A few thoughts, ideas and questions: How are these rigs dynoing at just 31X? A 390HP should hit 325 to 330 on a regular (non-mustang) machine. So, WTF?

Next, ain't no way you got 66 HP just from a tune. Nope. Did you dyno the set up before the tune, all mods in? The tune must have opened the door for the already existing ponies that your PCM locked down. I would hate for people here to think, and for Hemifever to have to replicate on a stock engine, a 66 rwhp gain. What Hemifever HAS done though is unlock a boatload of power, MIA due to your stock parameters. For that, mucho kuddos to him.

Finally, the valve you speak of explains why I feel a rush of power 3 to 5 seconds after I have already throttled it. It is almost like a small amount of turbo lag. Does the tuner give you control of this valve?
