Yeah - I'm looking forward to it. Don't know if my turbos will be installed by then since I have no idea what I'm doing or skill haha! But I should be there with/without truck! If weather permits and truck is down, I'll rent a scoot and enjoy the ride

Good luck getting her done - would love to see it...

You guys are having way too much fun down there BTW....love the updates on Facebook lol...Caddy never stood a chance hahahaha...enjoy

haha, it sounds like whole different truck. we tried to play with the A/F ratio tables today but it didnt get us anywhere. there is some limiter that we just cant find that is keeping our 60 ft in the 2.3 range. it pulls great above 3500rpms all the way to the rev limiter of 6k. down low during WOT it is doggy, but at part throttle in traffic the low end isnt bad. with the tuning changes yesterday it was good for .3 better than the stock tune could do.
