Not a waste, but not very great
Installation of this product was a breeze. The switch they give you to switch tunes is pretty sorry to say the least, I was planning on mounting it somewhere but it is so small and cheap feeling that I decided not to concern myself with it, so I just stuffed it under the dash where I can easily reach it. The anti-theft tune is a cool feature but I am unable to use it. i am assuming it cuts the fuel off (or supposed to cut the fuel off anyways), but on my car it dumps the fuel so much raw, unburned gasoline was spitting out my exhaust pipes. That's not supposed to happen so I dont know where they screwed up as far as that goes. As far as my performance, once I advanced my timing from their suggested -10 tdc, i was able to notice more midrange power but my top end honestly feels a little slower, it kind of falls on its face after 4200 rpm, but from 2300ish to about 4200, i can notice a considerable gain, but not what I was hoping for. I have gained fuel mileage even on the race tune, I have yet to see what kind of economy mileage i can get on the 87 octane tune. I was a little disappointed with it, I may send it back and have them do something different with the tunes. The car does run smoother, though not smooth enough but I am happy with that.
