yea thats the same setup I am running on my truck. The truck does have alot more pep in it and shifts so much better. I think it is only a 20 hp increase though but I like it. I havent got around to see what the mpg is yet but I run the 87octane setting alot just cause I do alot of driving

I have a TBS installed on my truck, and honestly could not tell a difference with it on hp or mpg wise, only thing noticeable is a very cool whistling noise from it.
