Default 2011 Tuners

I know this topic has been beaten to death but when the 2011 tuners are actually released what do you plan on using yours for? Power? Fuel Ecomony? Just to have one to be cool like everyone else?

I plan on attempting to regain some fuel economy lost by lifting and larger tires

If I could regain a bit of mileage from my tire upgrade itd be sweet, but honestly I just want more get up and go. The middle gears feel so sluggish it kills everytime I mat it.

At almost four and half bucks a gallon, I'm shooting for fuel economy. But 1st truck owner and quite new to the uses of a tuner. So if I get one it'll be because all the cool kids have them

Power. I'll be paying for 93 octane every fill up once they release these and I have never even tried the economy tunes out on any tuner for any vehicle I ever owned.

And one thing people may not realize is that a properly tuned vehicle will return both better power/performance and better mpg. Our trucks run really rich stock and leaning them out will net us the horses and fuel mileage we all want.
