hopefully we will have an "economy" tune like the 5.0's


My 93 performance tune is very balanced but gets very bad highway milage. The same for the race.
