Re: quick question

custom tunes can be had for close to the same price as the cts. you will definatly be happier(and your trans will thank you) with a simple custom tune. imho

Check out power hungry performance. They can custom tune a cts and you'll have gauges too.

Re: quick question

If i only had 900 to spend id much rather have gauges and just live with the crappy performance until i have enough to get the programmer.
