TCM: shift delay removed in auto stick move shift points higher up in band removed torque management increased shift pressure firmness 10% in auto 20% sport 25% in manual etc etc.
These are all by choice and mad tuner makes the tune for you.
ECM: adjusted knock retard and tuned for premium fuel to increase roughly 15 hp and 15 tq
I spent more on my corsa and volant and all they added was eye candy and noise. Mad tuners adjustments gave noticeable improvements.

Re: ECM and TCM locations? 2005 STS v8
I second that, noticeable improvements!!!!!! I didn't get any hp increases but the TCM adjustments makes my car feel stronger, I use to avg 75-80mph now im hovering around 90-95 it holds third gear longer and speed climbs quick, before the tune when the car got to third gear the power would drop and then catch up but now there is no drop 1,2,3, I punch it and i'am gone lol!!! in my chester cheetah voice (well worth it)
