I haven't seen the best mileage increase like others are stating. I jumped from 13/14 to 16 with my 285's on. I put my 265's back on to see if I would really get a jump and its not any better. I am going to change my fuel filter and see if thats the issue. But power wise, its a great great tuner. GEt one NOW if you've been tooling with the idea..

Programmer price

I'm hesitant to give any web sites and prices because of site policy's and buying from sponsor's of this site but I can tell you that I googled "PPE XCELERATOR STANDARD PRICES" and did come up with prices in the $450.00 range. There are some that offer free shipping as well.

I presently have the Superchip Flashpaq but am looking at the PPE XCELERATOR STANDARD due to it's ability to block the DTC emission 40x codes due to aftermarket exhaust and the EGR blocker.

I've been using the PPE Standard for a year now with 285's, downpipe, intake, and straight pipe exhaust, averaging 19 MPG on the 120 HP tune. I have the LLY motor. That is an average, not just highway. Towing two race cars on a trailer, I averaged 16 MPG highway.

My only gripe is that it doesn't feel that much faster than stock. I've played with different stages and back to stock and there wasn't too too much of a difference other than slightly quicker turbo spool, and quick downshifts.

Any recommendations to get a bit more power without killing the mileage guys?

I just installed the ppe standard on level 4 last weekend. So far I am very happy with the power, but the shifts are rough after 2nd gear or so. How long does it take the tranny to learn. Also I have a 6k pound travel trailer. Do we have to set the tune to a lower level to tow? The guy I bought the tuner from says no so long as you are easy on her. I just dont want to tear my Ally up. Any advice would be much appreciated...
