I've run the 87, 89, and 91 tunes. Loved them all, but my favorite is the 89 tune. Just uploaded the 87 tow tune for an upcoming trip with our travel trailer.

If AIW is able to update the device to store two tunes plus the stock tune, it'll be Game Over for all other tuners.

I was hesitant when I spent the money but now I'm glad I did. If the device will hold one more tune that will be awesome! I was kind of hoping Rick would elaborate and confirm or deny this claim......maybe even give an idea of time frame if it's true

That would change the game for sure.

With the 87 tow tune, my fuel mileage is the same. However, performance is way better!

Just got my tracking number from Rick! I'll be like a puppy staring out the widow waiting for the delivery man.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. Right after mine shipped and I got my tracking #, I was REALY wishing I had paid for next day shipping. After tuning, give the computer a bit to figure out your driving habits (again) and enjoy.

Having had a Superchips tuner and reading about Bully Dog and SCT, I am so glad I went to the LMS tuner. Just the peace of mind was worth it, but I got a great tune as well!

So every time you swap tunes or try a new one it has to "relearn"? Lately my driving style has been "grandma-like" trying to maximize mpg by setting cruise control right at speed limit, accelerating slowly, etc. I don't plan on driving like that forever but have been trying to see what kind of numbers I can get mpg wise. Once I get the tune I think I'll drive more "normal" with the occasional pedal mashing when a flashy Dodge Ram or punk kid in a ricer pull up next to me. How long is this "relearning" process for the computer, trans, etc?
