i have 89 perf 91torque and 91 per but havent tried the last two. At first the mileage was great like 18-19 with the mod in my signature but have declined in the recent months but I think it is due to a driveshaft problem and low air in the tires.

I use Sniper tuning software and i love it. No empty loaders to worry about. I write my own tunes on my laptop and have a realtime data logger. So i can watch whats actually going on. And adjust to whatever tire size i want.

I have a 2002 ford explorer 4.0 with a cold air intake and exhaust and i was thinking of getting one of these xcals. Which one should i get xcal2 or 3?Would you guys say its worth the $389? I hear it comes with 2 tunes i would like a mileage one and i dont know what i want my other one to be i would like some more power but which gives more power a torque mode or performance? What have you guys seen with the mileage tune? Is the performance or torque tunes noticeable? Thanks

Those with the mileage tune what did you gain? Those with performance and torque tune whats the difference between the two? Shift points? Could you feel a hp difference?

99 ranger xlt. 4.0 OHV
Anyone still around who was commenting on this thread? :confused2: I've got a 99 ford ranger xlt. Just had rebuilt the engine with 432 cam. Higher compression pistons ect. Purchased a megasquirt 2 and built the whole thing just for my tech guy (I dont know anything about tuning or ecu stuff) to tell me it wasn' going to work due to my auto trans taking signal directly from the ecu and the mega quirt didn' have a connection for it. Im really just looking for a way to do live data logging and adjust a/f ratio ect. She is going to get a supercharger and possibly a 75-100 wet shot but I need to figure out this tuning thing first :( any help is much appreciated.
