    That was me, and the only thing special about it was it had a pivot head to it. Otherwise, a deep socket 15mm, a short extension, and wratchet and you're all set!

    Have you gone back to VT and shared the result? It seemed like VT's tune was a bit of a work in progress for some of the early adopters. Just wondering if the tune has evolved.

    [QUOTE=tunedATS;12877658]Yeah Diablo's handheld looks very cool...By the way, my 93 VT tune only gained me 6.5 peak hp over stock...234 stock vs 241 VT tuning 93 tune...Just seems Diablo is spending the extra time on R&D to dial something better in...I might pick up that Diablo tune and do a dyno and lay it over the VT tuning tune...But I'm pretty confident it will be better than a 6.5hp gain...[/QUOTE

    if you only picked up 6.5 you wouldn't even feel it at all . I can tell you mine is night and day and its faster even with the ac on . I also just dropped under 5.0 sec 0-60 . 4.95 . My gtimerkeeps the 10 best runs . I have alot of 5.0 5.05 5.15 .

    Don't expect these results with a full tank of gas or hotter than 70 * and a lot of practice . Lol

    I'm also short shifting . I'm pretty sure I'm in 3rd before I hit 60 . You can reach 60 in 2nd with the auto but times will suffer .

    Yeah, you gotta shift into 3rd before you hit 60 for the manual.

    For the VT tune, peak power maybe only +6.5 hp but he is probably gaining a lot more early on in torque and power so he is still gaining usable power that he can feel.
