    I dont know what you drive but i was happy with a hypertech programmer, I drive a suburban so unless I get some internals done I am not gonna notice power from a tune was my belief, but I did get a 1-1.5 MPG increase, so for me it was worth it, considering I only got 13MPG combined. Also though my tranny shifts much quicker and smoother and having the added feature of adjusting the tire size whenever I want is nice to. So for 215 shipped from summit racing I have already made my money back on the investment, after three fill-ups

    I agree with the custom tune, being obd1 and your mods, you would benefit more from a custom tune.
