    With the automatic I would recommend your first mod should be a tuner...it will help elimate that horrible throttle response from a dead stop... and improve your shifting... have you tried doing a burnout yet? LOL! (let me know if/when you do! )

    I think around here you'll find most of us are running the SCT X-Cal2.... Everyone has there favorite dealer/tuner... Mine happens to be Alternative Auto. They've got some good info and dyno sheets on their website:

    Thanks for the recommendation scrming looks like Ill have to start saving my pennies at 399 that thing isnt cheap....... But looks worth it. Is having it tuned something I should have a shop do or is it something I can do myself? I know very little about on board computers and how they work in cars. I understand what they do in theroy but in practice thats something else entirely.

    A tuner for your car will give you the most bang for your buck... It will make a night and day difference! It's something anyone an use! LOL! The SCT X-Cal2 is very easy to use. You simply plug it into the ODB-II port located on the bottom edge of the dash just under the steering wheel (and a little to the left)... then you simply follow the on screen directions. And that's it! You'll think your driving a completely different car! LOL! There is also a nice little "Return to Stock" option for when you have to take your car in for service... The Predator will work the same way...

I havent tried doing burn outs yet but then again Im on an AF Base I do stuff like that around here my commander will eat me alive the next day. Not to mention I cant afford new rubber.
