i've been running a 90hp(bigger then 90 to a 100 hp is not suggested if you want your stock tranny to last a long time)tune on my LBZ for my regular driving the last 60k miles and never had any problems other then the rear tires wear quicker but that might be the throttle position sensor:tease:rof:fartm oh and i gained roughlt 3 mpg over all with the exhaust and CAI mod and the PPE..

Ok...so the 2nd setting is 90HP. But it is called the Tow Setting...is it bad to run the truck in Tow setting if I'm not towing? And will it give me better Gas mileage? Because I plan on setting the programmer on one setting....and running it like that till my truck dies. And I don't feel comfortable modding my CAI...I get nervous and would probably slaughter the plastic too much or something. So will running the stock CAI hurt me if I'm running an extra 40 or 90?
let me tell you if this white boy can do it so can you,but if you only plan on 90 extra hp i wouldn't worry about the CAI.

i found out that i get my best fuel economy on the 2nd setting(90hp)and you don't have to worry about the tranny going kaboom but try to keep the WOT in the highers gears at a minimum..WOT=Wide Open Throttle
