ya, i would do it. besides the times your running your car at wot, it might get better gas milage :gringreen then again, when you first get it, its hard not to test it all the time just to make sure its working right :hihi:

jlt,powerfull great cai, sctx3 its pretty much the standard for dyno guys and tunes, and get the combo from tillmans and i`ll tell you why. tillman is a site sponsor. thats huge in my book. and the price is right. your gonna give someone the cash for the tuner, give it to a sponsor. then you can order a tune from bama any time. the 3 you get from tillman will run great too, so get a 87-89 performance, a high octane performance, and a race tune. ive got a bama race tune also, and i`d buy one from brenspeed, but i dont think they cater much to the v6`s. i`m still running tillmans. (now, if bama chips would step up to the plate, that would be a different story)

So i'm new to this like I said earlier, can you explain to me exactly what this tuner from Tillmans is going to do? I seen when i chose the tuner you recommended, it gave me 3 options like you listed -- what are the 3 options going to do? So i'm buying the tuner from Tillmans, but you said i could go over to bama and order a tune from them at anytime, so whats the difference? It seems like i keep reading on here people are ordering from bama a combo kit for around 5-600 that includes the tuner and a cold air intake or something of that nature?

Sorry for the stupid questions, just not really sure on all of this computer stuff! So please ignore my ignorance!
hey theres nothing to be sorry about and for sure not stupid. that combo from tillmans is about 500. ( if you want to spend more you could get the c&l cai, but its in the same performance catagory) with the tunes, get a 87-89 performance, in case gas gets back to 5.00+ a gal( and it will) get a high octane( 91 or 93 whatever is available in your area) performance in case your running your race tune with premium and decide to take a trip, it gets better milage. getting tunes from different companys is just a option if your interested in seeing if one might be better than the other.50-75.00 a tune. my car runs great with either tune. i`ll buy parts from anyone if they can beat the sponsors deal. but the tuners are the same price no matter where you get it. we need to support our sponsors and keep this website strong. :bigthumbsup

So basically, from Tillmans, im buying tunes for 87-89 performance and then 91/93 performance and that will help with milage if i want to take a trip or will help the performance of my stang. So what is "FI" and all of that? And from Tillmans for that 500.00, is it just for the tunes and nothing else? I keep seeing people say buy the tunes and a cold air intake, should i just do the tunes and buy a CAI from someone else or buy it as a combo or?

Thanks for the help guys, im starting to understand this and i definitely appreciate ya'lls help with me being a newbie!
its the combo package as explained in post #5. jlt cai/ sctx3 tuner/ 3 custom tunes. most places have the tuner for 379.00( and a little discount from out venders) your gonna get a good cai and tunes for pretty darn cheap price.
